Things I've learned:
- I got a little lazy and didn't "clear" last season from my closet. Wow. What a mistake that was... I corrected it and started not to hate the morning routine so much, again.
- I did such a fantastic job of clearing my closet last fall and winter of shoes I didn't like that I nearly had a shoe crisis this year... Literally, I had one pair of dress shoes and 2 pairs of boots. And one of those pairs of boots wasn't work worthy. I survived, but man. That was stressful. Not a cheap item to replace in bulk!
- Dressing for the position you want is important. And gets noticed. (Also, I bought my first blazer that I actually like!)
- It's fine to decide that some favorite (and not so beautiful) items are fine to keep for weekends. (I almost don't consider them a part of my capsule... But I also own not too many of them. Ok. I should probably rein in my sweatshirts.)
