WIWW: Simplifying.

Tunic & Necklace: Anthropologie // Dark wash flared jeans: Nordstrom Rack // Oxford’s: Off Broadway Shoes.





My birthday is only a week away, woohoo! For my birthday, my mother-in-law took me shopping while she was in town this weekend. These jeans were one of the things I got. They were only $20 at Nordstrom Rack, which is now on my list of stores to check out often. Such great deals! I decided to update my wardrobe a bit for my birthday. Finding pieces that work for meetings with potential clients, but are also comfortable enough to hang out in at a coffee shop or around the house. This has propelled my desire to streamline my wardrobe.

I just want to get rid of absolutely anything I haven’t worn in the last six months or don’t really love. I have so much clutter going on in my drawers and my closet right now and most of it I don’t wear. There are a lot of things I’m sad to let go of, but why hold onto things we don’t really care for anymore? It usually leads to frustration when trying to find something to wear. So if you haven’t done it in a while, I’m here to challenge you to donate anything you’re not loving. You may not like or wear a certain piece anymore, but someone else is going to love it. You’ll feel SO much better once it’s done, trust me.

That’s definitely my big project this week, de-cluttering and donating. I just want to simplify as much as possible this Spring and considering Spring has just sprung, what better time than now?

P.S. Thank you SO much for your help on choosing a pair of Warby Parker glasses. I’m still deciding, but I think I’m leaning toward a certain pair. I’ll let you know which pair I go for soon!

    This outfit looks amazing on you! Great finds! What does the whole shoe look like?

  • you look great, Katy! happy almost birthday =) I totally identity with what you’re saying about decluttering and cleaning out your wardrobe! I did this right before my birthday in October – such an AWEsome feeling. but I need to do more when I get back to the States, as well as in other parts of my house. I’ve found that it’s easier for me to get rid of stuff if I take a picture of it (could even do it with the clothing item on, and then at least for me makes it even easier because I remember why I should get rid of it, lol) or for more sentimental things, like old tshirts for example, make something fun out of them. good luck!

  • Those jeans are amazing! only $20?! great find!

  • I love your outfit. It is so cute!

  • Love those jeans… so cute!! :) Awesome steal.

  • Why, thank you! So glad you like the blog. Oh, I LOVE a good deal! Even though it was birthday shopping, I was not willing to spend five times that for jeans when I found a great pair for a reasonable price. Good deals make my day!

  • Me too! Almost feel silly if I’m not wearing color, now that it’s spring.

    YOU are gorgeous as always. Thank you for your sweet words, friend! :)
