I'm really terrible about getting rid of clothes. On one hand, I'll hang onto stuff that I haven't worn for years. On the the other, I've given items away and truly regretted it later. Either way, I agonize way too much over the decision to keep or donate. I recently attempted to do a spring closet clean-out with moderate success. Two of the items I'm wearing in this look--the skirt (worn as a sleeveless top) and the white pants--were in the giveaway pile. I hadn't worn the skirt in years but was keeping it for sentimental reasons. The pants I picked up for $5 at Urban Outfitters during the Sidewalk Sale last July, and they still had the tag on them. In the end, I decided to keep both items. But I have a rule for myself: I have to justify keeping garments that almost didn't make the cut by wearing them immediately! So I put together this look, and I really like the way it turned out. The floral print and white pants make it feel springy, but it's still appropriate for the not-so-springy weather we've been having. Also, I'm apparently really digging wearing skirts as anything but a skirt. How do you guys clean out your closets? How do you decide what stays or goes?
