Neglected - Pink and Gray Stripes
When I was looking through my closet and blog archives, I was surprised at how many things I haven't worn in a long time. So in the heat of the moment, I decided I should add "last date blogged" to my closet spreadsheet. It's getting really nerdy, you guys. Anyway, it has been really interesting for me to see what things I am neglecting! Some of the items just aren't making the blog, like my fuchsia stocking cap, which I wear almost every day of the winter, but remove before taking pictures, because it is outerwear! But other things are really just taking up space in my closet and not being worn. I found 72 items that haven't been on the blog in the last year. And since I blog almost every outfit, this means I haven't worn most of these things in the last year.
Some of these items are going straight in the donate/sell piles. But a few are things I like, and decided I needed to wear. So I'm going to be working these into the rotation, and hopefully get away from having so much stuff that I don't even wear!
Which brings me to this sweater. If memory serves, I bought it in 2009 on the day after Christmas, when Gap was having their big buy one, get one free sale on sweaters. I bought this gray sweater in the same trip, but it gets worn a lot more. I do think I wore this striped sweater quite a bit for a couple years, but just not since I started blogging. Or maybe I wear it on days when I don't take pictures? I don't know. But it's pretty and cozy and I think it deserves some love. So I wore it on a very cold day in early February.
Oh, and just for the record, I should have done the trick where you wear a camisole between the button shirt and the sweater, because I have some awkward little bumps where the buttons are sticking out. (And I feel the need to point out that my belly button has not popped at this point of pregnancy).
