Preparing My Fall Wardrobe
Sad thing, right?
Although summer is not officially over, my wardrobe is making quite a change. I am going from my favorite pair of cutoffs worn everyday with a high school t-shirt to my first professional wardrobe for my first professional teaching job!
I spent some time last weekend giving my closet a good cleaning. I tried on everything that I had not worn in awhile, excepting special occasion wear. Items were either sorted back into the closet, put in a mending pile, or sent to Goodwill.
With each item I would ask:
- Is it too short? Into the pile to hem to a trendy ankle-length or up into a skirt.
- Is it too long? Into the pile to hem up to Dansko-clog height, the highest heel I will wear at school.
- Is it too loose? Fix with a belt.
- Is it still too loose? Try to take in. If it is beyond my sewing skills, donate.
Starting school will be a fun challenge. I will take on a teacher role, but hope to maintain a student financial status.
I am quite happy with my wardrobe. I have a great variety of versatile outfits that fit my personality, with a total investment of about $300.
