WIW and wardrobe edit

Hi everyone! Long time no post, I know!

I spent the day yesterday doing a much needed wardrobe edit, and for the first time catalogued my wardrobe in finds too. It was fun, and I’m delighted at the current state of my wardrobe, and plan to play with the random outfit generator!

By the end of the day, I was left with 110 pieces across four seasons (not counting accessories, shoes, underwear or sleepwear). I actually like all 110 pieces and they fit properly (I think).

I don’t have a great outfit photo setup, but wore today a top and jacket that I was on the fence on for for and comfort. The top is one that I wonder if the shoulders are a bit wide. But I still like it. And the jacket is one I visually like but squeaks with certain movements and is heavy.

So today was a trial for both. In the end, the squeaking didn’t bother me at church, but at home I swapped it out for a cardigan, and I liked the floral top enough to keep.

I’d love your feedback, positive or negative, and thanks for letting me pop in to say hello! I hope to post now and then again :)

    It's a cute outfit for sure!  You look beautiful.  I like the jacket it looks vintage, but if you don't like the way it feels, I'd get rid of it.  I got rid of a white leather jacket last year because it was stiff.  It was hard to do because it was real leather and in pristine condition.  Life's too short for wardrobe items with issues, or so say I.

    Super pretty! I like the pairing of the jacket and shoes. If the squeaking wasn’t a bother I’d keep it, but clothes that make noise do really bother me...

    Also: waving hello! :) How have your kids liked this past year, eh ?! :o

    Great to see you again. Nice look. The shoes bookend the jacket. Well done.

    I really love that jacket on you, such a great colour. I wonder if there is something that can be done to stop the jacket squeaking...

    So nice to see you! I like the jacket with the shoes, and like the top too. Agree that it might be possible to condition whichever part of the jacket that is squeaking. You look fab!

    Great outfit, love the shoes. I'm glad the jacket worked when you wore it out, I always prefer a sweater around the house so it makes sense to me to swap it when you get home.

    Amiable so lovely to see you! I hope the family is doing well. I love this photo and feel the jacket works. But if you don’t love it and can’t make the squeak go away perhaps look for a replacement. Also just a mention that your hair is looking lush and gorgeous.

    Nice to see you, Amiable!  Great ‘comeback’ outfit.  FINDS is a great closet management tool, and a lot of fun to boot.

    KILLER look, and soooo fun to see you post again, Amy! Good job on the wardrobe edit too.

    Thanks for the warm welcome everyone!  My family has fared quite well during the past year - our tiny town was only locked down for a few months, and life has largely resumed to normal, just with masks on wherever we go.  I'm grateful that it was so easy on us!

    Love your hair this length and the shoes with the jacket. It is good to see you.

    You look lovely, cute outfit!

    Late here but nice to see you again! You look great and I love the outfit. You’ll have to decide if you can deal or fix the squeaking, but issues with the weight of the jacket would give me more pause. If you do decide it’s not working for you, you might consider finding a similar topper that checks off all the boxes because I really think this is a good look for you.
