WIWS: For the Birds

Lately I've been looking to rediscover old items in my closet. With social media at my fingertips, it's easy to try to, "keep up with the Joneses". There's always a new dress, the latest purse, or a new pair of shoes to be bought. By no means am I against shopping, it's one of my favorite pastimes! I love pretty new things, but sometimes I forget about what I have in my closet. 
And that's a whoooolle lot! A whole lot to be thankful for, too! 

This Sunday, I went back to my closet and  pulled out a shirt that I've only worn a couple times and a basic A-line skirt. Two items that I rarely wear, but two items that I really like. While this outfit is simple, I was comfortable and needed very little layering. Plus, I remembered how much I loved wearing this skirt!

The benefits of wearing old items/recycling your closet:
                                         - It allows you to step outside your fashion box and try new styles
                                         - It's budget friendly
                                         - You are less likely to run out of room in your closet since you are buying less!

So, I've decided that August will include some sort of recycling challenge.
{This girl is totally guilty of wearing something once and then never again!} Details to come!

Happy Monday!
