last weekend found me in the mall. it was ‘friends and family’ event at banana republic.
i was looking for a new interview suit but then had a change of heart after i asked whether i can still ‘work with what i got’ – i own a black pant suit (2009) – i don’t love but can make it work. so, instead of a suit i bought:
- 100% silk button-down blouse (burgundy) – something a little different to wear with my suit than the standard crisp white or blue cotton button-down shirt; and
- a black merino wool cardigan. i needed an updated black cardi.
when i got home i decided to take an “in-with-the-new-out-with-the-old” approach and did a quick closet purge. my ‘donation’ pile now includes:
- 3 piece grey suit (jacket, pants, skirt) – loved this jacob suit (it had a good long run, 6 years i think)
- 1 pant suit
- 3 skirts
- 1 red corduroy blazer
it felt really good.
