Swirly Lollipop Tee

It's a stat holiday here in Lotusland, so no work for me today, which means no need to wear work clothes.  I still put on something relatively bright for Visible Monday.
Pink Calico: Swirly Tee


I've been cleaning out my closet over the past week and have 4 big bags of clothing to donate.  I wanted to be able to put away clothes without having to stuff them into drawers or closets, so really thought about what I wanted to keep. 

Here's what helped me decide:

If the clothing makes you feel uncomfortable, donate it.  If you have to keep tucking it in, or pulling it up or down or otherwise adjusting it - just give it away.  If you feel ugly in it, donate it!  If you keep pulling it out of the closet to wear and then end up changing your mind - just toss it.  It's not worth taking up valuable closet space to store unusable clothing.

This swirly tee though, was one item I decided to keep - at least for a little bit.  I liked the lollipop-like print. But otherwise, I'm on a roll and tossing out stuff right and left!

Wish me luck!

  1. These are great guidelines for closet-cleaning, Narda. Right to the point, and let's not hang on to the not-good-enough pieces : > I really like your bright tee today and your signature scarf!

  4. Purging the closet is ALWAYS refreshing. I need to get TO it; thanks for the reminder. Here's another little trick I use (when I remember to)...when something comes IN, something else has to go OUT!
