Sarah's Real Life

You might have noticed that it has been a long time since my Week 1 Update of What to Wear. No, there has not been some kind of glitch in the space-time continuum. I just haven’t been using my cards every week. But I did last week, hence the update.

Wait, cards? What are you talking about, Sarah? If you are a relatively new reader of Sarah’s Real Life, or you just need a refresher, see this post, where I break down one of the ways I decide what to wear every day. To me, great style is not just about picking out the trendiest new items; it’s about how you put different pieces together. And when you have a ton of clothes and accessories and shoes like I do, sometimes it’s hard to know where to start.

The items on my card for the week were:

Check it out! These pics should all look familiar if you’ve been reading the past week…20120730-113554.jpg

My little card definitely came in handy this week! The wooden bead necklace was the perfect thing to add to my tourist ensemble and spice up my plain navy tee. The jacket was something I hadn’t worn in forever and was contemplating tossing, but once I wore it I realized I just had to embrace its costume-like quality and have fun with it! This silky cardigan was perfect over a dress for an evening out in Chicago. The yellow bow – I always forget I bought this little guy! – is a fun addition to any outfit. And I’m glad I challenged myself to fit this yellow skirt into a work-friendly outfit.

So…how do you decide what to wear? Leave me a comment! And if you want to be in the loop for future style adventures, use the links in the main menu (above) to follow me on Bloglovin’ or Twitter!

    I love the cards. Such a great idea! I’ve been trying to purge my closet but I’m such a hoarder. Maybe I should try something like this.


    • You should try it! (and let me know how it goes for you)…I do a mini-closet purge twice a year when I switch out my closet between summer and winter. As I’m folding things up to put away, sometimes I’ll realize that I went the whole season without wearing a certain item, and I really didn’t miss it. Then I’ll give it to Goodwill. Or, as I’m pulling things out of storage, I’ll think “WHY did I even buy this? there’s no point in putting this back in my closet!” Also Goodwill. Of course, if there’s something I haven’t worn in a while but it’s good quality and might come back in style, I’ll just keep it in storage.
