I wore this on Saturday while the temperatures were warm and sunny. By Sunday morning, I was wrapped tightly in my fluffy robe and scooting around the house in fuzzy slippers all day long. We went from glorious spring weather to freezing rain in less than 12 hours. I left the house once to get the mail (in my robe) and almost went stir crazy being cooped up indoors all day. Just as I organized my closet and moved all my sweaters to the tip top of my closet, Mother Nature decided to give us a little a surprise.

Speaking of organizing closets, I added over two dozens items to Poshmark this weekend. I have a pile of things that I am still on the fence about selling/donating. Quite frankly, I am contemplating about removing some pieces that I already listed. I don't know why it's so hard for me to let go of clothes, ones that I haven't worn in months, even years. Maybe because one day I will wear them again, like this orange coat I have had since high school. Yes, HIGH SCHOOL.
When a piece of mine sells, I sometimes get a lump in my throat knowing that someone else wanted it. How will they style it? Could I have remixed it better? Did I get my money's worth when I did own it? Dangit, why did I just sell that dress, skirt, shirt, shoes, etc. They are clothes, Shanna. They are not some treasured antique or a family heirloom. Most of them of them have zero meaning. So why do I get so attached? Who knows. Maybe I need help or intervention.
For instance, the utility vest I am wearing in today's post came so close to being tossed in the Poshmark sell stack. It was hanging with all my other items that I listed, but for some reason I decided to keep it. At the last minute, before we were leaving the house, I layered it over my maxi dress and chambray. It ended up completing the style. Looks like I am keeping this one a little while longer.
It's a vicious circle. Is anyone else out there running in it with me? Please tell me I am not alone.
