Clean Out (See Jane Find...and Wear)

H&M skirt (old but similar here) + oxford, Banana Republic vest (old), Chloe bag (new color/style here), Zara flats, Super sunglasses
I've been trying to clean out my closet for months and it's definitely been a work in progress.  When I find old gems like this skirt (worn here) it makes me realize there's a lot more where that came from.  I'll continue to work on this tedious project all summer but sometimes it's fun to go back to things I thought I'd never live without and realize I've forgotten about it for the past two years--like this striped, mini skirt.


Have a great weekend!

WHOA, how could you neglect a gem like that for two years; it is so whimsical and fun! (totally have pieces like that, so, being facetious but seriously a great, great piece)

Rediscovering old closet items is the best! This skirt is awesome and looks great paired with safari-style vest. I'm recently realizing I cleaned out some pieces from my closet that would have been perfect for this season :(. Now I plan to err on the hoarder side and never get rid of anything...

Ah! I remember seeing that skirt at H&M ages ago. It looks fab as you've styled it.

I've recently started the same process of cleaning out my closet and then consigning old items. Nice way to subsidize my shopping habit.
