sweater: american eagle pants: old navy scarf: discovery flats: target
I have way more clothes than I actually wear and quite often take way too long to get rid of something in my closet. It isn't until I go a really long time without wearing something that I consider getting rid of it. But then I often talk myself out of it because I have either a dumb sentimental feeling to an item of clothing or I convince myself it will be in style as soon as I drop it off at the thrift store.
This sweater is thankfully one that I didn't follow through with getting rid of even though I haven't worn it in years. After seeing a similar outfit in people magazine I'm glad I kept it, plus it is one of those items that comes with an emotional attachment. My girlfriends from high school used to have an annual Christmas party and secret santa throughout high school, college and a few years after. Sadly we haven't done it in a few years due to everyone living in different places, but this sweater was from my friend Shannon and makes me think about those high school sleepover days when I wear it.
Tell me I'm not alone with the emotional connection to clothing?
