About this look...
I love making two pieces out of one garment in my closet. That's why I love to layer dresses under skirts or tops. This grey peter pan collar dress was purchased from ASOS about a year ago and hasn't been seen on the blog since then! Layered on top of it is my latest Poshmark purchase--a pretty pale pink pleated skirt (say that five times fast!). Keeping with the ladylike theme this outfit was taking, I added the patent bow belt and lace socks I've had in my closet for a while. But the pièce de résistance definitely has to be the chevron clutch I DIY'd! I'm so thrilled about it that I'll be showing you how I made it tomorrow, so definitely check back!

Thought of the day...
Spring cleaning has come a bit early for me this year. Over the weekend, I got the itch to go through my apartment and find a bunch of stuff that I can get rid of. So far, all I've really succeeded in doing is making a giant mess while filling two giant bags full of stuff.
Though I've known that I have way too many clothes, bags, and shoes, I was really surprised by how many beauty products I have. How many lipsticks, eye shadows, and hair products does one person really need? Though it felt like such a waste to throw this stuff out, I got rid of a quite a bit. Go me!
How do you stay on top of your beauty cabinet? I'd love to hear your strategy!
