Working with What You Have

As many of you know, I am a bit of a shopaholic.  I do love to shop and am a sucker for a sale.  Recently I have decided that I'm not going to buy anything unless it's absolutely necessary.  That brings me to the title of my post...Working with What you Have.  

Step 1:  Purge  
I went through my closet and got rid of anything I haven't worn in a year or so.  I made piles 
a) to sell on my blog click here for post, consignment, or eBay 
b) Goodwill 
c) give to friends or family

Step 2: What's left?  
Now that the extra stuff taking up space is gone, I can really take a good look at what I have to work with. 
Step 3:  Put together different outfits.  
I was actually surprised at how many different outfits I could put together with a few key pieces.  Think outside of the box and mix and match.  

Here are my key pieces for Summer:
Maxi dress
Tanks and tees to pair with shorts 
(I buy knit tops cheap at Old NavyTarget, or Forever 21)
Bright chino shorts
White skinny jeans 
Cut-off denim shorts (I've had a pair for 6 years that I love) 
Similar Version
Cute, comfy flats

These few key pieces can be mixed and matched for several different summer wardrobe options.  
Throw in some fun accessories and you're set!
