My Style: March 2024

This month I gave myself the task of getting through the rest of my ‘winter-ish’ clothing while the weather was still chilly. In my experience, once we hit spring break, I’m mentally ready to pack away my heavy winter shirts and dresses and move on to brighter and lighter choices (even if the weather hasn’t quite caught up yet). So, this month I pulled out the items that I ignored for the last few months to make some ‘stay or go’ decisions.

Left: First up, this pattered Modcloth skirt I bought a few years ago. I love the pattern, the swish, the length and the pockets. However, the fabric is kind of slippery/cheap feeling. I paired it with a secondhand Kate Spade cardigan that was also on the chopping block. Verdict: They both stay.

Right: I’ve had this secondhand Anthropologie tank top for years and it’s starting to look a little dingy. However, I still like the pattern when paired with my linen skirt and secondhand cardigan. Verdict: Stay, for now.

Left: I bought this dress last year, but never ripped the tags off because it just felt like A LOT of pattern. I finally decided it was ‘wear it or sell it’ time, topped it with a belt and wore it to work for the day. Verdict: Stay.

Right: Another fully secondhand outfit and this H&M x Morris & Co collaboration skirt was on the chopping block. I love the length, pattern and striped waistband. However, it is a *little* tight in the waist. Verdict: Stay, but if it’s still tight next year I need to pass it on.

Left: This was actually my third outfit I tried on that morning, because two dresses I was considering ended up in the ‘donate’ pile before I even left the house. Verdict: Donated 2 dresses, but kept this one.

Right: I’ve had this dress for 5+ years — I thrifted it, wore it a few times, cut the sleeves off, and then wore it again. It’s okay. It’s just not a winner for me and by the end of the day I was eager to tear it off and throw in in the donate pile. Verdict: Donate.

  1. Hi, you look good in all of them, but when theygotta go, they gotta go.

    I am sorry to here about the bridge collapse in that area. I hope they are able to repair the bridge in a not so long time frame. I am so sorry for those families that lost members or those who lost friends. I hope this doesn’t impact you, too much. I know a bridge like that is probably used by so many.
    Looking forward to spring! Thanks for sharing.

    1. Thank you Nancy. We were impacted by the Key Bridge collapse, as my husband hauls sea containers out of the Port of Baltimore on a daily basis as a self-employed truck driver. Right now there is just a lot of stress and uncertainly until we have a better idea of when the port will reopen. Thankfully, he was not working the morning of the bridge collapse, so he is safe. Our thoughts are with those who lost their lives in this tragedy.
