Day 22: What’s Inside the Closet


Anyone who knows much about me knows I have some issues with commitment … It’s completely unintentional – I just feel things become stale when they stay the same way too long. Because of this, as you can imagine, a girl racks up some numbers. I’ll be honest- I have about 30 regulars, plus an additional 100 (okay maybe 150) or so that I use in between when the mood strikes me. I know that sounds like a lot, but if it makes you happy, it can’t be that bad – pardon the dated Sheryl Crow reference – right?

I mean, I don’t lose who I am in the process. I’d like to think I’m an open-minded person and this area of my life is no exception. I don’t discriminate. I’m accepting. Height, weight, color, price – I’ve seen the entire spectrum. I grant a lot of chances even after I’m bruised and blistered. Of course I have to throw a few out along the way, but overall, I like to keep my options open so I can move on to the next any time I want. I commit to all by committing to none.

Today, I may have found the one… or rather the two. These little black, pointed Sam Edelman’s may be my perfect pair of shoes. At least for today, anyway.

Day 20: Seasonal Closet


Growing up in Arizona, you had only had two wardrobes. Summer attire and a sweatshirt for the dead of winter. That was one of the best things about moving to Kentucky when I was 18. Winter clothes. Scarves, jackets, coats, hats, gloves… I went crazy. And every season is a little different, so you get to have a huge wardrobe that gets packed away every couple of months, then reintroduced right about the time you forget what you have.

The weather lately has been disgusting. Hot, muggy and without rain for weeks. I had moved most of my winter clothes downstairs to the basement and brought up what I thought was most of my summer clothes a few weeks ago. Today, I was doing some rearranging and found a box of great summer dresses and fun, flowy tops. It’s like shopping in a store with great taste where everything is your size.

So today, I’m thankful for the shifting seasons and my shifting closet. I know I won’t have the space or the means to be quite so materialistic in Europe, so I’m going to enjoy my seasonal wardrobe while I can.
