I really wanted to go thrifting this weekend, but I can’t bring myself to bring more crap into the house until it has been cleaned and organized better.

So I am really going to get on the girls’ backs this weekend to get this shit done.

I wonder if I just start packing the stuff up in boxes and put it by the front door to bring down to donate, if that will motivate them?

I was watching a lot of 90s movies recently, and it’s funny when you start to pay attention to the fashion in the movies you will really notice the 90s minimalism.

Which is why I put together a 90s capsule wardrobe yesterday with that theme. I was feeling inspired.

I also have an Over 40 Spring Capsule style guide up on the site that I posted on Sunday.

And I am also second guessing my reasoning for deciding to strip my bed and wash all the bedding at 10 pm.

Not my brightest idea.

The rosette brooch I ordered came in this week along with my sneakers. You can see me wearing them both here, and just sneakers here.

I am thrilled with both purchases. Also, the jeans that I ordered from JD sports came a month and a half after I ordered them. It took them that long to ship.

The next thing I am looking for is an oversized denim shirt like the one by Khaite which I am absolutely not paying $900 for.

I’m currently searching secondhand, but I have also seen a few on sale for $30-ish dollars that I am pondering over.

I think I might just spend the next hour or so scrolling through Poshmark. And if you are in Canada and sign up for Poshmark using my referral they’ll give you $15 off your first purchase.

Also, heads up to those of you that live in the UK, because Poshmark UK is coming your way soon which is exciting.

It would be even better if they opened up the market between all the different country platforms that they offer. The logistics would be a nightmare, but one can dream.
