30 Items, Neat In A Row...
Well, I destroyed my closet in choosing these thirty items, but here they are! (Now to just put everything back in order...goodbye, all other items not on my list!) There aren't too many surprises on this list--my wardrobe isn't huge anyways, so you will already see many of these items on a regular basis! I am pretty stoked about not having to include my winter coats, since those would have non-negotiably been on my list, taking up precious spots that could have been otherwise occupied!
Looking at my list, there are only a few holes that I see, and these holes are pretty much in my regular wardrobe as well. For example, a cute but comfy relaxing skirt that is fairly short (demanding little thing, aren't I?). I just filled one of the gaps I previously had--a thicker cardigan. I found an XL men's sweater with a great print that was in decent condition at the Goodwill, and I took it apart and then cut it down to fit me. I LOVE the longer length (it's a pet peeve of mine when my cardigans ride up) and the not-so-girly look to it. Pictures to come when it is light outside!

EDITED: I switched out my brown Champion tennis shoes for black Capelli rainboots on Day 2--the weather switched on a dime and it's pouring over here!
EDITED AGAIN: I switched out a short sleeve shirt for my Underarmour layering shirt due to crazy amounts of unpredicted snow!
