spring cleaning


I returned from the honeymoon with lots of energy - and the first thing that I wanted to tackle was a major spring cleaning of the house and my wardrobe.  I hate to admit it, but a significant fraction of my current wardrobe was also in my drawers when I was in college.  It is time to say goodbye.  I would like to step outside my jeans, flats, and a cotton t-shirt routine and explore some new things.

Here are some of the items I would like to look for this spring/summer (obviously cheaper versions):

1. the classic Burberry double breasted trench coat from Saks.com

2. a beautiful, simple black leather very high heel (this one by Christian Louboutin)
3. a classic work appropriate dress in a pretty abstract print (Marsha dress from Tory Burch)
4. a bright scarf made by Ethiopian weavers for J. Crew, Lemlem Omo Scarf
5. a summer sundress in a dusky lavender (this one from J. Crew)
(imagine this with a brown leather belt and brown strappy sandals)
6. a strappy brown summer flat (Steve Madden)
(I sort of can't tell if I like these...
I really like the top view but not sure I like the back zipper)
So there are just a few of the wardrobe items I am thinking about.   I need more practical wardrobe and would like to have fewer items that were more functional and higher quality. I am trying not to buy more distressed/embellished cotton t-shirts, party shoes,  and party dresses...
