closet shake up

First off,  I wanna thank gorgeous Zanah of Mon Mode Blog for this award. Do visit her blog, I'm sure you'll love it as much as I do. 

And oh, this is my first award and I'm so honored. Thanks again Zanah!

Since this comes with listing down 7 facts about myself, here it is:

1. I'm a nurse who's planning to proceed to med school OR take a career detour and study fashion merchandising. I think career counseling will be a great help.
2. I think Ugg boots are not pretty but I have three pairs (that I sometimes use).
3. I am trying to outgrow my love of pink. I woke up one day and realized that most of my stuff are pink.
4. The first thing I do when I wake up is sleep again. What a bad habit. That's why I have to set my alarm clock 30 minutes earlier.
5. I'm not a fan of heights, speed, and balance. That's basically why I don't know how to bike.
6. I hate sodas. Not just because it's not good for the body but I just don't like the taste.
7. I wanna go to Italy and just eat. Okay, shop too.

That's it about me. I wanna pass this award to these lovely ladies: Rica (Sassy Rica), Sher (Beneath the Crystal Stars), Jing (Ki-at Ki-at), Valencia Lia (Roll Up Your Sleeve), and Michelle (Glisters and Blisters). You all deserve it!

Lastly, I wanna share an outfit I wore a couple of days ago. I did some closet shake up owing to the fact that I wanna get rid of some clothes to make room for new ones. Then I saw this lucky shirt I have since I was in high school. It meant so much to me because it's the memento of my oh-when-I-was-still-young-and-stupid days. I'm not throwing this one away. The back of the shirt says, "Don't gamble for love" (I forgot to take a picture of it and too lazy to do it right now). So now you have an idea of what I meant by saying young and STUPID. 

And I also couldn't believe I totally forgot I have this black boho skirt! Looking into my own closet (solemnly) never fails to surprise me.

Then I figured out it would be too nippy to wear just one scarf with that kind of neckline so I added another one. Look how green balanced the entire look.

What about you? What are your sentimental pieces? Do you also have a hard time letting it go? 

Enjoy the rest of the week lovelies!

Love the use of colors in this outfit! beautiful scarfs :)

I generally sell and buy at consignment stores when I'm looking for a closet overhaul. No attachments. I just want freshness.

But, it's always fun finding something you forgot about, like your skirt and lucky shirts. That's refreshing, too.

Hy there! Thanks for commenting on my page! It's great what you've done with the green scarf.
I'm also a pink lover, but I don't wanna grow out of love for pink, I really want to wear it more often since I can't wear it everyday because I go to work.

And yes, I have pieces that I love. I've had a couple of jeans that I was in love forever with.

Congrats on the award... you rock the boho chic look. And you are so pretty Betz!

Cheryl said...

Me too, I'm so no.4 in your list and I have a problem with balance. I still wiggle when I ride a bike.hahaha!

Congratulations on your award! Love how you mix your orange and green scarves with your pink shirt.I don't normally let go of my old things until they don't fit me anymore so just imagine the quantity of junk that I have right now.

Good luck on your quest for a "possible" career change.It's hard to decide when you can be your best in both worlds. ;)

I've added you in my blog roll.

Take care, Bets! :)

Nina said...

Hi Betz!

Congratulations on your award ... it is sooo well deserved!

I love how you just threw things together ... they make sense in one outfit. You're right, the green scarf balanced everything off like a charm! How inspiring ...


PS I also love pink, I can't bike, and I also never get up on time and take a few minutes snooze time even if the alarm clock has rung already!

Gosh, I love pink but I don't seem to have that many pink stuff! Weird:P

I love your boho skirt and the colourful scarves really add some flavour to the whole outfit!

There are so many sentimental pieces in my closet! Some are more precious because they were given from a special someone:)

What a dilemma: go for the career that is creative, or the one that could save lives? I don't envy you having to make that decision!

Omg you are only the 2nd person I've ever "met" that also doesn't know how to ride a bike!! Yay, this makes me feel somewhat less of a useless person lol.

Hey I did #7 from your list last summer - I had a blast! But make sure you're gonna be ready to gain a few pounds, too, lol. I ate so much in Italy, I'm pretty sure there wasn't a day when I didn't have pizza (3 weeks straight!)
