Three clothing items I bought after I decluttered my closet

Hello! If you have been following kraft&mint, you have read that I’ve been on a decluttering mission for quite a while now.

And no, I do not have my house perfectly organized… Far from it, but I’m making progress, starting with my closet and discarding sweaters, coats, pants, etc., that I hadn’t worn in years.

After I had done a large closet redux, I realized I was missing a few clothing pieces and went on a hunt for three items in particular. First, a “neutral” color coat, a statement sweater that I could dress up or down and finally a long sweater cardigan in a neutral color. So here I am, sharing with you, my finds, which I intend to keep for years to come! The best part? I found two out of the three items on sale ;)

First piece: Neutral Color Coat

Here I am, venturing away from my “all black & gray”outfit and adding a soft pink color that I adore! I blogged about this coat a few weeks ago and found it on sale. The little bow + cream/gold buttons are my fave detail in this piece. Aside from the blush pink color ;)

Update:

Here is a fun alternative since my coat is sold out :(

Second Piece: Statement Sweater

Three clothing items I bought after I decluttered my closetI’ve seen “a floral trend” on high-end designers lines (which are waaay too far from my price range,) so when I spotted this floral sweater in black, I knew right away I would love it. It is a compliment magnet.

Third Piece: Versatile Cardigan

This sweater/cardigan is worth the price. I’ve been eyeing this piece for quite a while, and during the holiday sales, a coupon for 40% off roamed around, and I used it to buy it. I just don’t get sick of wearing it and washing it several times has not decreased the quality of this sweater one single bit.

You can wear it with as a cardigan or slouchy sweater in many different ways. And the color is the soft blush pink that I looove. I know this piece will take through Seattle’s cold spring and beyond.

Seriously, I read on some article that very smart people wear the same thing over and over again. Maybe there is something to this, and I think my new sweater would make the cut.

Oh, it is about 11:30 pm, on a “school night” and I must head to bed. But before I finish this post, I would LOVE to say that it means the world to me you are here, reading kraft&mint.
