Mama in the Closet


I spent most of the day yesterday in my closet.  Cleaning and switching my winter clothes for my summer clothes.  I am very lucky to have a spare closet in our guest room where I can put my off-season togs.  In addition to the old switch-a-roo, I got rid of things that I have not worn, or things I did but, honestly, should not have worn in the last 6 months...


If anybody out there has a size 10 shoe and sees anything they want, let me know...
Those cow print clogs (third from the left) are among my favorites, but I tend to sound like a cow when I am sporting them.  

And since I am now the size of a cow, I do not need to sound like one too.

My closet hasn't looked this good in quite a while.
It's really too bad that most of my warm weather clothes are too small for my present size, but I am working on that.  At least my shoe size has always remained the same.  Did I mention I'm a size 10?
I prefer summer shoes to winter shoes hands down.
I also like to strap festive colors onto my size 10 feet.
Except for these dark puppies.
I like these.
These are my motorcycle boots. Size 10.
Sometimes Squazz takes me out for a nice Sunday ride.
I like to go when the ambient temperature is between 74.5 and 77 degrees.
I am not kidding; you should ask Squazz.
As a result, I don't get asked very often.
But I really don't like being either too cold or too hot.
Kinda like a big-footed Goldilocks.

I'm so going to clear out my closet. So much stuff I just don't wear.

And I think that 74.5 and 77 degrees IS the perfect weather!! And sunny.

Darlin' ....you are a woman after my own heart...I LOVE summer shoes! Great minds think alike, my closet is a wreck right now where I have just started the great "cleaning" myself...all my winter clothes go in our spare bedroom closet also!

I still need to do this, but sadly, the closet in our spare bedroom is stuffed with hubby's stuff! He is a pack rat!

My closet has all winter clothes still and I'm sure it was at least 80 degrees last week. In a frenzy, last fall I threw away all my yucky don't fit summer clothes, so now I literally have nothing to wear.

Mason's funeral is tomorrow and there is NOTHING in there appropriate. I need to do closet cleaning too...ugh. I'm glad you got this over with! Good girl, I'm proud of you!!! YIPPEE!

You are an inspiration...time to clean..

Christine said...

Wow! You have alot of shoes!

I have a total of 3 pairs. Mostly because my feet won't stay the same size. Each pregnancy they grow! Too many kids and I'll have clown feet! I do need to purge my shoes that don't fit anymore.

My closet is a disaster. And I need more summer shoes... I just learned that our dress code prohibits flip flop like sandels. I had sequins and kitten heels...

Plus the old goat threw our new tent in there along with other stuff... seriously a disaster!

If I were a size 10 I would bid on the cow shoes. I just did that tonite with my closet. I will never wear all of my shoes, but I like having the choices.

Look how neat your shoes are, all in a row, waiting for the perfect weather to make an appearance! And, might I say, some pretty fierce looking ballet flats there, missy!

Shoe Goddesses Unite!

Laura Peach-- I will send you the cow clogs! Just email me your address!

Baroness: I love my flats! My big-girl shoes are another story...

Egghead said...

I love that you have motorcycle momma boots as well as those cow slippers. ha! Ha! I went through the wild craze of cleaning closets a couple of months ago. I still don't know what got into me.

Do you hire out??? I'm closet cleaning challenged because I can't seem to throw away near as much as I need to.

Furthermore, it's been in the 90's here for a month and I still haven't changed over my clothes & shoes. But, I have a new theory. If I just go get things I want or need as I go, then eventually I'll be able to throw away what's left in the other closets, lol. Well, in theory anyway.

You are so cute. And you have great taste in shoes!

My closets -- TWO, for the entire house -- are a shambles at all times. No photos, please. I'm getting depressed just thinking about it.
