Thoughtful Closet: 30 items for Three Winter Months

A post by Indiana . . . 

I wrote late last night about my Thoughtful Closet experiment, so without further ado, here are the 30 items I've been wearing for the last 30 days. I still need to procure a white t-shirt, maxi skirt, coated leggings, and black loafers (those are the holes I've noticed in this first month), but I plan to get those this week. One month down, two to go! But who knows? Maybe I'll do this through January, too.
