Katie, sahm to two wild and crazy guys (8/07) and (3/10) and their sweet new baby sister (4-1-13)
I kind of do this, and I do prefer to mix and match vs buying ensembles. I have a couple sets of "bum around the house" clothes that are yoga pants and t-shirts, which double as work out clothes. I have 2 pairs of jeans, 1 pair khaki pants, 2 pairs of capris (one khaki, one denim) and a brown skirt which I pair with about 6 blouses that will match any of my bottoms. I have a dress for weddings or 'fancy' outings, a couple sweaters in basic colors, and a wool pea coat for winter. Pretty much everything can be dressed up or down with shoes, jewelry, etc. It was very freeing to let go of all the clothes that I didn't absolutely love or had fit issues with. And my side of the closet is uncluttered and very peaceful. Now if I could just get dh to get rid of at least half of his huge t-shirt collection, the closet would be perfect....
