Yes, I realize it’s January 14th, and that the new year started two weeks ago, but it’s taken me a while to get myself together. The boys were out of school until January 7, which felt like 100 years (of joyous family time, of course!) and I spent all last week trying to get my house clean and my to-do list under control.

A couple of weeks ago, the always-inspiring Maggie Mason emailed to ask if I would like to do a Mighty Closet post. And of course I said yes, because yay! SO fun.
Although shooting 382 photos may have left me feeling a little crazed. GO FIGURE.
Someone needs to cut back on the coffee, clearly. Whoa.
My instructions were to shoot five outfits, including one for cocktails. I shot more than that, although I cannot remember now how many there were. 10? 50? 200??? I have no idea. It was crazy. And there were a lot of outtakes. Let’s take a look a a few of them, shall we?
