It’s spring. I love it. I love the sun, the warmth, the fact that my skin is no longer pasty. What I don’t love: ALL of my clothes. They aren’t awful + maybe there are a few pieces I like, but I’m bored.
I’ve never considered myself a trendsetter — I don’t have a big enough bankroll to shop that much — but I’ve never just detested everything in my closet before. Perhaps having met several fashion bloggers lately, I’ve realized how lacking my wardrobe really is. Maybe a career shift is to blame. Whatever the reason, it’s not necessarily a bad thing. The only bad thing is that I don’t have disposable income to treat myself to a shopping spree. (NOW would be the ideal time for Clinton Kelly + Stacy London to run up my stairs and start destroying my closet.)
Well, that’s not gonna happen. But something’s gotta…
I was driving downtown yesterday when the idea to go shopping struck me + I merged lanes towards one of my go-to little shops. And then “NO!” the smart side of my brain shouted. I listened. I have too many clothes. I need to at least get rid of them before bringing home more.
Smart brain chimed in again suggesting I turn this predicament into a challenge. Yes, it’s already a challenge — getting dressed each day — but I mean a let’s-find-some-goodness-in-that-heap-to-keep challenge. The thought of beginning some sort of outfit/jewelry combo series was already on my list to do, but it’s seriously go time now.
I don’t know how I’ll structure my challenge just yet (ideas are welcome), but basically my goal is to mix this and that to create outfits I want to wear or repurpose pieces that should no longer be worn in public.
Do any of you gals go through this closet love/hate scenario or am I losing my mind?! (Help.)
