I thought I saw this challenge a few days ago. I had a little trouble re-finding the specific post a couple of days later but the concept stuck with me. I went through my closet and found a few items. As you can see, the post is right where it should be. Click the picture to get there.
I have worked at keeping my closet under control. I am not the best dresser and I struggle with what goes with what. I love color so I am at great risk for wearing too many pieces, with too much color, all at one time.
The simplest way I found to combat this issue is to have a small collection of clothes. Aside from a half dozen folded sweaters, some long and short sleeve knit shirts (mostly for work) and my underwear, these pictures are all the clothes I own. It’s possible there would be more if some of my clothes were not in my daughter’s closet.
While I’m excited to move unwanted clothes out, the challenge is to give a few pieces a second chance and decide if I “love it,” or will I “lose it.” This is my first item. My daughter has wanted me to get rid of this almost since I brought it home. I got it because it is long and I need long skirts in the winter. I love the plaid print. Daughter says the print, and the length, make me look old. Definitely something I am going to avoid as much as possible. My goal is not to dress like my daughter. I need an appropriate style. Let’s see if this skirt is worthy of residing in my closet. Now if only I could find a good pair of boots to go with it.
