For most people this could mean anything, but after last weekend I decided to try something new. I really do want to cut down and out things that are not helping me to keep balanced and happy. One of those things that has been making me unhappy is the amount of clothes I currently own. This has been a problem for several years. I’m blaming wearing a uniform for 7 years without needing to having a “work” wardrobe.
When I look into my closest, I see so much stuff, but when it comes to finding something to wear. I feel lost. I feel frustrated. I feel fat. I feel shaped wrong. I feel like a bag lady. I feel like I’m playing dress up. I don’t feel happy or balanced.
So for the next two months, I’m trying the idea of a capsule wardrobe. I separated out about 37-40 pieces of clothing not including shoes, accessories, or underwear. And moved all of my other clothes to another closest. (which all caused me to clean out my drawers.) Those pieces, I now have to put together outfits for the next two months from it. The rules are not to shop during this time. But I have a list of like two things that I’m searching for. Maybe the next round will have them.
Wish Me Luck!
