I feel like I have been pretty non-existent for a while, so I’m really excited for my first proper post about fashion and style for about 6 months. Here goes…
I am now on a study break after my first big exam for a qualification I’m working towards and the first thing I wanted to do was go through my wardrobe and throw out all the items I no longer identify with.
I have found recently that the amount of stuff that I have makes me forget how I like to dress and the style I’m looking for when I go to select clothing for the day. So having a good sort out is something I felt would help with this problem.
I was quite harsh on myself and got rid of anything I hadn’t worn for a year (this was quite a lot of stuff). So this is what I am left with…
I have all my jersey tops, sportswear and jumpers in drawers so this is not the only clothing I have. But I now feel that everything left is an item that can be blended well with the rest of my wardrobe.
I have also had a clear out of makeup and general dressing table items as I owned a hell of a lot of makeup for someone who wears the same 5 products every day. So now I have a super organized dressing table next to my clothes rail.
I’d recommend having a sort out if you’ve reached a point of saturation with your clothing. It seems easier to just go out and buy more things but when the new items are blended with the old coats and skirts from previous trends and styles they quickly become less inspiring. It is also clearer what you can buy to match existing pieces after you have sorted through your items. Then you are likely to get more use out of the clothes you buy.
I’m going away next weekend and having a big sort out has helped me think about what I want to take with me so all in all, I’m feeling good about my wardrobe!
