What you can't see is that this skirt has tiny multicolored pin stripes in it and the tank has a lace front sewn on....one of my favorites! I threw the vest on at the last minute and it added just the right amount of "something" to complete the look!
Do you love what you wore yesterday?
Or was it just "okay"?
Wouldn't it be great to get dressed everyday and just LOVE what you're wearing and feel great in it?
You know how that can happen? Here's the trick right here. It's taken me a while to get this, but now that I have, I'm a convert! So here it is...I'm going to speak up so you can hear me.....
ONLY KEEP CLOTHES YOU LOVE!!!!
Sounds simple right? Go take a look in your closet. Go item by item and ask yourself, "Do I love this?" You'll be surprised. I promise you, there's a lot of clothes in there that you keep because you think you can use it. You purchased it because you wanted something different, feeling kind of bored with your wardrobe. Or maybe you saw another blogger wear something similar and you loved it on them; but just haven't made it work on you. But you kept it anyway. Buyer's remorse kicking in and then you're feeling like you HAVE to keep it. Did someone give you something that is really not you, but you feel guilty re-gifting or donating it?
All these scenarios lead to having a closet full of acquaintances rather than true friends. It's quality that we're after. Authenticity. A closet full of items that get you excited and inspired!!! I mentioned in the previous post that I did a closet purge. I was shocked that I had 2 big trash bags of things that I didn't love! I swallowed hard, forgot about what I spent on it and piled unloved items in the bags and took them toot sweet to donate. Now, I look up in my closet and see items that I just ADORE which will lead to outfits I just ADORE!
I'm telling you, free yourself from the so so. And then don't look back! You'll have even MORE clothes and outfits to wear than ever before and a renewed love of the daily dress up!
How long has it been since you purged?
