What’s In Your Wardrobe?
Let me start this post by saying that I am no fashionista! If you’ve met me in person, it will be blindingly obvious that I don’t care about fashion trends and the like. I buy what I like and think suits me, when I can afford it.
Over the years I’ve increasingly adhered to the saying “You get what you pay for” and have opted for fewer, better quality items over lots of cheap stuff. After Bliss was born I really decided that I needed to live in the moment and stop waiting for the time I would able to wear x, y or z. I decided I could be a Mum, not be a size 10 and still look stylish and I started to buy clothes that I loved, regardless of whether they were on the front page of a Country Road catalogue. Now, I still would never describe myself as stylish (nor would anyone else) but I no longer care because I feel happy with my clothes and I have picked up several pieces that I really love…
BUT I also hate to throw things out and so can find myself with a wardrobe stuffed full of goodness knows what, feeling like I have absolutely-nothing-to-wear.
On Saturday I culled. Hard. Two garbage bags full of clothes that I either don’t like anymore or that I like but never wear. Gone. And a drawer now full of maternity clothes that have been put away and will not be worn again until there’s a baby in my belly!
I was left with this…
Yesterday I got up and got dressed without giving it a seconds thought. This morning it was the same – I didn’t even register until I was already dressed that I was heading to a Fashion Trade Show this morning. No panicking – no freaking out about my hair (post on that coming too!); just dressed and ready to go.
Loving my new wardrobe, even if it’s mostly full of old clothes.
What’s in yours?
