Hi everyone! ! I hope you had a great end of 2015 and an amazing start of 2016. So I’m gonna start by apologizing for taking so long on posting, I have been very busy, sometimes lazy, etc, so I just decided today without thinking it too much to write, while my kids are working on teaching each other, momma writes. So here is part of what it supposed to be publish months ago.
You might be wondering why the tittle of this blog, and there is a reason why one good day I decided to just simply throw away my closet. Well a little bit ago a good friend of mine posted about this topic from a blog post, I read it, though about it, and it just clicked. I have to say that I didn’t throw away my clothes like a crazy person, no, what I did was what the blogger recommend it, go thru your closet and pick outfits that are confortable, easy to put together and look good, so based on those guidelines I went in my quest. The reason I called it a quest is because when I looked at my closet it was full of stuff I have not wear in years, I had clothes from when I got married!! That is insane!! So when I saw that I said:”Oh no, this stops today!!”
Please allow me to tell you a little bit about myself, I’ve been married for almost 7 years, I was thin, about a size 6 to 8, the reason why I’m sharing this is because I found clothes that size on my closet, so that says a lot, that means that for all those years I’ve been collecting, hoarding(at some point), all of that, and it was not figuratively it was literally, I had that much stuff stored. So the day I took all of those clothes I felt good, I felt new, free, in a way that I have never experienced before. I saw clothes I thought I didn’t have anymore, so I picked my clothes based on this criteria:
I have no background on fashion, I’m just a fashion afficionado, and the techniques that I used was the ones that work for me. Feel free to take them as your own if you think it suits you.
I kept about 6 to 9 pairs of jeans, 2 colored, 5 long, 2 shorts (for summer), some so must of my jeans varies from light to dark denim
2. Flexibility and confort
In this category I put together shirts, dresses, shoes, jewelry. I kept it simple but elegant, I have shirts for summer, fall and winter, summer dresses, shoes for those stations of the year and jewelry that can be both simple but also bold.
So after alllllllll of this I have aproximately 10 to 20 outfits to choose from (that means top to bottom, jewelry, 2 piece clothing and shoes), and it is amazing! ! But you might be wondering:” but by you having a blog about deals, clothing, etc, isn’t it a temptation for you to go buy more?!” Well my friends I have a very good answer for that :” NO! !” Because I just simply don’t need to, once you see, live, and embrace the new you, you will see it and you won’t give in to temptation, I have prove it myself, but that’s another post.
Here is a pic of what I’m talking about.
I just have to say that I feel really good, and that also hope that this had help you to understand that sometimes you don’t have to go far to feel good, renewed and refreshed, sometimes all you have to do it look in your closet and let go to things from the past so you can move forward.
