I really love this skirt. But I never wear it.
Inspired by Recovering Shopaholic’s recent post where she carefully documented every outfit she wore, paying particular attention to why she liked, or didn’t like it, I’m trying to make myself wear the things I don’t normally wear to determine if I need to keep them.
We’ve been through this before. It’s okay to have things around that I don’t wear as frequently as I’d like to, and I’ve set another weight loss goal for myself, so I’m not going to get rid of anything until I reach that, and determine if things I don’t wear very often now fit me better then. BUT. I just don’t like having things around that I don’t wear. It suffocates me. I want to have less. I’m tired of being overwhelmed by all the things I own that don’t get worn.
I was going to try to photograph every single outfit I REALLY wear and take notes on them, with the goal of taking a hard, realistic look at my wardrobe, but already that seems quite ambitious. Maybe I’ll start Monday…
I’m quite enjoying reading Be More With Less and Recovering Shopaholic on my journey towards minimalism; I’ve found that their ideas are inspirational. My resolve to have a (way) more minimal wardrobe doesn’t stop me from having a panic attack whenever I think about getting rid of beloved items (that I don’t wear) though. What can ease me through that?
