Spring Cleaning: Your Closet

by June.

Over the last few days I’ve become quite troubled by the amount of stuff that I’ve collected in my closet in the past few years. Like everyone else, I love a good sale – I love to catch a great give-away – and I usually end up keeping a bunch of stuff I find myself wearing maybe once or twice.

I genuinely admire people that are able to name every single item in their closet (accessories + shoes included!) and make a million outfits by putting every single piece to good use.

I love the idea of having Carrie Bradshaw’s closet, (I envy those celebs with their ooo so nice closet that are colour coordinated and shoes lookin’ all pretty) but I think I’d love the idea more if I knew what I would be wearing every morning without spending 15 minutes of frustration trying on every piece of clothing I own.

This really should have been part of my new year’s resolution – but it’s better late than never right?

This weekend’s project: DE-CLUTTER my closet.

Seriously! Colour coordinating it and everything. I want to get rid of all the things that I don’t absolutely adore, love, and wear (i.e. I haven’t touched it in the past year).
Now, there are always a few items that I hold close and dear to my heart because they hold some kind of sentimental value – but I don’t wear them, ever. I’m planning on keeping a small section of my closet (or a box) just for that purpose. I know I have a few pieces that I’ve purchased while I was on vacation in the past, and no matter how I don’t like them anymore, I can’t bring myself to toss them out because I can remember the feeling I had when I first purchased them: joy. They just bring great memories back to the present.

I’d like to challenge you all to do the same. De-clutter your closets, accessories, shoes and keep what you really love.

 

Each item should serve a true purpose. 

Love, June
