Paring Down

I was doing a little browsing on my favorite clothing websites. It is what I do when I'm bored. Most of these have wishlists on the page and I just fill em' up. Some I will eventually buy and some I won't.

I actually don't need to buy anything but that is my thing. I like clothes. I am clothes horse.

It dawned me that I actually have way more clothes than I need. Some still have tags on them. Some of been hanging around for awhile. Kind of sad life these clothes are living. Dontcha, think? Beautiful clothes that need to be worn but they aren't.

I think I have decided that for the next 30 I am going to embark a little project. I'm going to attempt to wear a new outfit every day. No repeats. I think this will help show me what I skip over and possibly what I need to sell/give away.

A few exceptions will be made.

1. Jeans/pants - I don't have 30 days worth of pants. I will have to repeat these.
2. Off season clothing - I can't obviously wear my sweaters and jackets in 80 degree weather.
3. If I wear something that can be used for a totally new look. Just as long as it isn't the same outfit.

This should be interesting. I think it is going to be hard not to reach for my favorites. Maybe I will find new ways to wear them. Maybe I will rediscover some long lost pieces.

We will see.


  1. There's a blog where the blogger is proud of the fact that she only owns something like 10 (maybe less) articles of clothing to wear. But I know I love it when I buy something new to wear. It makes me feel special :)

    1. I definitely couldn't do 10 articles of clothing! Yikes!
