Sometimes, when I feel like I have nothing to wear, it’s actually because I have too much to wear. You know the feeling? As the seasons pass, our closets get cluttered with items we really don’t even reach for anymore. When I start to feel this way, I know it’s time for a refresh.
First things first: I pull out everything. I dig through every section, from outerwear to activewear, and do a quick edit. If I haven’t touched it since last year, don’t love how it feels on my body these days, or just know I won’t need it again in the future, I say goodbye.
Just the simple process of editing my closet like this makes me feel instantly better! But once I put the pieces I’m keeping back in their proper place, I can do a mini inventory. Here’s what I ask:
- What’s missing from my wardrobe? Aka, basics and staples, or more color? Etc.
- What favorite items need replacing after everyday wear and tear?
- What do I feel amaaaazing in, and does it come in another color?
- What do I reach for the most?
- What colors do I want to wear more of in the season ahead?
What we put on our bodies affects us more than we realize. When we feel good, pulled-together and confident, our days are different! We have more energy. More fun. And the ability to create how we want to FEEL in our days.
Try it out for yourself. Play a little. Have some fun.
When the seasons shift, it’s a natural time for a reset (and you can totally do this in your pantry or garage or office, too). Take stock of what you have, what you love, and what you no longer need. Then, you can replenish your spaces with purchases that are meaningful and enjoyable to you! In my life, I’ve found this is a better way to shop.
You all know I’m not a big shopper, but looking into my own closet made me realize I do need to upgrade or replace a few things in my wardrobe this month. I’ve done a lot of digging to find some new favorites– so of course, I want to share them with you!
Check out my favorite Winter-into-Spring picks below (including some new favs in my amazon shop below too!). What’s your favorite one, or the thing you’re on the lookout for?
