This is my closet:
What you see is what you get. I don’t have more clothes anywhere else. I have my unmentionables and some pj pants/workout clothes in a drawer. Singular.
I might be a minimalist?
Who still owns clothes from the summer before the 9th grade.
They still fit. Not like they used to, of course. I’ve grown up and out and back in and out again and over and under and all kinds of ways. 12 years will do that to a body. Kinda like childbirth.
Any way. I, uh, need some help in this department. My favorite part of my closet (this time of year) is full of the same thing. Literally.
Hoodie sweatshirt anyone? I’m a fan of clothes that hide and cover. Always have been. Probably not going to break that habit but I could take it up a notch. Right? I could be a little more fashionable.
I have this sweatshirt from a vacation with my parents and one of my cousins – some of the best memories EVER. I just don’t want to get rid of it.
Plus, I’m wearing it here – pregnant with my oldest. I love this photo. I love that sweatshirt.
(Still have those pants, too, Ay-ay-ay!)
But I own only one pair of jeans for everyday wear that fits me. I have a back up from a few years ago and it addresses everything that was wrong with style at that time. Mom Jeans? I’m way too young for them.
I bought that belt with my own money from Express when I was in the 6th grade. People … I need an upgrade.
I have a really really really hard time getting rid of functional items. Besides, if I keep them long enough they’ll be in style again right?
I own about 4 shirts that fit me and the rest I just make do with. After losing all that weight last year I just haven’t prioritized my closet as something to be on top of. Plus, we moved and there was the conference and … well … I guess it’s time.
In a few weeks I’m headed to Pittsburgh with my step-sister to see a friend (YAY!!!!) and we’ll be shopping. I have been saving my pennies accordingly so I can actually buy some clothes with their influence and I’m pretty excited.
Only … I have no idea what to buy. HELP.
I know I need weather appropriate clothes – sweaters, even a coat. My coats don’t fit. I could use another pair of jeans, some schmazzy and sassy every day boots or shoes. The basics?? What are the basics these days? A couple tanks for layering? Some T’s?
I do not own one single button down shirt. Is that a must?
Please, advise away … I’m waiting 🙂
