I must admit, the number of minutes I spent planning this outfit is: 0. If I don't plan my outfit the night before, I have to rush to the closet after my post-gym shower in the morning, grab, and go. I liked how it turned out though, clean lines and classic. Focusing on having a cohesive wardrobe has paid off. It's much easier and less stressful to decide on an outfit when all the items in my closet work together. I've consigned so many clothes in the last 6 months, and I still have more to unload. I just don't have time to sift through 10 blouses that I don't love to find the one that I do. I'd rather get rid of the all the so-so pieces and only leave the items I truly wear. That may mean having a smaller selection but I'm fine with that...quality is always better than quantity to me. Plus I use the money I receive from consigning to buy something that I think is awesome. Makes sense right?
Do you hold on to clothing too long? Or are you good about "out with the old, in with the new" ? Thanks for reading!
