On my to-do list this week: cleaning out my closet and ridding it of some stuff I’ve had for a few years and haven’t worn in a while. You’d think getting more clothes would make it easier to find something to wear, but I think it makes it harder. When my closet is stuffed to the brim I just feel overwhelmed. It’s hard to see past the things I no longer wear to see the things I really love. Now I’m not one to get rid of things just because they’re no longer in style, but sometimes my personal style changes to the point that I’m no longer excited to wear certain pieces. And if those pieces are still in good shape, I can take them to a consignment store or thrift store, where someone can give them the appreciation they deserve.
The reason for my little speech: I know a lot of people have trouble letting go of things, so consider this your own personal nudge – courtesy of your friend Sarah.
One thing I’ve had for a few years but I’m not getting rid of is this dress. It’s not really anything special, but I still bust it out it once or twice a summer when I can’t decide what else to wear, and I’m always pleasantly surprised. It seriously feels like wearing a nightgown, which reminds me of sleeping. And sleeping is one of my top 3 favorite things – after eating dessert and watching Parks and Recreation.
