It's September. There is a chill in the air. It makes me think of sweaters.
I just walked with a friend and she mentioned an article she saw in the
Wall Street Journal. "The Closet to Envy Is Half Full" by Elizabeth Holmes.
I returned home with the paper in hand.
This article speaks very clearly to something I have been feeling for a long time...we have too much stuff! Specifically, in our closets. Less really can be more. There is an ease to dressing when your wardrobe is well curated. When everything in it fits your body and your life...and you love it.
Statistics show that women wear 20% of their clothing 80% of the time. Think about it...don't we all reach for the the same few pieces every day? That means a lot of clothing is just left hanging...literally.
Why not get rid of the 'clutter' and keep only what we love to wear?
What if we became more selective and discerning when we shopped? Purchasing only items that are great additions, not impulse buys. Items that we will actually wear with what we already own. It requires a shift in thinking, but it is well worth it in the end.
Having fewer pieces in our closet simplifies the process of getting dressed. A more streamlined, minimal approach to our wardrobe helps to take the guess work out.
We know what we have and we know it all works. Getting dressed is effortless and we always look terrific!
