I know I know... bad Branflake.
I have a lot of clothes. Three closets full of clothes to be exact. Despite this, I have a goal to only have two suitcases for my clothes when I move to Virginia. I know. I'm cray cray. But I also want a wardrobe overhaul and I don't want to be weighed down by needless baggage full of old clothes I don't wear anymore.
As my good friend, Caitlin, pointed out, this move across country gives me an opportunity to have a do-over, start anew, and dress how I want to dress. I love that thought because I feel like I have things just to have them and I can't wait to live well but with less.
Therefore, the clothes I'm taking with me must fit this criteria:
~It has to make me smile instantly when I try it on.
~It must be something I would wear on vacation where lots of pictures would be taken.
~If I ever happen to run into Jude Law, I'd be happy I was wearing it.
I want to be kidding about the last bit, but when I saw Jude Law in Scotland, I got really self-conscious when I realized how unstylish I was compared to the other fab British ladies in Edinburgh (because, you know, Jude Law cares so much about what I wear). I know it sounds silly, but if it's not good enough for a random celebrity sighting, then why have it?
Basically, this is just me trying to live on less, but to the extreme. Watch out, Goodwill... you're getting a fattie drop off in the next few days!
Have you ever done a wardrobe overhaul?
Any advice for me or others wanting to do the same?
