In the last few months, I’ve developed a (healthy) habit of purging old clothes and shoes and slowly rebuilding my wardrobe. After coming out of the mom fog of raising two littles, I realized that I’d been holding onto clothes from our dating years! (We’ve been together 10 years this summer).
Quality and classic pieces aside, I decided to start donating items that have been taking up space in my closet. Those pieces that we all tell ourselves to hold onto “just in case,” inevitably faced my “keep it or lose it” judgment party a la Carrie Bradshaw. I’ve held strong and donated many a bags full of clothes to our local Salvation Army.
I’m determined to invest in myself a little bit and catch up to the styles of the modern mom. But, instead of buying a bunch of new things, I’m trying to be mindful and intentional about my purchases. D appreciates that I’m not binge shopping every few days and I’m happy with the items I’ve chosen thus far. So from time to time, I’ll try to update here on my latest fashion finds.
Some happy mail from a recent purchase arrived earlier this week. So here’s my inaugural project rebuild my wardrobe post:
I bought the tee in pretty much every available color based on some reviews from friends. And I’m sold! While they don’t cover my butt entirely like a tunic tee, the cotton is lightweight and soft, perfect for every day wear. I needed basic tees in basic colors, what better way to (re)build my wardrobe, right? I think these will definitely be a staple item in my closet.
What are some of your basics? Any suggestions on what to add next as I rebuild my wardrobe? Have you done a closet rehaul before? Any tips for a newbie?
