Too Many Clothes
Monday, August 27, 2018
Yesterday I began the process of clearing my closet of summer whites and pastels.
And summer white shoes.
Anything I had not worn this summer? Went into bags for the thrift store.
Anything I had not worn with pleasure this summer? Including anything that pinched at the waist or just felt too loose or to tight anywhere on my body. And including some leather jackets that I just really didn't like. Went into bags for the thrift store.
Three large bags, stuffed.
Including shoes I had NEVER worn at all. Because I "thought" they were comfortable at the store: but they were not (particularly after last summer's broken foot . . . ).
OK then. My closet has "fall cottons" (darker, less filmy, heavier weight) and fall shoes neatly arranged.
And I've been thinking about how I've overindulged in clothing. In part because it's helped me maintain. But also in part because: truly, I never had remotely enough clothing as a child, and I've been "over compensating".
My closet has been bloated to the point of obesity. And there's still more work to be done!
