It’s the time of year that I’m once again pulling pieces out of the closet, updating with newer pieces (like this headband trend I’m obsessing over), and gently letting go of older things. The Summer season is creeping in. City dwellers are trading Manhattan for poolside sunsets in the Hamptons or whisking away to Ibiza.
When I reflect on my wardrobe and my annual cleaning; I am newly inspired by old pieces and simultaneously hitting myself for spending so much on one of a kind pieces that never made it out of the closet. Enviously I browse manicured Pinterest boards for the latest in summer-wear.
Personal style is a life long evolution.
I’m trying to keep that in mind.
And you? How are you beginning to feel about those t-shirts piled in the closet kept in case “someday” you may wear them, use them, or donate them.
Can you say that you’ve had the same style for years successfully? If so, I’ll need you to call me immediately and let me in on the secret.
My wallet will thank you.
Personally, I’m experiencing a rebirth of minimalism in my wardrobe after ages of loud colors and patterns.
