Loving My Closet Again

Happy New Years!  I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas, and Santa brought you everything you wanted under your tree.  Hubby was very good to me this year, and spoiled me beyond what I deserved.  As I was putting away all of my lovely items I yet again came to the conclusion that I have too many clothes.  My closet is bursting at the seams and I cannot seem to fit anything else.  Every time I do a closet clean out or switch for the seasons I tell myself I am going to do better with my shopping.  I do really well for the first month or so, and then I fall of the bandwagon.

I’ve decided to try something new this year and to Love My Closet Again.  I want to get my closet down to the pieces that I absolutely love and cannot live without.  I decided that I am going to choose 10 items that I will wear over the next month.  If I don’t wear the item or don’t love it when I wear it I am going to let it go.  Kinda like the HGTV show Love it or List it, but with clothes.  I will decided if I love the item or if it goes.

If I decide that I love all ten items for that month then I am not allowed to shop.  If I decide that I don’t love an item and let it go, then I can shop that next month.  The caveat though is that I can only purchase the number of items that I get rid of.  I am hoping this helps curb my shopping since I feel it has gotten a bit out of control.  Just because I get rid of items though doesn’t mean I am going to run out and buy something new.  I am going to try to limit my shopping to pieces that are a must and will help enhance my closet.

In choosing the ten pieces I went with different types of clothing.  I decided to go with four sweaters since it was winter, a top, two dresses, one tunic, and two skirts. All of these items I got last year, and have only worn once.  I wanted to decide if they deserved a permanent spot in my closet.

I would love if you all joined in with me to start loving your closet again!  Share on IGusing #lovingmyclosetagain or share on my Facebook page what items you are working with this month.  I would also love to see how you style pieces so make sure to use the tag above or again share on my Facebook page.  Hopefully together we will start to love our closets again!  What are your ten pieces for the month of January?
