What's in your closet?

Friday, July 24, 2015

  I started my love affair with clothes very young. I was that girly girl that would only wear dresses and skirts. I grew up in a small village in Saskatchewan, Canada and the winters were the most bitter cold you ever felt. I didn't care how often I was told to put pants on I was going to wear a dress and tights. Back then those awful tight ski-pants were my enemy, shoving my dress into the legs having it all bunched up in my crotch! But I was happy because I knew I had a dress on under the ugly snowsuit that was required. I felt like a princess ready to twirl. Clothing does something to how we feel about our image and how we express ourselves.
  Over the years I have changed how I shop and dress and what I keep in my closet. I do wear pants these days although limited. I am becoming more classic as time goes on. I buy better quality pieces that fit well and hold up after washing since dry clean only is out of the question with kids! My closet is filled to the brim but it has nothing I do not fit or wear in it. A long time ago I read that de-cluttering reduces stress. I actually believe this to be true. If you wear something that is a little tight, or have an old garment hanging from your skinny days it brings your mood down. You question yourself why aren't you that size again? Which leads to the "tomorrow I need to start dieting!" And so the cycle continues every day, every time you pick something to wear. Whether you have 20 items in your closet or 200 make sure those pieces make you happy. Clothing is about feeling good about yourself and an expression to who you are.
