I’ve been feeling a bit grumpy recently and I’ve been trying to work out what it is that is making me feel like a misery guts. It was only when we went to Mr G’s Christmas party and I had to panic buy an outfit, that it occurred to me for the last few weeks I’ve been surviving in an uninspiring wardrobe of jeans and over sized jumpers with the occasional addition of a scarf..a big scarf which I’ve owned since 1997. Let’s face it, it’s enough to make me feel – especially when combined with no make up and scraped back hair.. (I’m painting a great image of myself at the moment aren’t I?!).
I’m stuck in a fashion rut, I need to do some serious wardrobe sorting and rid myself of the pieces which don’t make me feel a million dollars, so I can smile at the person staring back at me in the mirror. I’ve always lived by the Audrey Hepburn quote:
The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides..
But… I’ve begun to realise my clothes do affect my mood, whether they should – they probably shouldn’t, but they do! So.. I’m challenging myself to clear out and update my wardrobe, introduce more colour and enjoy wearing my shoe collection..(disclaimer: I may need to add to my shoe collection too..sorry Mr G). Maybe it’s a New Year thing, as I’m sure I had a similar dilemma last year?
How often do you clear out your wardrobe?
