Blog 27, what’s in your closet, 30 day blog challenge.
I have two, I have a traditional oak wardrobe that we bought with the house and a rail in my room that I abuse with far too many clothes.
Last year I Marie Kondo my wardrobe. I read her book and couldn’t wait to get back home so I could start sorting through everything. I got my bin liners and charity bags ready for a good old sort through.
I dragged everything down stairs and began sorting through. I found it fairly easy except when it came to gym clothes and work clothes.
Paint stained clothes
I teach kids art which means my work wardrobe gets flicked with acrylic paint and my shirts get stained with ink. So even though I love some of my work clothes they don’t necessarily spark joy.
Reading further I understood that if it’s practical and used I am allowed to keep them.
I donated sentimental stuff, expensive cashmere jumpers that were far too small for me, chucked silk Jigsaw shirts that had holes in them. I also boxed a few items of beautiful clothes that I will never wear but my niece may like them when she is older.
We have a large wardrobe in our bedroom that even when it is empty is far to heavy for me to move. Trust me I tried. They don’t make wardrobes like they used too! Gav Has most of his clothes and suits in there.
We have two draws under the bed, one for sports, snow boarding and gym gear and the other is for holiday items such as swimsuits and coverups etc.
We still have too many clothes and Gav is a bigger hoarder than I am!
I won’t be showing you my actual wardrobe that will be in another blog but you get the gist.
I love print and pattern all year round! Tomorrow I am having a bit of a clear out.
This blog has inspired me to sort it again. Put away some winter pieces and arrange it a wee bit better.
