I tried to sort through some of my clothes. Having recently sold a bunch on eBay and donated two baskets full I thought this would be a simple thing. It turns out. I still have a lot of clothes. But not many. It’s the weirdest thing. I was sorting through the clothes thinking skirt, skirt, skirt, top, skirt, skirt, skirt. Hmmmm, why don’t I own a puffy skirts? Or a skater skirt? All my skirts are very straight in their cut. I should branch out in the skirt department. So I add pouffy skirt to the list.
Then I try to find my one pair of black pants and can’t find them. And I wonder why I don’t own any slim fit cropped pants. Or some wide leg pants that aren’t huge on me. I need more black pants, I think. Clearly black pants are missing and I wear them for work so it’s a work thing. No problem. I’ll add pants to the list of items I need to add to the wardrobe.
Then I flick through the t-shirts, unable to throw them away even though I hardly ever wear them. Some of them. But Summer is coming up, I say, I’ll need t-shirts. You always wear more tee’s in Summer… Right? So I fold them up and pack them away again. Smiling at the ranges of colours and styles. Wondering why the heck I have 6 black t-shirts and no yellow ones. So I add yellow shirt to the list of things I want for my wardrobe.
Then I realised if I keep this up, I’m going to be buried under clothes. Skirts mostly.
So maybe I shouldn’t clean out my wardrobe. Right?
