Since writing this post about editing down my closet a few weeks back, the lovely ladies over at Cuyana asked me to write about my own personal journey for their Lean Closet Series. This is the last week of their series, so as a summary / wrap up, they’ve pulled in myself and Madelynn Hackwith ( who I totally admire in her own Wardrobe Series + overall style ) to share our wardrobe stories of what lead us to fewer, better things.
But here’s the thing : I’ve never really considered myself a style maven of any sort. Developing my wardrobe and putting together outfits has always been a challenge for me, but when I stepped into my closet last month to purge 2/3 of what I owned, I made a promise to myself that it was time to get confident and invest in pieces that I would 100% love and feel good in. No more wishy washy “okay I’ll wear that” stuff. Seriously, though, confidence can make any old day that much better. Even if like me, you’re just working in your home office and nobody notices. With that said, I was honored to share my own true story, struggles, and goals for the future when it comes to my own wardrobe. As much as I’ve pushed it aside in the past, it’s quickly becoming a fun new venture that I’m excited to experiment with going forward.
