Wardrobe Changes

Last week I donated four blue Ikea bags full of plus sized clothing.  Basically, an entire size 24 wardrobe left my home in body bags. I have 42 free hangers in my closet.  It feels so strange to purge a collection of clothing that I spent over a decade amassing. The only thing I kept was a pair of blue jeans - a reminder of of my former self.  I'm happily down to a size 16 now.  I know that seems large for some people, but at six feet tall, it looks just right on me.

But back to this empty closet. I'm not in a financial position to run out and fill it up or anything, but I've been scheming and collecting data. My lifestyle has changed a lot in the last 10 years and my old wardrobe, while lovely, was a little out of sync with my current aesthetic. So I look at this as the perfect opportunity to re-tool my look.  Pinterest is a big help.  As I look over my fashion pin-board, I notice that my style is kind of "Annie Hall" meets casual Jane Austin.  Good to know as I'm hunting down new pieces for my wardrobe.
