It’s still difficult to tell whether or not Spring has actually sprung, what with all these surprise snowfalls we’ve been getting over the last few weeks. I mean come onnnnn Mother Nature, give it a break already!
But with the slowww transition to Spring, comes the need to purge and clean up the home, and in turn the closet. I often find it difficult to let go of old, out of date clothes, especially when they’re garments that fit. Sure I may not have worn them for years, but what if I get rid of them and later have a need for that exact item? Where else will I find something like it that’s going to fit me should I ever need it again?! Is it completely ridiculous to hold on to these pieces for that rare just-in-case scenario?
I have two pairs of pants in particular that I just can’t seem to let go of. I bought them while I was in university (probably nine or ten years ago) at a store called Off The Wall, a store that occasionally carried longer denim lengths. These pants are both somewhat retro looking slacks (one tweed, the other plaid… lol I know… ), and and if I’m being honest, have worn them MAYBE a handful of times. Even so, I can’t justify parting with them, so I decided to style a pair with this cold crossover winter/spring outfit.
Waking up to snow this morning, this sweater is exactly what I want to cuddle up in all day. It’s adorably stylish and would look cute over some lingerie around the house, or thrown over an outfit to run some errands.
Does anyone else hoard clothes like I do?? How do you renew old garments to make them new again?…. Or is it time to just let go?
