I need to start this off by saying that I am aggressively trying to save my money. I have a full-time job in retail and it is not at all high-paying. HOWEVER, I am learning a lot and there’s a lot to be said for that. Money aside.
But, this is a post about buying things which obviously takes money-making into account. So, let’s talk.
I hate my wardrobe right now. It makes me unhappy. This is so materialistic of me to say, I guess. But, it’s the truth. When you don’t want to put on anything in your closet, how are you starting your day? Not well. Ha. Sad, but true. So, I started slow and began to purge things out of my closet. I love purging! It’s so freeing. This started making me think that I actually do enjoy a minimalistic lifestyle. Not being encumbered by tons of thiiiiings you forget you have or push to the back of your closet is so nice. I want to be surrounded by things that I l o v e.
Time to re-build my wardrobe, you guys. I threw out, donated, and sold clothes and now I’m at square one. Kind of. I mean I’d still like to get rid of things but then I’d be left with like three outfits tops. So, we’re holding off for now.
I made a pinterest board. It’s locked and only I can see it (not much to see yet), so I can scheme my way into a closet that I’m obsessed with. I’m a very visual person, so this helps me see what I’m buying all together and helps me plan outfits accordingly. I am starting with basics (i.e. jeans) and am going to go from there! On the horizon: bras, a pair of boots, some birks, and some basic tees.
It’ll be a process for sure. I am not made of money. I’m trying to avoid instant gratification shopping, which is so so hard. But I hope it’ll help me build a minimalist closet & lifestyle that I’m happy with.
