The new year is a beautiful time to reflect on the past year & look forward to new goals. One of those for you might be purging your closet and starting fresh! I know it seems scary, but cleaning out your closet doesn’t have to be a long, hard thing. We will walk you through 5 EASY steps you can do to purge your closet, get a clearer picture as to what you REALLY need!
Feeling overwhelmed by your closet? We are here to help you start and finish this project like a pro.
1. Get rid of anything that doesn’t spark joy.
As Mari Kondo says, if it doesn’t spark joy get rid of it! No need to hold onto something that doesn't make you feel comfortable & confident. Every item in your closet should be something you LOVE and are excited to put on in the morning! Anything less is not worth keeping. If you don't feel good in your clothes.. you will never wear it!
Pro Tip: Try-On EVERYTHING in your closet and ask yourself the question, do you LOVE how you feel when you put it on? When was the last time you wore this piece? 2, maybe 3 YEARS ago?! If either of these are the case, get rid of it.
2. Reassess Your Life
If you are a mom on the go who's always running around and bending over, your wardrobe should look different from the gal who works a 9-5 in a corporate job. The same goes for weather! The gal who lives in the mid-west or east coast will have a different wardrobe than the SoCal gal who never sees the temperature drop below 60 degrees! Whatever your lifestyle looks like, the majority of your wardrobe should reflect that!
3. Get Back to Basics
Okay... so you have a closet of clothes you love, but you STILL feel like you don't know how to mix & match those pieces? It might be because you need to go BACK to BASICS! Try a simple white tee, like Cj's Favorite Boyfriend Tee. It's comfy, roomy, and good for maternity, nursing, & postpartum. On top of this, a classic layering piece like the Cj's Favorite Ribbed Long Sleeve is crucial. This will be your base as you build outfits.
