I've spent the past few weeks (or shall I say months? It's been a week here and a week there) decluttering and going through my wardrobe. There are so many things I could either sell or give away instead of keeping it stowed away in a cupboard somewhere. You should see my wardrobe, it has basically become a storage space. When I say that it was filled to the brim, I really do mean it. So week by week, day by day it has slowly started to come together. I have currently got three different bags of clothes to either sell, give away or throw head first out the window (I'm not actually going to throw them out the window, don't you worry!). But how do you actually maintain a "put together wardrobe"? Here's my plan: First of, I'm not going to buy things I don't need or don't have any use for. Also not gonna let my mother trick me into getting something that I may or may not wear at some point in the far away future, but most probably never will, just because it's on sale. Nope. Not happening. Secondly, if it's winter I'll keep the summer wear tucked away until next year and wise versa. There is absolutely no point in having knitted scarves taking up half the storages space in the midst of summer whilst trying to reach for the nearest bathing suit, is there? Third, this is something I'd like to call "Out with the old and in with the new". My aunt has this sort of rule that when she goes out to buy something new, two items need to go. Now I'm not quite sure about this so I'm going to leave it at not having more than two similar pieces (part from basic white tops and t-shirts because I live in those). Taking a look at my wardrobe, as far as the colour scheme goes, it consists of white, grey, black, blue and deep red. I've been meaning to try and add a bit more colour and I did recently buy a pair of velvet dusty rose shorts from Topshop. I also have my beloved striped trousers from Zara and a brand new light blue floral dress from NLY. So if all goes according to plan, hello new wardrobe!
