clothes diary

I feel like I have a lot of clothes, so I listed them all out and it turns out I have 39 or 47 if you include coats and scarves.


I have decided to keep a track of what I wear for the next month to see if I need all of my clothes and really to see what I actually wear.  I have seen/heard a variety of versions of this but for me, keeping track using a list I’ve made seems the easiest.

why do i want to do it?

I feel like I have some clothes that are just lurking about and not actually being worn.  They might as well go to someone who will rather than just collecting dust with me.  Some I think I feel are a bit too young for me.  I did recently turn 30 and I think my style should feel a little more grown up now.
