I'm completely failing in this area, like I'm tempted to ignore this post and not own up to having this many clothes. I started typing my clothes up and have 3X the amount of clothes I thought I did. After moving from a warm climate to New England my wardrobe has literally doubled. I'm so cold all the time that I need layers year round now. I love comfy, cottony skirts, so I have a large skirt arsenal, but I realistically need pants, which I hate, for the winter/snow.
My other issues is that we live in an area that is 1/2 informal, country (need clothes that can get grubby or hold up in the snowy slush) and 1/2 high-end dressy(nice stuff to go out in, church, socialize with coworkers).
Since I've been refusing to purchase a lot of maternity clothes, I've been living in a 12 piece wardrobe. So obviously I can live with less, but I've felt embarrassed a few times because I'm always wearing the same shirts. I would want more for my normal wardrobe.
So here is my ridiculously shameful list:
1-5 dresses (1 long wintery one, 3 short ones, 1 formal one)
6-13 skirts (3 long, 5 short)
14-23 (9) long sleeve shirts and sweaters
24-29 (5) cardigans, these are my most worn items that I love
30-33 (4) 3/4 length mid-weight shirts
34-42 (9) short sleeve shirts
43-48 (6) tank tops, for the summer, swimming or the beach
49-55 (7) undershirts, I wear these alone during summer, under cardigans in the spring and fall and under sweaters in the winter so they really get used
56 pair of khaki shorts
57 pair of capris
58-59 (2) jeans
60 pair of khaki pants
61-62 (2) black pants
63 pair of gray pants
64 pair of ski pants
65 Swimming shorts
For Pj's, active wear (we play a lot of sports) or lounging around
68-71 (4) yoga type pants
72-75 (4) yoga type capris
76 (1) pair of shorts
77-88 (12 ) shirts
The short sleeve shirts, pj/active wear shirts, and tank tops can surely be cut down, but I'm going to wait till the summer to go through those.
I'm better with accessories.
2 pairs of gloves (1 ski, 1 everyday)
1 ski cap and 2 winter headbands
5 scarves, This is all you see with my coats during the winter. They are kind of like shirts and I like to have a few options.
Jewelry: Wedding ring, 2 bracelets, 3 necklaces
I have no desire to purge any of my shoes, I'm very happy with the amount I have. 2 pairs of flip flops, 2 sandals, 3 close-toed shoes/boots, 1 pair running shoes, 1 pair of snow boots
I am absolutely not disclosing how many jackets I own. I grew up in the deep south. Maybe after 20 years up here I can get rid of some, but for now it's not happening.
