Wardrobe Advice

A quote taken from http://www.insideoutstyleblog.com/ in an interview with Pauline from http://englishorganizer.com/
The one piece of advice most women need but don’t get?
We all have far too many clothes, most of which we don't love, or don't flatter us.  Weed out your wardrobe to include only items you love, and you'll be surprised how much easier it is to get dressed and how much better you feel.
I did get rid of a few things the other day for the latest charity bag, but still have a long way to go.

I have been wearing my new boots, and as a Clear Spring since very dark brown is one of my key colours,  have loads of things in the wardrobe to wear with them. Yesterday was the brown and orange 70s floral print knit dress, today is one with broken vertical stripes in black bown and gold. All worn with tights and a lined jacket, and this being me a big chunky necklace.

I unpacked all my necklaces yesterday, and pinned them up on two large cork boards so I can see them all.
2 were sent off to the charity shop, and another 5 were more mum than me and went in her direction, but all the rest are there waiting for me to choose one each morning. I do love my necklaces and they are one of the Ruth things in an outfit. I am enjoying also wearing some of my own sewn pieces. Knit dresses are so very comfortable, and the less crazy prints are OK with a jacket for work.

Oh Ruthie, it's a GREAT time to "weed out" for you!! New life, spring is coming (;-0)...
"OK" stuff sounds like it could end in a charity bag, too... Maybe??
Encourage you to have only GREAT clothes and accessories that reflect/ highlight "Ruthie" at her best ;)
Warm hug,

I will always have too many clothes in the closet and consequently will always be weeding out the closet. Like you, I love to sew and therefore, there are always more clothes appearing. Good luck with your weeding.

Good on you for doing a cull of your wardrobe. We tend to keep too much stuff that isn't working for us and clutters up not only our wardrobes but our minds!
