When your wardrobe is a true reflection of yourself it becomes a powerful way to support your current and future dreams.
Several months ago, I met with Lisa Sampson of Vermont Wardrobe Styling, and she helped me powerfully shift my relationship to my clothing. Her approach is based on the idea that your wardrobe should be a true reflection of yourself. I invite you to assess what’s in your closet using these suggestions:
Play with the idea that your wardrobe can nurture you. What if everything in your wardrobe supported who you are right now, and who you are becoming? What if you felt like your full, confident self in everything you wore?
Assess if there are items of clothing that could be removed. If the thought of editing your whole wardrobe all at once is too scary, start by simply removing the easy stuff...things you don't like or that you know you'll never wear again. Once you do that, take another look. Pick up (or try on) each item and ask yourself: Do I still want this? Does this item still support who I am? Does this piece reflect who I want to be?
Have space for what you love. Make sure this season’s clothes are easily accessible. If your closet or drawers feel cramped, put your summer clothes away in bins so you have space to find what delights you each day.
