Too often I find that I have pieces of clothing I really LOVE, but rarely wear because I’m so afraid I’ll ruin it. Or maybe I want to save it for a super “special” occasion. But then, what’s the point of having it in the first place?? So I’m working on not only wearing the pieces I love, but also getting rid of anything that doesn’t bring me joy (even if it’s “practical”!). If you’ve read the book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, you’ll know what I’m talking about 😉 I still have a ways to go on simplification, and letting go of things that no longer serve me (both in my wardrobe and in life), but making good progress!
So today I broke out one of my favorite maxi skirts…long, flowy and light pink 🙂 and matched it with a top that combines more things I love…lace and the color cream (yes I consider cream a color and it really is my favorite haha). And guess what…wearing them brought me so much JOY. Life’s too short to say yes to things that are “eh” and “okay” (this includes events, relationships, jobs, etc) because they occupy your time and energy, so that you don’t have the chance to say yes to the things you LOVE. So just wear it. And maybe channel some jungle goddess vibes while you’re at it 😉
