Let the PURGE begin!
As you go through your wardrobe, set aside time to be intentional about it. Use your “wardrobe word” to guide you, and be realistic. If you’re like me and you’re being intentional about working on your body, it’s okay to set aside the items that you plan to revisit at a specified time in the future for a “wardrobe audit” (for me that’s 6 months).
Again be realistic. If you know you’re goal is a size 8 and you’re still holding onto clothes in a size 4… you know what you need to do!
If there is anything that doesn’t fit, makes your feel uncomfortable, and just not like the best version of yourself, toss it. Life is too short, and way too busy to settle for uncomfortable frumpy clothes.
LET IT GO!
We’re on a mission to look and feel amazing in the clothes that we wear while we work toward the body we want! And believe me, that will only happen if you get intentional and let go of what no longer serves you!
How I’m working the process in the moment!
Last night hubby and I had date night and I loved the outfit I was able to pull together. I already owned everything… and it felt amazing to go into my closet and pull from the things that I not only love… but they FIT RIGHT NOW!
As much as I would have loved to wear my fave pair of distressed denim, they don’t fit right now… so I had to put all of them aside for the next 6 months, and focus on the here and now.
So first I removed every single pair of jeans that didn’t fit my 10 week postpartum body and put them in a vacuum sealed bag (labeled 6 month wardrobe audit). Then of what bottoms I had left, I had to decide what to purge and what to keep. I only kept bottoms that fit now, felt good and they had to be “effortless”… meaning no struggle to get them on or off!
So here I am, wearing a pair of jeggings that
🙌🏾 Fit me now
🙌🏾 Feel great on my body
🙌🏾 And effortlessly flow with my current wardrobe
And I felt wonderful!
These will be a repeat item for sure, while I work my way back into my pre-prego wardrobe. But the key takeaway is to literally get rid of anything that no longer serves you in this season. It’s time to PURGE!
