Revamping My Wardrobefeatured


One of my goals for the new year is to revamp my wardrobe. For many reasons.

My closet is full of clothes of all sizes, but many of them don’t fit me any more. I have my “big” clothes that I can wear after pregnancy for a while. I have some “tiny” clothes that I will never fit into again (unless my hips magically turn back time by ten years or so).

Some of my clothes I’ve had since before I was married (some of them since {ahem} high school).

I have about seven skirts, but most of them don’t have a matching top anymore. I have dresses, but most of them either don’t fit or are not conducive to my lifestyle. And some of them are just plain out of style. Yikes!

I have a confession to make. I am a recovering mom-a-holic. Mom-a-holic: One who is addicted to going above and beyond for her children while neglecting her own health, appearance, and well-being. {chuckle}

While my body has definitely changed after three pregnancies, I haven’t placed much value on changing my wardrobe to keep up with the times. I am realizing now that it is important for me to have clothes that make me feel beautiful.  It benefits my family if I am feeling and looking my best.

I need to revamp my wardrobe, replacing clothes that don’t fit with well-fitting ones. My wardrobe philosophy is minimalist meets fashionista-mama. I want to be in style, but keep my number of clothing items manageable. I am also looking for clothes that are feminine, yet modest.

I am hopeful about this year being a year of changes in the right direction for myself and my family.  It will feel so good to get my home more in order, including my wardrobe.  I’ll be keeping you posted on my progress!

Are any of you recovering mom-a-holics? {giggle} Are there areas where you could give yourself a little more attention?  Let’s talk about it!
