In anticipation for France, I reduced my wardrobe nearly by half. Ok, that is a slight exaggeration. I reduced it by…a lot.
It was traumatizing to say the least but I went into it with a game plan: Anything ripped, that I haven’t worn for a while, that doesn’t match anything else in my wardrobe, not the right size, dated, and damaged was not making the cut.
Here are the clothes that lost the battle for a spot in my suitcase (can you believe I can only bring one!!!):
Goodbye old, pilled sweaters, unflattering tops and my prom dress
Here are the clothes that made the cut. Keep in mind I have another full drawer of clothes that also made the cut:
A measly little pile.
Although this may have been traumatizing, every little step that I’m doing for France makes me one step closer to being there. I would say goodbye to many more clothes if I had to, to get to France.
