WHY YOUR WARDROBE SUCKS

How’s your day going so far?

I’m guilty. At some point last year my wardrobe sucked. It was so dead and full of lifelessness. I couldn’t stand it! Ever feel like you  wanted to claw your eyes out ? Yup.Me too. Everyday I would stand in front of my wardrobe and feel so drained. Getting dressed was the most boring part of my day. I couldn’t take it any longer and decided to take steps to change that sad state of affairs. Here’s why you could be like me.Here’s why your wardrobe sucks :

1.YOUR WARDROBE IS OUTDATED.

You haven’t bought anything in a year …or ten…just kidding…It can’t be that bad.Or is it? 😀 If you’re like me who doesn’t like to wear the same thing too many times,you love getting new stuff to avoid boredom. Getting new stuff is includes going shopping and doing stuff like closet exchanges. Having new things in your closet should help you get out of your rut. It gives you something to look forward to.

2.YOUR WARDROBE IS POORLY ORGANIZED.

This was me too.  By poorly organized I mean lack of order in your closet. You’ve thrown your clothes in there without folding or hanging them or if you’ve folded and hanged them, there’s just no way you can find anything because everything is with everything. The jeans are with the skirts and tops and you just can’t find anything. To make it worse your cat also got lost in there somewhere together with your dirty socks from yesteryears. 😀 It’s frustrating when you’re running late and you’re still trying to find those khaki pants you had planned to wear.

3.YOUR WARDROBE IS IMPRACTICAL.

When you’re a student like me but your wardrobe is mostly composed of glam dresses and heels,then there’s a problem. You end up having nothing to wear to school. Also,you’re a kindergarten teacher and you have tons of 5-inch heels and zero flats.This means that when shopping, you’re always thinking of the event you’ll go to without considering your everyday life.

4.YOU HAVE MANY OF THE SAME THING.

I usually see some people having like 10 grey t-shirts. You get frustrated when you see your 10 t-shirts hanging in your closet and complain about having nothing to wear. I think sometimes when buying stuff you need to get out of your comfort zone. Stop playing it safe.  There’s only so many grey t-shirts you can have. But if you’re content,well and good. 🙂

5.YOUR CLOTHES/SHOES/ACCESSORIES WENT OUT OF STYLE.

I always sing about trends. They may seem like a good idea at the time but will come to bite you down the line. When you have many trendy clothes you’re always worried about the future. Sometimes you’re left with clothes you feel like you can’t be seen in public with because they’re not in vogue anymore.

I really don’t like birkenstocks. The only reason I would get them is because they are trendy. Photo courtesy of Pinterest.

These are just some of the reasons why I found that my wardrobe sucked. What are other reasons? Weigh in below! 🙂

  1. I love this piece coz i can resonate with it. At times drastic weigh gain or loss distabilises ones wardrobe. Personally I feel the need to advance my personal style so I periodically feel I have nothing to wear.

  2. Can’t stop grinning to this lovely post..just like you, I get bored of wearing the same thing over n over…I have fallen prey one too many times ‘I have nothing to wear’ 🙂 Fine,my closet is neat and all but findind a particular item would take ages..goodness..almost like a ceremony..to save my sorry state,I would have all my pieces(for five working days) over the weekend, pressed and hanged to avoid running late or better yet loosing it.I knew I had stacks and stacks of items I haven’t worn close to two or three years,majorly because I had outgrown some/others were not visible LOL..I can go on n on about this.So i found time and did a MASIVE arrangement,gave some to charity and friends.I purposed to do that every six months just keep tab of what I have/don’t/don’t need as continue to shop for more 🙂

    • Hehe. Yeah. It can get boring to wear the same stuff. I also got rid of a pile of stuff and it was so liberating. Good to hear you’ll be giving to charity! 🙂 Thanks for being a loyal reader.
