When we moved into our house over a year ago, I had to take a moment to fully grasp what it meant for my clothing “collection”. My closet is exactly 6 feet wide, with one hanging rod. I had been thinking about minimizing my “stuff” lately anyway—we just don’t need a lot of stuff! So, I made it a goal to fit every piece of clothing I owned either in my dresser or closet. And SEVEN trash bags to Goodwill/Consignment later, it all did.
I feel much better have an edited closet, full of only the things that I actually wear on a regular basis. It makes it a lot easier to make outfits. Plus, no “skinny” pants to shame me when I go for that second bowl of ice cream. (Skinny pants are always mean—I think it’s because they’re hungry.)
Why am I telling you this? Because this old jean jacket made the cut. I bought it in 1999 years ago at Gap Kids, when jean jackets were very “in”. I just knew it would come back! It has faded considerably over the years from it’s original deep hue, but I like it better that way.

High five, self, for making such a good call. Now go enjoy a bowl of ice cream.
