As part of the 40 Days of Lent, I am giving up items from my closet, placing in a bag and donating to a charity.

Any shopping that I'm going to do will come after I lose weight. emoticon
Today I found six shirts to donate and one to throw out.

Like I told you before. You can build a fabulous wardrobe with a few key pieces.

Black pants
Dark jeans, straight leg. Since skinny and boot cut are trendy and go in and out of style.
White button down blouse
Black skirt
Black blazer
Dress shoes
Non athletic lace up shoes

Or if you prefer brown, beige or navy

I sorted through all of my pants and found FIVE pairs to donate! I also found that I'm basically only an inch or two away from being able to wear a few other pairs. It's nice to know there's something I can do to get closer to creating that look I want even while I'm waiting to lose weight.

I have closets and closets filled with clothes and always lament that I have nothing to wear. I really need a good cleaning weekend to weed out the too big-too small and the out of style.

emoticon Going through our belongings often gives us a new perspective. (That, or are you just getting an emotional jump on that soon to be "Sping Cleaning"?) Either way---its good!!

A t shirt that said, Meet Me at the Barre would be so cute. I do prefer solid t shirts though.

I'm cleaning out my closet too. For items I'm not sure of. I put them in a bag. If I don't go after them for 6 months. It goes to Charity's Closet

I was digging around for jeans that I could wear to work. I found a pair of jeans that didn't fit. Even if they did fit I'd have to get rid of them the rise is a bit too low to be good for my personal brand (and I'm trying to overhaul my image in real life.) In the donation box they went.
I also found a pair that almost fits -meaning another "good" month or two and I can wear them.
There's more I haven't decided on yet. Probably ought to go through all my clothes and accessories (though there's not that many, in opinion). I don't need a big wardrobe, but I want what I do have to look great and be suitable for most occasions (hence, why I tend to pick workout shirts that look more like regular tee shirts and don't say things such as "Meet Me at the Barre").
