Good job! You’re more than a third of the way through your wardrobe!
Today we’re moving on to all non-jean, non-workout pants:
- Work pants
Set that timer for 20, grab your pants and bring them all over to your bed.
If you have a few pairs of favorites that you wear weekly, set those aside and let’s look at the rest.
- Out of style?
- Too short?
- Too long?
- Not “you”?
- Aspirational? (From a past corporate life, or pre-baby body?)
- Stretched out?
Whatever they are, this is one area where I encourage you to truly only keep what you love. I know of an internationally known speaker that that lives with only 1 pair of pants. He wears the same pair everyday, while traveling the globe. Surely you could pare down to 4 or 5 pairs that you just love?
I’ve personally been getting by with 3 pairs of leggings and 2 pairs of slacks for the past year and haven’t noticed a great need to have more. I don’t even wear all of those in the week between laundry days. I also found that having leggings really lessened those “oh God, I’m fat and my pants don’t fit” moments. You can’t help but feel good in a pair of leggings that always fits, even when the scale fluctuates.
