Having a slim wardrobe or a capsule has forced me to look more intentionally at my closet. How it works well together, where the gaps might be, and how it makes me feel on any given day. I don’t think I ever have spent this much time thinking about those things previously. I probably could have very easily done so before, but I didn’t and therefore continued to spend cluelessly.
I'm amazed at the difference between yesterday and today. Yesterday was not so pretty. It was rough. It felt like trying to button jeans that were definitely a size too small. Desperately trying to make them work, but inevitably having that disappointing feeling as you just can't get them to work. And then just feeling worse about yourself because you're just reminded that you can't fit in them like you once used to.
