A Non-Fashion Bloggers Journey | Building My Postpartum Wardrobe

This is my current wardrobe in it’s entirety. 

I have excluded workout clothes but since the purpose of my journey is to move away from fitness clothes those don’t count and my workout wardrobe could use an overhaul of its own but that is for another day. 

As you can see I have 3 tops, 2 bottoms, 4 pairs of shoes and 3 newly acquired pieces a dress, a romper and a denim jacket.  Of these items I could do without 2 of the tops and 2 of the shoes they have basically been included because I have them, wear them or they serve a purpose like the sandals for the beach or camping. Currently I have 12 items. 

My goal is to build a wardrobe with 30-35 pieces that I really love and that I feel good in right now. As I write that 30-35 makes me feel anxious after living for the past 15 or so months with only a max of 20 items in my wardrobe but I know that if I could have a bit more diversity I would feel so much better.

Most days I turn to workout clothes basically out of convenience because they are what I have more of and what are honestly clean. When you have three small children its very unlikely that you are able to re-wear things like jeans and sweaters because they end up with food and dirt on them on a daily basis and then there is laundry for five people – don’t even get me started. 

So now the question is what do I really need? What is my style? What color palette do I want? 

So tell me what do you think ever wardrobe needs? Where do you shop? What are you loving right now?
