My Ten Favorite Winter Clothing Items {The Things I Wear the Most}

Are you watching the Marie Kondo show on Netflix, Tidying Up? I binge watched the first few episodes, I love how cute and upbeat she is no matter how big the mess is!  It is interesting to see how her “tidying up” process works, if you haven’t checked the show out you might enjoy it too.  I’ll admit that after watching the show and seeing the large amounts of clothing that some of the people owned, it made me start thinking about what was in my own closet.

While I don’t think I have a crazy huge wardrobe, I am guilty of having those “go-to” pieces I wear all the time, then I have a whole bunch of other stuff that just sits on the shelves. I have heard that is typical, that most people wear about 20% of our clothing or something like that. I believe it! That made me start thinking about what were the best pieces I owned, the ones I actually wore all the time. I thought I’d share them today instead of our usual Friday Sale Favorites (we’ll be back with those soon if you are missing them).  This is a winter list, but maybe I’ll do a summer one if this is helpful.

The January Hustle–Getting Healthy in the New Year
