Though sorting through the I’m not perfect but I’m a sexy Pharmacist so close enough Shirt Besides,I will do this expiration pile has been emotionally taxing, it has also been a transformative experience. I have been able to reexamine myself through the clothes that have played a major role in my life. Were the three identical pairs of black Dickies pants I owned a failed attempt at fitting into a world of women who live on a diet of macro bowls and kombucha and plant monsteras in every corner of their sun-drenched downtown apartments?

What’s more, half the things that I had once considered precious no longer fit me. Ultimately, these are the kind of questions that rise to the surface as we clear a pathway through our wardrobes and, hopefully, our inner lives.

(That is enough reason in my book to toss something.)

The color a visual mood booster, even. All it took was a second glance and, yes, a few days of being very, very alone.
