Day 2 of cleaning out my closet as part of my 5 Things a Day for 5 Days series. I had a lot of anxiety about today. It’s jeans day. I’m somewhat of a jeans hoarder. I’m embarrassed at how many pairs of jeans I have…..some are about 10 years old…..and they haven’t been worn….in 10 years. I’ve kept a lot of them around thinking maybe I’d fit into them again or maybe they would come back into style, neither of which has happened.
Today I got rid of 5 pairs…..that’s progress. A few pairs I didn’t even have to try on. They were THAT questionable. The high-waisted 70′s pair? Those were thrown out because let’s be honest, only Gisele can pull those off. I don’t know what I was thinking when I bought those. Two pairs that I parted with had a super low rise that would only be appropriate if I was Lady Gaga….and well, I’m not. The remaining jeans I would classify as my mom jeans. I don’t think they were always mom jeans, but jeans have come so far in the last few years that these definitely would fall into the “old model” category.
