A Love Letter to My Pre-Pregnancy Closet

Dear pre-pregnancy closet,

It’s not you, it’s me. It’s time we part ways for what looks like an extended period of time. I’ve known this day has been coming, although I really do feel like it came a bit sooner than expected. I really had hoped we could make it though the end of the summer, but who was I really trying to kid?

I specifically need to say good-bye to a few pieces:

  • To my best loved pair of skinny jeans: Sigh, you and I were just too good to be true. It feels like just last fall I finally got up my confidence to wear you. My only hope is that someday we will get back together again and you will still be in style.
  • To my workout tanks with built-in bras: I feel like I should sing to you “we’ve only just begun” by The Carpenters, since our relationship was relatively short lived. I won’t forget you, if you don’t forget me. Promise.
  • To my tall boots: I really thought for sure that I would be able to keep you around this fall, unfortunately, my cankles thought otherwise. I will keep you close to my heart, and my nose, as I love to smell your soft leathery goodness.
  • To my vintage wool coat: You’ve withstood the test of time, surely you can sit a season out and wait for me.
  • And lastly, to my high heels: Unfortunately, this might be the end of the road for us. Like, forever. I’m not sure I will ever be able to love you like you deserve to be loved. I think you might be better off without me. Please don’t hate me. I promise to find you a good home.

Again my dear closet, I really didn’t mean for this to happen so soon. Hopefully you can understand where I’m coming from, and wait for my return.

Love and understanding,

~ Emily xoxo

What’s been the hardest piece of clothing you’ve had to temporarily say goodbye to?
