I Just Cleaned Out My Closet, and These 11 Things Made Me Cringe

I love adding to my closet, but I hate cleaning it out. I usually wait until things get completely out of hand and I can barely even walk into it (see photo below), and then I begrudgingly attempt to clean out my closet in the shortest amount of time possible, immediately followed by a trip to Goodwill to purge myself of the items before I change my mind.

I got married earlier this year, and one of the things that fell by the wayside while wedding planning was the upkeep of my closet. The worse it got, the more I put it off. But I finally bit the bullet and tackled it from top (as in literally shoeboxes touching the ceiling) to bottom. Among the items lurking in the depths of my closet were certain outdated trends and items just taking up space that were enough to make me cringe. Keep scrolling to find out what they are, as well as what I'm keeping and replacing the offending pieces with.
