Living in Paris for a month was a life (and style)-changing experience. Paris is known for its fashion, and everywhere I went, I saw stylish individuals who inspired me. At least once a day, I passed someone on the street and wished I could ask them to stop so I could take a picture. Basically, I was living in a real-life Pinterest board. So, you'd think I'd come home with the desire to purchase more and more clothes, but living in Paris had quite the opposite effect on me.
I've returned back home to my New York City apartment, and every crevice and corner of my small space is stuffed with clothes, shoes, bikinis, and coats. I'm grateful for my amazing wardrobe, but if I'm being honest, many of the trendy pieces no longer speak to me after spending time in Paris. When I began to unpack, I immediately realized that over the past few years, I had accumulated a lot of clothes that I simply do not need.
I am planning on hosting a lot this summer and want to have a clean apartment to do it in. With a lot of tough love and emotional support from my friends who sat with me as I sifted through things, I decided to clear out my wardrobe. The donation bins are filling up, and I'm the proud owner of my first-ever storage unit. Below, find the 8 things I immediately dropped frommy wardrobe after living in Paris for a month.
