Poem on Packing My Closet As Though It Were A Suit Case

New Look


What is this look I’m going for?

My style to hook, where less is more.

Not always denim, but often so

Could pin hair up or let it flow.

Clothes not ever pinching the waist.

Accessories on garments placed.


Expressive with my airs I wave,

Not wearing clothes ‘cause other’s rave.

Adding a bit of home made charm

Then some jewelry to grace my arm.

Kept simple, a mere few pieces,

So over-full closet ceases.

Owning only shoes I would wear,

No need to own twenty-two pair.

Keep it simple that’s my new style.

Wipe closet clean of that old pile.

One day as closet opens wide,

Just grab and go, away I stride.

June Nash

My closet if full of clothes I don’t wear.  I have too many shoes.  I find I wear the same comfortable clothes consistently.  Clearing out my closet is now my aim.  I am looking for a new look.  Something I can wear everyday.  Maybe something I could dress up a bit for nicer occasions.  Maybe several outfits that look identical that can have their look changed by accessorizing.  Simplifying my wardrobe will simplify my life. 

This is how I pack when I travel.  It is time I pack my closet like it were a suit case.

Poem about needing new clothes

Clothes Closet 

Closet full, nothing to wear,

Don’t care for clothes I see there.

Too big, too small, not my size.

Colors wrong, don’t match my eyes.

Styles have changed, so have I

Shopping go, I need to buy

Pants that stretch, and soft feeling.

Tops, not ones too revealing.

Wash and wear is right for me,

Dry clean and ironing free.

Body changed, attitude new.

Want look nice, but comfort too.

–                          – June Nash

It’s been a while since I’ve shopped for new clothes.  Some, I love, but . . . they just don’t fit!  I am searching for a simpler life.

I want to be able to reach in and grab anything from my closet and know it will not only fit, but look good.  I invited my daughters over to help me.

I have too many clothes, yet not enough.
