I thought that I might take a small pause in this Wardrobe Planning series and find out what other bloggers have to offer on this issue, particularly for older women. I have discovered some very interesting and useful posts and have listed them here for readers to explore. If any of you know any really good writing on this subject, please let me know and I will add it to the list.
I am going to start with my favourite style and fashion blog:

Two posts by the lovely Janice to help you assess your existing wardrobe and remove items that are no longer needed. This wardrobe weeding really appeals to the Librarian in me! Do explore the rest of her site as it is crammed full with amazing ideas. She has also posted today on this topic – how topical! Ouch!

I have mentioned Marie Kondo in a previous Wardrobe Planning post. Her book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying, covers de-cluttering and organising an entire house and I have found many aspects of it very useful. I have used an adapted form of her folding methods to sort out my clothes drawers and this has been very successful for me. Here are some videos to give you ideas:
