Parting is such sweet sorrow: Shop my closet Pt 1 - Pants & Jeans

Ah, it is a bittersweet thing that I am (slowly) returning to my 'normal' weight.  Don't get me wrong, I am glad to be fitting more of my wardrobe now, reuniting with some old friends, but that means that I no longer fit some newer-made ones.  As I started gaining weight, or after having Lil J #1's, I kept buying things too small, not knowing my 'new' size.  As a result, I went the other way, and kept buying things that were too big, again, not knowing my size. In the next week I will be listing wardrobe items, many that I never got the chance to wear, some still new with tags.  Also, I started going through some clothes I had kept 'just in case' I lost my baby weight, and some I found I have already bought substitutes, or similar items, or just don't suit my lifestyle anymore, so my items will be from AUS/UK6 or US 2 to AUSUK /12 or US 8 (yes, I know!).  I will also be listing some shoes and accessories.

The timing of my wardrobe cull is not great, as I'm leaving in about 2 weeks for Europe, but I know if I don't start now while it's in the forefront of my mind, I will never get round to it.   I just started going through my wardrobe again, having had to store some of it in a separate wardrobe due to lack of space. My plan is to continue clearing my wardrobe when I get back.

I thought I'd start with some pants:

I have also reduced some previously listed items:
