Welcome to Monday night at my house. Wednesday night too.
Why is it that despite the fact that my closet is bursting at the seams, I have nothing to wear?!!?
Lately I've been really struggling with my propensity toward materialism. Rather than feel guilty and make no change, I'm embarking on a new journey--because I really believe that conviction ought to lead to action.
What is this journey?
It is nothing as bold as when I read the Bible in 90 Days (B90X) or when I did the "real" P90X. But it is a huge move. For me.
I am doing the 30/30 challenge.
The 30 for 30 challenge was the brain child of Kendi from Kendi Everyday and encourages people to pick 30 (or fewer) items from their closet and mix, re-mix, and re-re-mix them into 30 stylish outfits.
To prove that with just a little bit of creativity, you can work with what you've got!
1. Pick 30 items or less from your closet. Shoes are included, but accessories, jewelry, underwear, and outerwear are not (thank goodness because I couldn't make it into December without a ski jacket).
2. Remix the 30 items into 30 different outfits.
That's it! Well not entirely ...
3. Don't shop for 30 days.
I'm going all in (and so are 337 other bloggers).
Here are my BOLD choices.
White long-sleeved T--Gap
Grey frilly T--Old Navy
|See the green shirt in the middle? It got axed. I counted wrong :(|
Left--Old Navy Diva Skinny
Middle--American Eagle Favorite Boyfriend
Right--American Eagle Boyfriend 77
Black trouser--Express Editor
Khaki--so old I can't read the tag
Black slouchy boots--Thrift
Zebra ballet flat--Target
For the next 30 days, this is all you'll see me in. Wish me luck.
(FYI--I was totally emotional picking out the clothes. My fave red Mary Janes didn't make the final cut. I feel like I'm cheating on them. Oh, and I TOTALLY am going to wear my snow boots to work but take them off to put on dress shoes. Even the 30/30 isn't worth risking heels on icy WY sidewalks).
