I first heard of the 30 in 30 Wardrobe Remix from Eliza, a friend and blogger who decided to put her closet to work and create 30 different outfits in 30 days, using only 30 items. She is going to do it again this fall, and I’m going to participate as well- starting tomorrow!
My reasons: I get lazy. I’m not a morning person, and that’s typically when I get dressed, so it’s easy for me to get into an outfit rut and not think creatively at all about what to wear. Also, like many women, I have a tonne of clothes and probably only wear about 2% of my wardrobe in any given week, and I can admit it- I’m boring with my wardrobe. Pants and sweaters, accessorized with a necklace.Yawn.
The rule I’m going to dress by:
- 30 items, which will consist entirely of visible clothes (obviously undercrackers, socks, etc. won’t count).
- I’m not including shoes into this, because I’m not a shoe person and I know perfectly well I’ll either wear black flats or rain boots for the next 30 days, without fail.
- No outfit can be worn exactly the same way twice.
- Accessories are not included, and will be used as much as possible to punch up the existing clothing choices. It’s about time I make the most of all the scarves and handbags I own, for goodness sake.
I’ve been reviewing my Pinterest Style Board to get some ideas of the sort of things I’d like to be wearing, to ensure that those are the items that make the cut for the next 30 days. Let’s see how well I do. I’m giving myself extra credit if I manage to do stuff with my hair, too. Sometimes long hair is such a lazy cop-out, it’s so easy to do absolutely nothing with it.
