Three posts in one day? Obviously I have some time on my hands and I am making up for my missed time yesterday!
I love seeing all my looks together. I know I get inspired when I see other people where the same items different ways, so I like being able to inspire myself!
Some stats for the challenge:
Items worn the most: a 3 way tie between 3 different pairs of shoes: gray wedges, flips flops and ballet flats (each worn 6 times)
Items worn the least: a 2 way tie betrwwn brown platform wedges and white chinos (only worn once!)
Favorite Look: 19, because I love color
Least favorite look: 2, because it was a bit dull
What I learned: I really should have chosen some more interesting casual tops than the ribbed tanks, because they got real boring real quick. Accessories can definitely make a look. A girl can never have enough shoes!
What I am taking away: Less really is more because having a limited wardrobe to choose from made getting dressed much easier. Except for shoes: Shoes are like accessories than really can change an outfit. I have more clothes than I can possibly wear so being creative can stretch my wardrobe. I don't have to shop all the time.
What next: I am looking forward to "shopping my closet" in September. I bought a number of things from our last 2 trips that I haven't yet pulled out. So I will have a lot of new clothes to wear without even spending more money!
I have a feeling some of the items in my 30 will still be in strong rotation because they are great for work. And I am okay with that.
I wish I had the guts to join The Great American Apparel Diet but I know myself well enough that I don't have that kind of will power. So instead I am going to put myself on a monthly budget and make sure I buy only what I love and what I can incorporate into my existing wardrobe. If I want something that is outside the monthly budget, then I will have to wait and save more.
I am also going to attempt to limit which fashion/style blogs I visit. My need for new things stems from wanting what I see other people buying. I keep reminding myself there will always be new pretty things that I will want and I will never be able to have it all so just chill and enjoy what I have. I think that should work.
