I adore clothes and fashion and like to look good, but these days funds are a little more limited to still be as frivolous with my purchases, and I am the WORST for moaning to Adam “I’ve got nothing to weeeeeear…”. As much as I hate to admit it, I occasionally fall victim of to one of the pitfalls of being a being at home with two tiny children and with no official office to go to: I can’t be always be arsed to ‘put’ an outfit ‘together’. So, I want to snap out of my rut and make the most of what I have. I ALWAYS feel better and have a spring in my step for the day if I know (in my mind) that I look good! So for 30 days, I am going to put together a different outfit every day from my current wardrobe (yikes!), and photograph it. I tried this on my old blog (that died a death, thank god!) for spring/summer dressing, and it worked with varying degrees of success.
The rules are as follows:
1. Wear a different outfit from your current wardrobe, every day, for 30 days.
2. If you buy any new clothes within your 30 days, you are not allowed to wear them for the purpose of this challenge
4. You can wear an item of clothing again within the 30 days i.e. same pair of jeans but with a different top, same top but worn with a skirt instead of trousers, you get the idea…
The point of this?
To remind ourselves that most of us probably DO have a wardrobe full of clothes that we forget about/don’t wear/are bored of, and to make the most of them, and to try and buck the trend for disposable fashion, or at least, buying too much of it.
It will save you money.
It’s better ethically and for the environment.
It means that you may well have some money left over to buy a key few pieces each season- crucial if you are really into your fashion!
I will post weekly showing my outfits for the previous week.
If you want to join in with me, even if it’s not every day, then feel free post your pics on your blog, twitter, FB or Pintrest account, using the hashtag #30daywardrobechallenge and tell me what you’re wearing, and where it’s from.
Looking forward to seeing a few outfits!
So, onto Day 1:
The photos above show a fairly standard day-to-day look of mine- skinnies, trainers and top, jazzed-up slightly with an interesting coat and/or jewelry. Whilst there is nada wrong with this look, it would be good to really get inside my wardrobe again and see if I can mix it up a bit…
Coat – New Look
Tshirt – Primark
Necklace – a present
Skinny Jeans – Topshop
Trainers – Superga
Bag – Marc by Marc Jacobs
Slightly awkward, cheesy grin – Mine, and mine alone
