Face Your Fashion Fears – 7 Items for 30 Days

Challenges help us face our fears.

What will people think if they see me wear an outfit more than once? Will I get bored with fewer choices? Why do I care what people think of me or my wardrobe? If these fears resonate with you, then it might be a good idea to face them with this challenge.

It’s Day 2 of #TheClosetChallenge and so far, I feel confident with the 7 items I chose for the rest of the month.  (You can read about the challenge here).  And even though my closet looked pretty darn bare today as I stared at the lonely 7 items– it felt good to be free from fashion clutter.

I decided to post which items I chose in order to help you in your choices and to publicly be held accountable for my choices. Dear God, I hope I picked wisely!

My 7 Items of Clothing

  1. Black skinny jeans

  2. Blue skinny jeans

  3. Black blazer

  4. Navy blue blazer

  5. Graphic Tee

  6. Sleeveless long top

  7. Black, flowy top

I chose pieces I could dress up or down with the appropriate accessories and shoes. I decided against any dresses or skirts because my speaking engagements this month are not in venues that require it. Plus, I don’t quite fit into many of my skirts/dresses since having baby #2 and I wasn’t about to buy more clothes for this challenge. Since, I am a nursing Momma, I picked out clothing that will work with my life and baby feeding needs. I hope my decisions were practical enough for the next 30 days – but we’ll see.

Now, we are not savages – there are a fair amount of freebies within this challenge so you don’t get too stinky or get freaked out about wearing skinny jeans to the gym.


  • Undergarments

  • Tank tops (to go under shirts for coverage/modesty)

  • Shoes

  • Accessories (jewelry, scarves)

  • Coats

  • Bathing suit (got to give my girl, Jessica, a shout out for my awesome swimsuit)

  • Pajamas

  • Gym clothes (worn at the gym only, not to be a daily outfit)

I hope you join us and am excited to take this challenge with you. Make sure you use the hashtag #TheClosetChallenge to post your daily outfits and comments on the challenge. Sarah and I look forward to this fashion fast with you!
