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
Black skinny jeans
Blue skinny jeans
Navy blue blazer
Sleeveless long top
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.
Tank tops (to go under shirts for coverage/modesty)
Accessories (jewelry, scarves)
Bathing suit (got to give my girl, Jessica, a shout out for my awesome swimsuit)
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!
