I love style.
Everyone has one. Be it good, or bad....or really bad...everyone has one.
Last week I glanced in the mirror about 3:30 in the afternoon, just before the boys got home from school and thought to myself,
Wow...you look like someone who just doesn't care. When did that happen? This winter has beaten the style right out of me.
I had plenty of good reasons for my pajama-like clothing and dirty hair, none of which helped me to feel better. So I'm re-entering the world of showering and getting myself ready for the day, even if I have no where to go and nothing to do but take care of kiddos.
It's nice to be back.
I just feel better. Funny how that works.
Which brings me to my point (finally): I'm doing a little 30 for 30 challenge that I found on this blog called Kendi Everyday. She's adorable, by the way. It's about remixing the clothes I already have. It means 30 items, 30 outfits, in 30 days.
3 Rules: 1) Pick out 30 items to wear (shoes included, but not accessories or outwear)
2) Remix the 30 items into 30 (or more) different outfits
3) no shopping for 30 days
There's lots more info about it on her blog. But the idea of it is that you learn to shop your closet and love what you already have, and it forces creativity. And I work best under pressure...
It took me 2 days to commit to what was going in my 30 items pile. I poured over her suggestions and past remixes and stared at my closet dumbfounded that I could have that many clothes and think there's nothing to wear.
It's time to get creative with it.
So....that's what I'm up to.
I may post pictures. I may whine and cry. I may come up with some cute outfits that bring me back into the land of the living. ;)
But the challenge is on.
