30 in 30: Wardrobe Remix

I first heard of the 30 in 30 Wardrobe Remix from Eliza, a friend and blogger who decided to put her closet to work and create 30 different outfits in 30 days, using only 30 items. She is going to do it again this fall, and I'm going to participate as well- starting tomorrow!

My reasons: I get lazy. I'm not a morning person, and that's typically when I get dressed, so it's easy for me to get into an outfit rut and not think creatively at all about what to wear. Also, like many women, I have a tonne of clothes and probably only wear about 2% of my wardrobe in any given week, and I can admit it- I'm boring with my wardrobe. Pants and sweaters, accessorized with a necklace.Yawn.

The rule I'm going to dress by:
  • 30 items, which will consist entirely of visible clothes (obviously undercrackers, socks, etc. won't count).
  • I'm not including shoes into this, because I'm not a shoe person and I know perfectly well I'll either wear black flats or rain boots for the next 30 days, without fail. 
  • No outfit can be worn exactly the same way twice. 
  • Accessories are not included, and will be used as much as possible to punch up the existing clothing choices. It's about time I make the most of all the scarves and handbags I own, for goodness sake.
I've been reviewing my Pinterest Style Board to get some ideas of the sort of things I'd like to be wearing, to ensure that those are the items that make the cut for the next 30 days. Let's see how well I do. I'm giving myself extra credit if I manage to do stuff with my hair, too. Sometimes long hair is such a lazy cop-out, it's so easy to do absolutely nothing with it.

Oh, you definitely should take pictures of your outfits!

monikita said...

I agree with the others - I would love to see pics of your daily outfits! Maybe a flickr set, if you don't feel like blogging them all?

Please post. You are an inspiration! When we travel, I pack basic solids (navy for me, though black is more versatile) and change the look with jewelry and scarves. My husband and I can go three weeks with two carry-ons, and go everywhere from the beach to a memorial service. but I do get pretty tired of the clothes by then.

Cassy said...

Sounds like an excellent challenge! I hope you post many of your results. I agree with others--this would be brilliant for travel.

It's a good idea, maybe I will give it a try. It's a shame that we own a great wardrobe and not using it to it's full potentials (the same is true for accessories, at least in my case). I found that it's much easier to choose and prepare the garment for the next day because I have no desire to think about it after I wake up in the morning, but sometimes I'm too tired and lazy even for that...

That's a cool challenge!

Kristi ~ ArtSea said...

I love it! I may have to try this inspirational idea myself! My wardrobe could use this extra punch!

Francesca said...

Love this idea! I'm trying to be more creative with my clothes as well...as a way of slowing down with my shopping habit...I know it helps the economy, but it's not helping mine! So I want to stretch out my wardrobe as much as I can...

Monica said...

This sounds like a great idea. I should definetly do this for the coming winter....hmmmmmm, I think I might!
