Challenge, Challenge, Challenge

Wardrobe Challenges and Remixes 

It's time for my quarterly update for all three of my readers. A lot of people know that I love to shop. I have a lot of nice clothes but I have a basic uniform. I wear that shirt with those jeans. I wear that dress with that cardigan. You won't really see me in earrings, never a necklace, barley a bangle. The function for a belt was to hide a waist gap. I like to look good but I wanted to also look effortlessly put together like my friend Bew Radley. So I took some time to study up.

1. I used Project 333 to learn how to pick a capsule wardrobe. I didn't want to have bunch of clothes that I never wear. I made it  through six months but I think it reinforced my tendency to have a uniform. I wanted have style and pizzaz.

2. Then I went on to the 30 for 30 Remix. I used 30 pieces of clothing and shoes and wore a different outfit everyday for 30 days. Accessories weren't included so it helped me learn how to stretch myself.  People at work noticed that I was so well put together and I felt great getting dressed everyday.

3. The next challenge I plan to do is the Freckles in April 21-Day Challenge.

I used Polyvore to try and plan out my outfits. I would have worn the gray skirt and a white collared button down shirt. Plain Jane. Instead I wore this outfit. What do you think?
