I have pulled some older items out of the closet recently, but I've also realized that I like to re-use one of the same items back-to-back frequently, only further showing me that really I just need to complete the challenge anyway :)
Monday happy hr & Tuesday errands:
Black cami (Target) under gray floral patterned top (old Penney's); yellow cardi (Target); skinny jeans (old Walmart); black leather boots (Penney's)
Same outfit but with thrifted black pants
And I love the above outfit cause it screams "Portland" to me! :)
Same yellow cardi (Target); burgandy dress (old Walmart); brown tights/belt/flats, wool hooded coat (old Target)
Argyle sweater (Penney's), work-weight denim skirt (Target), ruffled gray suede boots
same boots, burgandy skirt (Kohl's), gray button down, black cami, black belt, long black cardi (Old Navy)
Family trip & happy hr in SE:
Skinny jeans; gray suede flats (Kmart); shirt (Penney's); old blue cardi (Target)
Mint shirt (recent Target); gray skirt (Target); same long cardi; black tights (YEARS old & Freddies); black suede flats (Kmart); black belt (from a diff outfit)
Based on these outfits alone I can already start to compile a list of items for my challenge:
Long black chunky cardigan
Wool hooded coat
Black leather boots
Black cami/white cami
Black trousers (only ones that fit me currently)
Mint green shirt
And being me, I'd HAVE to have at least three dresses, three more shirts, leggings, two pairs of flats, the black cardi, at least 1-2 sweaters, and at least 2-4 skirts.....hmmm I'm well on my way to designing a challenge... :)
It'd definitely make dressing easier...and I'd have less to worry about packing on any trips!
Accessories don't count do they? :)
But uh running and outdoor gear doesn't count....
What would you choose if you had to whittle down your wardrobe? Are there items you couldn't live without? Suggestions for what to include or items you think I could do without?
