Yesterday marked day ten of the ten-day closet challenge that I attempted after one of my blogger friends, Bailey, asked me to try it with her! It was a fun little adventure. In some ways it made my life easier. With limited choices, choosing what I’m going to wear went a lot quicker. However, it also meant that when the baby spat up on me and then I accidentally spilled spaghetti sauce when I was making dinner, I had limited choices in what to do. Right now this isn’t a very feasible long term option. In this season of life I need to have back up clothes on back up clothes on back up clothes.
That said, so far the biggest thing I would’ve changed about my clothing choices would’ve been my shoes! I wanted to choose shoes that I thought would go well with my outfits, but let’s be honest, I’m a mom and choosing a pair of heels was so impractical. I mean, yes, I got to wear them to church. But besides that when do I actually need to wear heels unless it’s date night? So it’s safe to say I definitely missed my Birkenstocks, but I am surprisingly happy that I utilized some of the less loved shoes in my closet.
One thing that I realized from this challenge is how versatile my closet can be. I went outside of my comfort zone, as the StyleBeee blog challenged, and choose a cotton skirt that I haven’t worn in three years. It was fun to get to use it again. It felt good to take advantage of what is in my closet.
This has been a fun experience! I would definitely recommend it to anyone who asks. Here is a peek of what I have been wearing the past few days. Thank you so much Bailey for challenging me! This was a fun thing to do with you and Laura Beth. If any of you decide to try this please tag me that I can follow along with your experience!
((All of the clothing brands and sizes worn are listed in my original post, here. The jewelry is a mix of a fossil watch and an assortment of rings & a pendant necklace from Tiffany & Co. The bracelets are from my MOPS group and the chunky black necklace is from the clearance table at Franchesca’s- $9 what what!! The black purse wallet is from Michael Kors. It is several seasons old, but it is a classic shape and they have an almost identical bag in sock today. The blurred out black bracelet was from Kate Spade’s 2016 cat themed novelty line, which isn’t being sold anymore!))
