Part of what I noticed doing my 3 mini 10×10 challenges (see 1, 2, 3) was that I’m not wearing enough of my wardrobe. I used to pick out my clothes on Sunday evening for the entire work week. I basically did little weekly capsules choosing a pant & skirt/dress to alternate for 4days wearing jeans on Fridays. I would pick a different top/topper from each “category” in my closet; tank, t shirt, blouse, button down, sweater, cardigan, blazer, jacket so as not to duplicate my look each day. I would also rotate my clothing hanging the most recently worn pieces in the back & only choosing from the front portion so I was wearing each piece routinely rather than a few pieces repeatedly.
Over the next 28days I will snap a pic of my ootd & then journal what I wore to track not only the pieces, but my thoughts & feelings about the look.
There will be no rules, such as not wearing the same thing twice. I plan to use this as a tool to discover what I still need to work on in my wardrobe.
What patterns do I see? Were those expected?
Is there something a really like, but don’t wear often?
Is there something missing?
Do I need to declutter?
Full disclosure I found this challenge on A Small Wardrobe. She has found that while she has already cut her wardrobe down from 150 items to 30, that she still mostly wears 10-15items. I just recently began following her posts & I find her minimalist approach refreshing.
Feel free to join in the challenge. It may have you thinking differently about the way you wear your wardrobe.
