My 30 X 30 Wardrobe Challenge



The other day I was blog hopping (you know where you read the comments of your favorite blogs and click on the commenters' links to find new blogs) and I stumbled upon Kendi Everyday and her wardrobe challenge, the 30 X 30 Remix. She created this wardrobe challenge to push herself to "shop" her wardrobe more, thus appreciating and being creative with the clothing she had, rather than always focusing on the pieces she wanted. Instantly I was hooked. I have this exact same problem and I want to challenge myself to "shop" my wardrobe more!

So here we go, I am going to select 30 pieces of clothing (including shoes, but not including accessories) and create 30 outfits over the next 30 days! This week I plan on selecting my pieces (25 pieces of clothing and 5 pairs of shoes) and photographing them to share. Selecting my clothing items will be difficult, since this is Florida and I have no idea if it will "get cold" over the next month!

I will begin the challenge on October 16th and finish on November 18th (I know that's more than 30 days, but I will explain below). You can follow me on Instagram to see my daily creations and each week I will post a recap.

My rules:
  • I have to make a complete outfit each day from only the 30 items I have selected.
  • I must wear every item at least once before the end of the challenge.
  • I must reduce my shopping habit (I am not eliminating shopping completely because I think that's a little extreme. I mean, what if there is an incredible sale?).
  • I am allowed one "pause" from November 7th through November 10th when I visit my mom in North Carolina. The weather there will be much colder and I wouldn't be able to wear those heavier winter pieces over the next 30 days in Florida.

What I hope to gain:
  • Wardrobe Creativity!
  • An appreciation for the items I already own.
  • A better sense of what I actually need in my wardrobe.

Anybody else want to join me in this challenge?

  2. Oh this is so great! Super idea! Good luck with it! Not sure I would have much fun doing it, as I wear scrubs to work every day and don't get to dress up much. I can't wait to see how you do!

  3. That's a great way to work out what you do and don't wear as well! It took me a year in France living out of one suitcase to realise which of my clothes I wanted to have with me all the time and what just hangs in my wardrobe never being worn..!

  6. I love this idea! Maybe I'll consider accepting your challenge, but first I need to see what you come up with in the beginning. I need to be better at using all the pieces in my wardrobe and this is a great way to do it.

  8. Wow, this is quite a challenge! I think I am not enough of a planner to pull it off - although maybe I'll give it a shot when the weather settles down, right now it's a bit bipolar, one day it's 70, and the next 45!

  10. I love this idea! Hahaha, and I LOVED your comment: "I am not eliminating shopping completely because I think that's a little extreme. I mean, what if there is an incredible sale?" Haha--You crack me up. I'm with you, though. I could NOT refrain from shopping for a month. Ugh. Maybe I need to reassess my priorities? (Or not. ;)) So excited to follow you on this challenge, girl!
