We have reached the midway point for mine and Heather’s (best friend and old roomie) 30 day challenge. If you haven’t been following along on Instagram (@the.B.Law and @heathersheridan), Heather and I are doing a 30 day shopping ban for the month of August PLUS we have to wear a different outfit everyday with no repeats. Between her and I, we have so many clothes that it didn’t seem too difficult, but I have noticed for work purposes since I am in an office it really takes effort to plan ahead of time. At the end of the 30 days we are going to go though our closets together and get rid of the stuff we didn’t wear. We figured it will be a good way to “fall clean” since we failed at spring cleaning. We have been going strong! I think our biggest struggle is taking our own picture everyday and not having someone to do it for us!
Check out out progress so far and be sure to follow along on Insta!
On Wednesdays we wear an outfit again… (I really hope you understood that reference)
Anyways… It’s Wear Again Wednesday where I take a previously worn outfit and change it up a bit. For those of you who know me I rarely wear the exact same outfit more than once unless it’s one I REALLY love. But I’ve been trying to recycle my outfits instead of shopping and it’s working however, it does take some work. It can be so hard to just stare at your closet and see all the same clothes all the time. Imagination is needed to create new outfits! I saw the sleeve of one of my chambray tops sticking out of my overstuffed closet and saw the bottom of my red striped t-shirt dress and this outfit instantly came to me. I bought this dress and necklace last year for the Fourth of July. It’s a combination that is pretty noticeable when worn again so I changed the shoes and added the chambray top and left it open like a cardigan. Although very similar to the original version, I liked it better today!
If any of you share my feelings about repeating outfits try this out! It is almost like a challenge to myself to reinvent something I have already worn!
As for shopping this look I can tell you where everything is from, but it is all older so I can’t link the exact items: dress- Target / chambray top- Forever 21 / statement necklace- Charming Charlie / sandal wedges- Madden Girl by Steve Madden
So I do not know why I have never worn joggers before today. They are the most comfortable things ever! I felt like I was wearing pajamas in disguise to work today. It was like I fooled everyone at the office into thinking I was wearing real pants. I have had these babies for TWO MONTHS and have not worn them until today. They had been hanging in my closet collecting dust. I finally decided I had to wear them and looked on Pinterst to find an outfit idea. I saw one I liked and BOOM, recreated it with what I had (I love being able to do that). Black joggers that I got on Black Friday from Target, a loose black and white stripped v-neck tee, an olive jacket, and my taupe, tassel Steve Madden booties. The perfect outfit for a Monday and oh so comfy!
Happy Monday! ❤
