ultimate wardrobe challege // month 1 recap

One month down on my wardrobe challenge. Phew! Turns out the hardest part is not repeating outfits. Or at least… not repeating outfits and still making them semi picture-worthy.

Also, with all the layering I do in winter, I don’t have as much clothing as I thought I did. I’ve worn nearly every winter item I own. I’ve definitely worn every pair of shoes and jeans. Hurry, spring!

Here’s the January re-cap!

HA! Little pictures are so cute.

My favorite outfits were days:

  • 3 {My most favorite of the uber-casual weekend outfits.}
  • 6 {I love that maroon waistcoat. I think I paid $4 for it on clearance and I dig the layering options of it.}
  • 12 {the yellow and gray combo is fun and trendy and I love that silly scarf I made.}
  • 19 {I thought that shirt would be too short to wear to work but I have this amazing ability to frump up everything I wear… ha. I threw it on as an homage to Brittany Murphy.}
  • 25 {gauchos and boots combo was a new experiment for me.}

So far so good on not purchasing anything new, but I am still keeping a tally of the approved purchases which I will add up at the end. I also have a list of projects upcycling some stuff I’ve already got, but my homework and housekeeping is keeping me too busy to get started on it! I need a day off from work to play with crafty stuff!

Goals for February:

  • Make a little more effort on the weekends. I dress pretty boring on lazy Sundays.
  • Get the too-long pants and jeans I’ve got hemmed so I have more to wear.
  • On the crafty-horizon: making arm warmers and string a few necklaces {need something white/clear/sparkly}. Also, I’m going to make something wearable that’s Valentine’s Day-themed.

How’s everyone else doing on their goals for the year? How about those of you who are trying to do this along with me? Let me know how it’s going!

  1. Hey Kellie!

    You have really showed a lot of creativity with your layering options! I know it didn’t make your favorites list, but I still love the outfit with the houndstooth skirt and the orange sweater. I wish I could say that I was faithful to the challenged, but I gave in to temptation when I was in Louisiana with my family. After that shopping binge,I may need to attend SA (shoppers anonymous)! But February is a new months, and I intend to stick to the challenge!

    1. Thanks, Steph! I like that outfit, too. 🙂 That skirt’s one of my favorite thrift store scores!

      Better luck for this month- you can do it!

      I hope LA was great- see ya at Fondue night!!!
