And so it goes on...

Thursday, October 17, 2013

Hello! Just a quick update on my 3 for 33 challenge. These are just some of the outfits I've worn so far but I'm over half way now, just 13 days remain.

I've keeping it really simple, just adding a scarf for example.

Left: Scarf, H&M  |  Boots, ASOS
Right: Scarf, H&M via carboot  |  Long sleeve t-shirt, Muji  |  Bag, Custard Designs  |  Boots, New Look

I find this the easiest way to instantly create a different look for an outfit... and the fact that I have a ridiculous amount of scarves means I can just keep doing this over and over...

Or I just pop on a cardigan...

Right: Cardigan, M&S via charity shop (one of my latest charity shop finds)

I find it's the simpler outfits that I like the best. Working from home means it's easy for me to put up with an outfit that I don't like - I just avoid mirrors - but if I was out in public I think some of the outfits I've worn wouldn't pass muster (above right for example... boring! I was just keen to wear my new-to-me cardigan).


Or I add a necklace. So easy.

Necklace, Dorothy Perkins (I think)  |  Boots Dorothy Perkins

The weather seems to be shifting between warm enough for bare legs and cold enough for tights, which means my outfits look different but it would be nice if it could make up it's mind now. I'd like to put my summer clothes into hibernation and get into the swing of winter woolies and boots.

Things have been busy again, with no end in sight really but I do plan to take the weekend off to relax and catch up on some much needed housework! I also need to get a few runs in before next Thursday as I've entered a triathlon. Now, this isn't as drastic as it sounds - it's a charity fundraiser and I will be part of a team of three. My role will be to sprint 800m, which just the thinking about it brings me out in a cold sweat! I just don't want to come last. Or fall over.

    1. I'm enjoying the challenge, but I think I'm going to run out if options and gave to repeat a few outfits, but never mind.
      It doesn't take much persuading to make me put my feet up :-)

  4. Love your outfits and definitely feeling inspired to try and wear my scarves more often. I have loads but seem to go through stages of wearing them. I especially love the blue dress, such a lovely colour on you.
