Challenge 4-4-4 Week 3Friday, October 17, 2014
In my last update post I wondered about continuing for another four weeks. I think I will. I'll swap a few pieces though, the pink maxi skirt seems unseasonable and the short sleeve top didn't work as well as I thought it would. I'll need to consider the colder weather that's on the way too.
Could this be the start of a rolling wardrobe?
My photo an hour day and the first appearance of my chambray dress. Although it's not much of an outfit shot, it is a cute pic of a cat. And as it's my favourite way to wear this dress, you can see it worn here & here (both for challenges I might add).
Sunday was a lazy day, perfect for a jumper dress and a scarf. I counted my scarf collection. I have 26 in total, which seems a ridiculous amount to own, and I put a large number in a charity bag earlier in the year.
At the beginning of this challenge I discarded two dresses from my chosen items and on Wednesday I replaced one of them with this long turquoise cardy. I love my short green one but I am getting a teensy bit sick of it.
Thursday and Friday
Two quiet days with nothing much to write about, except to say it turned out to be too hot on Friday for a jacket (not complaining).
Incidentally, I came across this video on YouTube recently - this lady has just eight dresses in her wardrobe. Eight dresses, three jumpers and one jacket. One pair of ballet flats and one pair of boots. That's it. I think I have more than that currently sitting in my linen bin. But I have to admit I like the idea of getting dressed very quickly every morning, safe in the knowledge that my clothes look good, work together and are flattering.
Have a great weekend, the forecast is a warm one!
