WIA catch up...

Friday, September 02, 2011

Hello! I have to confess that I've missed a few days in my challenge, I've grabbed the first thing to hand in the morning - a hectic workload is the culprit. Note to self - must give up work.

Day 29
I had to grab a pair of trousers from the mend pile. I have been so unorganised with washing, ironing and any sort of outfit planning (which is now required due to my clothing options getting smaller by the day). Anyway no one appeared to notice the split in the seam by my ankle. I'm not sure I'll keep these, they're just a bit... awkward.

Day 30
Love this skirt and the t-shirt is a wardrobe staple so both are staying.

Day 31 - Lunch with Mother
The maxi dress was dragged from the mend pile too but the cardigan covered the hole! I often dismiss this cardigan but I'll be keeping it with a promise to wear it more.

Day 32 - What was I thinking?
I hate this outfit. The dress is about four inches shorter than when I first bought it. It has shrunk even though I followed the washing instructions. I've only worn it a few times #fail. The cardigan has magical shrinking sleeves that get shorter throughout the day and it bobbles like you would not believe. Bin and bin.

Day 33 - A surprising combo
Given the choice I wouldn't normally put these two items together but I think it works. I love this skirt, it's a great length and has plenty of room without being billowy. I especially like the studs on the waistband and the pockets. Keep x 2.

Day 34 - A dramatic change in the weather...
In stark contrast to yesterday I am wearing a long sleeve t-shirt, long cardigan and a scarf. Typical August weather! I like this outfit - it's very 'me'. You may notice that I am wearing jeans? I have worn all of my jeans, trousers, skirts and shorts so I can now 're-wear' them for my challenge - I mean I can't wander around in my pants!

So we're up to date, almost... if only work didn't take up so much time *sigh*.

What are you up to this weekend? Any exciting plans? I think I will turn my hand to tiling...

  1. I hate when dresses shrink! Especially because I don't like wearing too long or too short skirts/dresses, and I'm short so it takes me ages to find the just right length. And then they shrink! aagh! But I like all your other outfits, you look amazing, like you're really enjoying yourself :)

  2. You're doing really well with this challenge - is the rule that you can only wear eveyrthing once?

  3. @dinoprincesschar That's right, I am wearing everything before in my wardrobe before I can wear something again. I can't tell you how nice it is to have the option of jeans back! Oh how I have missed them!

  4. @Filipa I really hate it when anything shrinks or becomes misshapen, I want it to stay the same shape/size as when I purchased it! Woollens that bobble too... grrr!

  5. I love all your outfits. I am forever shrinking things in the wash. it seems clothes are made so poorly they're almost not meant to last anymore.
    outfit 30 is my favourite, just adore that skirt x

  6. Great outfits and I have that grey military style cardigan too! My weekend has been spent cleaning, sorting out things for a car boot and reading on my kindle! xx
