I'm really excited about the 30x30 Challenge, which is starting tomorrow! For those of you who have never heard of a 30x30, it's when you take 30 items of clothing and shoes and use only those 30 to mix and match your outfits for 30 days. Mathematically, that's far more than enough clothes to make only 30 outfits, but it's a little more difficult than that in real life. Notice I didn't mention jewelry and accessories. That's because those don't count in the 30; you can add on as many accessories as your heart desires!
A few noteworthy items about my set of 30:
1 : I purposely included several items I rarely wear and don't particularly like (the white ruffle blouse, the green tunic, the brown skirt, and the tribal print skirt) so that hopefully I'll be forced to find some good ways to wear them.
2 : I already mix and match my clothes quite a lot, although I don't have a relatively large wardrobe, and I'm always trying to find new ways to wear my favorite clothes, so I'm setting a goal that makes sense for me: 20 of my 30 outfits should be a combination I have never worn before.
3 : My black heels are not here!!!
4 : I'm not going to do any clothes (or shoes or accessories) shopping during the 30x30. That's an optional rule for anyone taking the 30x30 challenge.
