The 30 for 30 Closet Remix is steadily helping me gain some insight on myself and my closet. I honestly think it is helping me tread new ground and open my mind up to the fact that I don't need a closet bursting at the seams in order to be happy and fashionable. Check out some other thoughts/ideas/reflections I had on this past third week of the remix...
That's a toughie! I actually really liked every outfit I put together this week. I think I will go with Day 13 because I wore one of my favorite shirts - the gingham black and white button up. This shirt is so easy to mix in with nearly anything in my closet. I think I hold a special place for it because I'm normally not very good at remixing but this is one piece I have constantly mixed into different outfits. It's my first born remix piece, if you will. :)
DID I MISS MY CLOSET?
OK, I admit it... I had a few instances this week where I wished I could open my closet up for business again. I think I only felt this way because I had a few look specific ideas in my head but then had to remind myself I couldn't work with certain items. It does kind of stink when you have a really good outfit idea that you can't put together because a certain piece isn't in your 30 pieces. I will say, however, that I quickly snapped out of it and saved away the outfit idea for an After-30x30 day. See, the remix is even helping me plan outfits for when the remix is done!
THINGS I NOTICED
Number one important lesson for me this week: You can wear a piece of clothing twice in the same week and not die. (The piece of clothing in question being the tan vest.) Seriously, I have issues with this. I cannot tell you the last time I wore a piece of clothing within the same week. Now, this is just a baby step considering I wore the vest the first day to work and the second day on a day when I didn't have to work. I will consider myself completely cured of the One Day A Week Disease when I wear the same piece twice within a work week.
Oh! And apparently when in doubt just add a belt! I wore every single look this week with a different belt. I clearly have a bit of a belt obsession lately.
WHAT I LIKED
This week I enjoyed building more layered looks. I tried to use a couple different 30x30 pieces within each outfit so as to change it up a bit. A lot of these items are things I probably would have never layered together so I'm definately becoming more accostomed to shopping my closet and trying new things!
