I guess I thought I would try this new "throw it together" approach. Always the planner, I should have realized this wouldn't work for me. Regardless, I'm still happy I gave it a try as that is what life is all about right?
I also chose to throw in a few pieces that I rarely wear, which is something I want to change. I have an over abundance of clothes to the point where I will go sometimes a year without wearing something. That is ridiculous. Ridiculous to the point where if I don't think about it enough to wear for a year... I need to start really asking myself if I need it to be taking up space in my closet.
I'm happy I pushed myself to add items I normally wouldn't pick. I've had these pants for years now, wear them every so often, and then back they go in my closet for months. I added them to my remix to see how I could change up the way I styled them. And you know what? I finally came to the realization that they just don't work for me. Off they go to find a better home and a little bit more breathing space is made in my closet...
Now, don't get me wrong, cleaning out my closet isn't the only reason I remix in the 30x30, it's just a perk. For me, joing the 30x30 has always been about pushing myself to create more outfits. I'll be honest - I think I stink at remixing. I tend to pair certain things together all the time and never seem to stray too far from that. The 30x30 remix helps me hone my remixing bone. I may not be the best at it yet, but I'm getting there, slowly but surely.
Finally, I'll just say that this 30x30 was especially hard for me. Between the suuuuuuuper long and very snowy winter and feeling and being sick through a lot of it, I'm honestly quite proud of myself for sticking it out and making it through. Go me. :)
Oh, did I say thirty? I apparently meant 29 because I skipped over day #9 without even realizing it until now! Please forgive me! I'm not good at math. :)
