I’m starting a 30×30 Challenge for the month of July. What is this challenge, you ask? Basically, I’ve selected 30 pieces from my closet (clothing and shoes) and will only rotate these 30 pieces for the next 30 days. Also, I will refrain from shopping for the next 30 days (yikes.) You might have seen this challenge before on Kendi Everyday, and you can also see the contributors of Within Color participating in this challenge this month as well.
What possessed me to do something this insane?
One, this is the part of the summer where I get stuck in a style rut. I’ve worn all of my new summer pieces to death, and I don’t really think it’s all that practical to acquire any new summer pieces this late in the season considering my closet is overflowing. I start thinking about fall really early since a great fall/winter wardrobe is a lot more expensive than a warm weather wardrobe. Also, I just graduated from college and now I’m focusing on building a wardrobe appropriate for the office. I definitely need funds for that, so hopefully my 30 day shopping ban will help with this.
I’m definitely going to have to get creative and think outside of the box for this, but I’m so up for the challenge! Stay tuned to see what outfit combinations I end up coming up with.
