There were definitely some lessons learned. Like for example, you need to have some kind of idea of the events that you have planned for the 30 days because lets say you have something really physical like horseback riding scheduled, which I did, you really need to plan for that.
Anyway, I was motivated to take on the original 10 for 30 Challenge after reading this NY Times article about the web challenge called Six Items or Less, which basically had people commit to wearing only 6 clothing items that they already owned for 30 days.
While I knew that 6 items was not doable for me, 10 items seemed workable. The challenge is pretty straight forward,
you take 10 items and rock and remix them for 30 days.
I decided to do this again because as challenging as it was at times, it was also kinda cool to get creative and make those 10 pieces work. And I have a lot of clothes....let me say that again, A LOT of clothes, especially a bunch of new ones and amazingly only 1 piece that I selected for the challenge is new.
The challenge starts TOMORROW April 15th and runs thru May 15th. I am posting this much later than I wanted to, so as much as I seriously would love to have some company in this madness fun. ;), I realize it's a bit late.
BUT I am planning to do it again, most likely in July and will have it posted in advance. Until then, I hope you will come back and check out how I rock my 10 items for the next 30 days.
Coming tomorrow: Day 1 Look + a breakdown of my 10 items and the rules of the challenge.
This dress is just so easy to wear and the stripes, well I don't think I need to say much, other than they are perfect. The first time I wore this dress, we were in the heart of Chiberia, so I layered it over leggings but this time, since we had a 60 degree day, it was just the dress and a pair of flats.
