My Style Challenge


I set myself this challenge about 18 months ago and it has been the beginning of my little venture…

On the 31 January 2011, I decided that I wanted to be more creative. A bit late for a New Years resolution, but I guess it’s better late than never. So, I decided to set myself this ‘Style Challenge’.

The Rules:

👗 Wear a different outfit every day (weekends were optional as they are pyjama days!) 
🙅 No shopping allowed!

I’ve managed pretty well so far, it’s been 297 days and I’ve not bought a single item of clothing! However, wearing a different outfit is beginning to get a lot harder, but I will see how much longer I can keep it up.

What I found:

  1. Black leggings were an absolute life-saver!
  2. Having good shoes made any of my outfits look great
  3. I definitely started appreciating my clothes a lot more

Lastly, and possibly, the most important note of all – It’s amazing how many impulsive buys I’ve made over the years which I’ve forgotten about and adding up how much money I’ve wasted on these purchases is a little scary! Moving forward I aim to be more selective with my shopping and choose pieces that are timeless.
