A few weeks ago, the talented lady at Grainline Studio wrote about her autumn wardrobe ambitions. She mentioned in her post a remix challenge initiated by Kendi Everyday. It is pretty simple, you take 30 items and you make 30 outfits.
If you actually look in the Grailine Studio's comment section of that post you will see this:
What I wrote is totally true. I certainly don't fit in my maternity clothes and since I totally embrace my new curves (hello! I have a butt and when you look at my chest you don't confuse me with a 10 year old boy!) most of my pre-baby tops and bottoms are too small.
I will be honest, ever since I gave birth, I don't put much effort into creating cute outfits everyday. Some mothers have challenging mornings but I don't so I have no excuse to neglect my "style". At first, I believed that the 30 for 30 Remix challenge was completely silly. Why make my life complicated when I can just wear the same pair of jean for 2, 3, 4 (you get the concept) days...there might be a bit of baby poop and breast milk on them but this is why dark denim is so awesome!
I opened my closet and remembered that I use to have fun at that dressing up thing. It is so easy to forget about ourself and focus solely on our kids. However, taking some time to "cutify" myself could have a positive impact of my attitude. So I decided to give this challenge a try.
Yes, I admit, I made an Excel spread sheet with the contents of my closet. It is not that bad but I still need to go on a little shopping spree to get a few basic things (8 new items / 30).
This should be a fun exercise, right?
Do you take the time to "cutify" yourself or do you simply embrace the "yoga" clothing lifestyle on a daily basis...not that there is anything wrong with yoga attire?
And don't forget my little giveaway!
