So I’m in a bit of a style funk. Maybe that’s not entirely true — I don’t hate my wardrobe, my clothes are all fitting well — it’s just that I’m not feeling all that excited to get dressed in the morning. Wow, that just made me sound like an ad for seasonal depression. Not the case. It’s more — Inspiration! That’s what it is, I’m lacking some inspiration! You understand.
Here are some things I’ve been wearing lately:
Not horrible, but I clearly haven’t deviated too far from the 30 Days of Denim uniform of pants, shirt, cardigan. And since it’s been five months I am wishing I had made a bit more progress. (Remember, I’m all about Progress this year!) I haven’t really tried anything too exciting and new except for this cropped collarless jacket from Gap, and tights with a dress (watch out, I’m gettin’ crazy!)
But both were fun! And I miss the feeling of being experimental with clothes. I think what I’m telling you is that I’m gettin’ lazy on the style front, friends and I need a little fun, fashion injection!
No big deal though, because I found a solution. Remember the other day when I mentioned those 5 Real Life Style Blogs You Should Be Reading? Well Kayla from Freckles in April is hosting a 10 Day Wardrobe Challenge that starts on January 23, and I’m going to participate.
Are you interested in giving yourself a little zap of style inspiration? Well I’m here to convince you that you should play a long with me. I’m fun to play with, I promise!
Some Things to Consider:
*It’s only 10 days — no need to spend tons of time doing this, it’s a quick 2 week refresher to keep you inspired.
*Kayla is doing all the work by picking prompts, all you have to do is let them inspire you to get dressed. You’re already going to do that anyway, right?
*With many people participating there will be tons of inspiration for the future
*It’s just for fun! DON’T YOU LIKE FUN? WHAT KIND OF PERSON DOESN’T LIKE FUN?
As most of you know, I’m not super fashionable and don’t desire to be a big, fancy style blogger who looks super chic all the time. Sorry, I like my sweat pants from Costco a little too much. But I found when I did my own style project last year that it felt good to spend a few extra minutes thinking about what I was going to wear. Positive Self Care is where it’s at, so if you are looking for a fun, social, internet-y way to get back to caring about what you wear, or want to experimnt with your own style for a couple of weeks, you should join me.
What do you think? Wanna play along?
