Walking Through My Wardrobe

Yesterday, I drove home from Iowa. It took me like 8 hours and 9 fruit smiley packs to make it back to Indianapolis. I had a lot of time to think. I got to thinking about all the small things in my life that I take for granted every single day. One of the major things I take for granted: my closet. Actually it’s more of a clothing rack, but you know what I mean. I have so many clothes yet I constantly stare at it and come to the conclusion that I have nothing to wear. This is stupid.

Therefore, I am going to take a “challenge” to help myself better appreciate my wardrobe and YOU LUCKY PEOPLE get to witness it.

A couple of months ago when I was in Australia one of my friends dedicated a blog to her 30-day adventure of different outfits. I thought it was bloody awesome.

I’ve never been the type of person to care much about fashion. I barely know what “fashion” is. I can’t make it through VOGUE because I can’t pronounce half the designers and I still struggle with what “couture” actually is. I’m no fashionista. I have little to no sense of style. So let me just preface this by saying that I just wear what I like and don’t put much other thought into it.

BUT-

This past summer I lived with my friend Caitie who has the best style I’ve ever seen then I immediately traveled to Australia the land of supermodels that wear whatever they want to wear and don’t care what people think. My personal style changed a lot during the past year.

I need to stop shopping and appreciate the clothing that I have.

Therefore, I’m going to attempt to make 30 different outfits without buying new things.

Wish me luck and I can’t promise that these outfits will be great but hey- at least I don’t wear sweatpants everyday anymore.

Here is the outfit I wore today (3/11):

P.s. Sorry if you’re friends with me on instagram and already saw that jacket. whatever, I like it.

P.s.s. Ignore the fact that this is in the Target spices aisle. My mom needed barley or something and one thing lead to another.
