#30daywardrobechallenge September 2014

2014-06-27 14.39.33

Another year, another wardrobe challenge. I did this in Spring 2014 and started it again last September before failing miserably. So, I am challenging myself again for this September, and giving myself some lead in time too.

I think September is a good month for this challenge. Hopefully, it will still be reasonably warm so therefore you essentially have both your summer and winter wardrobe to choose from – I’m doing the challenge in a matter of sorts at the moment trying to find things to wear to work that deal with the hot but also quite wet weather we’ve been having at the moment. As ever, a cardigan is every woman’s best friend, especially in the office when the air-con just can’t decide whether to blast arctic freeze or saharan heat each afternoon (these short sleeved George cardigans might do just the trick?). Anyway, come September, hopefully the weather will have abandoned the usual summer chaos and settled down into something more helpful for this challenge.

The rules are thus:

  • wear a new outfit from your existing wardrobe every day for 30 days
  • record the results on either your blog, twitter or instagram and use the hashtag #30daywardrobechallenge (let me know if you’re joining in and I will do a link round up)
  • try and list what you are wearing and where it came from
  • you can re-wear individual pieces but not whole outfits
  • shoes don’t count (I don’t have 30 pairs of in commission weather appropriate shoes)
  • coats don’t count (and you don’t need to mention them in your round up unless they are part of the outfit. ditto jewellery)

I will be recording my outfits on instagram and posting a weekly round up here.

Roll on September!

    I’m game! I’ve been wanting to make more of an effort and blog about it so this might be the trick to keep me from relapsing into wearing almost the same thing all week!

    Oh I’m hardly ever without a cardigan (I really feel the cold easily, even in summer). Just call me ‘cardigan woman!’ Good luck with the outfit challenge x

    I don’t think I actually have 30 Autumn / Winter outfits! I hate to get rid of loads of clothes that were too big after giving birth to Tiger 18 months ago and really need to go shopping! x

    I love this idea! I noticed today that in my new job (I think I’ve been there nearly three months) I’ve not once worn the same outfit twice and was stupidly proud. It’ll be a totally different kettle of fish in the winter though… need more jumpers! x

    sometimes i get so tempted to wear the same thing over and over. i got a new dress recently and it’s sooo comfortable that it’s all i want to wear.

    Oh wow I really love the idea of this wardrobe challenge – going to have a good look at mine and see if there is anyway I could actually do it (it seems like years since I have bought anything newish)
    Can’t wait to see what you come up with

    Ooh this sounds like a fun challenge, I might take part as it will save me wearing the same old stuff every day and get me to dig deep into the wardrobe x

    I love this, I did it once before and succeeded but for some reason I didn’t seen to save any money (must have spent it on food instead!) x

    Ooh I’m tempted to join in! It would be a good way to keep thinking of new outfit combinations. But I think September is such a tricky month – I’m always a bit ‘argh what do I wear now that it’s getting colder?!’ that month!
