My wardrobe challenge week
Last week I documented my outfit all 7 days and shared it on my Instagram stories as a part of a challenge I had put up for myself. I have mentioned earlier that I am getting a bit tired of wearing the same clothes all the time, so in a moment of extra energy I went through my closet and dug out several garments that I hadn’t worn in long time.
Here is my selection:
The idea was to only select clothes out of that pile, so that:
A: I wouldn’t have to stare into my closet like it’s an open sea as I usually do these days. Tiredness does not bring out creativity or decisiveness.
B: I would start to use more of my clothes, not only the same three soft sweaters and that one pair of black comfy pants that I wear until they smell (sorry for being gross) and then wash immediately
C: Maybe I would start to feel more like myself again, not only the mom cave version of myself?
D: I can pretend that I have new outfits, because I don’t have any money to go shopping at the moment. (I get paid so little on my parental leave that it doesn’t even cover my half of the regular expenses) – But good thing I have shopped a bit in the past, so that I can go #shoppinginmyowncloset
E: I maybe could do some good environmental-wise by trying to inspire my followers to do the same instead of shopping new clothes they don’t need
So, here is my week of #whatsinmywardrobechallenge:
(Sweather & skirt: H&M, Shirt: Mango)
(T-shirt: Unknown, Pants: Weekday)
(Shirt: 2nd hand Mads Nørgaard, Skirt: H&M)
(Sweather: H&M, Blouse: Monki, Jeans: Tiger of Sweden)
(Sweather: H&M, Top: Envii, Pants: Weekday)
(Blouse: Vintage, Pants: Weekday)
(Shirt: Urban Outfitters, Sweather: Weekday, Skirt: 2nd hand)
Conclusion: I really liked the challenge! It felt good putting in a little bit of extra effort, and some of the days I felt extra nice – which always is a good thing. The results were nothing overly fancy – I wouldn’t get stopped by a street fashion photographer or anything – but a few steps up from my current state of (fashion) mind. And it was really nice only having a small selection of clothes to pick from in the morning, when I am often too tired and grumpy to focus on anything else than coffee and food (and a ton of kids). I also have enough clothes left for at least another week, so I think I will just keep it in it’s own shelf for suitable days. Because on day 8 I had a wonderful detox: I only wore my favorite grey sweatpants and my softest t-shirt and stayed in all day. Haha.
