- When purchasing future items of clothing, I will try and think of three ways that I can wear the new item before deciding to buy it. I have too many one-trick ponies in my closet, which is no way for an aspiring minimalist to live.
- Related to that first point: I am drawn to garish colors, crazy patterns, and funky cuts. After viewing my photos these last few weeks, I realize these pieces are interesting, but not necessarily flattering. I should aim to own basic, classic items that work for my body and my lifestyle, and then punch up the personality with accessories (scarves, jewelry, belts, headbands, etc.).
- Tucking in a shirt does wonders for presentation and professionalism. Wonders!
- It is impossible to predict the kinds of clothing one should wear in November, in Texas. This month, the temperatures have ranged from a humid 85, to a stormy 53, to a bone-chillingly cold 29. And all in one week! Which has made dressing myself from a limited section of my closet very difficult indeed.
I will probably be the last person to stumble across the 30 for 30 finish line, as I don't really get dressed on the weekends and have skipped a few days here and there. But I will finish. And so, here are the last three days worth of outfits. Enjoy, and I hope you've learned something from this experience as well!
An easy weekend outfit. This is my first true remix outfit, as I've worn all of these items for the challenge already.
Oh, hey! Another remixed outfit! I had a little trouble with the skirt, which folds over, and the slip I had to wear with the skirt. They bunched up around my middle and it wasn't exactly flattering. Luckily, cowboy boots make everything better.
This is today's outfit. I got this skirt at Buffalo Exchange in Houston a few years ago and I love it, even though I don't wear it very often. I had a hard time finding a shirt that went with it, especially from my narrow choices. This was the best I could come up with and I kind of like it. Also, when this photo was being taken I was hating the challenge and wanting to quit, so I don't exactly look pleased to be standing in the cold with no coat. Sorry about that.
