Though our trees are still green and our clouds are mostly grey.
Do you sometimes look at your closet and go, " I have nothing to wear, maybe I need to go shopping" and said closet is stuffed full with clothes?
It is the same routine almost everyday, even times when I am so organized that I pick out my clothes for the week on Sunday. After trying out several outfits and wasting my time, I end up wearing my trusty black jeans with a tee.
Quick fact: Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg, Barack Obama wore the same outfit everyday to cut out that time and energy that it will take to make that decision.
Over the summer, I read about wardrobe capsule and I wanted to try it. October is the month for the fall capsule and I thought by then, I would have organized my wardrobe, but that hasn't happened. I am not giving up, this is still the beginning of October and the capsule is for 3 months.
To start off and push myself in that direction I started #TheClosetChallenge yesterday with my own modifications.
The closet challenge is picking out 7 items of clothing from your closet and wearing them for 30 days.
The motto and prayer for the challenge: Jesus, help me to simplify my life by learning what you want me to be and becoming that person - St. Therese of Lisieux.
For me, instead of 30 days, I will do the challenge for 15 days. This will give me enough time to sort out my clothes for my wardrobe capsule.
Apart from the motto and prayer for the challenge, I also love the idea behind the challenge because it will not only make you creative with your 7 items, it is also a lesson on living with less and being grateful for what you have.
For my seven items I chose
1 graphic tee
2 pairs of pants- 1 jeans, 1 fitted trousers
Pictures coming up soon
