my summer wardrobe challenge – project 333

I love clothes and I love feeling good in my clothes and I have found that as I have reduced my wardrobe and really focused on what makes me feel good I have loved getting dressed in the morning even more. I have done a few 10×10 challenges in the past year, pairing down my…

spring wardrobe switchover

As March began I really began to have a massive itch to change up my wardrobe. There was still snow on the ground but the combination of getting a little bit tired of my winter clothing and getting a few new spring and summer pieces from the thrift store I was really ready to make…

my winter 10×10 challenge

The sun is shining right now as I write this and I am daydreaming of spring and pulling out my warm weather clothes out from under the bed, but before that happens we have a few more months of winter. To celebrate these clothes that I still have right now and try out some new…

fall 10×10 challenge

Back in June I experimented for the first time with a 10×10 challenge, aka, only wearing 10 different items of clothing for 10 straight days. Now this challenge went quite well and it changed me to find new ways to wear the clothes that I did have. You can check out that full blog post…

fall wardrobe switchover

September 1. I am fully ready for fall and with the cooler weather in the final few weeks of August so was my wardrobe. I was getting super excited to switch over my wardrobe into more cozy and warmer items so as soon as that calendar changed to September I was ready for the challenge….

an introduction to capsule wardrobes

103. That is the number of clothes that I own, that doesn’t even include workout gear, lounge wear, pajamas, and underwear. (I even counted my 18 pairs of shoes separately from this list). Now I don’t know about you, but that seems like a crazy amount of clothing items, especially since I only have one…

giving away sentimental items

My next (and hopefully last) big move is coming up in just a few days. Tomorrow most of my belongings will be in a big metal box headed off and I have spent the past few days packing. Now packing is not one of my favourite things to do, but I do love getting to…

thrifting

I love going to thrift stores A LOT. There are a lot of reasons why this is and that is what I am going to be talking about today as well as some of my favourite thrift store purchases over the past few months. I grew up going to thrift stores all the time. My…
