I’m joining Jo from iCurvy this month and taking her 30 items for 30 days shop what you’ve got challenge. You’d think this would be an easy challenge for me. If you’ve read my blog, you will notice I reuse and recycle my clothes all the time. To stay in my wardrobe, my clothes have to work hard. No arguments. But narrowing it down to 30 items, including shoes eeep, was difficult. Apparently a minimalist I am not. I try, but I love stuff, especially clothes stuff.

At first I considered my usual capsule wardrobe method that I use when packing my suitcase for any length of time. Black and white with denim accents and maybe a pop of colour. But this wouldn’t work because this is the summer of colour, right? Shoooooot. So I am now challenged to put together a mix and match 30 items list that incorporates colour more often than not. And then I went and procrastinated for three weeks and find myself here, on the very last day making my final choices.

My thirty items are;

1. Grey Tank
2. Mad Sounds Colour Block Blouse
3. Boyfriend White T-Shirt
4. Old Navy Stripe Shirt
5. Surprise Me Open Back Top
6. Black Anchor T-Shirt
7. Grey Trés Cool Shirt
8. Long line Black Tee
9. Pink Boyfriend Tee

10. Old Flame Denim Skirt
11. Stripe Bodycon Skirt
12. Boyfriend Jeans
13. Analogue Print Skirt
14. Printed Slouch Pants
15. Black Maxi Skirt

16. Stellar Wrap Dress
17. Analogue Print Dress
18. Stripe Bodycon Dress
19. Neon Green T-Shirt Dress
20. Denim Overall Dress
21. White Textured Mini Dress

22. Blue & Gold Kimono Jacket
23. Chambray Shirt
24. Printed Chambray Vest

25. Black Ankle Strap Wedges
26. Nude Ankle Strap Wedges
27. Coral Ankle Strap Wedges
28. Black Sandals
29. Hot Pink Slides
30. White Sneakers

My disclaimers:

As you know I am often sent items for review on the blog. Timeframes for releases, etc. won’t allow for me to sit on these items for a month while I complete the challenge. I’m making all items received for editorial review exempt when being worn for the purpose of blog post images. And if I happen to go to dinner after, well lucky me. Haha. Mel will be providing me with an outfit to wear to accompany her to a party later this month. It’ll be on loan, so that won’t count. 

Regarding my work wardrobe, I have also selected a black dress, black skirt and black pencil skirt that I will wear for work purposes only that are exempt from the list. I’m calling this my uniform; all other items will be taken from my 30 items. My work and personal styles are SO different (due to dress standards) that I think this is the only way I can make this work.

And that’s everything. Here we go folks. 30 days of only 30 items. Want to join the team? Click the button below and head over to Jo’s blog for the link party. Stay in touch with the posts for some styling inspiration. Or maybe it will be lots of same old, same old outfits… We’ll see.
