FASHION | 30x30 2017 - Days 1 - 6

Wednesday, October 11, 2017

Doing this 30x30 challenge makes me feel very organised. I have all my clothes in the front of my wardrobe with the longer items on the back of my door. It allows me to quickly pick what I'm going to wear and I've gone back to picking out the next days clothes before I go to bed. 

Days One to Six are often the easiest, it's all brand new and everything is clean and it doesn't matter what I wear as it ticks the items off the list. 

I've worn a few items a couple of times but it's been mainly the shoes and bomber jacket and sadly not every photo captures every item but I've tried to take video clips every day. I don't have one for day 2 as I deleted it by accident but this is a staple outfit so I will be wearing it again soon. 

So far I've also done quite well remembering to put my clothes in the wash so I'm not in danger of everything being dirty come week 3! 

I also need to apologise for the picture quality. I dug out an old point and shoot camera that could live in my bag and I'd have everything on one memory card but sadly it;s quality is shocking and I think I've killed the camera. Let's say a full bottle of water, my handbag, lots of ruined things, tears, the realisation I can't fix it. Worse things happen at sea. 

I also need to find a better place to take pictures. As the lighting at work is atrocious, but I can't think of any other full-length mirrors I've got daily access to, so you might have to put up with them. 


Day 1
  • Floral Yours Shirt Dress 
  • Black Encuentro Vest 
  • Matalan Leggins 
  • ECCO Boots
Day 2
  • H&M+ Stripped top 
  • Grey Bomber 
  • H&M Black pants 
  • Primark Flats 
  • ECCO Boots 
Two pairs of shoes as the flats live at work and I changed into them halfway through the day. This may be a theme of this challenge, I will only count both if I feel like I wore them for equal amounts of time. 

Day 3
  • Primark Black peplum top 
  • Black Encuentro Vest 
  • Grey Bomber 
  • H&M Black pants 
  • ECCO Boots 


Day 4
  • Big Lebowski Shirt Dress 
  • Grey Bomber 
  • Matalan Leggins 
  • ECCO Boots
Day 5
  • Black top with lace shoulders 
  • Burgandy bomber 
  • B&W Square-spot 
  • Primark Flats 
  • ECCO Boots
Day 6
  • H&M Jumper 
  • H&M Cat top 
  • Sainsburys floral jeans 
  • Primark Flats 
  • ECCO Boots 
I've had a really good first 6 days, I'm looking forward to the rest of the month. 

I have also decided to try and do this again in November, I am away at the end of the month, so I will just do it for the days while I'm here. 

Ideally, I'd like to do this for a full year next year or for as much of the year as I can manage. I have a plan which I've put in place for November already. I know, I know. You can tell I'm excited by this idea. I've picked out around 15 items for November and put them in a box in my wardrobe so I know where they are. (remind me!) Then I just need to decide on the last few things later in the month. 

My plan for the coming year will be to try and sort things out in the same way, as I take the things out of the box I will refill it with some things for the following month. This also allows me to free up hanging space. 

As the months go on I hope this will allow me to work through some clothes that I tend not to wear and I might try and mix it up and do things like a full month of dresses or only one colour. That might be over complicating it but there are things I can play with. 

I can tell from my first week (I'm doing this 6 outfits at a time to make it easier for photo collages) I will need to get rid of some of these items soon. A few of the tops are feeling a bit bobbly but I love them so they might have to be thrown away sooner rather than later.
