Fashion | 30x30 November Introduction

Friday, November 10, 2017

I'm sure you're all getting bored of this 30x30 concept but I've loved doing it throughout October and I had the idea to try and do it for all of 2018 (excluding holiday and when I just don't want to) 

Rather than waiting until January, I'm going to carry on from November. I don't think I'll be doing weekly updates but I do want to do an introductory post as I did in October. I think there will be a couple of tweaks to this line up as between taking pictures and writing the post I've changed my mind and if you count there are only 28 items in these pictures. 

I have also carried over a couple of items from the previous month. I did think about carrying more items over but I own a lot of clothes and it was time to swap things out. 

The one thing I have changed is to exclude shoes. I decided it was better to work through my clothes. 

November will be a short month for me as I'm going away at the end of the month and I'm not counting any of these items for my Holiday. 

1. Green Top - Primark
2. Grey Top - Primark
3.Grey Lined Top - ASDA?
3.Red Floral top - Yours
4. Blue Top - Tesco
5. Green Jumper - M&S

11. Purple Dress - ASDA
12. Pink & Black Dress - ASDA
 13. Navy Cold Shoulder Dress - ?
14. Floral Swing Dress - Simply Be
15. Striped Dress - Next
16. Leggins - M&S
17. Black Pants - H&M
18. Black Pants - Next
19. B&W Print Pants - Tesco
20. Dark Blue Jeans - Sainsbury's
21. Light Blue Jeans - Evans

22. Green Print Pants - Next
23. Blue / Brown Print Pants - Next
24. Black Tshirt - Pep & Co
25. Autumn Print Vest - Encuentro
26. Black Button Vest - Pep & Co

28. Black Vest - Encuentro

29. Black Knitted Bomber  - H&M
30. Red Dress - NL

31. Black top shoulder - Pep & Co
32. Black Leggins - Matalan

I find doing this helps me get dressed quicker. I'm finding out what clothes I like and don't like wearing. I should have mentioned in my last post how I felt about the items I've picked. If I've decided to pass on any of those items or if I'm keeping everything!

I've not had a chance to take some new pictures but I've narrowed down the true list to be:

It's done, It's over! I did a whole month of 30x30. I've really enjoyed. I've loved knowing what I'll be wearing in advance and not having to think too hard. I planned in for expected nights out and only deviated from the 30x30 once and that was because of a Halloween event and technically I did wear some of these clothes that day but decided not to document it.

There are a few items I'm thinking of getting rid of but I've not as yet. The black boots are going as I've taken a chunk out of the toe of one and I hate the tan boots so I think they will be going as well.

There was only one item I didn't wear and that was the blue fluffy cardie, I almost did wear it and I really think I should add it to the charity pile but I've put it back in the wardrobe.

Week Four is done and dusted and in reality, as I write this Week 5 is almost over (I decided to do these in 5 posts so I would have 6 pictures each week.) I haven't found it too difficult but as you can see from the pictures it was a very boring clothes week and I stuck to a very basic wardrobe. I have just noticed I used the wrong photo in the very last picture but it's just the wrong trousers (Ah Wallace and Gromit!) 

At the end of week 4, there are only 2 unworn Items left in my wardrobe.
  • Blue fluffy Cardie 
  • Tan Boots
The boots will be worn next week, but I'm not sure about the cardie. I don't know if I can part with the cardie but if I don't wear it I really do need to send it to the charity shop.

The most worn item is still the ECCO Boots, followed closely by my ECCO Trainers. 

My goal for next week is to get a little bit of colour in my items and swap out to my November wardrobe and pack up clothes for December. 

I've found it useful for getting ready in the mornings, not one person at work has mentioned my limited wardrobe and I like that. 

I also need to send some of these items to the charity shop but I'll talk about that in my next post. 

In regard to doing weekly posts while I carry on with this way of life, I'm not sure. It's a lovely record and I think I will try and take photos but I might do monthly posts or bi-monthly. An Intro Post and a month-end round up.
