A New Challenge.

Dress-Gap, Sweater-Old Navy, Shoes-H&M, Necklace-JCrew Outlet

I was going through my closet this weekend and I was so overwhelmed by the sheer volume of it.
Not gonna lie guys.
I have a lot of clothes.
I feel like I used to be good at getting alot of outfits out of a smallish amount of clothes because I could remix things well.
But lately, I think I have gotten so wrapped up in the "newness" of clothes and even maybe a little the brand name of it.
So. I was going to do another 30 for 30 but I like the idea of using all of my clothes.
So I am going to do a shopping ban.
For the month of June.
But starting Monday June 4.
To help myself out a little I am going to try to take a picture of my outfit everyday.
The good.
The bad.
And the repeat.

If anyone wants to join along, I would love it!
You can link up in the comments at any time!!

I think this is gonna be good.
I know Travis and our check book are gonna love it!

Here's to remixing!!

  2. love this whole outfit. but really. im digging it. you are adorable and loving your hair.


  3. I love that gorgeous blue color of your maxi skirt!

    I've been shopping my closet A LOT more although I still get the urge to go shopping for something new! I think it's awesome that you're going on the shopping ban :)

    Enter to win a clutch!

  4. Alright, I think I need to join you on the shopping ban. I'm in! :)


  5. Great outfit! I'm glad I found your blog.

  6. Love the stripes with the maxi skirt! You look adorable! And I'm totally the same, I get so wrapped up in the new clothes that I forget about the rest... I like your June shopping ban idea - BUT it's my birthday month, so that would be pretty much impossible for me! Heehee! But I will definitely cheer you on from the sidelines! :)

  7. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE! It is all fabulous!

    I would be absolutely honored to have you link this up on my Casual Friday link up party that started yesterday, it would be perfect!


  8. i love this idea! i certainly need to put myself on a shopping ban too.

  9. I know exactly how you feel. I was thinking the same sort of things - which was why I decided to do a 30x 30 challenge! I'm still going, and am really starting to appreciate my closet; especially all the things not in my 30 that I want to be wearing haha! :)

  10. This is such a great idea. I always feel the same way. Looking forward to following along and doing my best not to shop as well...

  11. I love this 'fit. The blue with the stripes is awesome. I too have the same problem of being in love with the newness of clothes. Because of my little 'problem' I now have clothes strew all across my room, making it even harder for me to figure out what to wear on any given day!

  12. I also imposed a shopping ban on myself for the month of June (just recently posted about it too!) because of how much I had been buying instead of focusing on what I have. I considered a 30x30 too but didn't do it because right now I'm more interested in appreciating all of the things I have - same thought as you had! Love that you're doing it too, keep us updated with how yours is going! :)
