Shop your Closet 7 day challenge, Polka Dots, & Pearls

For the next week I am participating in The Wardrobe Code's Shop your Closet 7 day challenge. This means no shopping for 7 days and only wearing what I already have in my closet. Sounds easy, right?? I hope so because I will extending the challenge to myself for the entire month!

Here is some of what I will be learning through this challenge:

  • "How to identify my best pieces,
  • How to get out of a wardrobe rut,
  • How to craft the perfect outfit - balanced with essential pieces, and
  • How to use color and texture the right way."

I'm really excited to see what I can do with what I already have. I will be a day behind in posting each day's challenge since I won't find out what it is until that morning.

  2. I love the idea of this challenge since for most people it's not realistic to go shopping for new pieces all the time! This is such a sophisticated yet still fun (with the polka dots) work look!

    1. I really wish I had sized down on this one. It's just a tad big and long. I'll have to look into getting it altered.
