30 for 30 {Day 4 -TGIF}

Jacket-Anthropologie, Shirt(similar here)-J.Crew, Jeans-Paige, Shoes-BCBG, Necklace-Stella & Dot, Earrings- gift from India


TGIF is all I can say - oh, and I get to wear jeans to work today! Four days in and I'm so glad I decided to participate in this challenge. I even had a co-worker say I inspired her to take a look at her closet and wear something she hadn't worn in a long time (and she looked great!). That's what this is all about-working with what you have and really challenging yourself to mix it up. 


I've already learned a few things about myself in these four short days:

  1. I have WAY more clothes than I need. Any fashionista will tell you that you can NEVER have too many clothes, shoes, jewelry, accessories - I used to be one of them. But getting ready for work each morning has been stress-free and I attribute it to fewer options. I'm forced to work with what I have and get creative. I see myself donating a lot of stuff at the end of this challenge
  2. I've done a good job investing in key pieces (patting myself on the back as I type this) that are very versatile. 
  3. I now honestly stand behind my statement to my clients (I shop for a handful of people) that it's not how much you have, but how you put it together. I preach this all the time to them, but haven't practiced it myself. 
This much self reflection in four days? What will I turn into at the end of 30? You'll have to stick around to see.
