Tyler told me today I have too many clothes.
Say what?
Can a girl have too many clothes?

Well, this may end up being a mistake, but I decided to take on a personal challenge.  I do feel very blessed and don't want this explanation to come across the wrong way... I've been fortunate enough to have a wonderful friend who recently gave me a bunch of clothes.  I've also bought a lot of clothes in the last little bit.  And although I went through my old clothes and gave a lot away not too long ago, I'm finding my closet is pretty full; full of clothes I'm still not wearing much.  Not because I don't like them, but because I get into clothes-moods and wear the same bunch of tops over and over.  I just can't seem to give up on some of those other clothes yet and give them away.

So... my challenge, starting the beginning of the year, is to wear a different top every day without repeating a top until I've worn all of them once.  (If needed, I can repeat pants, accessories, shoes, cardigans, jackets, coats, socks, and underwear... it's mainly just the tops that can't be repeated.)

I'm taking on this challenge to hopefully find out what clothes I actually like and would wear.  If I find I'm not digging them, then I should just give them away.

I've decided to do this with my church attire too... this one might prove to be a little more difficult because I have a million skirts (from way back when) that will need to be worn with a plain top...  and I only have so many of those.  I may have to adjust the rules with those outfits...?  But for sure the skirt/dress will change each Sunday.

In order to keep me accountable, I've decided to take pictures and document them somehow.  I'll let you know how I document, if you're actually interested... maybe on a separate blog.  Even if I don't post every day I'll still be taking pictures every day.  Yikes!  What am I getting myself into?

  2. That's a good idea, I've thought of doing that too for awhile but have felt shy so I haven't... But I do the exact same thing with my clothes...half my clothes I set aside for "another day" and that day never comes and the other half still feel awkward with my post baby body... I'm determined to get myself in order and my clothes too with this new year...
    you have to share what you come up with :)I love fashion stuff and I'd love to see how u put the clothes together....
    I've been outta town forever and it was crazy busy before I left but I meant to get together before I left... We have to get together when I'm back in town :)

  3. if i did this with my clothes, I would seriously be done in 1 1/2 weeks. and thats only with the tops. LOL!

  4. I love this, Emily! I am the exact same. I still wear stuff from jr. high and high school. I just can't get rid of it. But there are definitely tops that get favored and worn more often than others. I will have to go through my closet and make some touch decisions, too.

  5. Cory tells me I have too many clothes all the time. But I like your challenge idea. I'll join you once I'm done being pregnant and fit into my clothes again :)

  6. Emily!
