After much soul-searching over the weekend (read: thirty seconds of thinking before I drifted off to sleep), I decided I'm going to attempt RA's 31 for 31 challenge this month.
May is tricky in Austin (this year - I don't remember it being quite so cool in previous years during April, but I'm not complaining). Do I include sweaters? shorts? both? (both, obviously).
We'll be in Utah for a week this month, and I can't decide if that will make things easier or more difficult. Hard to cheat that week, I guess. Also, probably easier to pack.
RA left it pretty wide open as far as how you wanted to interpret 31 items, so I chose to not include shoes in that 31. I see my ideal wardrobe as pretty small as far as clothing goes, with a bigger range of shoes and accessories to rotate in and out with. If you want to call this cheating, go ahead; I will not be offended.
Also, to make it easy on myself, I'm taking everything out of my drawers that isn't listed here and putting it on the high shelf in my closet so I am not constantly thinking, "Was this one of my items?" And possibly at the end, I will just donate the entire bag without looking in it.
Either way, here are my 31 items for May. (I just typed "Mary" instead of "May." I don't know who Mary is, but she is not getting my 31 favorite items of clothing).
A shocking lack of color here, isn't there? I like neutrals.
But apparently I do like colorful sweaters.
Frankly, this is too many skirts. I am not a skirt-wearer except for Sundays. I spend too much time flopping on the couch and lying on the floor flipping Ella around or playing airplane with Ani to wear skirts most days. Oh well.
Pants are definitely the staple of my wardrobe. One of those pairs of jeans is actually shorts.
(And, if you're the counting type, you might notice this is only thirty things. I just ordered a new pair of jeans that hasn't arrived yet, so it's number 31. Unless they don't fit, in which case, well, I guess I'll be doing 30 things).
