I do love a challenge, so I have decided to take part in No Repeat November: read more about it here. In theory I shouldn't have too many problems in wearing a different outfit each day of the month. I have already created my capsule wardrobe for Autumn and most tops go with most bottoms in my wardrobe. To make it slightly easier, you can wear the same garments more than once, but something in the outfit must be different, even if it's just a different scarf or necklace.
The above photos show my new purchases: three tops, a cardigan and a pair of trousers. Clearly the three tops worn with the cardigan and trousers will give me different outfits for three days, however I could also wear them with my brown jeggings or navy jeans on other days, so now I have enough outfits for nine days. What if I wore my olive cardigan instead of the sand one, or my navy cardigan, or perhaps the brown hoodie on more casual days? I've now created a month's worth of different outfits, without wearing any of the other eight tops currently hanging up in my wardrobe. Don't forget that I can change my accessories too to change the look even more. Thirty different outfits? It really shouldn't be a problem.
I have a very good reason for wanting to take part in this challenge, as I'm taking part in a different challenge at the same time - not to buy any new clothes or accessories in November. This could prove even more challenging than not wearing the same outfit twice in the month! I'm hoping that creating different outfits each day will distract me from the tempting offers arriving in my inbox every morning. Wish me luck! Even better, why don't you join me in one or both of the challenges?
