Why Did I Remix?

Outfit 30 of 30!!!!

Im not so sure what I thought I was going to learn from this challenge. I mean other than the obvious realization that I possess entirely too much "stuff", so much in fact that a few duplicates were found in my massive mountain of shame. Maybe I thought I would find some sort of way to get out of the house sooner in the mornings (which I did to my husbands delight).Maybe I didnt think ANYTHING at all. Who knows what I thought!
Thinking back, its seemed to be the latter. There was no thought whatsoever in this madness other than I saw the challenge and I thought "Sure, that sounds cool." Some bloggers talked about carefully choosing their 30 items and even creating a spreadsheet of outfits they would wear over the 30 days. I on the other hand didnt think AT ALL about my selections. I hurriedly yanked clothes that I rarely wore and even some that I questioned fit me anymore. Shame on me.

Over the month I realized I made a smart decision in not deciding too carefully what I was going to wear. Once I made the commitment to wear only those items, I noticed I only chose ONE pair of flat shoes. My husband started to notice I was more confident in my choices and I wasnt asking him what he thought of my remixes. It was nice to wear dresses on a Wednesday or heels while grocery shopping with my toddler.


Dress:TJMaxx
Top:Old Navy
Socks:Target
Shoes:Payless
Scarf:Thrifted
Hat:Forever 21
So Why Did I Remix: Because it allowed me to celebrate being a girl. I allowed myself to remember the gal I was before I had a husband and children. Before I thought constantly about stains on my clothes. Putting thought into what I am wearing while not being concerned with what others may think has given me the chance to Remember the Old Confident Me.
