31 for 31 Capsule Challenge



So here it is.
My 31 for 31 Capsule Collage.
It may come as no surprise to discover my "wild card " Leopard Flats were the most worn item - 13 times.
My white vest was the most worn top (6); Zara Jeans, the most worn bottoms (6); the checked dress//skirt the most worn dress (4) and the denim shirt was the most worn jacket (7).
I did amend the list as I went on and swapped a few items from the original list but there were still 31 items.
In hindsight I wish I'd sat down and worked out exactly what my wardrobe had to do over the month including how many working days I had, how many evenings out and how many informal attire days I had.
I would have chosen my shoes more wisely and made sure all my tops went with all my bottoms and all my jackets went with every item.
I plan to do this all again in September with the lessons I have learned this time because it did make life a lot easier yet creative at the same time.
I will also be adding in an extra challenge by throwing in a "Back To School Capsule Wardrobe Challenge" in September.

And finally, the winner of the People Tree giveaway will be..................

 anounced tomorrow.

  2. Oh my, it is the last day of the month, isn't it? I have to say there is not one outfit you styled that I didn't like. Seriously!

  5. Some great outfits were created with your 31 items. Hindsight is always a great thing but like you say at least for next time you can plan your schedule with your outfits. I have just got to a workshop away from home for a few days to find it is casual attire after packing for business wear. Quick wardrobe shuffle coming on I feel!

  6. You created some lovely looks. It won't surprise you to know that my favourites tend to be the ones with brighter colours and prints! xx
