Would you wear the same thing every day for a month? Stylist [Valerie Elizabeth](http://www.societystylist.com/) has challenged herself to wear the same black dress for 30 days, only changing her accessories. She’s trying to prove that you don’t need a huge wardrobe or a lot of money to look fresh and good. I think this is a lesson we can all learn from and enjoy.
I feel like I wear the same thing every day. Matter of fact, in some cases, I do. I get up, throw on some workout clothes, work out, shower, then put on some jeans (crop in summer, long in winter) and a t-shirt. This is my uniform. I work in a metals studio and get dirty so why in the world would I wear something nice? But I like nice clothes which is why I work at a clothing boutique. Thing is, I tend to wear the same thing to work too. Mostly it’s white jeans or dark denim and a black top. I have a wide variety of black tops, but I gravitate towards three or four different styles. So why do I have two closets full of clothes? Because I want choices. I want variety. I want to know I can change my mind or style whenever I feel like it.
Someone once told me that most women wear about 25% of their wardrobe and I agree. While I have a vast array of jeans I tend to wear the same few pair every week. I have many, many pairs of shoes, but still grab the same few styles daily. Again, it’s all about choices. I love taking my favorite Gap jeans and wearing them with a variety of jackets or t-shirts. Since shoes need time to breathe, it’s best to not wear the same pair two days in a row (same for bras). Some days I feel strong and tough, while other days I feel chic and feminine so I like to have different styles for my emotions.
Would you wear the same thing every day for a month? After reading Valerie Elizabeth’s blog, I’m wondering if I could do it. Maybe I should challenge myself to a week. Nah, I know I’d never make it!
