THE SIX ITEMS CHALLENGE

Six items of clothing for six weeks.


Could you do it?

During Summer 2014 I came across the idea of a Capsule Wardrobe and immediately fell in love.  Since then, I have been scaling back the amount of clothes I own and trying to be more careful about my purchases.  About a week ago, as I was pinning ideas for my Fall Capsule, I came across The Six Items Challenge.  Basically, you only wear six items of clothing (that you already own) for six weeks.  This doesn't include uniforms, workout clothes, socks, shoes, underwear, pajamas, accessories and coats.  So, I included this challenge in my Fall 2016 Bucket List!

Want to see the items I chose?

3 tops

1 pair shorts

1 pair black skinnies

1 dress

Not much, huh?

Because I've done the Capsule Wardrobe for so many years now, I really don't own much more than this anyway.  However, even for me, six items is slim pickings!  I'm counting on the shoes, coats and accessories being a big help.

One obstacle I know I'll face is the changing weather.  We are just now leaving behind the blazing hot summer of South Carolina and headed into the Fall (thank goodness).  Although the challenge is to only wear these specific items for six weeks, if the temperatures drop quickly, I will have to switch out the shorts, tank and dress for warmer items.  We will just see how it goes!  I actually already started this challenge on October 20th, so my six weeks will be up on November 1st...and I'll post an update on how it went, of course!

I'm really excited about stretching myself here...would you like to join me?  If so, comment below or send me a personal message.  I'd love to keep in touch and encourage each other!
