For July, I'm going to take part in the #moms30for30 challenge, and I'll have to remix the same 30 clothing items for 30 days.
I don't ever wear yoga pants, sweat pants, or runners, but my uniform tends to be a t-shirt and jeans. Unfortunately, my shirts usually have paint (sometimes permanent) or food on them from my 3 year old. I guess I should scour my closet for what I want to have as my 30 items... I'm always purging what doesn't fit - or what's ruined - so we'll see what I have to work with.
This wardrobe remix will also challenge me to use my accessories - I rarely wear jewellery unless it's a night out. (With the amount of daily dishes and hand washing I just don't bother wearing any jewellery...even my wedding rings.)
Unless I'm going to an event or for a night out, I don't dress up because I spend all day with my girls. I've felt a pull in the last year to simplify my possessions and through this challenge I want to show appreciation for what I have. I can still have outfits that look pulled together even with simple basic items.
I'm the role model for my daughters, and I want them to understand that it doesn't matter how we dress up our outer self. Our real selves have nothing to do with what we buy or what we wear.

How to participate:
Choose 30 items of clothing that you already own and wear them for 30 days - mix them up to make 30 different outfits (accessories, shoes, jackets and sports wear aren't included).
Join us July 1st for the summer edition of the #moms30for30, and discover how you can mix and style the contents of your closet. Post photos to Instagram, Twitter and/or Facebook with the hashtag #moms30for30, and we can see the outfits that everyone comes up with.
We all have different ideas about dressing, and different reasons for participating in this challenge - what are yours?
