Recap of the April 2016 #spring30for30

Another closet remix challenge has come and gone, and for the #spring30for30 my challenge to myself was to do some new hair styles. I always put my hair in a bun to keep it out of my face all day, but this time I added some side braids, buns, and twists into the mix.

I feel that clothes have nothing to do with who we are [and they shouldn't define us], but sometimes it's fun to wear some colour and prints. I understand draping and construction, and I get why some people are really into clothing/accessories and shopping. As I said with the #moms30for30 challenge, "Fashion should be utilitarian or fun - depending on your perception."

Shopping and filling my closet was a fun past time for me, but in recent years I've decided to only shop when I need to replace items due to the wear and tear of motherhood. I can no longer justify buying clothes and shoes to just sit in a closet - I will no longer add more "stuff" to my home.

From my little shared closet [with my husband] I selected 30 items to rotate for the 30 days of the #spring30for30. Some days my outfits were very casual and others I dressed up a little more - depending on the day's activities. Here are my #spring30for30 outfits for April:

fashion, florals, stripes, cardigans, boyfriend jeans

fashion, stripes, forever 21, amazon.ca, florals
orgonite pendant, boyfriend chambray, stripes
forever 21, fashion, aztec print, turquoise, blue quartz, hair twist
