As I mentioned a few weeks ago, I will be participating in something called the Common Threads Challenge for the month of October. You can read the details here, but the gist is this: pick 5 pieces from your wardrobe and incorporate at least one of them into each of your outfits for the month of October. It seems lot less stress-inducing than a seasonal capsule wardrobe or a 30 x 30, but still facilitates lots of wardrobe re-mixing.
Anyway, for this first day of October, I thought I would share which five pieces I’ve chosen for the challenge:
olive tee (exact): I just bought this a few weeks ago, so I’m excited to get creative with how I wear it. I think it will be easy to dress up (with a skirt) for work or down (with jeans) on the weekends.
black knit blazer (similar): I bought this blazer during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, but it hasn’t been cool enough to wear it yet. I’m hoping that fall will finally arrive this month, so layering season can begin. If not…well then, I guess I’ll be that sweaty girl in the corner wearing a blazer.
burgundy skirt (similar): This skirt has actually been in my closet for a while, but due to the weight fluctuations associated with pregnancy and then breastfeeding, I haven’t been able to wear it until relatively recently. So, I’ve had a few years to think of a few outfits!
cognac booties (almost exact): I love these booties, and I’ve worn them several times on the blog before. That being said, I just don’t reach for boots as often as I would like in the fall and winter months–I tend to gravitate toward flats. Looking forward to giving these some love.
Now it’s your turn–which 5 pieces would you choose to “re-mix” for fall?
