9 Day Fashion Challenge - Day One

One of the greatest things I've seen in Japanese fashion magazines is their week or month spreads with small numbers of clothes. They'll take a few shirts, bottoms, and shoes, and create a week's or month's worth of outfits that are all super cute and unique. I absolutely LOVE this. Over the last few years I've wanted to do something like that with my own clothes but never got around to it. Since I currently feel like I look like poop in the majority of my clothes, I figured I would take this opportunity and challenge myself to a week long challenge with some of the clothes that I feel good in.

I also took this opportunity to buy a new dress from Target. Because, yes.

For this challenge I snagged 3 t-shirts, 2 tank tops, 1 dress, 1 pair of jean shorts, 1 belt, and 3 pairs of shoes to create 9 unique outfits.

My goals for this challenge are 5 fold:

1) I've always wanted to do this so I want to prove to myself I can do it
2) I want to feel confident in my clothes
3) I don't want to feel like I don't have anything to wear even though I have a closet and dresser full of clothes
4) It pushes me out of my comfort zone a little
5) I want to spend less time getting ready in the morning and more time with Dean & Aaron

So I started this today and the outfit I picked to wear is this:

Some things of note that you cannot see~ coffee & spit up on my tank, and my jeans are secured by a ponytail holder because I'm too big to button them. These little details I wear proudly, even if they aren't noticeable. It's my life now and I'm so proud of it. Well, maybe not the coffee spill because that was my bad, it shouldn't have happened lol!

So day one of my nine day challenge went great. I look forward to dressing up and rocking these outfits, especially the dress. I couldn't tell you the last time I wore anything like that. High school maybe? Too long in my estimation. Hopefully I can stick with it and post my progress over the next eight days. What do you think about this challenge? Have you ever done anything like this? If this goes well I already have challenge number two in the works. ♥
