I’ve made it to the end of my first short week with my 30 day closet challenge. The first few days were tough because I cleaned out my entire closet. And by clean I mean that I took everything out and only put back the clothes I am going to wear for the next 30 days.
But I do have a confession to make…I have swapped a few things out over the course of these first days. I don’t feel I’ve cheated because if I wore something, it had to stay in my closet. So in the end, I will only have worn 30 items for 30 days, but choosing items for a whole month is hard. And it’s all complicated by the fact that it’s winter in Colorado, which means it could be 60 degrees or snowing. And it snowed a lot this week. 22.7 inches to be exact!
That event made me long for my Ugg Boots which had not been part of my original 30 items. I also swapped out my green blazer for my cream one and trimmed back on 2 t-shirts. You’ll notice I only have 28 items shown below. With the crazy Colorado weather, I feel it’s necessary to have a little wiggle room for 2 items. And who knows, I might make it with these 28. We’ll see. Here are the
30 28 items I will be wearing for the next month.

4. Olive Sweater | 5. Dark Purple Sweater
6. Beige 3/4 Sleeve Sweater | 7. Black Crop Sweater | 8. Gray Kimono Sweater
