Closet Love.

Between running 5 days a week and studying nonstop, I have been looking pretty…bummy lately. Sweatshirts. Leopard print pajama pants. Juicy Couture knee socks (THE best!). And if I put something other than Uggs on my feet, I must be going to church. And let’s be honest…I wear Uggs to church sometimes too. But now that I’ve completed my last final (!!!), I’m ready to get back to my old self. I need a little glamour in my life.

As soon as I finished my Con Law final last night, I went to Cusp and bought this Dogeared Light as a Feather necklace using a gift card I’ve been saving all semester. I fully believe in rewarding yourself for hard work. I was tempted to buy clothes instead, but I realized I already have SO many clothes that I’ve been neglecting. I rushed home, “shopped” my own closet and ended up with a rack full of Fall goodies, most of which I forgot I even had.

I’m challenging myself to spend the next month creating, mixing and matching looks from my own closet without spending any money on new clothes. I think this is the perfect way to get out of my fashion rut, to appreciate what I already have and to remind myself of the essentials that I’m missing. When I start shopping again, I’ll know exactly what to look for. I already know one thing I’m missing: COLOR. I love my neutrals/blacks, but as you can see, I need a little more color in my life.

I hope you’ll all join me in this Closet Love challenge! I’m starting today, December 20th and going to January 20th. Feel free to join at any time! I’ll be posting pictures of my daily outfits on tumblr and I’ll do a weekly round-up here as well. I’ll also post my outfit inspirations on Pinterest (obvi my new obsession). I’d love to see your looks as well. Tweet/Facebook/Email them to me (jerrellreneeblogs{at}gmail{dot}com) and I’ll post them here in my weekly round-up!

I’m off to catch up on the stack of magazines I purchased and never got to read this semester. That’s my idea of the perfect way to start this Christmas Break!

  1. Fun idea. As I sit here in my tennis duds for the second day. Different duds, mind you, but both days, for tennis! Maybe tomorrow (when it rains) I’ll go into my closet and find something fashionable!
