Last Day of Six Items or Less!

Six Items or Less: Today's Outfit...


Six Items or Less: A Month of Outfits....

I have to admit that I am really, really glad to get to the final day of this wardrobe challenge! Though I'm always glad for the experience, I think this wasn't the best time of the year to do it.

I was very distracted by Christmas. This is a time of year when I spend less time working and more time hanging out with family, watching Christmas movies, lighting Christmas candles, reading Christmas novels, so it was hard to keep my focus on checking in with the Six Items or Less community.

But I also got bored with my six. Now, that happens every time, but during this cycle, it happened much sooner. I think that may have been because early in the cycle, I realized what a good "uniform" I had created with my sweater-dress-as-tunic with leggings and a scarf. And that was my only insight this time around. After that sunk in, I was ready to call it done and wear some of my other clothes!

The weather was a complication, too. I thought it would be cold most of the time, and the weather just did not cooperate. So I never knew from day to day what I would be able to wear and that was frustrating. It even led to my swapping out a couple of things in my capsule wardrobe to accommodate the warmer temps.

Still, I'm glad I did it and may do it again next time. I only hope it will be during a time when the weather is all cold or all warm and it isn't a holiday season.

Meanwhile, I can't wait to wear the rest of the clothes in my closet!!

Warm Autumn:“This woman never pretends. She won’t say something just to flatter you unless she believes it to be true. She cries harder than anyone at a funeral. She is fiercely loyal to her family but will not spare them hard work or spoil them with extravagance. She may seem to absorb a lot of demands but when she draws the line at enough, everyone knows it.” ~~Christine Scaman, 12 Blueprints

    Will you be posting outfits from your holiday capsule, now that the challenge has finished?

  2. Hi Trudy! Good question!! I hadn't thought about it, to be honest, but I am sure I will post one or two.

    I've been so caught up in surviving the challenge that I hadn't thought of it, other than my touches of red or green in the outfits I've been wearing. Thanks for the reminder!

  3. You are always amazing with your Six Item Challenges! And it's always a bummer when the weather doesn't cooperate with what you want to wear! LOL!

  4. Oh how sweet, B.! Thanks!! And you're so right. But what's a gal to do? :)
