it’s only day 4.
i loved these pieces before i started, but every single outfit i’ve put on i’ve felt ‘meh’ about. is that because i don’t like the limits and want to be done with them or do i really feel that way? does that even make sense? this morning my hangup was that i wouldn’t normally pair this sweater with this outfit but i had no other choice. i also spent time worrying that i don’t have enough summery shoes to pull this off. ridiculous musings, but these are the thoughts in my head.
on another note, i seriously cannot believe how messy i am. i got a stain on this sweater somehow already (i’ve worn it for about an hour and a half as i write this) and a sweet child who gave me a bear hug yesterday got ink on my dress. sigh. that one i think i can blame on my cousin, though. he walked up to me yesterday and asked, amazed, as he pointed at my shoulder, “you’re wearing that even with the huge stain on it?” panicked, i searched the fabric as he laughed. “just kidding- i know you only have 11 things you can wear this month and i wanted to make you sweat.” nice. way to jinx me. ha :)
clothes are just things and even if i ruin every single piece of clothing during this challenge, i’ll be fine. (it shows how shallow my heart is still that with that statement i got a teensy bit squirmy in my seat.) but they are! just things. yet they hold a power over me at times. my friends, this should not be. hence, the challenge(s). so bring it on, day 4! i’ll beat you and my emotions, too!
