I think this is something like my 8th or 9th remix and it’s been really interesting, because my emotions have been pretty consistent in the past, but they’re totally different this time.
In the days of yore, these hard-core remixes would fire me up about putting new combinations together. Right now, all I want is to reach into the rest of my closet and make any outfit I darn well please. And also to be sitting on a beach writing this. And maybe some french toast. But I’d settle for just the first.
I’ve been trying to figure out why I’m so moody, and I’m not totally sure, but I think part of the frustration comes from shopping the rest of my closet to put together looks around my 8 pieces while trying to use every “addition” at least twice. I want so much for those of you who are new to GTR to get pumped up about the fact that you don’t have to have a lot of pieces to create a bunch of unique looks.
I also have been dreaming and setting goals for GTR and I’ve got some plans for y’all that I’m just plain fired up about! As soon as I’ve got a direction I want to head, the old one seems boring and stale.
Even with all these thoughts flying around, y’all have kept me excited about the remix! I’ve had so much fun watching you on IG! I especially love the group of girls doing the remix together. (Search the #shopyourcloset hashtag and you’ll find them.) Accountability and encouragement can make all the difference in reaching your goals!
Because of that, I’m working behind the scenes on some specific ways to build more accountability and encouragement into GTR, and I’d love to hear from you- what are your style goals for 2015, and how can I help?
Comment below or shoot me an e-mail, and then if you’re remixing, let’s see your looks!
Here’s a quick peek at mine. As bored as I’m feeling, I really do like the looks I came up with this week, so if you’re also having death stare contests with your closet, too, be encouraged- pushing yourself will teach you something! I’m definitely proof of that.
Now, let’s see your looks and hear what you’re discovering about your closet! I want to learn from you, too! (If you’re just joining us, the remix and giveaway details are below, too!)
PS Don’t forget to ask your questions, share your outfits, and tell us what you’re learning on the GTR Facebook page or by using the hashtag #shopyourclosetremix on social media.
