Wear It All Summer Outfit Challenge

Over the Summer, I realized that there was no way I would possibly wear every piece of my Summer wardrobe without making some sort of concerted effort. Days later, I found a challenge happening on Instagram called Wear It All July. The organizers of the challenge were attempting to create completely new outfits for every single day of July without repeating any single piece of clothing (including shoes!).

It was already the middle of July when I found the challenge, so I decided to take up the challenge for myself, but extend it until my birthday - August 31st. I changed the rules a little, though. (Who didn't see that coming? #rebel)

The Wear It All Summer Challenge challenges you to wear all the clothing in your wardrobe without repeats! | #outfitchallenge #closetchallenge #stylechallenge

My rules allowed my to repeat jeans & shoes, but I couldn't wear any single pair more than twice in a week. I just didn't have enough jeans and shoes to not repeat! (I have about 8,000 shirts and dresses, though. Roughly.)

Every day, I took a photo of my outfit and then posted collages to Instagram about once a week with the hashtag #wearitallsummer19

I'd hoped to share all of these a while ago, but life has been wildly busy! SO before I'm deep in the trenches of fall fashion, here's all of the summer outfits I put together over the weeks of my challenge.

While it was hard to be limited, I really enjoyed this challenge! I probably would have ended up wearing the same things over and over again and ignoring a lot of other pieces. I learned a few things about myself though!

+ Jeans and a black tee is my essential uniform.
+ My closet almost exclusively consists of: black, grey, blue, green, and brown with a hint of yellow.
+ I've always been a sucker for a floral, but I didn't realize how much I like a stripe, or how I'm almost always likely to pick a solid.

Fall fashion is my fav (and I have a whole bunch of post ideas to work on!), so I thought about taking on this challenge again in October. BUT, I just don't think I can limit myself! So we'll see what happens...maybe I'll just take a daily OOTD photo for all of October?

Have you done any clothing or wardrobe challenges? If you have, point me in their direction, please!!
