So there goes 2012. The year I gave birth to my second baby and watched her grow into a beautiful contented little person. The year I watched my big girl grow out of toddler-hood, always learning and changing and full of surprises. The year I turned 30 and decided to do something purely for myself. The year I started up a blog (who would have seen that coming?) and started my quest for a functional wardrobe.
I’ve already published well over 100 blog posts, and managed to wear a different outfit pretty much every single day during the last four months. Some days this has been a challenge, others it has been a chore, but generally it has been fun and rewarding. I can’t lie – I certainly HAVE bought a lot of new clothes during this time! This was possible because I had saved up some money over a long period, knowing I needed new clothes but not sure where to start. I also requested shopping money for my birthday, which really helped me start to refresh my wardrobe. Alas, that head start has all gone and I am now back to my regular budget of $20 per week – to cover clothes, plus anything else “frivolous” I would like to buy for myself.
So far I have been really pleased with the variety of outfits I have been able to put together using pieces in my wardrobe, and below are my top five for 2012.
And that was 2012, the start of my quest for a functional wardrobe. Thank you so much for reading, it has been very rewarding for me personally, and if anyone else finds this blog useful or interesting then that is the icing on the cake!
