I know why you are feeling slightly confused. Why do I only have four outfits? Isn’t it supposed to be closer to 30? The reason is simple. I didn’t get to document most of the outfits. I always thought I’d get round to making a collage or something, but I never did. I also cheated. I did sometimes wear an outfit that didn’t contain any of my top ten items. (OK, that sentence should have read that I sometimes wore items from my top ten).
I didn’t think it through when I picked these items. I was so worried about them reflecting my style, that I didn’t bother to think about the weather. The start of April was warm enough, but from mid April onwards most of these items didn’t cut it. Especially when I went to visit my folks, who live in a much colder climate. Also, some of these items just didn’t fit like they used to. They were slightly uncomfortable and I just dreaded wearing them. There were also days where I just didn’t want to wear any of them, so I didn’t.
So here is the breakdown:
Red Tartan Pencil Skirt: Worn twice (undocumented)
Lightning bolt earrings: Worn twice (once undocumented)
Camouflage heels: Worn once
Jeggings: I wore these the most. If I had to guess, I’d say I wore them 5 times. (undocumented).
Red Jeans: I wore them twice. (Once undocumented)
Black Blazer: I wore it twice.
Aztec Print skirt: I only wore this once.
Lightning bolt jersey: I wore this warm and cozy jersey 2 or three times. (only documented once).
Black mesh panel tee: I didn’t wear this. Not once.
Gold link necklace: I wore this at least once, maybe one more time after that.
Would I participate in any future Top Ten Remixes? Yes, I would. For me, April was a difficult month. We had so many long weekends (who wants to dress up on a long weekend?) and the weather is quite fickle. Next time I will be more prepared though. I’d also add in some more colour and a neural other than black. I say that, but red and black has always been my go-to, so I might just have to eat my words.
