So far, mostly good. Weather has been much cooler than normal for this time of year, so made one more swap at the beginning: a long-sleeve tee in charcoal grey for the taupe sleeveless tunic.
The good: so far all of the chosen pieces are coordinating nicely. I'm wearing jeans less and a skirt more. I've been focusing on varying my accessories more widely on a day to day basis, and utilized some pieces I hadn't worn in a while.
The challenges: there are a few pieces in my closet which didn't make the Gang of Twelve that I'd really like to wear right now. My Elie Moss tunic sweater doesn't look like it's going to hold up to a heavy rotation; it's started to pill in spots so I'm going to have to go easy on that one, which is a shame as it's really easy to wear with everything. I have an executive presentation coming up in a couple of weeks, and may need to step outside the boundaries just for that one day. Maybe not, but I'm allowing myself the option.
Observations: while this does make getting dressed a bit easier in the mornings, I'm finding that it still requires some planning and thought. I do much better taking this one day at a time rather than thinking about another three weeks of wearing the same pieces. If you're going to limit the number of items in your wardrobe, they really do need to be of substantial quality to hold up to constant wear.
Are any of you playing along with the Express Lane Wardrobe Challenge? If so, how is it going?
