Thoughts for Thursday: 30 Day Closet Remix Challenge

Hello, hello and welcome to another Thoughts for Thursday!! Thank you to everyone who links up every week.  Remember you can write about whatever you want- just grab the button below and link up at the bottom.

Thoughts for Thursday


Since I have less than 10 weeks left in this pregnancy I really want to avoid buying anymore maternity/bump friendly clothes.  With the clothes I've purchased to get through the summer and the cooler weather options I have left from my pregnancy with Miller I've decided to give myself a 30 day closet remix challenge. I first did one of these back in January when one of my favorite fashion instagrammers mrsstrock did one. You can see my post about it here.  The idea is that you "shop" your own closet for 30 days.  The goal is to not bring anything new into my wardrobe and to only work with items I currently own. This includes accessories like jewelry, scarfs, handbags, and shoes too.

I'm going to start on September 1 and end on September 30th.   In order to hold myself accountable I'm going to be documenting my outfits on Instagram and post weekly here on the blog.  I can't guarantee that I will document all 30 days since it isn't always glamorous around here but I will try.  If anyone is interested in joining in the fun my instagram is @eastcoastnat and I'm using the hashtag #ecn30dayclosetremix 

With a limited maternity selection this could get interesting but I keep reminding myself that I don't want to spend any more money on maternity clothes so I can spend on fun winter clothes once I have this baby! 

In other news I have some fun posts in the works for next week thanks  to all your great suggestions!

Now it's your turn!

  1. I'm 3 mos postpartum from baby #3...I totally understand getting tired of your {limited} wardrobe during pregnancy, it sucks! I'm still working on getting into most of my pre-prego stuff! I bet you look great though!

  2. I could totally do this with you. I've been doing it already. I haven't bought anything since May so I've had to "shop within my closet"." We've been trying to pay off debt so my rule was you can't buy anything till it's paid off. Very smart but sucks for me!!

  4. I loved when you did this last time! Since my closet is in pieces and I can't find any of my clothes I think I may need to do this along with you!! Yay super excited to see what you put together!

  5. I love this idea! Outfit posts are my fav on IG. Can't wait to see what you put together! I will be needing some ideas for fall!

  6. Can't wait to see what you come up with! We're going to do your "no spend September" so I'll be doing a version of this myself!

  7. Yay! I love this idea. I definitely need to try and follow along. I secretly was trying to make August a no spend month and purposely didn't blog about it because I was worried I would fail at it and I did!!! I made it 2 weeks and once I decided to buy one thing....it was all downhill from there!! haha. September will be hard because there will be so many cute fall things tempting me, but I might give it another try. Definitely in FL, I don't need Fall things until October/Nov anyways.

  8. Love this idea! I might have to do the same in a month or two once we get settled in our new place. Can't wait to follow along!

  9. Can't wait to see what you come up with - I think I could try this at least for two weeks and who knows maybe it would go for the full month!

  10. Congrats on the baby! This is a great idea! I have tons of stuff that could be worn but just hangs out in the closet.

  11. Congrats on the pregnancy, what a great idea to do the 30 for 30 so you don't spend anymore on maternity clothes! I did my first 30 for 30 challenge earlier this year and it really helped me figure out my style better.

  12. I LOOVE this idea! I may not join in this month...but maybe I'll start a challenge of my own in october. I'm a shopping addict so this would be a great way to help me curb my bad habits =) I'm looking forward to seeing the outfits you come up with, just followed on bloglovin!

  13. Such a great idea. Are there rules about repeating outfits? I only bought $150 worth of maternity this last pregnancy but I honestly broke down with a month to go and purchased some new things (otherwise it would have been under $100).
