Happy New Years Eve!!! Before the celebrating begins, time to check on my progress for the wardrobe challenge! Near the beginning of the month, Everlane gave me $20 toward a purchase as a thank you for being a customer this year and I ordered two of their awesome tees. I usually buy the men's tees but decided to try a couple new women's tees! And before Christmas I picked up a new silver ring while out Christmas shopping.

I also got a few clothing items for Christmas! 3 of which I asked for, 2 my mom guessed on what I would like.  She got me a cardigan and BB Dakota sweater which I returned because it fit me a little weird.

  1. Just five seven standout pieces per season.
  2. Quality over quantity.
  3. Basics don’t count.
  4. Accessories don’t count, unless you’re spending a lot more than usual.

  6. Shoes do count.
