30 Day Challenge Update || Days 12-21

It's been a while but fear not, I haven't fallen off the 30 day wardrobe wagon (YET) although I've felt like throwing myself off it once or twice. But actually, boring and all as it is, it's pretty simple to get dressed every day - I've so little choice...

Before I share my outfits from the past week, I have a dilemma ahead of me in the shape of a trade show in Dublin starting tomorrow (Sunday). It's an upmarket, designer-led trade show and I don't think my 30 items are going to cut the mustard. I did a panic shop yesterday in the dregs of the M&S sale (big mistake), coming home with a leopard print pleated skirt and a pair of straight cut jeans that are too big *eye roll*. An equally panicked ASOS order is also going back - I bought a dress that I can't actually get on's got a ridiculously tight underskirt that has no stretch. But fear not - I had a successful try on in Warehouse this morning...more on my next post.

But what have I been wearing this past week? I missed a few days of photos but I'll try to re-create photos from those days before the end of the challenge....if I can remember. You'll have to take my word for it that on Day 11, I wore my tweed New Look Skirt with my black cashmere crew neck. Day 12 was a denim shirt, black jeans and green crew neck kind of day:

Day 13 was all the grey with a new scarf I was given by my Secret Santa at Christmas:
Day 14 we headed to Ikea and fed up of my black puffa coat, I wore my biker jacket layered under my fur gilet.
Day 15 was another photo fail day. But I do remember wearing blue jeans and the black knit. We were at the cinema (watching Sing!) so spent most of the middle of the day out and about.
Day 16 - back to work and back in the green:
Day 17 and I wore my poncho over black, with my camo scarf from Topshop
Day 18 - work again and it was my wide leg trousers with my metallic brogues.
Day 19 was a slightly different one as I was at the gym in the morning, changed for a choir engagement in the middle of the day (all black) and because I was running in the evening, I changed straight into gym gear (clean stuff!) once I got home from singing.  Hence - no photo!
Day 20 was my day off so I had coffee with the lovely Emma from Life at the Little Wood (and yes, Emma is as lovely in real life as she is of the kindest, most generous, honest and beautiful people I know and I wish we got to meet up more!). This mirror selfie of us both is the only photo from the day. I'm a flippin' disaster!
And today, it's my cashmere cowl neck jumper with blue jeans and new balance trainers. I'd take a photo but you've seen it all before....

If you're as bored as me - hang on in there as the next post is me trying on lots of gorgeous stuff in my happy place!
