wardrobe challenge

I tried to get into a new wardrobe challenge, but I realized, I needed a few updates to get excited.  I’m ready for Spring and my Fall/Winter wear isn’t motivating.  Plus, I’m need to fill in a few gaps.  Time to go shopping!

To get myself going, I’m going to go ahead and plan out as many days of the challenge as I can.  I can also better see the gaps I need to fill either by shopping my closet or shopping at the stores.  Here goes!
