Wardrobe Inventory | 6 Months Without Shopping Update 2

Another month over, another month of my #6MonthsWithoutShopping challenge completed!

Just like last month, I managed to avoid the sales and stores most of the time. The continuing heatwaves meant playdates at home in the aircon and so there was no shopping temptations from meeting up in Westfield. Unsubscribing from emails from online stores has helped keep temptation at bay as well.

The biggest help in avoiding shopping has been the boys though! Their naps have gone from sometimes lining up to never lining up so it's extremely difficult to waste time online 'just browsing' shopping sites. That has been the major factor to make this month another easy month for avoiding shopping. I feel it's made me a bad blogger too as it's so hard to read other blogs but baby routines change so much, it's only temporary.


Two years ago I did a wardrobe inventory. I wanted to do one last year but never seemed to find the time. I'd like to make it an annual thing. In 2015, I had 101 accessories and 266 items of clothing.

Since then I have had many more declutter sessions, a wardrobe detox with a personal stylist and another pregnancy. I was interested to see how the count would have changed this year. The totals below doesn't include things like pieces I only wear for layering, pyjamas and loungewear.


Wardrobe Inventory Closet Count for 2017 | Away From Blue Style Blogger

2017 Closet Totals


Accessories:


30 scarves

29 bags










24 pairs of shoes

  • 8 pairs flats
  • 1 pair of wedges
  • 3 pairs of heels
  • 2 pairs of Converse
  • 3 sandals 
  • 2 pairs of thongs (flip flops)
  • 5 pairs of boots


Clothes:


97 tops, including

  • 15 fitted tanks
  • 21 other tanks
  • 24 nongrey tees
  • 7 grey tees
  • 9 long sleeve tops
  • 6 shirts
  • 5 camis

6 jumpers

8 cardigans

20 jackets, including

  • 3 blazers
  • 7 kimonos
  • 3 leather jackets
  • 2 trench coats

16 pairs of jeans

  • 1 set of flares
  • 2 printed jeans
  • 13 skinny jeans

4 pairs of shorts

19 skirts

  • 8 maxi skirts
  • 1 a line skirt
  • 10 pencil skirts

41 dresses, including

  • 3 wrap dresses
  • 11 maxi dresses
  • 17 office dresses



Final totals:


83 accessories
211 items of clothing
294 pieces


My wardrobe had 367 items in 2015 so 294 is a step in the right direction! I do try to share my wardrobe edits on the blog when I've given something its last wear and it is leaving my wardrobe. Sometimes I never give pieces a final wear and I don't like them when I try them on or I remember I didn't like them last time I wore them and so I donate or sell them.

It's wonderful that I've managed to reduce the number of bags and scarves but I'm surprised I've increased the number of shoes I own! I'm disappointed I have so many dresses, after I got rid of a few at the end of the Frocktober challenge. It's good to see I've halved the number of grey tees though.


How Many Outfits?


Since I'm attempting the #30Wears challenge this year I thought it would be interesting to calculate how many outfits I'd have in my wardrobe if I tried to get 30 wears from everything. Keeping it simple as maths isn't my strong point, just looking at tops and dresses and not outfit combinations:

30 wears from 41 dresses is 1,230 outfits. Almost 3 and a half years of outfits. 
30 wears from 97 tops is 2,910 outfits. Almost 8 years of outfits.


And I frequently think I have nothing to wear, wow...😮

If I was to just focus on getting 30 wears out of everything I currently own, I wouldn't need to buy any new clothes for around 11 years. Somehow 6 months without shopping seems like a very short time. You can be sure I'll be looking back at these numbers when I'm tempted to buy something, to help me stick to my no-shopping challenge for the next 4 months.



I really liked looking at how my wardrobe has changed in 2 years and if you enjoyed seeing it too I'll attempt another inventory next year. If you've done a similar count please leave a link to your post in the comments, I'd love to read it.

Back In the Office: Striped Shirt and Pencil Skirt | Asos Pink Singlet and Tartan Checks, Sarah Conners Bag

Here's what I wore for my first day back at work after my break:
Away From Blue rolled sleeve shirt over pencil skirt untucked office wear

Sunglasses: gifted Rayban new Wayfarers
Necklacecustom Cooper charm by Silhoupette
Shirt: gifted Target mint stripe shirt
SkirtAsos tailored tab front pencil skirt in grey
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs studded mouse flats in grey
Bracelets: the usual plus Balenciaga classic double tour bracelet in pearly grey
Bag: gifted Corelli metallic and white handbag


Sadly, it was time for me to go back to work on Wednesday. Dressed a little lazily by just wearing a shirt over a pencil skirt, and tied my hair back in a messy bun. This shirt is a Christmas gift from my parents, and it's so soft and comfortable! I'm not normally a shirt person as I hate ironing, but I am more than happy to make an exception for this one :) Will be good for casual weekend wear as well as office wear.

The bag is a recent gift too, one of my friends gave it to me for my birthday.


Last wornRaybansgrey pencil skirt, studded mouse flats.



Here's what I wore to work today:
Pink satin singlet asos checked plaid tartan panelled pencil skirt office outfit

sarah conners python bag
NecklaceHouse of Harlow sunburst necklace in silver and grey
TopAsos satin singlet in pink
Belt: Asos panelled pencil skirt in tartan check (new purchase, on sale)
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs patent mouse flats
Bracelets: the usual plus beaded neon and gold bracelet set
BagSarah Conners python bag in ebony


Despite trying to reduce my wardrobe this year, I was swayed by the latest Asos sale. 70% off, and an extra 10% off sale with code 'AUJAN10'. Difficult to resist! I bought a top and 2 pencil skirts for work, all practical purchases I easily justified, haha. This pencil skirt is super comfortable, and it got a lot of compliments today. I'm just trying to distract myself from the fact that I just increased the number of skirts I own by another 2 pieces, as I have no intentions of getting rid of any skirts at the moment!


Last worn: pink singlet, patent mouse flats, Sarah Conners python bag. First time I've worn the skirt as it's a recent purchase.

Printed Dress, Red Belt, Balenciaga Part Time | Threadless Tee, Black Skirt, Sarah Conners Python Bag

Here's what I wore to work on Thursday:

DressJeanswest 'Mia' border print dress
Belt: op-shop find
Shoes:  Marc by Marc Jacobs patent leather logo plaque flats
Bracelets: the usual
BagBalenciaga part time in black 2010 with GSH


Wanted a nice simple outfit for Thursday so went for a printed dress, always my go-to for office wear! Although the red in the belt doesn't match the red in the dress exactly, I thought it looked good enough.

Here's what I wore to work for Casual Friday today:

ShoesWittner 'Bolla' black bow detail flats
Bracelets: the usual plus Marc by Marc Jacobs enamel turnlock stripey hinge black and white bangle
BagSarah Conners python bag in ebony


Trying something a little different for a casual Friday! Tried to step out of my comfort zone a little and not wear jeans. Also gave me the opportunity to wear this skirt that I haven't worn in a while, and one of my many Threadless tees that don't get much wear. Although there will be days I fall back on simple highly repeated pieces (like Thursday's outfit), I'm trying to make a bit of an effort to wear more of my wardrobe lately. Doesn't make sense to have lots of clothes and hardly wear them all.

BagRebecca Minkoff MAC bag in deep purple


I wasn't planning to work from home on Monday, but Cooper got sick in the middle of the night and we had a very restless night. I decided to work from home to keep an eye on him, as my meetings were all teleconferences or virtual meetings. Thankfully, Cooper slowly improved during the day. Took him out for a bit of fresh air in the morning. As it was a little chilly for bare arms I added the scarf, added a nice bit of colour too. Did end up taking it off when I worked at the computer though.


Last worn: grey tank, skinny jeans, Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff purple MAC.

Cooper is acting like himself again so back to work with a simple printed dress for the office! Of all of the office outfits I wear, printed dresses have to be the most comfortable and appropriate for any situation. I had a bunch of face to face meetings today so this was the easiest option :)

BagSarah Conners python bag in ebony


Bare legs! It was predicted to be really warm on Monday, so decided to go without tights. Warmed up nicely during the day, and I didn't miss them much. So happy for Spring!
This shirt is the other pieces I picked up at the op-shop at the local festival a while ago. Couldn't believe I found a new Ben Sherman shirt in my size! Definitely a lucky find. Tried to dress it down a little and not be too formal by leaving it un-tucked over my skirt, although I think it would look nice tucked in too.


Last worn: printed leather jacket, navy and black pencil skirt, glitter flats, Sarah Conners bag. First time I've worn the shirt as it was a recent purchase.





Here's what I wore to work today:

Bag: Rebecca Minkoff Nikki in Silverstreak


Bare legs again today! This outfit is inspired by a lovely lady I walked past in the street the other day, who if she wasn't wearing this skirt, was wearing one extremely similar. Really liked the look of the plain long sleeve black top with the skirt, and was able to recreate her outfit for myself. Unfortunately, the dreaded knee brace is back as last night I managed to slip and twist my knee. So I wore my comfiest flats too.

Another surprisingly warm winter day on Sunday! DH and I stopped by a car show with my father in law in the morning. It was such a lovely day to be outside. The good vibes continued when we got home and found out that we won the video competition at Church Online with our re-enactment of the Lion King scene with Cooper as Simba!
It's playing all week at http://live.lifechurch.tv/ if you want to see him being a little star! The times of each session are available here. Instead of a normal church service, we are watching movies, so click on over and check it out. It's all free of course, and everyone is invited.
Would love to know what you thought of Cooper's video, and the movie :)

Chevron Cardi, Glassons Skater Dress, Heels, Python Bag | Blazer, Printed Cami, Black Pants, Sorbet City

Here's what I wore to work on Wednesday:


Cardi: JeansWest zig zag knit long sleeve cardigan
Dress: Glassons black cotton skater dress (New Purchase)
ShoesWittner 'Bloomy' black heels
Bracelets: the usual
BagSarah Conners python bag in ebony


Received this dress on Tuesday, which is great considering I ordered it on Sunday! I've been doing little bits of wardrobe organisation here and there, and it's highlighted how few good basic items I have, so I placed a Glassons order as they had a good sale on basics. I got this dress and a couple of tops. Pleased how quick delivery was.
Probably should have worn a shorter cardi with this though to show the flare of the skirt better, I just thought the print would like nice against the black dress.


Last worn: zig zag cardi, Bloomy heels, Sarah Conners python bag. First time I've worn the dress as it's a new purchase.

It was really chilly today, so it was good I'd worn pants. Came home and wrapped myself in a blanket, haha. It's definitely cooler. Tried to break up the very dark black outfit with some pink to be a little more cheerful.

It was supposed to be warm and sunny in Melbourne today, so a dress seemed like a nice idea to be comfortable for the flight down and for walking around the city. I ended up having to wear my jacket as well as it was a bit chilly, although it warmed up and I could put my scarf away after lunch.

Spent some time today walking around, catching trams, having absolutely delicious cupcakes with amazing company and visiting the usual tourist spots - I will try to put some photos up on my facebook page if you want to see. Had to take this quick one in the hotel's rooftop garden as I didn't have any other head to toe shots.

Today was a cooler day with all the rain so I dressed for warmth and comfort as we went shopping to find DH a new pair of shoes. Of course while we were shoe shopping I popped into a few other stores ;) Only bought one item - a cute polka dot skirt - which I'm looking forward to wearing to work soon. :)

My hair is getting to that stage where it never behaves - due a cut I think! And my skirt is creased from sitting down...should take a mirror to check these things before I take photos, haha. Still, things are going very well if that's all I have to worry about! Despite being on the list of homes that could have lost water due to the flood taking out the treatment plants, we've been blessed with a steady water supply so far. There are still people without power, and driving through the suburbs yesterday there was so much devastation after the storms.

While I'm back home and returning to an almost normal routine, there are people in Queensland still struggling and needing thoughts and prayers, and donations if you can help.

It wrinkles really easily as you can see in the photos, but it's so light to wear in summer, so I keep wearing it. And as a colleague commented today you don't often see blue and green together, it looks quite nice.

Nice simple outfit for a Monday. I like the studded pearl detail on the collar of this top, but I couldn't resist wearing studded flats too. I've been slowly expanding my collection of flats so I have some fun shoes to wear to work without putting too much strain on my knee injury. I have more flats than heels now, which is a good balance and very comfortable for my feet too! What's your shoe collection like?
