The ‘Living with Less’ challenge was inspired by the team from a New Zealand company called Little Yellow Bird http://www.littleyellowbird.co.nz/, an ethical clothing company that manufactures and designs uniforms. I wholeheartedly agree with Nicole McCallum (the original @livingwith10 queen http://livingwith10.com/) – there are a lot of environmental and social (and economic) reasons to take part in this challenge, plus I hope to raise awareness of (and challenge myself to adhere to) the values of slow fashion.
The challenge – what I coined ‘10:100’ – went like this…
Wear 10 items of clothing for 100 days. This excluded jackets (impossible to say what Tassie weather will bring, even in Spring!), shoes, accessories, workout gear (only worn for workouts whenever that happened!) and underwear (😟).
First day of Spring kick-off
I kicked off on the first day of Spring – Friday 1 September 2017 – my commitment was locked in by making it public. There was no going back without losing face! So my Facebook and Instagram feeds @prelovedclothinghobart recorded some of my outfit choices, and how I held up to the challenge. 💚🌱
