I’ve never really considered myself a competitive person, it’s just not in my blood…Sure in 2006-2007 we had a family solitaire competition aiming for better times/scores to become the family solitaire champion. And yes, occasionally Mum and Dad have curry cook offs where they invite unsuspecting guests over to judge who has won (for a short time this also applied to jamming before we ran out of jars) and perhaps Dad and I have five year fitness competition which hasn’t really motivated either of us… but I’m really not that competitive.
That’s why this morning (day 12/80) when my mum noticed that I have yet to repeat an outfit during my internship, I didn’t think about making a game out of it… until Dad challenged me to wear a different outfit for the entire 80 days…. well Dad, CHALLENGE ACCEPTED.
Now, I know when a lot of you think of me, fashion is probably not high on your list of things that are Lauren- though if you think of me at all I’m pretty flattered, so thank you. But rest assured this will be done the Lauren way. There will be no pictures of me traipsing around Europe before I head off to work, no beautifully lit studio shots – most likely my clothes will be artfully draped on the floor or tables around the house.
I’m no fashionista but when you have a summer filled with study, interning and helping your boyfriend move interstate, it’s nice to have a few things distracting you. I know some of you are thinking but what about operation lunch box – have I forgotten my first challenge for myself? No, I totally haven’t. This week I’m going to do a fab recap on some lunches most (/all) of which contain instant cous cous (wooo!) so if you’re not into FAASHUN you can still read about my lunch, recaps, and crafts.
For the most part I will attempt to just have different combinations of my own clothes but I have enlisted the help of some friends to expand my wardrobe should I have to…
So follow my instagram to see all my fabulous outfits and awkward selfies from tomorrow! Here we go!
