Wondering what I’m doing, go HERE. First week of mutiny was food, now I’m on to . . .
Summer of 7 and 7 items of clothing! What?
Here I’ve been patting myself on the back for the past couple of years because I’ve forced myself to change the way I dress. I’ve had temper-tantrums over ditching my high heels (please read – this still gets to me) and withdrawl symptons over giving half-of-my-closet away last.
Is that not enough?
Apparently NOT! No #BlameJenHatmaker seems to think we need to strip ourselves down to 7 articles of clothing and try to survive that way. Whoa – this is getting extreme!
So in light of this fun summer experiment against excessiveness – I will strip it down to 7 articles of clothing.
Thankful there are no speaking engagements this week or weddings, but there are meetings and appointments. To bad it’s not a week I could just hang out at the beach! But since I’m putting a suit on my list – I will go – maybe even a few times!
So, let’s see what we can make work here.
For 7 days I will wear in some combination:
-one bathing suit
-one pair of jeans
-one solid blue t-shirt
-one lime green undershirt
-one brown t-shirt from Gruene, TX
-one black Better Saved than Sorry t-shirt
-shoes (aqua tennis shoes)
What I will not wear:
-no jewelry (except my wedding band and my fisherman’s bracelet)
What I will not count:
-undergarments, bra’s, and girly skivvies because . . . well that’s just my business
-pj’s . . . that’s a little to personal to put here
What will I sacrifice:
-I will go through my dresser and closet and PURGE, giving to others my excess
-I will not wash my 7 articles of clothing this whole week (let’s see if I have any friends left after this one?)
Looking at the week ahead, it all looks so simple. I thought that too about 7 foods, but seriously I could wash my clothes every night and look fresh as new the next day. But what about my friends out on the streets and the children in Africa and the lady seven-miles away from my home and maybe even your neighbor who CAN NOT AFFORD CLOTHES OR TO WASH THEM.
It is for them that I go 7 days on 7 articles of clothing with no washing.
Just to clarify – that is washing of the clothes. I will be washing my body quiet regularly — I’m not that cray-cray!
How’s your closet? You got plenty?
Please think about purging this week and giving to those in need. It might just be your neighbor who could use a hand!
