30 for 30 Day 30: Challenge Completed!

shirt & scarf: Old Navy, vest & jeans: Target, boots: Clothes Mentor

Well that's it - the 30 for 30 is done! During the last week of the challenge we saw temperatures in the 60s, all the way down to temperatures hovering around 20 degrees so I had to pout and go for something really cozy for day 30. Now for the recap...


 
 
 



What I learned:

- I really like all of my clothes. :)

- Less can be better. Even though I really like all of my clothes, I could get along just fine with probably only about half of them. Thankfully I got in the mood to purge, and in the middle of the challenge donated a lot of things I finally made myself realize that I just don't wear enough. The goal is to make myself be more selective when shopping in the future.

- I felt like my style changes more drastically than I would've thought between work and weekend. Maybe the fact that it's winter made me want to do nothing but wear huge, warm sweaters on the weekend (of which I failed to include any of), but I found myself avoiding the cute sweaters I wear so much during the week, and inside choosing to wear the long sleeve baggier shirts over and over again on the weekend. 

What surprised me:

- I didn't feel as if I needed to "re-mix my wardrobe" anymore than I usually do, and I'm happy about that. I think I try to make each and every outfit one I've never worn before, even if the only change from the last time I wore it is the accessories, or maybe the shoes. I did however, learn a ton from the other ladies who participated in the challenge! Dresses as shirts? Dalmation print and stripes? (I'm talking about you, Nicole!) I loved seeing everyone's creativity come through during the challenge and it's definitely inspired me to try some things that will make my closet even more versatile!

Thanks so much to Sam for hosting and to everyone who participated! I had so much fun the past month "hanging out" with you gals! :)

  6. Wow, great job! I don't know that I could pull off doing the 30 x 30. I'm not much of an outfit planner except for vacations and holidays! You did amazing though!
