30 for 30 - Recap




I started with this:

And turned it into this:

Making 30 outfits out of 30 pieces of clothing isn't difficult. Making 30 good outfits, photographing them and getting them up on your blog is difficult. I don't love every single outfit I made but I did love most of them and I learned a lot from the challenge. I did 30 for 30 because I thought it would work well in combination with the clean out I'm trying to do, and it did. I'll update on that in another post. Overall, I'm happy I did it and I'm glad I picked several pieces I'd never worn before as it gave me plenty of ideas of how to incorporate them into my wardrobe.
I'm also glad it's over now :)

I totally agree with you that it is more difficult to take photos every day than it is to make 30 different outfits. I think you did great, though, and now you can say you have done it!

I'm impressed with your 30 by 30! You did a great job and I'm glad you learned something from it. It's nice to take a step back and realize how much money we spend on clothes and try to downsize!
