30 Days Later . . .

Last Monday my 30 Day Challenge ended!  Here are the rest of the outfits.

Some days I forgot to take pictures so I would just take two the next day, and somewhere along the way I must have miscounted, so you all get a bonus outfit!

I had to include Gwen in one of these, so I dressed her up in her matching skinnies for the day!  

You know how when you wear a coordinating outfit with your kids everyone seems to point it out, and then you just kind of laugh and say "Oh yeah, we do match!" because you feel a little awkward admitting you planned it?  No, that's just me?  Well, I decided to change things up and readily admitted that I planned for Gwen and me to match, and all the teenage girls and sweet old ladies at the store thought it was great!  

Anyway, here is what I learned.

-I really can do a lot more with my clothes, and it's not as hard as I thought it would be.  I didn't have too much trouble coming up with outfits, except for the last few days (hence why a couple of the outfits are a little too similar).  I'm thinking if I ever do this challenge again I'll include shoes though, just to make it a little more challenging.

-Accessories really are important.  They are the main way you can change an outfit up.  I think I need to invest in more scarves.

-I really do like my clothes.  I liked everything I picked to be part of the challenge, but after I was done I looked at my clothes and felt like I had so many options!  I really do have a lot of nice stuff, and I think I can think of more ways to wear what I have now.

-I probably could have less stuff.  I've been systematically cleaning things out the last few months, because I had so much that I just didn't wear anymore, but I feel like I still have a lot.  I think I'll be purging again at the end of summer.  If I don't wear something all season, there really is no need to keep it.

This was a really fun experiment overall, and I'm glad I tried it!


Note: Several of you asked about that green polka dot shirt I wore in some of my outfits in my last post - I got it at Forever 21 on clearance. I think it was suppose to come with a belt, but I like it better without one anyway!  Let me know if you want to know where I got anything else!

this is amazing! you look absolutely adorable and I love your style! I kind of feel like I have no style--that I'm all over the place! But I love that you have so many staples that look adorable mixed & matched with each other.

I love your style. You did such a great job with the 30x30! I just did it this past month (with shoes!). It's a fun challenge. I love how you shared what you learned. It's a mazing how versatile your wardrobe becomes with some creativity. It will be neat to see if you do the challenge again with shoes! ~ Naomi
