I thought I would post a little about what I learned, having just completed the 30 for 30 challenge for the first time. In perfect harmony with my decision I have these pictures of me squinting. I might be reflecting really hard, or the sun’s reflection might be in my eyes.
The challenge to only wear the same items from my closet for 30 days, making a new outfit each day, was really good for me, because I can err towards the jeans and a t-shirt standby maybe a little too often. By picking only two very different pairs of jeans (and one normal t-shirt), I wasn’t allowed to fall back on this kind of combo. I found that I wore skirts a whole lot more, and I felt like I was actually more put-together than normal. I realized the true versatility of my favorite chartreuse silk skirt! I felt comfortable wearing dressier outfits, probably because I wore them with comfortable, more masculine-styled shoes and cardigans.
All in all, I don’t really think I will need to do this challenge again, but I am really glad I took part in it this time. I already feel like I can show my clients more options with fewer items now, and will try to be more creative with what I have in the future. But I went straight back to the jeans and t-shirt, didn’t I?
These jeans really made me want to strike some sort of a coquettish pose:
