From this challenge, I've grown A LOT. Some of this growth was totally unexpected.
These are some of the things I learned:
- In the beginning, I didn't really know how to accessorize. Now I know the importance of a scarf, necklace, or bracelets. I rarely wore any of these before, and now I see how much of a difference they make in an outfit.
- I wasn't too creative for the first little while. I think I played it safe, wearing combos that I would normally wear. But as I got further into the challenge, I was actually challenged to come up with something new. And I'm really glad I did it. It's given me a totally new way to look at my clothes.
- Doing the 30x30 sucks during season transition months, especially in Canada. I didn't wear my jumpsuit. Yep, not once. Because it was definitely not warm enough to show a bit of leg.
- I need to really consider layering my items. Towards the end, I struggled to make outfits work, and look original. I feel like I might have faultered here, but it's something to know for next time.
This morning, I woke up to an entire closet. And you know what I did? Asked my boyfriend if he could pick something for me to wear. I'm not even joking. I just didn't know where to start...It's so hard to have everything available to me again. Do you know what else I did? Went through all my clothes to remind myself what I owned. I seriously couldn't remember.
Anyways, I will have a new outfit post for you tomorrow, I promise =)
