Recap: 30x30

I'm super happy that I put together this recap. When I first started, it was time-consuming and I almost gave up. But then, I thought about how great it would be to look back and see the transformation. I'm actually pretty pleased with the results!

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 =)
