Thank you Kendie for the inspiration and challenge! I just completed my second 30 for 30 in 2011. The first was back in February, and was much harder than this one—mainly because I had too many tops, not enough bottoms, and threw too many non-mixable patterns into the mix.
This time, I had three dresses instead of one, meaning one piece could hold its own for a day or two. All of the bottoms (except for the reversible skirt) were solid and neutral and matched every top in the collection.
Weather proved to be the biggest challenge. I had to include outfits for cool temperature and possible heatwaves. We did reach 80 degrees for a day or two here in Seattle, but we didn’t experience the heat wave that the rest of the US seemed to be enduring. Overall, it was fun; however, I do miss my other clothes. I’m going to spend the next month wearing things I haven’t worn in a long time, starting with a pair of cute polka-dotted shorts I bought in Santa Fe.
Here are a few interesting stats about this challenge:
- Least-worn item: The green top from day 13
- Most-worn item: The denim capris (4 times)
- Number of times I wore boots: 3
- Number of times I wore my black Timberland sandals: 7
- Unexpected success: Wearing dresses as skirts
Did you participate in the challenge? What were your highlights (and low points)?
