This was my first blogging challenge ever, but that is only one of the reasons it was unforgettable. Aside from that, during this blogging challenge I went through some major life changes. I went from living on my own to moving back in with my parents (I actually moved during 30×30, and only misplaced SOME of my items!). I went from married to filed for divorce. I began with someone else taking my pictures for me to taking all my own pictures.
And I started to step out of my comfort zone. My comfort zone is called JEANS. I typically live in them and own 4-5 pairs that are exactly the same. My early 30×30 was filled with jeans. And admittedly, I do love jeans but I’m really beginning to enjoy skirts a little bit more than I used to. I still have a couple barriers I need to break–more accessorizing would be nice, as would less cardigan love.
As for 30×30 regrets? I have several. There are a couple items I used only once (blazer, I’m looking at you), or even not at all (those ankle boots). You can view all my choices here. I probably didn’t need 7 pairs of shoes (only 5 of which I used). As for the 8 tops, I could have used more tops but I didn’t need multiple white ones. 4 cardigans was also an unnecessary expense, I could have made due with 3. I do wish I’d used my blazer more, but it’s one of those difficult items to work with.
Overall, I definitely feel like 30×30 helped me step up my creativity a little more (not as much as I would have liked, I did get a bit lazy) and allowed me to visualize new combinations with my wardrobe. I actually could make several more outfits just from this set of 30 items. However, I’m definitely excited to utilize the rest of my wardrobe.
