So, my 30 Days of Outfits Challenge is over…where I challenged myself to wear something from the recesses of my closet (that I had pretty much forgotten) every day, always incorporating something handmade or DIY into the outfit. I had a lot of fun with playing with my closet, which really reminded me that I need to do that more often. And to wear things I’ve made. Oftentimes I’ve make something and then forget to wear it, or I just enjoyed the process of making it so much, I never realized it wasn’t really my style. But that’s good – it’s helped me clean out a lot of items in my closet that aren’t “my style.”
So what is my style? And how many DIY items did I incorporate into my outfits?
Well, let’s take a look back…(handmade and DIY items are listed and linked where appropriate, from left to right)
It’s interesting to see every day laid out like that…It’s also amusing to see my garden and the Fall leaves in full time-elapse glory…and to see me relegated to my kitchen as the weather got progressively worse throughout the month.;-)
So what’s my style? I sure love black, and patterns that are variations on stripes…gray, white, pink, and blue are some other fave colors…I prefer separates to dresses, I love lots of crazy accessories, high heels, and posing with my legs crossed, staring off to the right…;-)
What does your daily fashion say about YOU?
Though it’s been surprisingly easy to style my outfits (and fun!), the sheer work of the photographing, editing, uploading, and posting an outfit each day was staggering. Total props to Jessica of WhatIWore or some of the people on Lookbook.nu – because to do this daily is such a huge time commitment!!
Because of doing this daily, this meant I couldn’t do any DIY’ing, and barely had the time or stamina to post any other content on this blog during November. Plus a lot of my other projects languished during this month, so now I have to put my nose to the grindstone and dive back into them. And there’s still a pile of DIY’s and projects I’m dying to get to!
So now back to prioritizing…
I hope you guys enjoyed this 30 Days of Outfits and inspired you to pull out some things in your closet you rarely wear and see how you can mix things up! (Plus add a little DIY to your life…;-)
Thanks for following along!
P.S. I know some of you really liked this…I may attempt this again in the future…when the holidays *gulp* are completely over with;-)
