30 for 30: The Cliff Notes

30 for 30 Winter


Here we are! One last final look at my winter 30 for 30. This challenge felt a bit different - maybe because I had already successfully completed one {rather than quitting like I did the first time} challenge? Maybe because I wasn't as preoccupied and obsessive {I had multiple spreadsheets last time}? Let's hit the highlights.

- 30 outfits and I didn't once wear my blue jacket. Shame on me, I know. Lots of you loved it, but it looks quite boxy on. This piece may be going to get altered very soon.

- 2 other tops {green cowl neck sweater and black/maroon bird print top} only had 1 wear a piece. Basically that means I remixed the heck out of 27 pieces. This is nothing new, the same thing basically happenened the last time around.

- I love my yellow J Crew skirt! I had a few other "planned" outfits that didn't quite make the blog. All of which involved this skirt.

- I wore belts EVERY day! I didn't even realize that until I saw all of these together. I think that may be my longest stretch? Other counts: 8 days with scarves, 7 with necklaces and 1 with an umbrella.

- Random, but I did less hairstyles this time around. Let's go ahead and call a spade a spade. I was lazy.

- I started this challenge on 1/30 and finished on 3/3. That's 33 days {I think}. Not too shabby.

- Last by certainly not least. My favorites. Let's go with a top five: #'s 7, 12, 22, 27 & 29. What about you?

Pin It!

  1. Hmm, I'm having a super hard time deciding between 12 & 29. Colors in 12 just make me happy and there is something oh so European casual chic about 29. Remix Liz got skillz.

  2. I can't choose my favorite! There are so many good ones up there! I will say, though, that I am coveting that mustard J.Crew skirt of yours. I love it. SO remixable. :) Good job, you rocked the challenge. :)

  9. Great job! If I had to pick my top 3 favs i'd say 1, 2, and 5...I just love that bird print shirt in #5! I'm also a fan of the yellow skirt! I'm becoming obsessed with mustard yellow this year. I love it with navy. I'm actually wearing that color combo today.

  17. I really like #17 and #29! Way to go! And I agree with some of the other comments regarding the fact that I would never guess you were remixing the same 30 items. Impressive.

  18. 5,18,23 and 27 are my favorites! But you look lovely in all.

    Your wrap up collage may be the best I have seen! I agree, the yellow skirt is an amazing piece. I wish I had invested in one myself before they sold out.
