Though sometimes it felt stressful to do the 30 for 30, I learned a lot through the process and gained helpful insight to move me along in my style journey. Taking daily pictures of your outfits is kind of eye-opening! It reminds me of how as a singer, the best tool for me to improve was to listen to recordings of myself, so I guess it kinda makes sense how taking pictures was so insightful for me regarding style.
My favorites are 1, 3, 12, 19, 28, and 29.
I can't say I'm proud of every outfit, but I can say I'm proud of what I've learned. I tried to do the 30 for 30 a few months ago when I first discovered style blogs. (I can't believe I've only been reading style blogs for a few months! It feels like it's been years now.) Anyway, I don't think I even lasted a week because I quickly realized my closet was full of one-hit wonders. I started assessing my closet to figure out what pieces I could buy to make what's already in my closet more versatile. I shopped with new eyes and paid more attention to basics and accessories and started imagining different things you could do with garments (tucking, half-tucking, belting, knotting, different scarf techniques, etc.). Yes, I started to figure this stuff out only a few months ago. I'm behind the times, okay peeps?
The fact that I could actually finish a 30 for 30 and not feel overwhelmed, fatigued, or fed up with my clothes tells me that my closet is on its way to becoming what I want it to be--versatile and somewhat efficient. But, I've still got work to do!
Now that I've built up basics and accessories, until the next 30 for 30 I'm going to focus on...
- Attaining more colored/patterned bottoms, particularly skirts since Fall is approaching and since I am just lacking skirts in my closet. I've been trying, but it's been hard for me to find skirts for some reason!
- Layering. The extent of my layering is usually a cami and a cardi or a blazer. I want to experiment with other things such as vests or long-sleeve button-down shirts.
Thanks for sticking with me and encouraging me along the way! Back to the rest of my closet, now. :)
