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. 🙂
