I really loved this challenge.
It was difficult at times but I felt fulfilled to be creative in this way. It was a great outlet for me and, in the end, I feel much better about my appearance and how I can make a stronger effort to look nice. I don't think it will be long until I try this again. And I think you should too:)
Here are some things I learned and some new "rules" I will probably implement when I do this challenge again this spring.
1. Skip the weekends. The challenge doesn't have to be 30 consecutive days and some Saturday and Sundays should just be jeans and a T-shirt day. Especially during the winter.
2. Pick lots of shoes. I just chose four pair and it was difficult to work with those. Plus, if you buy cheap shoes like me.. I feel like, by the end, they were completely worn out. No way those brown boots are making it through another winter.
3. Good pictures go a long way. When your ultimate goal is to feel good about yourself, the pictures you have to look at and remember the outfit by can help or hurt some days. Spring should be better with more day light and warmer temps..
Yes, I cheated on the last day with some new shoes I'd been anxious to wear.. And the photo was taken by my 6 year old so consider the "tilt" artistic license..
I missed my other clothes... My Joe's jeans feel really good today and I think they missed me too:)
