I finished the 30 for 30! I made it!
What: Shirt from Temt. Skirt from Portmans, worn backwards. Belt from Portmans. Loafers from Rubi Shoes. Tights from Myer. Necklace from Temt. Vest from Temt. (Not part of the 30 for 30 but a vest is an accessory, so it doesn’t count.)
Where: To work, then to social justice group at church.
Why: I can’t believe that the 30 for 30 is over! Today’s outfit is a great example of somthing that I probably would never have worn, had I not participated. I picked items that would show off my fun purple tights.
I’ve really enjoyed this challenge. I’ve learnt that I have so many great pieces in my wardrobe and that I don’t need to constantly buy new items to create new looks. (Husband and our bank account will be pleased). I’ve realized that I don’t have to stick to using an item in the same way every single time. Some of the looks have been fun and fresh, some of the looks I might have skipped, had I not needed to create 30 outfits.
But that’s life. My favourite looks were 5,12,16,19,22,27 and 30. I’d love to hear which outfits you liked best! Make sure to comment.
The best part has been following along with other amazing and stylish ladies, seeing how their 30 for 30 went. As I mostly read American blogs, I’m full of inspiration for autumn and winter. I can’t wait to wear short dresses with colourful tights and boots, winter shorts, felt hats, maxi skirts and anything mustard.
Now that the shopping ban is lifted, I’m only going to focus on buying key items or updating old items. I’m also going to op shop (i.e. Thrift) more and try to alter clothes to make them my own. And my lovely friend Bronnie is gifting one new dress that she has doubles of and some clothes she no longer wants. (Bronnie is attempting to not shop for 6 months. So brave!)
My shopping wish list includes:
A white tee shirt (to replace my old one)
A white cardigan (to replace my old one)
A blazer either in cream or black, I can’t decide
Pair of black pumps (to replace my old ones)
