It took me quite awhile to finish my 30 for 30, and even longer to post my recap, but here it is! This time around I felt like I really got what the challenge is all about. Last time I participated was at the end of summer when it was hot and sticky, which made layering very difficult. The cooler temps this time made it so much more fun because I had scarves, tights, and layering to work with. I think I also chose my items more wisely this time; I wore every single item at least once (last time I didn't wear THREE of my 30). Here is the breakdown:
My Favorites: Day 4, Day 10, Day 16, and Day 30
Least Favorites: 1, 21
Most worn item: Gap skinny jeans (no surprise there), Ciao Bella boots
*What do you think? Do you have a favorite?

I'm really glad I participated in the 30 for 30 challenge a second time. It has really made me view shopping in a completely different way. I realize more and more what I could use and what I could live without. When asked what I wanted for Christmas, the only things I said were accessories. This challenge has taught me how accessories can completely transform an outfit. With well-picked accessories, you can stretch your closet further than you ever thought.

Days 7, 16, and 30 are my favorites, but I REALLY love the hoodie, because it's a really unexpected element and you wore it well. Also, scarves look REALLY great on you! :) Happy New Year!

Good job! I'm totally with you on the accessories...

I especially like day 30 (such a great skirt!), day 20, day 16 (pretty colors!), and day 14.

2, 8, 16, 30 are my favorites.
oh you asked if I had a favorite. well 4 is close enough to 1.

You look slimmer in the more form fitting clothes. Belting a long shirt helped too.

This is great! I've been wanting to try this, but haven't yet. I love your mix up!

Wow, I can barely tell you repeated any items because each look is so unique. Great job! I would like to do the 30 for 30 at some point but did not participate this time around.
