Here we are!  Recapping the last 30 day’s outfits for the 30 Outfits in 30 Days Challenge!  Can’t believe it’s over.  If you’re not sure what’s up, you can read more here.  But, long story short: I chose 30 items from my closet, and challenged myself to make 30 unique outfits for the next 30 days!

Thank you all for traveling along with me, sharing outfit suggestions, and offering words of encouragement!  This has been such fun, hasn’t it?

If you’d like to join me for a Fall Edition of 30 Outfits in 30 Days, mark your calendar for October!!  Details to come.

I thought it would be fun to do my usual recap, but thinking about the last 30 days!

Most Worn Item | If I was going on purely numbers, it would be the wedge stripes, at 12 wears!  But, to be fair, I had to wear shoes every day…. so most worn short sleeve shirt was my J Crew sleeveless tank (3 wears).  Most worn long sleeve shirt was my LOFT stripe shirt (5 wears).  Most worn bottom were the pink shorts (8 wears)!  Most worn outerwear (summer outwear, anyway) was the Target Navy Blazer (5 wears).  Most worn accessory were the striped wedges from Target (12 wears), followed closely by the flower necklace from Forever 21 (11 wears!).

Least Worn Item | I was SHOCKED to see it was my cream floral cardigan from Anthropologie.  I didn’t wear it AT ALL the entire 30 days.  I thought I wore that all the time!  Apparently not the case.  The cardigan was followed closely by the white t-shirt from Target and the striped dress from Old Navy with just 1 wear apiece.  Not too shocked about the white t shirt, but the striped dress!  Crazy.

Favorite Outfit | There are quite a few that I just loved!! But the official honor may need to go to Day 14.  I loved the pink shirt with the pink shorts.  The floral statement necklace looked great with it, and you could easily dress it up with the blazer and wedges, or keep it casual without the jacket and a pair of sandals.  Loved it!

Least Favorite Outfit | I don’t have an entire least favorite outfit.  Instead I have a least favorite item – it’s the chambray camp shirt.  I’m shocked I’m even saying this!  Even though it’s the exact same shirt as the gingham one, I just didn’t like it.  It didn’t look as nice on, it seemed kind of blah… maybe I need to buy a pair of patterned shorts and wear them together!

The Challenge Surprise | I think this is what a challenge like this is supposed to teach you, but I learned I can get by without so many clothes.  I already mentioned I didn’t even wear one item the entire 30 days! It taught me to be smart the next time I want to purchase something.  And if I’ve found a great outfit, challenge myself to make a few more, so I don’t get stuck in a rut.  A second mini surprise is that I love the brighter colors!  I’ve always loved bright, but wearing bright on bright was a new thing for me, and I loved that 🙂

Hardest Thing About The Challenge| Besides the obvious “making outfits towards the end of the challenge”, it was definitely just being comfortable enough to take my picture and put it out there. On days when I was sick or didn’t feel like getting 100% dolled up to take the picture, I still took it, and put it out there for the world to see.  I’m proud of myself for that.

Tip for Someone Wanting to Do Their Own Challenge | The easiest thing for me was, when I was up for it, I took multiple outfit pictures in one day.  That way, if I was having a super busy day, or we were out of town, I wouldn’t be stressed out about taking that day’s OOTD picture.  Plus, I could then work on the blog post in advance.  I just wished I had started doing that earlier in the challenge! I figured this out by, like, Day 20.

So below are all 30 Outfits (can you tell I got better at taking pictures/editing them as time went on??)

    Katie, I REALLY enjoyed your challenge:) I think you did a wonderful job pairing your outfits together. I can’t believe you have 1 item that you didn’t even wear! I think Outfit 14 was my favorite outfit of yours as well!

    Congrats on a challenge well-done!

    You are ROCKING those outfits! I need to challenge myself like that. So much of my wardrobe doesn’t fit 🙁 right now and so I feel like I’m really in a rut. I love dresses more than anything but I can’t make them work with breastfeeding, womp womp. Your outfits all look so lovely and classic while still being totally practical for moms!
