Crossing the finish line

I have finished the 30 for 30 Winter challenge. It is still quite unbelievable to have my full closet back. I have to admit dressing was a challenge this morning. I had planned to spend the day with a good friend and we wanted to go check out the mall. Yeah, I know, not even one day out of the shopping ban and I am already in the stores. I have to admit, it felt like a sugar rush, just amazing.

I want to recap the challenge and share some of my learning points as well.


Days 1-5

I had been following Kendi throughout two prior sets of the 30 for 30 challenge and thought this would be a piece of cake. Selecting some clothes that could be remixed and then going with the flow. Well, I was so wrong there!


Days 6-10

A closet full of neutrals can get quite boring. Even with a big range of colorful scarves and accessories, the remix needs a versatile selection of colors, neutrals and patterns. In general, my closet holds too many neutrals and not enough bright colors. When I will go shopping in the next weeks and months, I will need to get more color into my closet.


Days 10-15

When you do a remix, then you should definitely remember the season and awaiting temperatures. With my shoe selection, I hit the mark pretty well, but why on earth did I include more skirts and dresses than pants? I am really surprised that I haven’t caught the flu by now!


Days 16-19

I did pre-plan 30plus outfits with my remix pieces and even though I still had to check every morning which outfit would fit my mood, the pre-planning saved me lots of time. I used that time for extra sleep and to actually put some more thought into my accessories! Next time, I might actually do the same for my hair styling.


Days 20-25

Which one was your favorite of my 30 outfits?


Days 26-30


All in all, I feel great after the 30 days and can’t wait for the Spring challenge :)

I like Nr. 6 the most. Might be because of your hair styling there as well. :D
