my outfit: 30/30!

30 for 30 Banner

Whew... THIRTY!

I'd like to thank:
  • the academy, because that's what the famous people always say.
  • my readers, for looking at my mug for 30 days straight
  • the Gap, Forever 21, Old Navy and Target for being such cool and cheap places to shop (I'm sure I'm forgetting someone here!)
  • Kendi (of course!), for challenging us to go crazy, I mean to really put our wardrobe to some serious use!
  • TULLE clothing that supplied a few of my items - a few of my most favorite of the 30!
  • my kids for squeezing in pictures and driving me crazy... even though they're sups cute
  • my chambray top who really pulled through for me, I give you the MVP award.
  • the rest of my clothes for waiting patiently - can't wait to get to know you all again!
  • my husband, for believing in me, or not.
Drum roll...

I feel okay admitting this now, but I didn't think I would get to 30. I wanted to quit about a bajillionity times. I'm glad I didn't. This Challenge was awesome, it really stretched me and I'm glad for it.

{HUGE EXHALE} Now the question is... do you EVER want to see an outfit photo from me again? Are you done??? Bwahahaha!

There will be more... I hope. He he!

Top, JCrew
Jean Shorts, DIY

Congrats on finishing the challenge. I have loved seeing all your remixes :)

I am almost halfway through with mine. Haven't really had to re-wear too many things just yet, but we'll see how it goes next week!

Congrats, I think the challenge was amazing and even more so that you completed it. even though I didn't do it, it really convicted me to use what I have and remix. Thanks for the inpsiration and NO not tired of you honey!

milk tea + polkadots said...'re finished! I still like this JCrew top after seeing it a bunch of times! Hehe.

Ashley @ The Hillside Home said...

YAY!!! Congrats! It's been fun following along! :)

Carrie said...

Oh please do! I love seeing what other people wear. I have little to no fashion sense so if I couldn't steal your ideas. . . well, I'd end up in dreaded mom jeans or something.

This is a pretty sweet outfit - a great way to finish to the challenge!

Sarah Lenhart said...

Congrats! I'm impressed...I probably would have given up. :)

But it was great seeing how many different ways you can wear 30 pieces of clothing.

Love this! Especially the leopard belt with the ruffle. It's a fun contrast.

Jessica Hills said...

I totally love seeing your outfits!

Hey Jill, do your stairs go straight with the landing or is there a landing and then a turn. If there's a turn, it may be tricky. You could stop the runner at the landing then then restart it with the stairs...not sure how it would look though. A nailgun, made this project a cinch and assured a tight look even with a pretty thick rug underneath. you should be able to rent one from home depot or lowes, hope it works out!!

Congrats! You did it and what a great outfit to round out the 30th day!
