30 Day Challenge Recap

day 3 // day 5 // day 7 // day 9 // day 12 // day 14 // day 17 // day 18 // day 19 // day 22 // day 26 // day 29

Here's a recap of some of my favorite outfits from this month. I really loved how this challenge pushed me to wear the dress in new, crazy ways. (Looking back, I totally should have tried to turn it into a pair of pants!) One of my favorite epiphanies was transforming it into a scarf. You can turn nearly any sleeveless dress into a scarf just by pulling the bottom of the dress through the sleeves. I'm already thinking up ways to wear my other dresses as scarves.

In other news, Anchorage was voted America's worst dressed city. For the most part, that's probably true, though I do have a little more faith in Alaskans than whoever answered this poll. It just made me laugh. In Alaska, you can have all sorts of styles in one place. When I went out to eat for my graduation dinner (day 19), my family went in jeans and sweatshirts. We saw everything from hiking clothes (aka backpack, muddy boots, haven't shaved in days type look), to fancy LBDs and red lipstick. We even saw one girl with a black and white dress with neon orange heels and neon pink and yellow earrings. So I don't think we're the worst dressed, we're just like the New York City of the west, we've got every style here!

But back to my main point. Haha sorry for that digression. This challenge has seriously been so much fun and I'm almost sad that it's over. :) I will be happy to do outfit posts on other outfits though. (I have an awesome velvet dress that's on the waiting list ... I just have to sew it so I can wear it.)

I just want to thank you all so so much again for being so supportive of this. You can continue to donate to the Batonga Foundation through the donate button on the left-hand side bar at any time. And if you just can't get enough of the 30 day challenge concept, another blogger has been inspired to do the challenge for the month of June! You can check her out here!
