31 Days, 31 Ways Remix: Recap

Phew, I successfully completed my 31 Days, 31 Ways Remix using only 17 pieces of clothing!

Here are my absolute favorite looks from the remix:

Lessons learned: I like the look of my cuffed chambray layered over or under another piece of clothing.  I also like a silhouette with a defined waist.  And finally, the more layers, the better!

And in the name of transparency, here are my least favorite looks:

Lessons learned: The black skirt is too short to layer over the striped dress.  When I don't feel like pieces quite flow together, I tend to not like the outfit.  I need to listen to my gut!

This is the first time that I've ever completed a month-long remix and I made a few general observations along the way:

-Working with a small number of clothing pieces actually made getting dressed easier!  Having fewer options to choose from made putting outfits together much more simple!

-I didn't have any trouble creating 31 outfits with only 17 fact, I think I could have created more.

-That being said, I miss the rest of my closet.  I'm happy that I'm not actually sick of the pieces that I chose, just ready to use the rest of my wardrobe again.

And finally, I'm personally curious to see which pieces I used the most and which a used the least, so let's do a little bit of math!

Items listed in order from most used to least used:

Chambray Shirt: 11
Skinny Jeans: 8
Orange Lace Tank: 6
Polka Dot Sweater: 6
Black Skirt: 6
Striped Dress: 6
Green Blazer: 5
Purple Cardigan: 5
Red Pants: 4
Blue Skirt: 4
Beaded Tank: 3
Grey Polka Dot Tee: 3
MSU Tee: 3
Navy Pants: 2
Ponté Pants: 2
MSU Sweatshirt: 1
Denim Vest: 1

I am not at all surprised that my chambray and skinny jeans got the most wear.  Basics for the win, right?  I am a little bit surprised that I didn't wear my navy and ponté pants more.  I suppose that I do usually like skirts and dresses better...which was shown in my remix!

In conclusion, I'm really glad that I completed this remix because I learned a lot about getting dressed and my taste in clothing.  I'm not sure, however, that I would ever want to go as far as doing a capsule wardrobe because I really like all of the clothes in my closet.  I will be happy to try a remix again but not for awhile!
