15/15 | The Final Countdown


This was definitely one of my favorite outfits throughout the whole 15 for 15 Challenge...which is officially over! I know it took me ridiculously long to get through it, especially since I left you all for a week, but I've finally reached the end and I never felt better. Although sometimes I was frustrated and left stumped at what to wear, I definitely took a lot out of this challenge and it was a great experience. I've started to realize the value of my clothes and the benefits of remixing.

I was sorting through my clothes today as I was packing for college and I realized I have a ridiculous amount of clothing. Half of my clothes I don't even wear anymore (mainly because I refuse to part with them). I always tell myself that I'll wear it in the future and everything just piles up. I've already bought another clothing rack and invaded my mom's work room. Did I need all those graphic t-shirts with silly slogans and did I really need to make sure my closet included every color in the rainbow? No and no. Now I'm understanding the importance of quality over quantity. It's important to buy pieces that I can wear a million different ways, that fits into my current wardrobe, and that I can see myself in 2-3 years from now.

I'm still working on controlling my shopping temptations but hopefully when I do shop I'll be a little smarter about it. :)

So in other news, I got a hair cut! I'll debut it on my blog sometime (my hair in these pictures is still pre-cut as I took these pictures before my hair cut). I got about 5-6 inches chopped off and my brother says he doesn't see a difference. Boys. It's nice though, since it's a little bit cooler when I step out into the heat and my head is also a little bit lighter. Plus, I have to use less shampoo, which is always a plus! :P It's not much different besides that.


Today is my second to last day of work and Saturday is my last day of work. I can't wait to just move in already and get settled. The process of packing and unpacking is just a hassle. If only things could magically transfer themselves over and automatically organize themselves. While we're still working on that kind of technology, I better go pack some more.

  3. Major congrats for completing the 15 for 15 challenge! I like how you paired the olive heels with the light chambray, it's so classic. And all this talk about conserving the closet makes me feel like I should do just that, too...

  4. yay for completing your challenge!!! now we can crazy in NY hehe! this is definitely one of my favorites from you too! it's so easy yet so chic and carefree!! can't wait to see your new hair! i need to get a trim too soon! i made it a point in high school to have every color too (well except purple since i loathe that color!).

    reply to your comment: i'm so afraid i'm going to break down and wear these planned outfits over the next few weeks (i actually wore one yesterday but purposely left my camera at home...) and then i'll have nothing to wear to NY. so hopefully that won't happen. i can help you plan outfits the night before anyway! eek! have fun moving in and on your last day at work!<3
