It's been a few weeks of crazy, but now it's time to get back to business.
June 13th I started a little journey with hundreds of other bloggers-
30 days+30 articles of clothing=30 outfits
This was my first attempt at the challenge.
It took 37 days, a few pretty much repeat outfits, 2 replacement pieces, and a whole lot of patience, but I did it.
Are you ready for the mother of all What I Wore Wednesday posts?
The last 14 days of 30 for 30 and an extra outfit just for fun.
