No Repeat November: Day Thirty, Last Day




The End of a Great 30-Day Challenge

Today is the last day, and I have to say that I really enjoyed it!!

I didn't quite manage to get dressed every day (I never do!) and neither did I wear almost everything in my closet, as I'd thought I might. But it was fun and it did serve a purpose.

I learned which outfits love me as much as I love them, and which ones I should probably leave alone. I learned that, in general, scarves and cardigan dusters will be my new best friends, and that the mirror in my room tells me lies, because I always look better there than I do in the pics my son takes.

Here are Some of My Favorites




If any of you participated in the challenge, how was your experience? Did you find any new favorites in your closet?

I've loved being here at this blog again this month. And I'm hoping maybe type 3 newbies will get some ideas from seeing a month's worth of outfits.

If you want to stay connected, you can find me blogging at Midlife Makeover.

Have a wonderful holiday season!

Love to you!!

No Repeat November: Day Twenty-Nine

Christmas Capsule

I wanted to take today to write about Christmas capsule wardrobes. I have been popping in every day this month, and thinking through my wardrobe (what works and what doesn't, what do I still love, etc.) but that will come to an end tomorrow, and I thought maybe I'd do a little thinking about what I'll wear in December.

The new outfit is the monochromatic brown with the red animal print scarf I got from the Dressing Your Truth Type 3 store.

But below are other outfits I will likely wear more of next month...

Holiday Capsule Wardrobe Ideas

Below my pics of me is a capsule I made this a few years ago and didn't stick to our colors, but you can get the idea from this, I think. I know some people don't like the idea of actually wearing red and green together, but I think it can work. I've certainly done it and will again, I'm sure.




Have a great day!

No Repeat November: Day Twenty-Eight


The Black Friday Extravaganza

Did you do any Christmas shopping yesterday? I try to finish my Christmas shopping before Thanksgiving so I can enjoy both holidays without any stress.

But that didn't quite work out this year and I was looking forward to being able to save as I shopped.

Hope you did, too!



Hallmark Movies

Today, as is true almost every Saturday, I am just planning to take it easy and watch movies. I might run to the store if I can remember what I forgot last time I went (LOL).

But if I do, I highly doubt I will wear that scarf. I do need to wear them more. They add a certain something. But sometimes I don't want anything I have to fuss with or hold in place. I'm sure that's a type 3 thing. :)

No Repeat November: Day Twenty-Seven, Black Friday Edition




Hello!

Did you have a good Thanksgiving? Hope it was wonderful!

And if you're heading out to find Christmas bargains, have fun. I haven't decided yet whether or not I will check out the sales, but I might head over to my mom's house and check out her leftovers. ;)

Have a great day!

No Repeat November: Day Twenty-Six




Happy Thanksgiving!! :)

I hope you and your family are having a wonderful day, with delicious food to eat that didn't exhaust you to make it.

I am trying to go vegetarian in my eating, so this will be the first Thanksgiving my son and I don't have turkey. Or, not at our house, anyway. I'm sure he will eat his fill when we go visit my mom!

Love to you!

No Repeat November: Day Twenty-Five





Hello!

Are you ready for the big day, yet? This is the day my son and I do a few make-ahead dishes we can get out of the way, and make sure we have everything we need for tomorrow.

But I'm always prepared to discover that we forgot something, LOL! Mostly, though, I'll be hanging out in loungewear, hopefully getting a good start on the cooking for tomorrow.

Hope your day goes well, too!

No Repeat November: Day Twenty-Four



Getting Ready for Thanksgiving

How are things in your household?

This is usually the day my son and I finish our homeschooling for the month, and then go shopping for whatever we don't already have for our Thanksgiving meal. But this year, we are a smidge behind and may need to finish up tomorrow.

Have a great day!

No Repeat November: Day Twenty-Three


Thanksgiving Week

It's Thanksgiving Week! I get excited about it for several reasons.

First, I get to look forward to family gatherings and sweet potato pie (yum!). But also, it feels like the last week of fall before I dive into Christmas excitement. So I wear A LOT of orange and brown.

Because once I start to fall in love with Christmas, I start wearing red and green and ivory. But this year,  I am in the process of creating a new wardrobe because I've lost weight, and this orange shirt is the only one I have.

Yes, that's a warning! You may see quite a bit of it this week.

Have a great day!

No Repeat November: Day Twenty-Two



True story: I once used this scarf to cover a table in my bedroom! I have a ton of scarves, but as I mentioned before, I hardly ever wear them. This No Repeat November challenge has really motivated me to wear them and boy, have I worn them!

When I was taking the pictures of this duster with my other funky scarf (it also covered that same table, once), I remembered this one and knew I'd want to try it. I quite like it, don't you?

By the way, pardon the iPad and mirror. I like to give my photographer weekends off whenever possible. :)

I hope I keep deciding to add a scarf here and there, once the challenge is over. Not in the deadly heat of summer when it's too hot, but during the other three seasons.

Do you have any scarves you haven't worn in a while? Ever covered a table with one?

Have a great day!
