Bottom Row- L-R; Day Six Point Five, Day Seven

Wow, I can't believe my style challenge is over!! I love seeing all my outfits put together!!
This week has been really fun and it was strange today to not already know what I was going to wear.
Being as obsessive-compulsive as I am, I had most of my outfits at least part-planned out the day before I wore them.
I have learnt a lot this week. I have learnt that there are plenty of things to wear in my wardrobe if I try new combinations, putting different things together and generally being a little more adventurous. If I'm honest, if I'd not had this challenge, I probably would have worn outfits one and two and then just kept those as my two outfits for with these shorts. It's really encouraged me to try wearing all my shorts and skirts in new and exciting ways, which I can't wait to share with you.
I think my favourite outfits are three, five and six point five. I will definitely be wearing these again soon.
Wearing the same thing ever day also really keeps you in touch with your body. The days you feel bloated are much more noticeable in the way things feel, this was definitely something I didn't expect to learn.
I also learnt the challenge of taking photos every day, which is one of the reasons why I've given up on my 30 Outfits in 30 days Challenge. I don't like taking photos inside and I think the majority of these photos are really bad. I definitely would rather dedicate more time to better, less frequent photoshoots.
Also, my camera does weird stuff. There is one photo in particular, I think from yesterday, where I appear to have no hand.
I have found that I really have no excuse each morning of "I have nothing to wear." This challenge has been a real eye-opener in that I realised you don't have to always be buying new clothes (although, I admit, a lot of the items I wore were new last week) to have a constantly recyclable wardrobe.
And on a lighter note, I found that my foundation really is too dark (look at the colour of my face against my neck) and that I should never ever put my hands in my pockets when wearing shorts, no matter how model-y I feel. It makes my hips looks huge.

What did you think of the challenge? Would you be interested in me doing something like this again? Would you do something like this? What did you learn? And which was your favourite outfit of the week?

I'd love to hear what you think :]]]
