Day 143: This is it!

After 143 days, I have worn all of my clothes! If it's in my apartment and it's wearable, it has been on my body at some point since July 6, 2011. The project didn't take as long as I had expected, especially when you consider that the first way I envisioned the blog is that I would wear all of the clothes I could for a year, and then give away everything I didn't wear in that year. But I wore lots of items, whether I love them or don't know why I own them, or somewhere in between.  Thanks to everyone who has read along or listened to me strategize and analyze the project as I went along. I appreciate the blog comments more than you realize--I love learning what your favorite pieces of my wardrobe are. It definitely helps me as I plan what to buy next! A big thanks to Steph K. for being a big blog and real life supporter, who really encouraged me to start a blog in the first place. And of course, this blog would have no pictures if it weren't for my husband Dave, who wants to keep taking pictures even though the clothes I'm wearing now have been on this blog already (Day 2, in fact. I missed that dress.).  I know I didn't win a Grammy, and this isn't even your favorite blog, but I had a lot of fun and it is the season of gratitude, you know. So thank you, thank you, and thank YOU!

You haven't seen the last of me! I will be back when I get new clothes, and probably also when I wear outfits that I want to share and remember. I also have a few round-up posts planned so you can look back on my favorite outfits of the past 5 months, as well as the pieces that I have gotten rid of as a result of this evaluation.  Stay tuned!

Sweater: Banana Republic
Hat: Urban Outfitters
Scarf: Gift from Steph Consoli, from U.O.


  1. Congratulations! It's a great feeling isn't it? I finished my challenge a few weeks ago. I donated anything I didn't like or wear anymore to charity. I even got rid of a few things I did like but couldn't see myself wearing again. Now that it is over I'm still re-evaluating my wardrobe. Looking forward to your round-up posts x

  2. I can't believe you're done!! Do you feel a bit sad or more relieved that you don't have to post every single day? I'm excited to see what you come up with next!

  3. Congrats Lindsay! This was so great, I really loved following along with you! Please please please keep going, you have certainly inspired me to wear interesting things

  4. Hazel--that's great! How fun that we were both Wearing It All!

    Steph--Thanks for being, among other things, my most prolific commenter! It means a lot!! I'm kind of relieved for now, since I can still post whenever I want. If i want to post every day, I can! But it would probably end up more like other blogs that post 5 outfits a week so I could get 2 free days!

    Thanks, Laura! I hope I have done justice to your clothes, and that you are happy to see them loved here! It's fun to hear that my wardrobe project inspired you!
