One Shirt, 30 Ways

I just finished my #30wears challenge with Downy, and I have to say that this has been one of my favorite partnerships to date. It made me reexamine my closet and think of all new ways to wear items that have otherwise been overlooked in favor of my go-to items. It’s a little heartbreaking for me to see that first photo of Vester and me — it still doesn’t seem real. He (like Miku) always liked to insert himself into my photographs and ended up being the star of the shot. I can’t say much more or I’m going to start crying again, but anyway…I’m grateful for every photo, video, and memory I have with my perfect cat. He was the absolute best.

Sorry for that tangent. I wanted to have all 30 outfits in one spot, for reference and to answer the FAQ about where I got certain things. If they’re stoppable, they’re linked. See all 30 below and let me know which outfit is your favorite.

    I was really hoping you’d make a post with all your 30 Ways photos! It’s so incredible to see how versatile a garment can be like this. I really hope you do something like this again soon (even if it’s not 30 ways)! I need to invest in a white short sleeve button up asap.

    I love this! So, much inspiration in just one post. Plus, I’d love to do a 30 wears challenge of my own but I’m not sure which item I would choose.
