And you know what? I'm SO GLAD it's over.
Here's what I learned from doing this challenge: There are some very good reasons I don't wear these things very often (except for the pants, that's mostly just laziness).

I also learned that I have no desire whatsoever to attempt a capsule wardrobe again any time soon! I really admire people who do this, and I understand the point of it and the benefits of it. But it's just not my style. So instead, I'm checking out some fashion challenges for April — you can follow along via Instagram (I'm @breadandrosesvintage).
