Claudia Croneberger- Wool & 100 Day Dress Challenge

My Rowena Swing Dress from Wool & arrived in the mail yesterday!  I decided to give their 100 Day Dress Challenge a try.  Sounds simple!  Wear one of their dresses for 100 days and they will give you $100 toward your next dress from them!  I washed it in the sink, hung it up, and I was pleased with how quickly it dried!  Wish me luck!


Day 1

I was excited to wear my dress for the first time!  I paired it with leggings and a wool scarf I bought at a thrift store on a visit to Germany several years ago (it's one of my favorites).  I headed out for a long walk with my dog.  It was such a beautiful day, so we headed to the nearby lake.  The lake has a long name!  Hochwasserrucknaltebecken Sulzbach!  It is very beautiful- especially at this time of year.  I love the feel of this dress, and I was neither too hot or too cold.  The temperture outside today is about 2 degrees celcius.  I also had a jacket on, but I took it off for this photo.  I used a timer on my camera to shoot this photo.


Day 2

Getting dressed today was so easy because I knew I was going to wear my Rowena Swing Dress.  I threw on some purple tights, a purple scarf, and purple sweater.  I walked my dog then spent the day out and about running errands- Vet Appt, food shopping, got my flu shot, went to the post office- this dress goes everywhere!  I really love the pockets too!


Day 3

Today started out cloudy and cold with a threat of rain.  That does not stop us from going for our morning walk!    Getting dressed today was so easy.  I just took a shower then threw on my Rowena dress with some leggings, socks, hiking boots, and a raincoat!  I thought maybe I would be chilly with just the light raincoat on, but my morino wool dress from Wool & kept me at the perfect temperature as promised!  Today was housework day, so after our walk I just threw on an apron, some "house shoes", and have been cleaning away!  I love this dress!  Tonight I have orchestra practice, so I will ditch the apron and maybe don some fancier shoes, but I don't have to think at all about what I am going to wear tonight!


Day 4


It was a beautiful day, so I enjoyed a 6 mile walk with my dog.  This dress is so comfortable!




SCARF, BELT, TIGHTS, BOOTS- Wool & Rowena Swing Dress long. 


A friend told me how great I look today!  I told her I was on day 5 of the challenge!  #wooland



Day 6


Exploring a new place!

I arrived at Kloster Heiligkreuztal

for the Black Forest Quilters Retreat.

I usually over pack when I take trips because I never know what I might want to wear.  Packing for this trip was so easy because I knew I would be wearing my Rowena dres every day!



Day 7


In between sewing at the retreat I took a little walk around to explore.

Day 8


I stayed up very late last night sewing.  My pattern for this quilt instructed me to make 31 whole squares, 8 right half squares, 8 left half squares, and 4 corners.  I thought I would lay it all out this morning, but it was not working.  I have extra pieces?  No, the pattern had a mis print.  I needed 41 whole squares.  Back to the maching to make 10 more squares.  I don't mind, because it is so fun, and I love the colors!

Day 9


Back home from the retreat.  I washed my dress last night and hung it up to dry.

Today I have errands to run, so I am ready to go with my freshly washed Rowena dress.

This is me in my little back yard oasis.


Day 10


It was cold today.  I put on sweat pants under my dress to walk my dog.

Day 11


My sister sent me some red leggings!  They go great with my black Rowena dress from Wool&!  My dog is thinking, "Quit posing and lets go for a walk!"

Day 12



This dress is very comfortable for lounging around too! 

Today was cold and rainy.

It was a perfect day to relax with a good book.

I love Sutton Foster, and I love crafting, so I am really enjoying this book!

Today is also the birthday of my wonderful husband!  I made him dinner and a cake, but I forgot to wear an apron and got cake batter on my dress (too much to spot clean) so I will wash it tonight.  I just wash it in the sink with a little baby shampoo, rinse it, roll it up in a towel to get the excess water out, and hang it up to dry.  So easy!

Day 13


Me- "Want to do a magic trick?"

My Dog, " Yes!  Watch me make that piece of bacon in your hand disappear!"
