my 30 for 30: 1/30

i'm participating in kendi's 30 for 30 challenge. i've followed along with other bloggers who have participated in the challenge in the past and have been impressed with their remixing skills, so i knew i definitely wanted to participate in this round. which means i will be wearing only 30 items from my closet for 30 days, and (trying to) not go shopping. that will be the the challenge, but i think i need it.

here's what i wore for day 1:




cardi: forever 21. top: mine. skirt: bcbg (thrifted). tights: target. boots: target. earrings: charlotte russe.

was supposed to have the day off and therefore have a relatively chill day and recover from a fun kayaking adventure yesterday (more on that later) and a super looooong week last week. my plan was to sleep in. i woke up to use the restroom and while checking the time on my phone, i had a voicemail from my coworker who was sick. so being the very nice person i am, i ended up going into work today.

i threw one the first thing i really wanted to wear, which was this yellow cardi. i like the yellow + grey combo, so i threw on the grey ruffled blouse, and my new favorite skirt, which i found at goodwill for $5 - from bcbg, tags still attached. SCORE!

anyhow, i waited til the veeeeery last possible minute to pick out my 30 items then ran out of time to post them, so here they are, FINALLY, in all their glory:

9 TOPS:
top photo (L-R): h&m, anthro, kensie girl, the limited (thrifted)
bottom photo (L-R): mine, forever 21, thrifted, forever 21, banana republic (crossroads)

2 DRESSES
(L-R): forever 21, cotton candy, forever 21

3 PAIRS OF PANTS:

6 CARDIGANS:
(yes, SIX. because it NEVER stops being freezing here, even if it's summer)
(L-R): anthro, gap, gap, h&m, wet seal, forever 21

6 PAIRS OF SHOES:
(clockwise from top):  target, h&m, payless, rocket dog, thrifted, target.

i tried to include items that i tend to wear a lot, along with some pieces that i don't wear very often but always mean to, and also tried to include a bit of variety - some fun atuff, some stuff that goes with everything. we'll see how it goes
