30 for 30 - What I'm (Going To Be) Wearing...

hello 
Yeah - I lost my mind and signed up for 30 for 30. If for some reason you're not familiar with it, Kendi's blog explains everything since well, she created it. Basically you pick 30 items, and that's all you wear for 30 days. (Not all at the same time. Maybe Kendi will do a challenge with that next...) OH YEAH, and you can't shop for 30 days. Brb, still panicking about that one.
More rambling in a minute, but for now let's look at the crappy pics of what I picked:
2 pairs of jeans
2 t-shirts
2 short sleeved shirts
2 sweaters
6 long sleeved shirts
2 turtlenecks (the one on the right does NOT match the bed. My bedding is red, that turtleneck is orange, the flash made them blend I guess. Idk.)
5 cardigans
4 dresses (well, one being that Express one we've talked about before...)
5 pairs of shoes

That's 30 right? Someone count. Jared was sick last night so it was a mad dash to try and get this done and photographed without bothering him since he went to bed at, like, 7:00. That's also why the pictures have August and sometimes Jared's arm in them. (I might have failed at getting this done before he went to bed. Oops.) Look, I did the best I could, people. 

This will likely end up a hot mess because there was no method to my madness. (Want to know how crazy this is going to be? I picked at least 7 items I've NEVER even worn. Oh yeah. This will get interesting.) I'm also not sure how I'm going to blog this. I don't want to do an outfit post, every day, for 30 days. I'm guessing 3 or so of these a week, so at least 2 outfits in each post? Hmm. Thoughts?

It's taken me a couple of weeks, but I think I'm FINALLY done with the closet clean out. Now - what to do with all that stuff? I'm thinking a blog sale for things people would likely be interested in - bags, makeup, nail polish, perfume - that kind of thing. Again - thoughts?

Phew. I think that's it. Time to remix!

Do it over whatever time scale works for you. Thats whats best, at least thats what I found. It doesn't have to be done in 30 days. Good luck. I am also joining in again this time.

I had outfit pics everyday and it was hard. That's how my boys got to be my photographers. My co-workers, too. Some collected a few days' pics and posted them all at once. I hope you have fun how ever you end up doing it! I'll be following and playing along.

Is August your doggy? Do you call him Augie Doggie? That's what I call my son :D

I may or may not have just peed myself. Are you going to wear the dog? I hope you're wearing him on your head. He'd make a fine hat.

AAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!

I just finished rambling my brains out about Tucker's resort line, came over here and damn near passed.out.laughing!!! If you fit all 30 of those items on + the dog on your head I demand a post. You will win that challenge. WIN IT I SAY!!

ps-delusion and giddiness has clearly set in. how the hell am i supposed to afford $3000 worth of Tucker??

this free bird said...

more importantly how in the sam hell are you supposed to only wear 30 items for 30 days. i mean it CAN be done (like take me for instance: i wear the same thing for 5 days straight and then really jazz 'er up on the weekend by dressing up once or twice. rinse and repeat) but seriously? My fave part is the no rhyme or reason to what you picked. Get wild. Wear two different boots at once.

xo,

Great cardis and sweaters! Ooh and the dog will be an extra special accessory ;)

Audrey Allure said...

Love the cardigans, good luck with this challenge! At least you can change it up with accessories (they don't count as part of the 30, right?) lol

Bruna said...

I was two months without buying anything. The result: I bought like crazy in the next month! But I'm sure you'll get it!

Oh, and good choices for the outfits! =)

Yayay - sounds fun! Looking forward to the posts!

Cathy Benavides said...

Girl you are so brave! The 30x30 scares the pants off me, so I tip my hat to you. Picking clothes you've never worn is a bold move my friend. This has the potential to be amazingly awesome or a hot mess. I'm rooting for you!!

kelsey said...

Haha--I have no idea how many times I re-counted my items. Great picks!

Isabel said...

Jenny said...

Can't wait to see how you mix it up! I'm not sure if I will post pictures every day either - I'm going to try and see how it works, but I may end up doing it like 3 times a week or something. So far so good in regards to the outfits, however by the end of the challenge I may not be doing so well - lol!

Taj Acosta said...

Good luck dearest! xo

Piece of cake ;)

PS - Looooove your OPI Black Crackle nail polish you layered on in your last post - gotta get me some.

Secondly, HEELS!!!!! OMG!!!!... oh wait, you didn't wear them out :( Oh well, still exciting ;)

Lastly, damn you and your warm looking weather! BAH!

Connie @ SogniESorrisi said...

I'm sure you're going to do great!

Orphaned Apparel said...

I keep telling myself that I'm going to do this, when I know damn well that I won't. Haha. Kudos to you and good luck!

Miss Caitlin S. said...

Nice! Good picks here, this would be a hard task for me I think because I dress so darn trendy a lot of time so it's hard to do basics like that... this will be awesome to see, I really am interested!!! :) PS since the dog makes 31, I want!

Anja said...

Oh. I am excited to see your remixes start!
I am nervous about the remixes as well and about posting one outfit every day (hello pressure!). I think the idea of two outfits in one post sounds nice. I might pick that up should I not manage one every day!!

a. harms said...

Good luck. You will love all the new info you take away from the challenge. Like, you really don't need that much in your closet and you will start to notice what you really need to complete your closet. It is very insightful. Can't wait to see what you do.

suzanne said...

you could pick a statement piece and show how you remixed it in a few different ways. that's also a good way to show how versatile a piece can be.

this is going to be fun! day two & i'm still excited! :)
