I’m starting a journey on Tuesday, February 1 and I’m taking you with me... it is the 30 for 30 Challenge - Winter Edition. Kendi from Kendi Everyday puts for this challenge every so often and I’m choosing to accept. Right now I can picture you scratching your head wondering “What is this 30 for 30?” Well… here are the rules:
1. Pick 30 items or less from your closet. Shoes are included, but accessories and jewelry are not. (Done and done. I’ve got some great belts and scarves and being a Cookie Lee consultant, I have plenty of jewelry to accessorize with!)
2. Remix the 30 items into 30 different outfits. (I’ll try to complete this challenge in approximately 30 days.)
3. Don't shop for 30 days. (What?!? No shopping? But what if there is a great sale? OMG, deep breath, I can do this.)
So I’m a little nervous but I think I’ve picked some good items. You wanna see?
|1- Style&Co skirt, 2- NY&Co skirt, 3- Gap, 4- Merona|
|5- Limited jeans, 6- Marshall's trousers, 7- Loft trousers, 8- Larry Levine cropped trousers|
|9- Alfani 3/4 length sheer top, 10- Limited short sleeve button down|
|11- Talbots long sleeve button down, 12- Croft & Barrow 3/4 sleeve button down, |
13- H&M long sleeve oversized button down
|14- Merona sweater vest, 15- Joseph A. ruffle shoulder sweater|
|16- Merona 3/4 sleeve cardigan, 17- kikaPaprika 3/4 sleeve jacket|
|18- NY&Co denim button down, 19- Old Navy short sleeve button down sweater|
|20- Style&Co jersey blazer, 21- Gap cardigan|
|22- Mossimo long sleeve t-shirt, 23- Gap long sleeve t-shirt|
|Sorry, not fixing it|
24- Gap maxi dress, 25- Merona shirt dress
|26- Merona pumps, 27- Nicole ballet flats, 28- Alfani wingtip oxfor heels|
|29- Bass knee high boots, 30- Style&Co knee high boots|
The purpose of this challenge is to make realize all of the great things in your closet and to learn how to remix them in creative ways.
I really tried to look at the items and stick to a couple of colors for this challenge and I’m hoping that helps me to maximize the amount of outfits I can create.
I had a hard time finding a place to photograph the pieces of clothing to get the best representation of the color. I may be redoing the photos for better color and organization sake… we’ll see about that.
I will do my best to post daily so we can keep this challenge as close to “real time” as possible. Wish me luck!
