'Cuz it's time for a RE-MIX! Oh my gosh, I think I might have set a new record for blog lameness. Yep, definitely give me that award. I crack the cornies. So the 30 for 30 winter edition starts tomorrow and I am already excited! I am a remix virgin (shoutouts to the rest of you) so maybe I just don't fully know what I have gotten myself into yet! As I was picking the select few items that I will be donning this month, my "right brain" was on overdrive picturing the various outfits that will come to life over the next 30 days. I know a lot of you smart little cookies pre-plan all your outfits for this challenge, but for full disclosure I really didn't. I know what my kick-off outfit will be (Tuesday- works for Color Brigade as well!) but that is pretty much it. Lots of ideas are swirling though. I think this will truly be an adventure and the good news is, only needing 30 items for a few weeks gives me more time to get the rest of my closet transferred from home to my NEW APARTMENT! Don't worry, lots more on that later!
As you can tell, I'm not much of a pants person, but I am definitely challenging myself with only one dress. They are usually my go to item especially for work so I wanted to force myself to get creative with skirt/top combos. Picking the items wasn't nearly as hard as I thought it would be, although I did make a few exchanges at the very end. Narrowing down my shoe collection for the month to just 5 lonely pairs was definitely the hardest part, but I think it is just going to make me appreciate everything I have that much more. And I am so ready for the shopping ban. I made one last purchase yesterday morning, but it was an apartment decoration/ move in present for roommate and myself so I didn't feel too bad about it. My wallet is eagerly awaiting the rest though, especially considering the rent/deposit check I wrote today. Kendi, you couldn't have scheduled this lovely challenge at a better time so thank you from the bottom of my heart (and wallet)! Looking forward to meeting all my fellow 30 for 30-ers in the next few days and definitely discovering new blogs to devour every day! Cheers ladies and best wishes on the journey.
