30×30 Remix Challenge!

Soooo, I’m going to attempt to do 30×30 Remix Challenge in December. For anyone who reads fashion blogs, you may be aware of this phenomenon already. For those who require a little explanation, it’s basically this:

  1. Pick out 30 items of clothing (just main pieces…accessories don’t count)
  2. Wear only those items for 30 days 
  3. Put them together in creative ways and post the pictures
And voila! I think this will be a great way for me to utilize little worn pieces (I tend to repeat things over and over again. Just click on a label on a posting to see what I mean). This will also help me avoid shopping for myself during the Christmas season, when I should really be focusing on others. Also, it will help me clean out my closet more for 2013/the impending marital move (getting married in March! Holla! Can’t believe someone would marry someone that says holla!). 
I read about the 30×30 Remix Challenge on Dani’s blog, so check it out to see who else is participating. Can’t wait to pick out my items tonight!

What I Wore: Wednesday, October 31, 2012

Happy (extremely belated) Halloween! I’ve worked at my current job for nearly 5 years and have never dressed up for Halloween, but day 3 of teaching meant that I still had to look reasonably professional. I decided to dress up as a straight-haired librarian. Who says creativity disappears when you get older? ;-P

Wish I had zoomed in so you could see my “I voted” sticker! 

Blurry-ish side shot

R2D2 and I wish you a Happy Halloween!

My librarian glasses

The boots look kind of purple at this angle

What I liked:
  • The blue and brown combo
  • This was easy. No ironing required but still looked pretty put together
What I didn’t like:
  • The shoes aren’t super comfortable. Then again, I taught 4 classes, walked to my voting location, stood in line for 20 minutes, and went to Walmart. The shoes may be really comfortable on a normal day…
Dress- Old Navy, tank top- Old Navy, tights- Walmart, boots- Hot Kiss (gift from future mother-in-law)

What I Wore: Tuesday, October 30, 2012

Only a couple of shots today because I was tired and felt frumpy…
Shot 1

Shot 2…clever, no?

What I liked:

  • Didn’t love the purple/gray/white combo

What I Wore: Monday, October 29, 2012

I’m teaching 18 classes today-Thursday, so there’s not a lot of time during the day for shots. Back to the dirty mirror I go…
Fascinated by my camera

Side shot + shirt detail

Another front shot

Hey guyyyyysss

A bit of jewelry

What I liked:

  • The whole outfit!

What I Wore: Friday, October 26, 2012

I really should take pictures before yoga class. My ponytail is not looking so hot…
Playing with lighting in front of the window

Looks like I’m telling the camera to wait

Side shot

New moccasins!

We had a Halloween party!
 Will was a zombie, and I was Marge Simpson…under zombie attack, of course!

What I Wore: Thursday, October 25, 2012

Hey, guess what? I woke up late again this morning. Shock of the century. I recreated an outfit that I wore on September 26 and swapped out the shoes. Sometimes it’s nice to have an outfit that you can just throw on!
Mirror shot!

Closer shot with dress detail
Side shot

Without the cardigan

Jewelry shot

A really odd shoe shot…

What I liked:

  • The whole outfit!
What I didn’t like:
  • Nothing (and I realize this is horrible grammar. Sigh)

Cardigan- Sam’s Club, dress- Kmart via Goodwill, leggings- Target, shoes- Academy Sports

What I Wore: Wednesday, October 24, 2012

This is one of those outfits that I threw on after oversleeping this morning. Oversleeping is kind of the story of my life. At some point, maybe I should change the time my alarm clock goes off and just accept it instead of dancing with the snooze button every single morning. Maybe.

This entry is kind of picture heavy today, which is odd considering I’m wearing a gray shirt and black pants and am not even particularly thrilled with it.

Looks like I’m punching the air

I liked this picture

Not an angle that I get a lot, so I kept it

Side shot again. I warned you I was picture happy today!

I always like these shots on other blogs
I feel like I should be in Napoleon Dynamite in this picture…

These are becoming my favorite black flats!

Shirt: Gap Outlet, tank top- Walmart, pants- Old Navy, shoes- Academy Sports
