Ever since I started blogging- and reading other blogs- I keep seeing this thing called ‘30 for 30 Challenge’. I may be wrong, but I think it was created by a well known blogger named Kendi.
Another thing that keeps happening is that I get asked a lot ‘have you had to buy a ton of new clothes?’ The answer is NO!
Although I’d love to- it’s simply not feasible or realistic. Of course I’ve picked up a few cute things here and there- but what I really want to do is wear the clothes I already own!
One of my goals of this blog is to show real moms that it is possible to look great without having to buy an entire new wardrobe. A few key pieces and some great accessories are all you need!
So…….. with that in mind and since it is the season of giving- I decided that instead of buying anything new for myself this month, I would try this 30 for 30 challenge– but on my terms!
Here are my rules:
1. I picked 30 items from my closet to wear over the next 30 days (I cheated and picked 32… couldn’t help it)
2. Shoes, scarves, tights and other accessories don’t count! Plan on seeing a lot!
3. White or off white tanks don’t count ( I consider this my base layer to keep me warm!)
4. For holiday parties I may wear a cocktail dress, which doesn’t count!
Here are the clothes I picked:
Here’s the breakdown:
Skinny jeans (Madewell)
Dressy Jeans for wearing with heels (Paige Premium Denim)
Boyfriend Jeans (Old Navy)
Black skinny (Gap)
Cream cords (Nordstrom)
9 Blouses/ Tops
So here we go! Wish me luck and feel free to send in suggestions or pictures of your own cute outfits!
My first 30 in 30 outfit! I decided to go with my Paige jeans, this shimmery tank and the off white cardigan. I’ve added pearls and snakeskin heels to make it modern and youthful.
