My 30 for 30 Remix Picks


Ok, I think I'm ready for the 30 for 30 Remix. I'm super nervous but excited at the same time. I purposely threw in a few things I have NEVER worn. They literally have tags still on them. That's sad. And they are super cute pieces, so what's my problem? Hopefully I'm not the only one out there that buys something cute in the store and then lets it sit in her closet, not knowing what to do with it.

I think that's part of the point of this challenge though. To see what you can do with pieces you already have and to coordinate new pieces into that mix that you might not have originally paired with something.

I've spent the last 2 days already creating and writing down all 30 outfits. After all that work (and believe me, it was work), I feel as though I'm already sick of wearing them, haha! When I started taking picture of all the pieces this morning, I realized that I had 2 blue tees picked out. So, after already writing down 30 outfits, I changed a blue tee out for the purple floral button down shirt. I think the button down will work with several items, though, so I know I made the right decision there.

Maybe I also bought the teal heels you'll see below, right after signing up for the remix challenge. Hey, I might as well get to do some shopping before it starts.

Here are the items I will be wearing for the next 30 days!

I think my husband is already getting sick of me talking about this, poor guy. I mean, all I've spoken of in the past 2 days is my clothing. Not the most fun conversation for him. When I first told him about it, he had a lot of input. He even said I was cheating by trying on an outfit before I picked out all 30 pieces! Talk about keeping me in line!

A friend of mine is into photography, so I challenged her to take pictures of me in my 30 outfits for the next month. It also helps that we work at the same company and live close to each other. Thank you ahead of time for your help, Tami!

So tomorrow will be Outfit #1 of 30. Stay tuned for some exciting (and possibly strange) outfits.
