my outfit: 8/30!
Today's outfit photos are featuring one of my favorite Chicago landmarks... the BEAN!!!!
While I was in Chicago I visited the bean with the kiddos and my mom. We had a blast at Millenium Park... if you are visiting Chicago, you MUST see the bean. It's whimsical and modern and bold and maybe a touch magical. It instantly makes you want to find weird bends in it and bend your reflection with it's mirror-like features. So I figured... what better way to take my outfit photos? So they look a little bendy and funhouse-ish. But that's the fun!
So the 30/30 Challenge blazes on... and I'll be honest. I am really liking it! Packing for a trip (this one to Chicago) was so easy I almost couldn't believe it. Also, I love that I get to have access to only my "favorite" stuff and no apologies on repeats - which, by the way, are coming! I strongly believe, even now more than ever, that if you have a tight knit and well curated closet, it makes dressing easier and maybe even more fashionable!
I don't think I have mentioned one other "rule" of the 30/30 Challenge. No shopping. Dun, dun, dun! But next week is my birthday. And I am in CHICAGO!!! Dilemma! So I have to be 100% honest, I have done some shopping... but the fun will be holding on to all of it until the Challenge is over. Because now my 30 pieces are set in stone! And for the most part, my purchases have been for fall. So it will be fun to break them out in 20 so odd days!
The outfit, yes, the outfit... the morning started off as cool and windy. So I was happy to have the scarf (actually my sarong!)... by afternoon it was hotter than hot and then for the evening I changed to jeans and the scarf again for dinner out. So actually a really versatile outfit!
