5 of 30.... ffffffive!

You know what five means? Well, of course it means that we are already 1/6 through the Challenge. Pretty impressive, huh? That's the good news. The bad news... I bought three new tops to help boost my wardrobe for this challenge and I have already burned through each one. Their price tags were calling me name... "cut me and wear me... cut me and wear me!" Am I slave to a new top, or what? I'm shackled I tell you.


Now I am not keeping super good count, but it's day five and I am pretty sure that I have worn these jeans three times. This is not so mix-y and match-y. And also, darn it if I knew I wanted new skinny jeans and didn't act on it. Don't get me wrong, I like this pair... but I don't know if I love-them-want-to-marry them. And I'd really like a pair of skinnies that I could commit to walking down the aisle in, err... loving for the rest of my life. But now I realize what must be done... new skinnies MUST be purchased once the Challenge is over. This moment of clarity was brought to you via Kendi. Thanks for the clarity, Challenge, I appreciate it.


Speaking of clarity and this challenge. Don't they say that when you fast (you know... no eating) that you are able to gain clarity spiritually, mentally and creatively? This is like a "fast" for shopping... once the Challenge is over we should have 100% clarity on what new items we need or don't need. Hmmm... I like the sound of that.


If you are doing the Challenge... have you had a moment of clarity yet?


Outfit details can be found here... Also the gorgeous necklace and bracelet are courtesy of Towne & Reese. I am absolutely IN LOVE with them... click here for shopping locations. Also, ALL of their pieces are under $50. Seriously, check them out!

And the best news is that the generous folks at Shop Queen Street will give you a 10% discount on any Towne & Reese items by mentioning "GOODLIFE" at the checkout! Now you have no excuse to not treat yourself!

SO adorable! I love that leather jacket, now that is something I need after the challenge is over! There's come clarity for ya! Also, I am on the search for perfect skinnies. It seems like an uphill battle...that hopefully I'll win.

Yes! my moment of clarity is telling me I need more color, prints, and fewer items. I will no longer buy something unless I LOVE it.

Love this top. Looks great with that warm cognac colored leather jacket. Yes, even though I am not doing the challange I am on a no shopping promise to myself for this whole month and I do realize it becomes more clear of what I want to get.

I absolutely love this look. I could happily wear a version of it every day for fall! The only thing I need is a leather jacket...

No clarity yet. But early in the morning while I was trying to wake up, I was seriously doubting my choices and wondering if anyone would notice if I didn't actually wear the pieces I took pics of. :)

All the items you have presented until now are great and stylish.I'm new to your blog and I like what I see.I like the way you put the socks over the skinnies!What do you think of my outfits?

I think my moment of clarity was when i realized that I need to stop being afraid of buying things that aren't basics. Trolling around on other Remixers blogs I've realized that printed and unique pieces CAN be worn in many many ways. Your adorable top and unique jacket today are prime examples! Good Luck on the rest of the 30 for 30 :-)
