the next time you see me... (details on the 30/30)

Woo hoo! Party time! I am SO geeked about this go round of the 30/30 Challenge (if you want details, go here!). I think having one under my belt helps and also after I chose the pieces I realized that I really, truly loved each and every piece that I chose (minus some new jeans I would like... but I can deal).

Shall we take a peep at the 30? Let's! Drum roll...

I was going to do a run down of some of the pieces and how/why I chose them, etc... but I think I will just chat about that as I post outfits. Including what I consider almost a shocking decision: I only included FOUR pairs of shoes. But I have reasoning and thoughts on all of it and I'll let you know as I go along. I will also chat briefly about new items I bought specifically before the challenge to spruce things up. Any guesses on what's new or how much I spent? I'll dish on it all.

Also, PLEASE NOTE: this will serve as the master link list for all my outfits. I WILL not be linking individual items in my posts for the Challenge. But I will help ya' out and link back to this page if you want shopping details.

Stay tuned on Monday for my first outfit! geeee!!!

I like your choices. I'm another neutrals girl, but I like that you've included a few pops of color. I'm playing the at-home version (I don't blog) and still trying to decide on my items. I'm having a real hard time trimming down the shoes! I'll be interested in to hear more about your thought process on this.

I am loving the brown boots and the adorable faux fur vest you threw in the mix. Can't wait to see how you remix all the items - Katy

Daphne said...

Very nice picks and a great presentation on the garment rack. I am going to guess it was the faux fur vest, the grey shrug and the animal print flats as your new pieces.

Michelle said...
