The 30 for 30 Challange

I ran into this challenge sometime last winter. The basic premise is to take 30 pieced of clothing (tops, dresses, skirts, pants and shoes) and for 30 days make a different outfit. I had wanted to do this last spring, but Wisconsin had some funky weather in April, and I didn’t get into it.

So this is what I’m going to do for the next few weeks. I promise I won’t bore everyone with a post every week of those outfits. So what I’ll do is put up a separate page here and update my outfits as the days go on.

This is the jacket I wore on Day 1.

So, first up, I’ll give you a short run down of my separates for this challenge.

  1. Jeans. Because that’s all the pants I own (OK. I do own two pairs of dress pants, but they are the most uncomfortable pants I’ve ever worn in my life).
  2. Mostly black shoes, a pair of pink boots and these. They are pink and orange and crazy. And I love them.
  3. A little less than half the tops that I have are cardigans/sweaters or jackets. I have a jacket obsession.

Day 1: Wednesday, February 22, 2012

Day 1 jacket detail.

  • I wore a pair of dark jeans, a fuchsia sweater, a dark 3/4 sleeved jacket and Vera Wang pink and orange flats. I had to take the jacket off early in the day because it was far too warm in class rooms.

Day 2: Thursday, February 23, 2012

Day 2: A light blue beaded cardigan paired with skinny jeans and my plain black flats. No realy imgination went into this because I do wear this sometime. I just haven't worn the cardi in a while.

  • Thursday I wore a pair of dark blue skinny jeans (which are pretty uncomfortable), a blue beaded cardigan and my usual plain black flats. This isn’t a really original outfit for me, but I hadn’t worn this particular cardi in a while, so I decided to add it to the 30 for 30 Challenge stock pile. It’s a very spring-like top, so I think it’s appropriate.

Day 3: Friday, February 24, 2012

Day 3: Friday's I have little walking to do, so I don't have to worry about my feet hurting me in heels. Today I wore a pair of lighter jeans, with a white button down and black wingtip-esque heels.

  • It’s an actual full length photo! You can get the idea of the whole outfit! I like Fridays because I can wear whatever shoes I want to (within practicality regarding the weather). Today I wore a pair of light/medium (they’re as light as I will go on jeans) Levis, with a white button down shirt and my black wingtip-esque heels that I’ve had since I was 16.

Here's a close-up of the shirt I wore today. Nothing fancy.

This shirt might not look it, but it is exponentially comfortable. It’s super soft. Usually with button downs or other fancy shirt I switch to a Tee when I get home, but this one I can stick to all day.

So, that’s been the start of my challenge. I’ll try to update the page at least once a week with a little description of my outfit.

27 days left!
