30 for 30, Round 2: My Picks

The time has come: it's time to start a new 30 for 30 challenge! On Monday, I will be beginning my second 30 for 30 challenge, hosted by the lovely Kendi of KendiEveryday. The rules: I have to pick 30 items from my closet (including shoes, but not accessories or coats) and wear only those items for 30 days. This doesn't include pajamas, workout clothes, my work uniform, etc. Another big rule: NO SHOPPING for the 30 days. I'm making an exception for Black Friday and Christmas shopping, but besides that- absolutely zero shopping allowed. I completed my first 30 for 30 challenge back in August/September, and I'm excited to be participating again. At first, I was very nervous about trying it with Fall/Winter clothes, but now that I have narrowed down my 30 items, I'm really excited to get started! Here is what I chose:

Tees

tops and blouses

sweaters

button downs

cardigans

jackets

dresses

skirts

pants

shoes

Let the remixing begin!

*Note: My "Forgotten Five" challenge will resume in the new year. I did not, indeed, forget about it.

I didn't see you on Kendi's master list. Did you ever send her your name?

Wow, I think we own the same Ciao Bella boots! I'm also including them in my 30 pieces. :D

Desiree said...

Oh, I loove those tan Nine West boots! And I just checked out your "Forgotten Five" feature - such a great idea!! I love it!

Good luck on the 30 for 30. I'm participating also and I'm sure we'll all need the blogger support =)

So jealous of your items, I think they will be easier to remix because they are such good basics!

Hey! I just did a 30 for 30 challenge that ended 1.5 week ago, so I'm sitting this one out. :) Mainly because there is no way I can go for another 30 days without shopping. But it'll be so interesting to see how everyone else remixes! Good luck to you! And yes, friday night ins are fabulous!

I wonder do they sell those black dresses in H&M here in England too. :D

good luck with your remixes...my wardrobe is light since being pregnant so i only could come up with 28 items but i'm going to fine comb and try and get a gull 30 by tomorrow's posting!!

Do accessories count in the 30 for 30 challenge? Because I don't think I could do it without multiple pieces of jewelry to spice things up ;) ... but I could do the not shopping for a month.

Hope said...

You're so brave! I don't think I could do it! Good luck, and I'm excited to see how you remix!

Desiree said...

Those Ciao Bella boots are beautiful! They look like they could be vintage. You making me regret not putting my black boots in my mix.

Keira said...

Great picks! I especially love your two jackets and those Nine West boots. Looking forward to keeping up with your remixes! :)
