steppin' out sunday {30 for 30 edition}

that's right, i've officially committed to Kendi's next 30 for 30 challenge.  for 30 days (starting february 1st), i will only be able to wear a combined total of 30 items from my closet (shoes included, accessories not included).  you guys, i am as nervous about this commitment as i am excited.  my main reason for taking this on is that i want to prove to myself that i don't really need a closet full of clothes.  i've been seeing a lot of focus on materialism in my life when it comes to my wardrobe.  yuck.  part of this challenge is to cut out shopping for the full 30 days, which, to be honest, will be tough for me.  who knows, maybe this will push me to finish some of the projects i've got going on around the house.

i'm also looking forward to this pushing my creativity.  so here's to february being a month of remixing.  please pray for my poor hair, as i'm pretty positive there will be times i want to rip it all out.  my goal is to pick all of my pieces out this week (after some serious consideration and lots of dress-up), and share them with everyone here sometime before i begin.

i promise the picture quality will be better than the following.  if we had gone outside to take a picture, a) eric would have never agreed to take another one of me ever, and b) my face would not have looked this happy.  in fact, you would see me crying...with frozen tears.  it's that cold.

shirt:  LOFT
cardigan:  thrifted, banana republic
skirt:  forever21
tights:  kohl's
boots:  alloy
necklace:  forever21
belt:  thrifted

  1. Can some of your stylish-ness rub off on me? Please? Maybe you can coach me..... :)

  2. You seriously are SO stinkin' cute...I'd love to have one ounce of your style!

  3. So brave! I don't think I could commit to a 30 for 30 challenge. I would REALLY have to look at my wardrobe...

  4. You are absolutely ADORABLE. That skirt is so fun! I just committed to the 30x30, too. Scary!!

    Kristine. Or Polly.

  5. GREAT skirt. I love the way you channeled that neutral vibe. And yay, you'll be doing the 30x30! I definitely had to put a lot of consideration into which items I picked. In fact, I made a list of possible outfits to wear - one focused around each of the 30 items - just to make sure that 30 good outfits were possible. It was a comforting step in the process for me; I might suggest that you try the same if you're feeling anxious about what's in store for the next 30 days. =)

    Anyway, good luck! Can't wait to see what you come up with.
