30 for 30 or How I Learned to Stop Shopping and Love the Remix

What is 30 for 30? Well the rules are easy, pick 30 items and remix them for 30 days. Accessories and coats are free, and I will be taking full advantage as well as posting tutorials for different accessories throughout the month. (Check out the fabric belt tutorial to start.) The second part is no shopping for the entirety of the 30 days, and that is a big part of why I decided to participate.

So why not just stop shopping for a month? I think the addition of being limited to only 30 items will make me really appreciate what I do have, as well push me to make new combinations and more creative. In a month, my whole closet will be new again and I'll have fresh eyes to look for new outfits. Also, I really like shopping and have no will power.

With that, on to my 30 items:

7 skirts


11 shirts (including 5 stupid work polos)


5 cardigans
1 blazer
1 denim jacket


2 dresses
(You know the peacock dress was going to be in there.)


3 pairs of shoes

  4. He he, I basically only wear my boots when it's cold. If I do a warm weather one I'll have way more shoes. Good luck to you too!
