30 for 30 Challenge

Most of you are probably already familiar with the 30 for 30 challenge. If not, here's a brief description:
Kendi from KendiEveryday has challenged herself (and whoever else wants to join!) to limit themselves to 30 pieces of shoes and clothing for 30 days. As an added even bigger challenge- absolutely no shopping can take place over these 30 days. Although it is a styling challenge, it also really forces you to realize that you don't need to have a giant closet full of amazing pieces to look great.

I first took the 30 for 30 challenge this past Summer/early fall. It started out really well... but due to lack of planning and a not so strong will with the shopping ban I finished quite later than originally planned, and I also cheated quite a bit on both the 30 items and the no shopping rule. So basically, not as successful as I had hoped. This time it's going to be different though. I have 40 outfits planned out (10 more than necessary!) and I tried on every. single. one. Yeah, I may have overdone the planning this time around, but at least I'll finish strong, fingers crossed!

However, I am going to lift the shopping ban for one day- Black Friday. I've never gotten to go black friday shopping due to my previous jobs in retail, but this year I get to go! So, head's up, I'm going to take advantage of it ;)

  3. hi! I found your blog through the 30 for 30 list. I love the shoes and skirts you chose, very excited to see how you remix everything!

  4. Thanks!
    And yes, I love to mix everything... and on a college budget there are usually more low cost things. haha :)
    And that Walmart shirt I found for $1 the other day while getting hair stuff. I normally dont clothes shop there, but this ones cute... and if its cute, why not buy something just because its cheap?
