30for30

Starting today I'm participating in  Kendi's 30 for 30 winter edition. If you never heard of it, just click on the image above, but basically you have to choose 30 items from your closet and remix those into 30 different outfits in the next 30 days! Best (or worst :) of all, you're not allowed to buy any clothing items in these 30 days! Probably this is the worst time of my life to start this as 
a, I have my clothes in 4 different apartments right now
b, I'll be moving in 12 days
but I thought what the hell... I'll give it  try anyway.  :) Once I chose all my items I realized something shocking! I don't think I've worn so many clothes in 30 days for a long time! It's almost sad to admit that I spend most of my days in PJs and sweatpants (like right now :) and I only dress up maybe 3-4 times a week. I realized something even more shocking though... my complete inability to count!!! I have 2 economist diplomas, both of my parents are mathematics teachers and still... I choose my 30 items, counted them 5 times, took (horrible) pictures of everything and when I finally put the collage together I saw that my 30 is actually 27. What the...???? Anyway.... it will just make things that much more interesting... I have 3 jolly jokers for the next 30 days! :) 

Are you joining as well???

I chose:
- 3 blazers
- 8 shirts
- 6 basic shirts
- 3 skirts
- 2 shorts
- 2 leggings
- 3 pair of shoes

I'm doing the challenge as well! I'm a little behind though, need to go home tonight, pick my 30, photograph, make a post (why didn't I do it this past weekend? ugh homework!) I'm not sure how great i'll do but I'm really excited to try! :)

Jenny said...

wow, that would be hard, especially since I have work clothes and non-work clothes.

Good luck!

I'm attempting the challenge, which is going to be interesting seeing as I am NOT a fashion blogger! I'm a little nervous, but my wardrobe (and my wallet) seriously need this.

A La Mode et Plus! said...

Yay! So glad you are joining the fun. I am so impressed you can do just three pairs of shoes!

Miranda said...

Great picks, I'm excited for this. I'm posting my picks tonight.

Vera said...

Tazz Gault said...

Gosh you're so brave! I really couldn't do that...I have such a fear of people recognising that I wore something the last time they saw me or something, how lame am I?! I always wear something, other than jeans/leggings etc, a week + again later so that people forget I own it, and then people comment all over again! Gosh, I do worry myself :)

Great post though, good luck!

This is such a great challenge! I end up wearing the same things over and over again, this would be a great way to mix it up without spending more money:-)

Charles said...

good luck with the challenge! I'm so not ready for this any time soon, I think maybe I would do it when it's warmer out? I dunno. One day.
Can't wait to see how you do!

Oh my gosh, GOOD LUCK! I thought about doing this challenge for a hot second and then decided against it. I wouldn't be able to last but a week :(

However, your picks are promising! I can't wait to see how this goes! :D

NO PANTS?!?! hahah i'd do the challenge, but like you, we're moving in two weeks, everything's in shambles at our current apt, and as we've had some sort of biting clothes bug infestation, i've been wearing the same sets of maybe 10 items for a month now already. project just doesn't appeal to me at this (CRAZY) moment!
on a high note: exterminator tomorrow - here's hoping 3rd time's a charm!

Nori said...

:) it is much more difficult as it seems at the beginning... i made it to 23.. :))) xxx Nori

Anait said...
