30 x 30 | Day One

Decided late last night that the red polka dot pants were a TBD purchased. I'm swapping them out for gray cords, but aside from that I'm sticking to the plan. The items list is already updated so it's like it never happened. Without further ado...

I'm so excited day one is here!  So I have to admit...I struggled. I know, I know it's the first day but I started thinking, "Should I start off creative and save the easy outfits for mid month? Or do I start with the easy outfits and then get creative later?"  It's still undecided so let me know how you feel about having a 30 for 30 strategy.  Please tell me I'm not the only person that has a game plan with color coded sticky notes.

Eventually, this was what was decided on.

I pulled the tank over the oxford and wore it as a vest.

These are items 11, 12, 14 and 21, if you're keeping track from the items list.  Out of genuine curiosity, I'm keeping a tally sheet of how many times items get worn this month, just to see what pieces were the most versatile.

As you can see, I added some color - black, white and gray seems so wintery to me but too dreary at the same time.

There are some really fabulous women participating in this challenge and I'm hoping to highlight my favorite remixes that they've put together weekly during January! Stay tuned.

Linking up with Shanna from becauseshannasaidso and Lindsey from The Pleated Poppy.
Happy Wednesday!



  1. I have that same bubble necklace!

    The challenge seems great. I did 7 items for a week this past summer. Definitely made things easier! Good luck!

  2. Hi there - found your blog through the link up. Can't wait to read more! Hope you're having a happy new year :)

  3. What an awesome first outfit!! Don't worry, I have the entire month planned out, too...I'm thinking I'm a little too OCD but oh well lol. I love your pop of color with the necklace!

  4. Blog hopping - love the idea of using a tank as a vest!

  5. Oh my gosh I had the same thoughts about whether I should start conservative or creative! In the end though I based my decision on comfort for my first day back to work since the holidays. :)

  6. I'm also going to tally how often I wer a piece from the 30, I think it'll be interesting to look at when it's all said and done :)

  7. I so admire anyone who does this challenge, as I would feel too restricted since shoes and boots are included in the 30. I look forward to following your journey!
