It's time for the Fall 30x30 challenge! Warning: This post got really wordy. Feel free to skim.
I decided to participate in another 30x30 challenge. I don't think I explained it very well last time, but basically you pick 30 items of clothing and you mix and match those to create 30 different outfits. It ended up being more challenging than I thought back in May, but I loved packing for my trip using only those items. We're moving this month so it will be nice to know what items I need to leave out of the boxes. All the rest can go! Except one pair of boots I packed up already I want to use this month so they'll probably show up towards the end of the month.
So look, I'm not a big fan of having a ton of pictures of myself on my blog. But that's the best way to show you what I'm wearing so. . . there you have it. I know I'm not a fashionista (despite having it embroidered on the back of my Student Gov't sweater when I was a teacher. Let's just say I was a much better dresser in those days, plus I taught fashion so it made sense) so no worries if you don't want to look at my "fashion" posts. You can skip them, I wont be hurt. :)
Unlike most of the girls doing this challenge, I don't really think about the items I pick, I just pick 30 things I love to wear, try to balance out the tops and the bottoms and hope I can make it to the end! That's the fun of it for me.
Sweaters: This is the main reason I agreed to do this again, I have so many sweaters! That didn't stop me from buying two new ones on sale on H&M's website. So I don't even know if they'll look good on me! Risky.
Tops: A lot of these are layering tops. I actually plan to use my white layering tops too, but I didn't include them because they're BORING plus I don't know how much action they will really get (hey it's not cheating, Aubrey doesn't even include shoes!)
Skirts: I thought about choosing more skirts, but since I pretty much only wear them to church on Sundays (I change diapers on the floor and skirts make that difficult!) I just stuck with two.
Dresses: Now short dresses with leggings, those I can wear any day because the leggings give me a little more modesty and the dresses are loose and give me more range of motion.
Pants: I'm including a pair of leggings in this category because they're thick and can be worn as pants (yes, yes, only with LONG shirts, I know) but I'll probably use other leggings this month too, just more like tights. (if any of that makes sense. . . )
Shoes: Not everyone includes shoes, but I think it's part of the fun. I pretty much live in my boots in November, but I included my Toms and some heels in case I wanted to change things up.
I have a few items missing. I haven't had time to do all of my fall shopping so I haven't been able to pick my last few items, plus a pair of shoes that I packed in boxes before deciding to do this challenge.
Here are the other ladies participating this month!
