Happy New Year and a 30x30!


I wish you all the best in this new year!


Now to get down to some serious business.  I'm going to be doing a 30x30 this month. I'm pretty excited to give it a try. Picking things wasn't quite as hard as I thought, but I do have a phobia of wearing the same piece of clothing twice in one week, so we'll see if I can avoid this, or if I'm forced to face my fear.

Taking pictures everyday is kind of tricky, so I think you'll have to get used to a lot of indoor pictures and me getting friendly with the camera and tripod. I just didn't want to ask my husband to have to take my pictures everyday. He'll thank me later. : )  So without further ado, here are my 30 choices:
(You can click on the picture to view is larger.)


Polka dot sweater: Old Navy
Tan cardigan: Ann Taylor Loft
Striped Cardigan: Apt. 9
Black Cardigan: AnnTaylor

Polka dot chambray: Old Navy
Purple pencil skirt: Target
Print skirt: Ann Taylor Loft

Of the 30, 10 are items I've thrifted, 20 are not, interesting tidbit.

So what do you think? We'll see what I end up loving, and what I don't. Stay tuned tomorrow for my first look!

  12. A few of the items we chose for our 30 are similar - looking forward to seeing your remixes! :)

  13. I'm the same way about wearing items twice in the same week, so when I tentatively planned out my outfits, my goals was to make it so that nothing was repeated within the same work week. :) I added links to everyone's blog on the side of my page too...that was a good idea!!
