first out of the pile...

Right now, I kid you not, my chosen 30 are sitting around my dining room table, hung over the back of chairs and separated into categories (i.e. top vs. bottom). I will admit, you look into my closet and it doesn't look like I removed anything at all- it's still jam packed! Given that, it's probably a good experiment for me to be participating in the 30 for 30 Fall Challenge- live on the wild side and experiment with the bare minimum.

So as I start this fashion challenge, I also have a storage challenge: where do I put these clothing items so I can pick them out easily from the rest of my wardrobe I am ignoring for the next 30 days? Hmmm, let me get back to you on that one...

Yesterday I kicked off the 30 for 30 with a plaid flannel button up and some denim skinnies: something comfortable on the rainy drive back from my girls' weekend in Moncton.


Plaid top- Joe Fresh Style- Superstore (SJ, Oct '10)
Skinny jeans- Nissi- Pseudio (SJ, April '10)
Black flats- Aldo (Ordered online, Oct '10)
Jacket- Winners (Toronto, Sept '10)
Purse- Coach (Toronto, Sept'10)
Hat- H&M (Moncton, Nov '10)

You really can't tell in these photos, but it is raining in the background (for the 3rd day straight).

I was impressed with myself: for a girl who's just embarked on a shopping freeze, I didn't go buck wild with my spending leading up to it. I think I'm starting to feel wardrobe saturation...for now. Until next season when I'm hit with new look books and trends. All I bought while away was this grey beret for $12.95.

I did not include coats and jackets in my 30 items- our climate is too cold this time of year in New Brunswick that they are a daily staple. Depending on the weather on any given day, I may need a different jacket to prepare me for the elements!

I love your skinny jeans. I've got a bit of an obsession with skinny jeans at the moment. As in, it's all I want to wear lately!

Love the plaid shirt - and you could remix that with so many other outfits, too! Very cool :)
