30 for 30--my pieces

For the next six weeks, I'll be taking part in Kendi's 30 for 30 challenge. You can find all the rules here, but the basics are: 30 items of clothing, 30 different outfits, no shopping until I've worn them all. Accessories aren't part of the 30 because, as Kendi wisely says, accessories are "the chips and salsa of a meal, those calories don't really count." So here are my 30 (excluding two pieces I ordered from Ruche last week which I plan to include once they arrive, I swear it's not cheating).

30 for 30

clockwise from top left: striped tee (target), black tank (forever21), gray tee (american apparel), striped button-down (forever21), white tank (forever21), white tee (j crew), checkered button down (thrifted), colored blouse (anthro), coming soon: this tank from ruche

30 for 30

clockwise from top left: floral skirt (DIY), white skirt (old navy), black ruffled skirt (forever21), sailboat skirt (old navy), yellow linen skirt (DIY), orange skirt (american apparel)

30 for 30

from left: purple dress (anthro), gray dress (loft), white dress (banana republic), navy dress (american apparel), coming soon: this dress from ruche

30 for 30

from left: cutoffs (DIY), black cropped pants (gap circa 1998)

30 for 30

from left: gray (j crew), green (j crew), yellow (target)

30 for 30

clockwise from top left: maryjanes (dankso), wedges (indigo by clarks), sandals (birkenstock), very dirty and beloved black flats (yellow box), gladiators (steve madden)

Each of these pieces will see at least 2 but closer to 3-4 wears each, so I'm going to summon all my best remixing skills for the next 30 posts. I'm excited to take part in this--check out the other participants and the full rules here.

Good selection! I'm participating too, but still am debating over what to include in my 30. I'm really looking forward to seeing what everybody comes up with.

Teresa said...

Wow! This sounds like fun but would definitely be a challenge for me. No shopping? That's the hard part. Hehehe! You chose some really awesome pieces. Good luck with this challenge! I think you'll do great! :)

Amy said...

i'm really looking forward to seeing this unfold! x

Kelsey Kim said...

Fun!! I could probably do this, too, because I seem to wear the same pieces all the time anyways, ut to commit? Nah, that's scary!!! Good luck!

Emily Kennedy said...

This is so exciting! I can't wait to see how it goes for you! Also, the two new items you're getting from Ruche are so cute! What fun you'll have! And the money you'll save!

Tanvi said...

Sounds a lot of fun! Let the games begin :)

S@sha said...

30 items doesn't sound like a lot, but seeing it all laid out it looks like it will remix into tons of outfits. The new dress from Ruche is particularly cute.

'Looking forward to seeing your mixing and matching extravaganza! The choices look great on their own thus far. . . .

Cara said...

OH MY GOSH! I had never seen Ruche before!! I clicked to see the tank that you ordered and have officially fallen in love with their selection!! Cant wait to see everything you come up with for this challenge. PS-Thanks for your tips on pinning your hair up --it makes my buns look way cuter!

Viv said...

Hey girl! Love your remix pieces! I'm so excited for this challenge, I think it will really liven up my summer look- at least I hope it will. But I am gonna have to get strangers to take my pics or something, cuz my husband is totally not excited about outfit pic everyday for the next month! HA!

Hurray, someone else's Birks end up black on the inside! I thought for years I was the only one.

And I love the dress you've got coming!

I love this! I am a huge fan of your blog and this is sorta like a necesity list for what a nerd wears. :] I'm definately going to use this as a paking guideline when I have to live out of a suitcase for the next three weeks-- perfect for the 30 for 30 challenge :]

Larysse Tavares said...

Great choices, including the ones that are coming. You are really a brave girl, you and the other women who accepted this hard challenge. We'll stay tunned every day checking your compositions =)

Have a happy and sunny Sunday!
P.S.: How about having some ice cream tomorrow? I think I'll have a delicious strawberry milkshake after watching Toy Story 3 with Alex. Let me know if you had it too. =)

Lauren said...

I'm still trying to decide as to whether or not to take the plunge and try to do this. I really like seeing what you've picked to include - it's really helpful in trying to decide how many of each items to include! It's the shoes that are really killing me!

I wish I could of joined in but unfortunately the challenge has been bad timing for me because I will be in the middle of moving house.

I can't wait to see your results though and hopefully I will be able to do this challenge another time.

Chelseabird said...

In love with this idea! I may just have to try and do it! :]

Kendi Lea said...

Great selection my friend!! I can't wait to see what you come up with :)

Thanks for joining in. xo -- Kendi

Fia said...

Can't wait to see what you do with these! Love the pops of yellow.

shealennon said...

Great picks for the challenge! I'm sure you'll come up with some great looks!

Miki's scrapbook said...

What a cool idea! :) I wish I could do the same! But unfortunately, the clothes I wear for work are quite different from the ones I choose to wear for my life outside work, hehe. That would take a lot more items ... not that I have that many anyway.

By the way, I didn't know those kind of shoes were called "maryjanes"; they're my favorite kind. In Argentina they have a girl's name too: "Guillerminas", haha.

Tight hug!

All great pieces, can't wait to see how you style them!

Jinah said...

I'm so excited for this challenge! I am still kicking myself for setting up a different project and missing out on having fun with you and Kendi!

Vanessa said...

I know I'm late to the game on this post, but I HAVE THAT BLUE SKIRT YOU CHOSE! I got really excited about it because it's one of my favorite things in my closet. I wear it all the time. :)
