30/30 remix

so i'm just over the hump of this 30 outfit challenge and i feel like i am running out of ideas.  as i reflect on my items, i realize that i should have picked more vibrant, cute tops.  i was playing it safe choosing basic colors and not many patterns, but i really did myself a disservice doing that.  i didn't know what to expect though because i have never done a remix challenge before, but now i know. i don't know if i will be able to make 30 outfits from what i have chosen, but i sure will try my best. 

lessons learned:  tank tops should never count as a top, pick more of my cute print and vibrant tops, get clothes that fit impeccably, and spend more time creating sample outfits with the pieces to make sure they work first!!!!  a lot of my skirts and tops are baggy, so i felt uncomfortable wearing them.  i need to shop for fit a lot more, so no more low rise crap:  mid-waist or higher for this mama, i've learned it's a lot more flattering and fashionable.   i need to go on a shopping spree before a challenge, not during!


  1. i love seeing other knee-length shortsgoers out there. the belt makes this outfit, i think. you look fabulous--chic yet functional, you know? anyways. way to go on the challenge.

  2. oh thank you for the nice comment. i was so unsure about this outfit and you made me feel much better about it. i love to work with what i have and try to recreate the trends i see with my own spin on it.
