Here goes nothin'...

So, admittedly I'm in a bit of a blog slump. I usually relegate this blog to my writerly stuff, but since nothing much is happening on that front I decided to do something different! My friend Carrie (you can find her blog, Mama's Going to Buy You a Mockingbird in my blog list on the right hand side) is participating in a 30x30 challenge and she totally talked me into doing it too. It's basically where you take thirty items out of your wardrobe and wear only those thirty items (not including accessories) for the next thirty days, so all of May. Anyway...I'm so not a fashion blogger. Aside from posting the occasional hair pic, I don't like to post pictures of myself all that much. Mainly because I HATE taking selfies. So we're going to have to get over that...I guess. Other than that, I don't think I'll have any trouble with this at all. Since I don't work most of my clothes are pretty casual, aside from church and Bible study and the occasional family outing, I mostly live in jeans and t-shirts.

We'll see how this goes. The first day of this challenge  May 1st, everyone is posting pics of their 30 items. Again, not so hard. I don't have a huge wardrobe, and I'm pretty used to re purposing things.

Here we go!

    May 001

    Can a girl live in just six pairs of shoes for a month? Totally.
    1. Chaps wedge flip-flops from Kohls
    2. Sonoma wedges from Kohls
    3. Yellow Box flip flops sister in law
    4. Green Converse...need to be washed!
    5. Red Toms
    6. Mossimo flats from Target...boring, but go with everything

    May 003

    Sweaters and jackets
    7. Old Navy military jacket...I've had this since 2004, it's my favorite!
    8. Mossimo boyfriend blaze from Target
    9. So short sleeved sweater from Kohls
    10. Mudd long-sleeved grey thingy. Not sure what it is, cardigan? Who cares, it's cute on. Not in pictures, though.
    May 004

    Skirts, dresses...oh I only picked two. Ehhh.
    11. Black pencil skirt, some random Kohls brand
    12. Black and white dress from Ross
    13. Candie's stiletto mary janes. I probably won't wear these too many times, but I've got to have "church" shoes. Plus I think there is a girls night out in my May itinerary and I don't want to regret not having heels!

    Do you spot the problem with my wardrobe so far....? NO COLOR!

    2. Agh, I messed up my last comment! I am so excited you are going to try this out! I really can't wait to see what you do with your Chambray blouse! I need more ideas of how to wear mine. Also, love your red Toms. This is going to be so fun (gulp, I hope!)!! :)

    3. Okay, love the red Toms. I have been wanting them for a long time, but I worry I wouldn't be able to wear them with much so I'm excited to see how you style them!

    4. I'm so glad you're joining in!! Can't wait to see your styled outfits!
