>1/30: The Kick-Off


Hey remixers! I’m so excited for the kick-off of this 30 for 30 challenge. I moved my new little wardrobe to its own rolling rack in our home office so I won’t be tempted by the other pieces in my closet. So far, I’m optimistic about my ability to pull off a month of unique looks… but we’ll see if I’m singing the same tune by day 15.  
Since I refuse to iron on Mondays, I reached for one of the easy breezy dresses I bought on sale from American Eagle last week (a last minute splurge before the start of the shopping ban) and threw the denim jacket on top. Add tights and socks — a combo I saw and loved on Kendi — a belt at the waist, and we’re good to go! 
Looking forward to catching up on everyone’s first day later! Back to work now…

Update: a few of you commented about my lipcolor. It’s Smashbox Lip Enhancing Gloss in Tease, and it’s one of my favorite glosses. The color is great, it’s not sticky, and it really lasts.

    >This is such a great outfit, especially to kick off the 30 for 30 challenge! I love sweet floral dresses with cowboy boots topped with a denim jacket. Perfect! I realized that I forgot to include my denim jacket in my 30 so I might have to do a little swapping around!

    >A rolling rack is a good idea! I moved everything to one dresser drawer and the hanging items to one closet section – I think it will actually be nice to have the limited places to go when I get dressed in the morning (Till I get sick of it and miss the rest oft clothes anyway…)
