Throwing It Back With A Summer 30 For 30

Last week, Kendi announced she’s relaunching her 30 for 30 remix after an 8-year hiatus, and the 2009 blogging community collectively cheered. If you’re an old-school style blog lover, you probably remember the challenge well: take 30 pieces from your wardrobe (tops, bottoms, dresses, skirts, outerwear and shoes) and mix and match them into 30 unique outfits over 30(ish) days. Kendi’s 30×30 inspired us to play in our closets, get creative with our style, and…

Weekend Update

The last of my outfits from my summer 30 for 30, a peek at the florals I designed for a wedding at Mackay Gardens, and a fun night of music and celebration at the Gram Parsons Derry Down.

Final Four

Remix #27 of 30 :: black silk dress + drape vest + nude stiletto sandals I don’t have much time to write today; I have a cooler full of hydrangeas and roses that I have to whip into bridal designs for a wedding and a bucket of sunflowers to drop into mason jars for an event downtown, and I want to breeze through it all so I can get a jump start on the weekend.

Double Denim

  Remix #23 of 30 :: denim jacket + dark skinnies + texture knit tank + stacked heel sandals Kids went back to school last week, and like every year around this time, it feels like someone flipped a switch on our slow summer pace and lit up the flower shop with orders, weddings and events. I would really like to wrap up my summer 30 for 30 remix by the end of next week, but I’ll probably keep posts…
