30 for 30 Outfit 4
I have to say, as of right now, I am really enjoying the 30 for 30 challenge! Kendi's resource guide has been a great help and I especially like the worksheet pages which help you figure out outfits by day, activities, etc. I printed out a ton of these pages and have sketched out more than 30 outfits so even if I try a possible combo and it doesn't work out, I still have plenty to fall back on. I am feeling good about this challenge so far but this is only my first week (even though this is only outfit 4 on here, I have worn 7 outfits already...I'm a bit behind in posting).
This was my outfit for school on Friday. I usually try to be much more casual on Fridays, but this outfit really spoke to me and I was itching to wear it:) I thrifted this blouse at Goodwill a few weeks ago. It was such a great find; I love the cut, the buttons up the back, the bow detail at the neck, and lastly and best of all it is 100% silk and great quality...score! I normally prefer to pair a looser top with a sleeker bottom, but I really like the contrast of the billowy top tucked into the looser fitted skirt. I belted it to add some definition to my waist and to provide some contrasting color. I love this necklace, but I rarely wear it because it's such a bold statement necklace that it usually overwhelms the entire outfit. However, because the shirt is such a muddy color, I decided to match this necklace with my turquoise skinny patent leather belt. I completed the ensemble with my black moccasins and a black beret.
Tights: Century 21 (Hue)
Boots: Zappos (Minnetonka)
