30 for 30 Outfit 4






Occasion:

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.

Outfit:

Blouse: Thrifted

Skirt: GAP

Belt: J.CREW

Necklace: LOFT

Tights: Century 21 (Hue)

Boots: Zappos (Minnetonka)

Hat: H&M

Are you participating in the 30 for 30? How's it going?

Another combination of neutral colours and an amazing necklace - I love this one as well! The material of your shirt is so shiny, and the green and turquoise work very well with the different shades of beige and grey.

I'm already even more behind with the challenge than you are because of being sick, but I agree that it's really fun and I'm eager to continue tomorrow.
