Instead I am home continuing to organize my stuff. I am downsizing. That's right, I finally admit I have way too many items of clothing I do not wear so I am using this 30 for 30 as an opportunity to cleanse my closet for real. I'm actually having anxiety about it!
And nothing helps anxiety on a hot day like this like a Popsicle. Today I decided to wear my romper under my high wasted shorts. It was my first time wearing the romper and I really liked how this turned out! The only thing is, the shorts part of the romper made me kind of feel like I was wearing a diaper under my shorts. Not a deal breaker but not a feeling i'm used to... yet.
Oh, and something I learned that I wanted to pass along to my blogger friends: When you are wearing a romper under shorts, keep in mind that when using the bathroom you have to fully strip down. I can honestly say today was the first time I sat in a public washroom in a bra with my entire outfit around my ankles.
I know as this challenge progresses, I am going to have to use belts and other accessories to make these 30 pieces look more exciting.
Thank you so so sooo much for all your amazing comments so far! Blogger is acting up so most of the comments aren't showing up, but I am able to read them in my email and they have brought such a smile to my face :)
I am trying my hardest to visit all the blogs of everyone participating but there are just so many!
Day 2 down... so many more to go!

Some of my comments aren't showing up either, it's damn annoying! I'm like ahhh... what am I missing!ReplyDelete
You look so great! I love that romper and those shorts + shoes look really good together. It's worth having to strip off to go the bathroom to look this cute, hahah.
Hi melissa thx for your comment on my blog!ReplyDelete
i love rompers but i agree they re the most impractical thing sometimes. Still, I love them although i'm not sure i could be too comfortable with them underneath another pair of shorts! regardless, love your floral "top" in the outfit.
will be adding your blog to my blog roll!
I really liked that you already "remixed" an item into something it wasn't specifically designed for. :) And your heels are to die for. Keep up the creativity. :)ReplyDelete
Great idea with the romper! I love the print of it and it looks fantastic with the black shorts. The heels are awesome, too!ReplyDelete
Love the idea of this challenge. It's sort of like what you do when you go on vacation, isn't it? Figure out which pieces you're going to remix for however long.
Such a fun one!
