Day 24

With only 6 outfits left in this 30 for 30 challenge I have so many questions swirling around in my head about when this challenge is over.

Will I remember how to wear clothes that aren't in my 30 pieces?
Will I have anything to blog about if I'm not blogging about one of my 30 outfits?
Will my neighbours have me committed if I continue to take pictures of my outfits in my backyard once the 30 days are over?

So many questions and no way to find out the answers.

Today at work I looked at the date and realized that yesterday was my 10 year anniversary of when I started at my company! It's bizarre to think that July 27, 2000 was my very first day at my job... that seems like aaaages ago and things have changed so much since then. Milestones like that are so much fun but they make me feel old.

First it was my 10 year high school reunion and now 10 years at my job! I think it's about time I retire.

The last time I wore this black pencil skirt I paired it with my romper and I felt a little over dressed. I thought I'd try wearing it with a more casual tank top and even though I ended up wearing a chunky necklace I still felt like this outfit was more casual. All in my head? Perhaps but I was much more confident in this outfit which meant I was a lot happier.

The accessories? This chunky blue necklace is from F21... It was an impulse buy a few years back and I love it.
The clutch was also an impulse buy from Aldo but I think this is only my third time using it.. oops!  And the shoes? well if you aren't sick of them by now then I'd be surprised. I obviously love these and they are super comfy! Most of the shoes I love torture my feet so I always have a soft spot for the comfy ones.

I can NOT believe tomorrow is day 25. TWENTY FIVE. Crazy.

  1. Too cute Melissa! That bright blue by your face is definitely a good impulse buy! I can't believe you are almost done! If I would've taken pictures I'd be at 25 too, but alas I need to backtrack, I CANNOT wait to wear new items :)

  2. I LOVE the black and white with the pop of blue! Blue is an amazing colour with your skin and eyes! And yay for comfy heels. You are looking gorgeous as usual.

    Thank you so much for your seriously sweet comment! I was so suprised/happy that I won it :)


  3. I absolutely love stripes and this outfit is adorable! you look pretty too! :)

    I'm glad I came across your little blog, i'm looking forward to your future posts.

    Have a great rest of the week!

  4. Props to you for rocking a boldly colored necklace. I'm too chicken to do the same. It really works with the outfit.

  5. I really liked that you paired that necklace with this outfit. Great choice.

  6. I feel like I'm going to need to ease back in to my closet - I've been thinking of outfits to wear post-challenge, and most of them involve clothes in the challenge...it's going to be interesting!

  7. The statement blue necklace is very pretty with the neutral stripes and black skirt! I also love the purse you paired it with. Can't believe you're almost done (and a day ahead of me...boo!) Are we meeting Monday or Tuesday I can't remember?

  8. Great outfit. I love the accent that the blue necklace gives!


  9. 25 wow, I am at 12....very impressed. I love the striped top with the pop of color from the necklace. Also, that clutch is cool!

  10. I have that necklace and also love it!

    This is the first time I've ever seen anything I own on someone's blog. It weirdly made my day.

  11. This is a fabulous work outfit! I love the stripes and the pop of blue. Those shoes are fantastic, too! I'm so jealous that I can't wear open toe shoes at my job!
