My progress

I'm a genius and I left my camera cord at Mike's place.

Since I'm unable to upload today's (well, last nights - I'll explain later) outfit, I thought I'd do a quick recap of days 1-6.

How is everyone doing so far? I'm doing okay I think, but it's hard to believe it's only been a week. I have had a few urges to shop but I've ignored them.
My biggest regret is including 2 jackets and a pair of jeans in my 30 pieces when thanks to this insane heat wave Vancouver is experiencing all I want to wear is sundresses. Another regret of mine is that I didn't own more sundresses at the start of this challenge. After wearing my one dress on day 5, all I want to wear are light and easy dresses. Oh well, knowing Vancouver the weather will change again and I'll be wishing all I picked was rain gear. (Actually I really hope that doesn't happen!!)
7 days down (6 outfits posted) and 23 days to go!
I have too many 30 for 30 favourites to name (yet) but I think I'll do a post very soon about all the remixers who have been so supportive to me and have fantastic style themselves.
Now it's time for to attempt to make up those hours of sleep that I failed to make up this weekend!

30 for 30 Banner


  1. I too wish I hadn't have picked 2 cardigans, 2 jeans, 2 three quarter lengths shirts, and 1 blazer!!! What was I thinking? It's always above 80!
    Anyway you are keeping it simple and chic, love it so far :)

  2. See, I was being stupid when I chose my items and kind of chose 3 cardigans... It's never under 100 degrees here.
    I don't know if it was wistful thinking or if I was just out of it... But a big mistake.

    I absolutely LOVE the dress you're wearing. I want it so badly.
    But I really like this challenge, because it makes you realize what you really like to wear. It's a good thing that we're not shopping this whole month, cause' then at the end,we realize what we actually NEED.

    Well, that's what's happening to me anyways!

  3. Thanks so much for following! Can't wait to see your next outfit.

    I hope you caught up on your sleep :)


  4. i think this "30 for 30" challenge is awesome. definitely more challenging that my "40 days and 40 nights" of not shopping haha. thanks for all your lovely comments melissa, i always enjoy reading them because they're not lame one-liners like "love it!" or "great style!" love what? lol c'mon be more specific at least! ok i'm going to stop before i go on a tangent in your comment section. I love the outfits you're created so far. i can't even pick a fav cuz i love them all. but i'm definitely liking days 5 and 6 because of the bright pops of colour. keep up the great work and i look forward to seeing your other 24 outfits!
