30 for 30: Day 20 - 24

You thought I'd been slackin' on the challenge, didn't you?  Well, I'm still in it.  I'm still remixing the same 30 items, several of which will being going straight to the discard pile after the challenge.  In my wardrobe, there IS such a thing as being over-worn.  My newly shrunken black skirt has to go.  As does the ivory v-neck sweater that is all pilly and dingey now.  My armpits have seen way too much of the black/white oxford.  And thanks to that bow pin (bottom left photo), my blue polka dot oxford now has a hole in it...but I don't think I can give up my polka dots.

I also HATE taking indoor pictures.  That's why these are small and un-proud.  Too mediocre for the blog, but the only documentation I can provide for the challenge.  Thankfully, there is the weekend for nice, outdoor pictures...I will endure the cold.

I love that second outfit. It's perfect! :)

I have several items in my closet that have been over worn that I just can't seem to part with. I guess I will get rid of them when I find something to replace them!

I love all of these! You're doing so great with the challenge!

I think my favorite is the first outfit. It looks so flowy and comfortable but it's still very slimming on you.

Are those plaid stockings? I LOVE them!

And I haven't heard of Herbergers in forever. I wasn't even sure they were still around! Glad to see they are, I have pretty great memories of back-to-school shopping there when I was a kid.

Yesss... you must be a Minnesotan with all of those layers! You seem to be mixing and matching pretty successfully!

I think the first outfit, with the dress, is my favorite. I think it looks just adorable on you. I have to say, I'm happy to hear that your clothes are getting over-worn too. (Not happy you have to get rid of them, but happy I'm not the only one). I did the challenge at home, and one thing I realized is that my clothes cannot take the wear and tear of being worn so much. I'm just glad I'm not the only one.

You were totally made for mod! I can't believe how awesome that top left outfit is on you - the colors, the shapes, the fabulous scarf - I love it all!

Also, I'm glad to hear that Miles is doing better. Little stink pots!

You are dressed perfectly in that picture with your Christmas tree. That bow makes you look like a present under the tree.

These are some cute outfits, I like the pictures with the stairs I think they looks interesting although, I do agree with you... outdoor pictures are better but, it's soooo cold! Stay warm :)
