It's a Marathon, not a Sprint...
I had a realization this morning about this 30 for 30 challenge - it's a marathon, not a sprint. It's really easy to "remix" items in the first week. I have a feeling that it is going to get a bit harder as time wears on (this being my first remix challenge). 5 days in and I feel like I have liked most every outfit I've come up with so far this week. I wonder what next Friday will feel like...
I also have discovered that I am extra paranoid about keeping my 30 items clean, because I usually wear the same pants or shirts a few times before they get washed. But I also feel like if something gets dirty, it has to be washed RIGHT NOW so that I can have it available just in case for the next day - as was the case with my white shirt the other day - I wear it one day, it gets dirty, and thus thrown into the wash and thus out of commission for at least the next two days while it dries [I don't use a drying machine for most of my clothes unless I am intentionally trying to shrink them]. So if one or two or horror of horrors THREE items get dirty, that's three less things to work with.
Anyway - the vibe of this outfit is kind of NYC/rocker-ish to me. I was originally going to wear my red pumps with this, but when I put on the same turquoise hued hat and belt - they did not work. If I had gone with a different colored belt, I think they would have worked better. Oh well - that just means they'll have to wait till another day!
Happy Friday everyone! Hope you have a great weekend (will you be remixing?)!
