30 for 30: day 1

I mentioned the other day that I was going to complete another 30 for 30 style challenge for the month of April. If you're new around here, I pick 30 items and have to style 30 outfits with only those items. It usually lasts about a month, give or take a few days (I mean, I AM posting my first outfit on the 5th day of April...).

So, sit back, relax, and watch me create 30 outfits (hopefully 30 different outfits) with 30 items that I picked from my closet.

You’ve seen this chambray dress and sandals several times before (here, here, and here). So, instead of boring you with the same old thing (and on the first day of my style challenge!), I spiced it up with some leopard.

I wore a leopard print button up UNDER the dress, and also added a leopard print belt. Yes, they're two (slightly) different leopard prints, but since leopard is a neutral (truth fact. look it up.), it works. Or, if it's too busy and you think it doesn't work, then let's call it creative print mixing.

Sometimes I worry that too much leopard is just too much, but this strikes just the right balance, by allowing the collar and sleeves to peek out from under my dress.

And this is my favorite part. The shirt has a tab and button thingey-deal to hold up a folded sleeve. And so does my dress. So, being the fancy sleeve folder that I am, I used the tab on my shirt, and the button on my dress to keep my sleeves up.
And I dig it.
So much. 
First time I've tried it, and I love how it turned out.

chambray dress: Kohl's
leopard print button up: WalMart
leopard print belt: thrifted
metallic sandals: Target

30 for 30: day 1 & day 2

day 1

1 finger for day 1

For day 1 of this challenge, I went with tried and true basics (that also happen to be favorites) – a chambray and black skinnies. I chose this green belt over my usual-as-of-late brown, and my python print flats that I LURVE. They’re definitely showing signs of wear, but, I think I paid less than $10, so while I’m sad they’ll soon be worn down to nothing, I do feel as though I’ve gotten my money’s worth out of these fun flats.

day 2

This striped top is a new addition to Annie’s Closet. And while the idea of it is GREAT, the actual wearing of it was less than amazing. Let me explain how a striped top from The Red Dot Boutique (Target) was less than stellar - it was a bit itchy, it fits funny in the chest, and unless it’s pulled just so, it makes my hips/waist/right above my pants look bigger than they are. So, there’s that…and also, are the stripes navy or black?!
