DRUMROLL PLEASE

That's right, folks!  It's that time when I finally throw caution to the wind and jump into the deep end.  Of my closet, that is!  Seriously, it's a disaster zone in there and my style has been all over the place lately, so isn't it high time I get things sorted out?  YES.  I think doing a 30x30 will be a great way to reevaluate what I have, what I use, and what I like. Oh yeah, and Jess and I are doing it together, too!  Seeing as we both have big birthdays in June, it seemed like destiny. Haha!




For those of you who haven't done a 30x30 Remix before, or if you're already an old pro at remixing, the challenge will be a bit different this time around.  Still based on Kendi's original plan, we've decided to include only clothing in the 30 remix items.  I don't know about you, but I'm super excited that I don't have to narrow down what shoes and accessories to pick, because that would be near impossible for me.

Anyway, we're starting on June 1st and we'd love for you to join us!  If 30 outfits for 30 days straight is a bit overwhelming, have no worries.  Feel free to take your time and do the challenge at your own pace.  Jess is taking weekends off, and I'm taking days off for the Fatshion Faceoff (and maybe weekends too, we'll see!), so we'll both end sometime in early July.  If you want to join us, this is what you do:

* pick 30 items of clothing (not including shoes, accessories, etc)
* make 30 outfits
* and that's it!

If you're still not sure and want to read about Jess' previous 30x30's, click here and here (this is my first remix challenge, so I have no advice to offer, whoops!).  Otherwise, we'll see you on June 1st, riiiight?  RIGHT!  ;)

Oh, and Jess will be posting a 30x30 blog button thing for those of us that want one (like me), but I will let y'all know when it's available.  :)

    2. Sometimes these challenges are good as they help us to mix things up a bit and step out of comfort zones! It sounds fun!

  4. I've seen these before, namely first stumbled upon it when Claire of A Monkey Fatshionista did it....but you mentioning birthdays made me think doing a 30 x 30 in August when I'll be, ooh look, 30 sounds like a great idea!!

    1. I've seen where Claire has done it before, and I've always wondered how it could be done with so few items. (Seriously, 30 things hanging up doesn't look like a lot!) But I'm turning 30 next month, so a 30x30 then seemed like a good time to take the plunge and try the challenge for the first time! If you want to join, feel free, we'd love to have you! :D

    4. Argh! I can't do it.. I won't have camera next week, and I would have to take pics in advance and there definitely isn't time since I haven't even chosen the items. Sad times. Next time then girls? :) xx

    5. Ah, bummer! But I totally understand! You'll HAVE to do it next time, tho. ;) <3d

  6. I saw this challenge a couple of months ago on another blog I follow. I've been wanting to do it, but I think I'll wait until winter to do it myself so I can work with layering. Looking forward to what you come up with!

    1. Thanks Molly! Less layers for summer will hopefully equal less times running the laundry, or so I'm hoping. :D Definitely want to do it again in the fall, considering if it goes well this times! :D
