knitting it up in a big way

Category Archives: 30 for 30

1-5

i think 4 & 19 are my favorites. i feel like all of the elements, proportions and colors are just right.

6-10

i put the tall wedges in to try to get rid of my conviction that i couldn’t wear them all day. because they aren’t uncomfortable. i just can’t move very quickly in them.

11-15

i think i’m getting better/more confident about incorporating color(s) into my outfits. i tend to stick to mostly neutrals with one color pop, and while that is still my comfort zone, i played with multiple colors a handful of times.

16-20

i usually select a few things that i always mean to wear, but rarely do, to see if i would wear them more by forcing them into the rotation. sometimes it works, and sometimes it illustrates why i never wear them. so now i can let go of the h & m skirt, see, because it’s gotten fair shakes at being incorporated, and it just didn’t make the cut, no matter how many things it might go with. so i’m sending it off to my cousin, who expressed interest in it when i was complaining about it.

21-25

i didn’t wear my gingham dress. i tried it on once or twice for various outfits, but i came to realize that it is just plain too short, unless worn with leggings (like i did here). anyways, long story short, it went to goodwill after a closet purge in the middle of this remix. another item that never made it in was my forever21 tank, which had a similar problem. i need to take up the straps a little bit before i can wear it.

26-30

what are your favorites?

jill & i went to renegade craft fair yesterday, where my eyes and head got filled up as quickly as my wallet emptied. it was fantastic, i love doing it, but whew! wear comfortable shoes and have a budget! we stopped at milk & honey for lunch, which is always delicious, but the ice cream sandwich (earl grey ice cream with citrus cookies) was maybe the best thing ever.

as you might have been able to tell… i lost some steam this week. i got sidetracked by some other projects (painting a ceiling, lending a hand as pops episode 6 inches closer to release, dogsitting), and unfortunately the remix got backseat a couple of times… but now i’m done! huzzah!

let’s see… things you’ll be interested in… i spilled some coffee on my shirt today, which is a feat usually reserved for days that i wear pristine whites, rather than greys where it doesn’t matter so much. i spent way too much time thinking about the center part, and then i decided ‘what the hay, might as well revisit it and see how you feel’. turns out that’s kinda what my hair wants to do. oh, and this is outfit 25, re-visited and re-worn so that i could actually document it. and can i just say, it was an elusive creature? i only just managed to sneak pictures of it on it’s second full day about five minutes before it got traded in for pajamas.

oh, wait, that was all pretty boring. ah, well. some days are like that, yo.

this outfit was brought to you (or me, rather) by TARGET! t-shirt, maxi and wedges are all from target, though the maxi was a thrifted dress turned skirt. the belt is from j crew, though. i don’t always feel like having a gigantic brass clip in the front, sometimes a simpler black stripe is what i want for an outfit, so i turn it around. plus it adds a little visual interest to the back. bonus!

we were wandering around the gold coast, and found this sweet park, where we decided to grab some outfit pictures. as we wandered forth from there, we realized that the building right behind me (sorry, you can’t see it really in the pics) was the newberry library! it’s one of those spots that even though we live (relatively) nearby, we’ve never really managed to see. in fact, i never even really knew about it until i read the time travellers wife. it was closed, unfortunately. but now that we know where it is, some time we’ll actually get down there while it’s open!

did you guys have a good long weekend? i’ve been having a harder time getting pictures of my outfits during the work week for some reason, so i need to re-don outfit 25 and take some pictures! hopefully for tomorrow!

i’m getting to the point in the remix now where i’m really starting to miss access to the rest of my wardrobe. don’t get me wrong, i still have some outfits up my sleeve. (more than enough, in fact. i’m kinda thinking about doing a mini photoshoot at the end of any outfits i didn’t get around to wearing for this remix, actually.) but there have been a couple of days where i have had to haggle myself into wearing something more interesting than jeans and a comfy shirt. there’ve been several times at work where i’ve thought longingly of all the woolly sweaters i own that aren’t in this remix.

j crew coral blouse, belt, skirt h & m navy tights target wedges

i like colored tights, right? but about half the time, when i try to wear them, i feel like i didn’t get it *quite right*. like here… the coral shirt and the navy tights aren’t quite jiving for me. i can’t tell what should be different, though. or is something else throwing it off? thoughts?

j. crew cardigan thrifted belt forever21 skirt that used to be a dress bertie’s thrifted

i did actually wear the cardigan backwards for a few hours, but the back of the neck rises up a little bit, and it was touching my throat, and i could only deal with that for a few hours. i really don’t like things touching my throat. we all have things, right? anybody else with me? i think i only own one turtleneck for this reason. i still like the idea of a the backwards cardigan, though, so i might give it another shot with a different cardigan?

i’m surprised it took this long for this skirt to make it into the rotation. i love jersey skirts in the summer. like several other skirts i own, this one used to be a dress. a dress that let a little more of my business out into the world than i am generally comfortable with. but i loved the calico pattern. so i chopped off the very (very very) low cut bodice, which also effectively lowered the hemline, and voila! super comfy jersey skirt!
