THIRTY.

[Summer 30 for 30: Outfit 30!!!!!!]
Top: Forever 21 (hand-me-down)
Jeggings: Target
Belt: Thrifted
Shoes: Target

I'm finally done with the 30 for 30. I'm not going to do a recap post because, honestly, I'm just glad to be over with it, and you guys are probably sick of hearing about it anyway. I have all my 30 outfits all over on my 30 for 30 page if you're ever inclined to go see.

A few random things about nothing:

  1. I didn't realize how long my hair was until I straightened it. Looking at these pictures makes me really really want to schedule a haircut, but then I like the length when I curl it, so I'll just keep it long for now... and try to avoid wearing it straight.
  2. My high school 10 year reunion was on Saturday night. It was fun, but it reminded me of how closed off I was. Don't get me wrong, I loved high school, but I was comfortable in my clique, and never branched out because I was too intimidated by the "cool kids." As much as I wish it were different, I guess some things never change.
  3. I feel like I'm starting to finally figure out my personal style and getting better at deciding what kind of clothes I want in my closet. I need to stop focusing on what the latest trends and "must-haves" are, and focus on items that work with my existing wardrobe and lifestyle. Blah blah blah. Point of the story, I returned a bunch of things over the weekend that I bought while on vacation last month, even though they were bought with "bonus vacation budget money" and I don't get to use the refunded money towards new clothes. I realized that I didn't love them enough to keep them, even if they were so-called free. I need to pat myself on the back.
  4. I know i just finished off this challenge, but I plan on participating in Kayla's 21 day challenge... because there's going to be prizes!!!! and also because I like Kayla :) But the good thing about Kayla's challenge is that you just upload your pictures to the Flickr Group, so even though I'll try to participate everyday, I won't necessarily have to blog each outfit. Find out more about the challenge here, and I hope you can join along!

  2. Yeah, I got them on clearance a while ago, but I don't recommend them. As much as I like the fit and the pockets/belt-loops (as opposed to the ones that look like leggings/stretchy-pants), the seams are starting to come apart due to poor construction. Or maybe my calves are too big? :(

  6. Congrats, Kimmie!  That top is REALLY cute.  Doesn't it feel so good to return stuff sometimes?  Especially when you realize you don't love them or need them.  Good job!

  8. I am loving your long hair! Glad you had fun at your reunion!

    That 21 day challenge looks fun! Looking forward to your pics!

    And in response to the last post...yes, Cle Elum is quite the drive! My husband's parents used to live there growing up, and still have family out there. We are there for a day, then downtown the rest of the time...I cannot wait for all the good food!!

  9. The grass is always greener - I would LOVE to have your long hair! People pay good money for extensions to have your hair! But I know how it goes - it is always nice when it is not your own to style and deal with. I love this entire look - very summer casual and cute.

    i love your long hair :) i wish i could keep mine that long but every time it gets to a certain length, it gets waaaay too heavy and then i can't stand it so i have to chop it off (like i did last week).

  16. Haha, I know, right? But I think I'm just at a place right now where I don't really care for half my closet, and I'm afraid if I start purging and throwing stuff out, I won't have any clothes left. :(

    ReplyDelete
  17. Oh have fun!!! :) The weather here has been pretty mild, hope it's not too cold for you ;)

    ReplyDelete
  18. I know, and I also know that I'd totally regret it if I chopped it short! But it's always a big pain when my kid likes to pull my hair and "eat momma hair!" by sticking it all in his mouth and exclaiming "yummy!!!" - pretty gross actually, and he always ends up yanking out a few hairs, which is not exactly fun :(

  19. I know! my hair used to be so heavy when it was long, but I think my hair has thinned out considerably and it's actually pretty manageable now.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Yay! I don't feel so alone with you and Sorren to keep my company :)

  21. DO IT!! :) Kayla says they'll be easy prompts for the clothing challenges, so that makes me feel a little less nervous about being told what to wear...

  22. I love this look!  And congratulations on finishing the 30x30.  Also - I was the same way in high school - and now.  Good for you on returning the stuff.  
    And this is when I apologize for this collection of disjointed sentences; transitions are not my forte.

  23. Dude, I totally know what you mean about being at a place where you don't care for half your closet.  I'm trying to rework mine and definitely feeling that.  Too bad we can't shop each other's unwanted halves and swap.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Ahh, wouldn't that be perfect?! I'd love to shop in your closet, though you probably wouldn't care for half the things I'm going to be throwing out. Too bad we live so far! :(
