30x30 under $30 remix

for a little while now, i have seen this little challenge floating around the blog world:
remixing 30 items of clothes for 30 days

at first i thought it was kind of funny and kind of impossible,
no way could i ever be that disciplined or that fashionable to pull that off!

but then i had this thought.

i still don’t think i’m fashionable at all, but i do think i’m really cheap when it comes to clothes shopping.
{and everything else for that matter}
and so i thought it might be fun to do the 30 for 30 challenge but then add in an extra element:
all outfits under $30!!

and although i’m horribly awkward at taking outfit pictures, i thought it would be a lot of fun to maybe share this challenge with all of you and share any tips that i have on dressing on a budget!

so what do you say?!
are you with me??

here we go:
my 30 items for the 30 day challenge

7 shirts7 shirts

2 dresses2 dresses
 3 blazers3 blazers
 3 pants 3 pants

4 sweaters4 sweaters
  4 skirts4 skirts

3 tanks3 tanks

4 shoes4 shoes* 

and here are my rules:

1. each outfit that i wear/show will be $30 or less

2. i am not including undershirts because they are undershirts… and are just trying to help me be more modest :)

3. i reserve the right to wear different/warmer jackets/coats if the weather is colder and to not include it with my 30 items. warmth is important!

4. the little * by the shoes is because i also reserve the right to possibly wear other shoe choices.
cause let’s be real: shoes are accessories!!
you don’t really change up how you wear shoes like mixing and matching pairs.
no, no.
you just choose to wear certain ones that match the outfit like you choose certain jewelry to match.
so in my challenge, i gave myself lee-way with shoes and i don’t feel guilty about it

which leads me to 5. accessories don’t count towards the 30 items or the $30 price
{though all my jewelry is really inexpensive so it would still be under $30 anyways}

and 6. i haven’t decided on how i’m going to post pictures yet. i may do it in a clump once a week instead of every day. but do know that i am sticking to it!!


i’m really excited about this!!
and i can’t wait to show you some of the outfits i have come up with
{some being way less than $30!}

let me know if you decide to do the challenge too!!
i’d love to see your outfits!


::p.s. i have actually been doing the 30x30[x30] challenge for the last few weeks, i just haven’t posted about it yet. i wanted to make sure i could actually keep up with it before i committed myself to a whole blogging world. and i’m proud to say i have! so all the pictures that i will be sharing were taken previously. just so you know :)

Wow, that's so impressive - I don't think I could ever be that disciplined! But I am cheap, so I love your under $30 addition!

is the object of this challenge to create the MOST outfits with the same items of clothing? cuz if you just had to wear the same 30 items for 30 days that would be no problem for me--except it would be more like 15x30. haha. I wear the same ol' stuff to work every week!!
