Mixing and Matching.

Upon hearing about a challenge called 30 for 30, which hundred of bloggers around the world participate in, I have decided to become a remixer myself. In this contest you chose 30 pieces of clothing, counting shoes, but not accessories, and limit yourself to being able to use only those 30 pieces for 30 days. The point of this is to increase your ability to mix and match and understanding of your own closet, and how on those days you say "I have nothing to wear", that with a little creativity, you have countless outfits to experiment with.
I just started this on the 15th of November. And I must go through the 18th of December, because I have a 3 day trip with the school in which I must be dressed in a very specific dress code.

Day 1:
Striped black and white skirt.
Red and black tank top.
Grey cardigan.
Black knit tights.
Black ballerina flats.

Day 2:
Dark wash skinny jeans.
Green tank top with detail at neckline.
Brown faux leather jacket.
Brown ballerina flats.

Day 3:
Grey turtle-esque neck dress.
Blue button down shirt worn as cardigan.
Black knit tights.
Black ballerina flats.

I have decided to not include the black knit tights as an item because this challenge was originally created for the Summer and Spring, and if I was in either of those seasons, I would wear the same outfit minus the tights. So with the issue of warmth at hand, I am counting those as accessories.

It's so cool that you're doing this too! And I counted tights as accessories as well, so I think that's reasonable. Good luck!

I love your doing this!
Sounds sweet, I always complain about not having anything to wear. I'm gonna have to do that sometime!
