I am really excited to get started on this round of the 30 for 30. Did you know this is my third time with the challenge? Scary right?
I had a tough time choosing my pieces this go-around. Partly because I didn’t want to pick the same ol’ stuff I used the last two times and partly because I needed to make sure I picked wisely. Smack-dab in the middle of the challenge I’ll be starting my new job. Therefore, I need to make sure I pick items that will work well for my current job and hopefully translate nicely to my new job, although I’m not completely sure about their dress code… That’s probably why you see more professional pieces this time instead of the past two times. I wanted to make sure I had many options! Katy says I’m crazy for starting a new job AND participating in the 30×30 (I’m paraphrasing. She didn’t really call me crazy). But, honestly, the job is why I chose to participate. I wanted to be able to get up in the morning, get dressed, and head off to work. I didn’t want to think about what I was going to wear. I wanted to just GO. So the 30×30 falls at a perfect time. Plus, it’s cold, so I’ll need all the jackets I included!
I lamented until the very end about everything. I even made a last minute switch of taking out one cardigan, and adding in another top. I am still not sure where the black top is (that’s my missing piece), so if I am unable to find it, I will have to replace it with something else, but I plan to do that quickly so it doesn’t affect the rest of my 30×30.
EDIT: so I had to switch out two pieces, because I couldn’t find my original picks. The black shirt has been traded for a different black shirt, and the grey skirt has turned into a tan pencil skirt. We’re still good, since things don’t officially begin until tomorrow.
Let the remixing begin!
