And then, while perusing an interesting looking blog, I stumbled upon this. And an idea was born. Several minutes of scouring my closet later left me with thirty pieces. I'm not shopping for the next thirty days (well, next twenty-nine, since today was day one!) Basically means I'll be allowing myself to shop around the time we hit Cali, and not a moment before. We'll see how it goes! (Also, this makes me post more...gives me an incentive to, really. I want to post on weekends, and then I get distracted and it doesn't happen...but now it will.)
The thirty pieces...

And Day One!
Necklace - gift | Tank - A'gaci Too | Shorts -Western Warehouse (with help from my scissors - would you believe these things are nine years going on ten!? I was a TALL eight year old!) | Sandals - Payless | Bracelets - Forever 21
Sigh. I don't even know what I'm doing in that last picture. I am such a weird poser! Also, note to self; if you're going out, BRING A JACKET. Nobody else keeps their places as warm as your mother keeps the house.
Now, for tomorrow, I get to find a church appropriate, lead-singer-appropriate outfit. Because guess what? That's what I'll be doing tomorrow. Otherwise I would wear jeans and one of the t-shirts I allowed myself. (eww, I can't throw on whatever t-shirt is most convenient each day, I have to think).
In other news, I wore an (almost) entirely thrifted outfit yesterday. All the items are actually in my 30 pieces. Maybe I should count that as Day One and the above outfit as Day Two? I'll be in the middle of nowhere when that would run out...hmm.
Feathers- Earthbound Trading Co. | Vest - thrifted | Shirt - thrifted | Skirt - still not sure, but I think TJ Maxx | Flats - thrifted

I am an awkward poser and I don't care. XD Did you notice what that vest does when I zip it up? Definitely made for a less busty person...but I don't really care. It's cute and comfortable and I adore it. Same thing for that skirt. It's so weird how it handles shadows though. It sometimes just...doesn't have any shadows and looks totally flat and bizarre.
Have you done this challenge and had fun with it? I think I'm going to!
