One

It's day one of Kendi's 30 for 30 Remix Challenge!  So here we go!  Last time I remixed, the first few weeks were a breeze.  As I closed in on day 30 I was ready to be done.  I took what I learned from the last remix (too many tops, not enough sweaters and cardis) and hopefully this time around will go better for me.  When I told my mom I was remixing again her exact reply was "NO!  Don't do that again!"  Sorry mamacita!
Top: NY&Co.
Blazer: H&M
Skirt: Simply Vera by Vera Wang
Tights: HUE
Shoes: Steve Madden
Ring: Street cart in Hawaii


I almost didn't include these shoes in my 30.  Last night I sat looking at my closet for a few hours trying to pick my items, and I forgot about these babies.  I picked out all of my items and when I added them up, I only had 21!  Toward the end I was just picking random things and tossing them into the mix.  Something tells me I might regret this, but so far so good.

Loving the first outfit! I definitely had a different experience picking my items out this time too.

Judy C said...

It looks super. But I couldn't tell the colorof the shoes. Great shoes. Black?

Ashley J said...

I cannot believe you only ended up with 21 must have items, you should have blown everyone away and done less than the 30 items...that would have been impressive! Love the outfit and love the sexy, beachwave hair you are rocking today!

Vida said...

You look incredible in these photos! Especially the last one. I'm going to have to take some tips from you!! Oh and I also had a bit of trouble getting to 30, but only because I vowed not to include certain pieces in it. Can't wait to see what else you have in store!
