30x30 Round III: The picks!

I am so excited to be working on my third 30 for 30.  It's about time, since the last time I challenged myself was 2011.  Check out my first challenge here and my second challenge here! So what is 30 for 30?  Let's go over the rules.

30 items, 30 outfits
I can choose any 30 items I want, and it will be my challenge over the next month (give or take) to remix them into 30 unique outfits.    The idea here is to pick a balance of dresses, skirts, tops, pants and shoes so that I can create 30 outfits without repeating.  I learned during my first 30 for 30 that I picked too may tops, but it seems like history may be repeating itself as I picked more tops than anything else this time around too.  Accessories, coats and undergarments (including basic camisoles) are not included in the 30 and can be added however I see fit.

No clothing shopping
The main reason this challenge was created in the first place is to gain gratitude for what you already have.  Appreciating what is already hanging in your closet and tasking yourself with finding new ways to wear old favorites is something that can be difficult when you get a case of the I wants.  It's a good reminder that when I tell myself I have nothing to wear that I am just full of it and actually have a closet full of thoughtful choices to pick.

So let's take a looks at the items I have chosen for this round of the 30 for 30.  Click on the item brand to see how I've featured this item before on In Kinsey's Closet.

11 tops

3 pants

5 skirts
Merona | Mossimo | Merona | everleigh | H&M

2 cardigans
Merona | Old Navy

    4 dresses

5 shoes/boots

I let my husband pick out an item for my 30 for 30, and he chose the blue suede booties from Style Inc.  Good choice!

Let the games begin!
