Victorian Motorcross

30-30 couldn’t be over fast enough for me to get back out and do some shopping!  I realized that I really need more basics on the bottom.

I found these great motocross inspired jeggings.  They fit great but will need to have the waist taken in because they gap pretty badly.  Since the rest of the fit was great I went ahead and got them.  The nice Chinese lady down the street at the dry cleaners does a great tailoring job and she wowed me with my last pair of jeans that I took to her.

The sweater was a gift from my Mom.  She was sad that she’d almost missed the sweater season but since the weather has been crazy cold here lately I assured her I would still get use out of it.

It went so perfectly with the shirt I found on sale from Free People.  If you have one of these stores near you don’t be put off by the insanely hippie vibe.  I wouldn’t describe my style as boho at all, but every time I go in I find something that is unique and cute and once it’s on it strikes a nice balance of artsy and cool.

The shirt and sweater matched so well, both having the same plummy purple (the purple doesn’t really show up too well in the photos because it was such a gray day) and I loved how the sweater rose a bit in the back to show off the shirts little “train.”

30-30 Day 26

I forgot to take a daytime picture so you get this lame indoor one with flash.  Oops!

It has been cold and rainy here and I didn’t feel like wearing heels on a day when the weather was so unpredictable.

I’ve never worn this dress with a blazer since I was worried that the ruffles around the neckline would get in the way but actually I think it worked well.

30-30 Day 24

Almost over!!  Are you as excited for this exercise to be done as I am?!  Despite my boredom I tried to put together an outfit I’d really feel good in today.  Success!  I feel great and I love the color combination of plummy purple and light pink.  With just a few sequins thrown in for good measure!

I realized last week that I really only picked out two bottoms that I can wear to work day in and day out.  Two bottoms for 30 days is a little rough.  The other pair of jeans requires heels (can’t do that all day when I am on my feet) and the other skirts are great but too fancy or too eye-catching to work as neutrals.  Well I made it – despite my picking mistakes.

30-30 Day 8

This isn’t exactly a remix – since I’m wearing a total of 2 things.  But I also used this month as an opportunity to wear things that I like but don’t get around to wearing often enough.  This dress is one of those items.

I love the color and the fact that it has ruffles but not in an overly prissy way.  I added the boots for an extra dose of whoop-ass.  I feel like the color is more wintery, but maybe with sandals it would also work in the spring.
