THIRTY!


For as long as I can remember, I've wanted to be 30 years old. I'm still several years off, but if 30 years old feels as good as reaching the 30, then I'm still on board.

You can't tell in the picture, but I mixed navy and black today. I guess if the skirt weren't so faded you'd be able to tell more.  The outfit felt good (I'm always down for a great shell + pencil skirt combo), but I don't know if it worked. Oh well, you win some, you lose some.

Will do a recap later, but it's off to veg for the night!  Sometimes a girl needs a night off.

Have you ever taken a chance on fashion that just didn't work out, but you were okay with it?

  1. I think you may be the only person that I've ever heard that wanted to turn 30! LOL! :)

    I'm a fan of mixing navy and black, I think it totally goes well together. Love this look, you look great!

  2. I do feel blah when I pair a dark top with a dark bottom. I think it automatically darkens my mood

  3. Congrats on finishing strong!

    This is such a great work look, I really like the cropped jacket.

    I've never felt okay when I've worn something that I think didn't quite work out...I just end up being uncomfortable all day if I don't have time to change!

  4. Yay! You're done! Congrats! I just posted my 30th outfit too.
    I'm not really looking forward to turning 30 though, but it feels good to be done with this remixing challenge. Is everyone at your work super jealous of how stinkin cute you look every day?!

  7. Love the navy and black together. Plus the cropped jacket is awesome!

    I thought I was the only person that looked forward to turning 30 (many, many years ago mind you), but it was more from a get-it-over-with attitude rather than actual anticipation for a new milestone.

    i did find that my 30s were much more peaceful than my 20s and my 40s (ok, I just turned 40 a few months ago) are even better.

  10. Thanks, gals, it is a good feeling. Funny...I went to get dressed this morning for the first time without any constraints, and it took me like four tries to find an outfit!

    I think I liked 30 because I figured I'd be more comfortable in my skin by then, be independent enough to do whatever I wanted, and have some long-term friends. So I guess sort of like now. But maybe then people at work wouldn't freak out every year around my birthday saying "you're how old?!?" (by old they mean young).

  11. Congrats! I'm also a fan of navy and black. As for 30, I loved it. I couldn't wait to be 30 for the longest time. That was 14 years ago LOL!

  12. @style underdog - Thanks! Heck, if after-30 is as fun as you make it look, I might change my goal-age to 40!
