30 for 30 | Take Two

hello

Yup it's here again! 

[30 items of clothing + shoes] + [unlimited accessories] + [no shopping] + [30 weekdays] = ??

I was hesitant to sign up for this challenge for two reasons: 1) last time I got some feedback that my outfits weren't professional looking (just a note of clarification in case anyone was confused--I don't dress professionally on weekends), and 2) it's winter, and I'm notorious for layering 3-4 tops at a time as normal wear...how the heck will I make do with only 30 items?

So this time I'm going with weekdays only (on the plus side, I'll have time to do laundry), and Kendi has exempted coats from the 30 items (whew). So that should tide me over at work. I chose some old favorites and some lesser worn items to challenge myself. Only five items are repeats of my last 30 for 30 inventory. 

Here's what made the cut:

Tops
1. Blue and white striped button-up (J. Crew outlet - 2009 - $20)
2. Turtleneck vest (2010 - swap)
3. Three-quarter sleeve white blouse (Macy's - 2007 - gift card)
4. Black dobby dot shirt (Target - 2009 - $14?)
5. Cream tee-shirt (2010 - swap)
6. Brown sweater (Gap - 2008 - $20)
7. Long-sleeve white tee (H&M - 2006 - $12)
8. Green button-up (BR Factory Store - 2009 - $6) Gold bow pumps (Nina via Ross - 2009 - $16)
9. Green and white striped sweater (Old Navy - 2008 - Christmas gift)
10. Yellow plaid flannel shirt (Ross - 2009 - $7)
11. Teal top (The Limited - 2009 - $12)

Bottoms
12. Black textured pencil skirt (2010 - swap)
13. Black suit pants (BR - 2010 - $90)
14. Tweed pants (Old Navy - 2006 - $6)
15. Boot leg jeans (Rockabilly from Renew Denim - 2010 - $30)*
16. Trouser jeans (Old Navy - 2010 - $12)
17. Skinny jeans (J & Co from Renew Denim - 2009 - $40)*
18. Red skirt (Target - 2007 - $6)
19. Brown pants (Gap - 2009 - $15)

Dresses

21. Green print faux-wrap dress (BR - 2008 - gift)
22. Gray shift dress (Gap outlet - 2008 - $12)

Cardis/Blazers
23. Green tweed blazer (2010 - swap)
24. V-neck cardi (H&M - 2009 - $30)*
