So I'm totally late with my list, but in my defense, I haven't been at my house since Friday morning. We spent the weekend up in NY visiting B's sister, her husband, and their new baby boy. Good times were had by all. And then I came home to pick out thirty pieces to wear for the rest of this month while wearing my sweats.
This was HARD, y'all. After roughly three hours, much deliberation, and a scary moment where I handed the choice of the thirtieth item off to B, here are my picks.
Six pairs of shoes:
That's two pairs of boots, a pair of booties, two pairs of pumps, and a single pair of flats. I'm hoping I won't regret including the flats and not including my cowboy boots. In fact, I'm thinking of adding those in and doing an extra day as penance. It might happen.
Two full skirts and two pencil skirts seemed to work well last time around. And yes, that's the same black pencil skirt that I used in the last remix. What can I say, it's a versatile little item and I love it to pieces. Also, I'm excited to debut my new-to-me swapped skirt (Thanks Chantele!)
Two pairs of pants:
One pair of jeans and a proper pair of pants for the days when it's much too cold to wear a skirt.
The denim dress strikes again. What can I say? It's a workhorse. Also, I want to wear that checked Target dress more because it's so pretty, and I have NEVER worn that Old Navy sweater dress. Yes, I'm ashamed of myself, too. Expect these to become skirts or shirts at some point.
A blazer makes almost anything work appropriate and cardigans keep you warm. One black, one brown, and one bright should do the trick.
There are two button up tops, a woven blouse, one baggy sweater, and an assortment of knits. We'll see if I don't regret not adding one more sweater to the mix when it gets deathly cold in late November. Maybe I'll skip adding the boots and throw in one more sweater.
And if you've been doing the math - I totally wouldn't have done it if I were reading - you'd notice that that's only twenty-nine pieces. That's because B's pick isn't featured here. It's an embellished yellow cardigan seen here.
I'll be starting my remixing a day late, but I promise it'll be quite a ride. Oh, and y'all - this time around there are over THREE HUNDRED participants. That's absolutely crazy.
Oh, and if you were wondering, yes, I will be breaking the shopping ban for Black Friday. Don't judge me. I actually do need a few things (a rain coat, jeans, and practical work boots) before we move to the Costa Rican rain forest and there is NO WAY I'm paying full price for that stuff.
