#30 and a Recap

16 Jul 2011 Permalink

And the last look for the 30 for 30 Challenge is…drum roll, please…

A little glam for watching my brother perform in Pinkalicious: The Musical at the Broadway Playhouse at Water Tower Place.  (Awesome show by the way!  If you’re in the Chicago area, make sure to check it out.)

Here is a little recap of the first 28 looks.  For look number 29, feel free to take a look at yesterday’s post.

I’m glad that this “challenge” is over.  It wasn’t really a challenge in the sense that it was difficult to “remix” outfits; the challenge, for me, was staying away from my other clothes…I wanted to wear them, too!

Anyone else participate in Kendi’s challenge?  How’d it go for you?

I did something I should not have done.  I opened the drawers of my dresser; the drawers that contain the non-maternity clothes that I refused to pack away.  As soon as I slid the first drawer open, I knew I shouldn’t have done it.  But then I continued to open the second one and glanced at its contents.  The items were so colorful and beautiful and seeing them, even for a short moment, made me really miss wearing them…

Thankfully, I can turn towards my accessories to assist in the color department.  My necklaces, belts, scarves, bracelets, earrings, bags and hats have been my saving grace (Oh, and nail polish, too!).  They have the powering ability to take a basic look and turn it into something more.

Nice picture, huh? I was trying to open my eyes, but the UV rays were attacking my vision.

Do you have this problem?  The sun is no where in sight, yet you still find yourself needing sunglasses…

I’m not sure if it’s just my blue eyes or if pregnancy has been making me extra sensitive towards the sun, but this definitely justifies owning more than a few pairs of sunglasses…Now if I can only get my husband to understand.

Ever wake up in a super-unmotivated mood?  Completely crabby for no apparent reason?  (Does this sound like an infomercial?)  So…what do you do?

  I really believe in the power of looking good…well at least the power of forcing yourself to get dressed in clean, decent looking clothing.  There is something so motivational about dressing yourself for daily success…even if the only “successes” consist of going to the grocery store, bank, and making a quick stop at the playground with your little one.
