I Regret To Inform You.....

As you can see, my legs are so pale they are almost purple. Hopefully purplish skin is in season this year. I know I will be sporting it a lot. Well, that is if the weather perks up. I wore this outfit on Saturday and it was a bit chilly. When I woke up Sunday, it was sleeting!! Hello, it is March, in Tennessee! I don't want to see anything that resembles snow right now!

Also, I again have decided not to finish out the 3o for 3o challenge. I have decided that it is just not for me. I love the lessons I have learned through remixing but by day 15 I get bored and stop having fun. It is supposed to be fun, right? I do enough in my life because I have to and if I can't enjoy my whole closet...... well it just doesn't feel right. So I hope none of the awesome people that read my blog will judge me for being a drop-out. I still thoroughly enjoyed looking at the blogs of those who did finish the 30 for 30 Challenge.

Going forward, I am going to work on incorporating the items of clothing in my closet that don't get enough wear. Also, I am going to take some cues from Jamie @ Work Your Closet and find inspiration and outfits I love in fashion magazine or outfits worn by other bloggers that I love and use what I own to re-create that look.

On another note, I really liked my outfit in today's post. It was put-together and comfy! What a great combo.

dress: New York & Company; tunic: New York & Company; socks: Target; boots: Soda; belt: Forever 21

Hey, you tried your best! I stopped having fun after the halfway point too. A whole month (longer if you don't take pics every day!) is a really long time to limit clothing choices. A one week challenge would be right up my alley, lol.

Thanks for the kind words Andrea!

You look adorable and don't feel bad for only doing half of it. I noticed that several bloggers decided to only do a 15 of 15 remix, for their own personal reasons!

AND I am definitely with you, when it comes to clothes I want to have F-U-N! xx veronika

I wanted to quit so badly as well! I finished, but it took everything I had. I lost all motivation to even blog because of it, so if you were facing those same issues I think you made a good choice for yourself!

I think you look cute, and the 30x30 isn't for everyone - it certainly isn't for me!!

Chic on the Cheap

I love this outfit combination. Don't worry about your legs. We all have pink legs at this time of year. Shoot I use tanning cream and they are still pink.
