30 for 30 Wrap Up

Whoops! Remember back when I did that 30 for 30 thing? Well I forgot to post the wrap up of all my outfits! So here they are!

I’m pretty happy with the way it turned out. It really wasn’t too difficult and definitely forced me to be a little more creative! I’m also pretty satisfied with the pieces I chose. There were only a few things that I didn’t remix a whole lot, but I probably would have if I had more time. In fact, looking back at these pictures, I can think of a couple outfits that I didn’t get to wear that I think I still might. The only thing I would have done differently is try on all the clothes I picked to make sure they fit and maybe have a back up pair of tights so in case I rip one of my everyday pairs again, I don’t have to break the no shopping rules!

My favorites were 1, 3, 4, 9, 13, 14, 21, 23, 25, 26, and 30. Where there any that you liked in particular?

Caramel Delight

I really loved this outfit – it has a certain slouchy, cozy feel to it, but is still cute. The color of this dress is so great and it has a fun little pattern on it that isn’t visible in the pictures. The lace trim is a sweet touch.

I had been planning on wearing this dress with my chunky cardigan and boots to my friend’s 18th birthday party, but had the hardest time figuring out which tights to wear. While doing some last minute Christmas shopping, I stopped in at Macy’s to pick up a pair of maroon tights and found these caramel colored ones as well. They are a lighter shade than my other brown ones and work perfectly with my boots. Even though they’re a neutral, they still bring a little extra color to the outfit!

Christmas Spirit

This was what I wore Sunday evening to go into downtown Portland with my family. It is one of our Christmas traditions to visit Santaland, see the Christmas tree, and have dinner at the Rock Bottom Brewery. When my brothers and I were little, we loved to ride the monorail, walk the outside of the building to see the 12 Days of Christmas displays in the store windows, and, of course, sit on Santa’s lap. Unfortunately, in 2005, Macy’s took over all of the Meier and Frank stores and the holiday traditions didn’t continue. My family and I still went downtown, walked around and had dinner.

I wanted to be festive, but not too dressed up so I layered a white cardigan with a floral applique over my cranberry red knit dress and topped it off with a fun headband.
