In the spirit of bending rules, I decided I wanted to wear a pair of boots I've been dying to show you guys. I bought them right before the challenge started, and I have no stinking clue why I didn't just throw them in the pile when planning out..instead of my dumb sandals. The weather here is lame, I promise it was shorts weather right before I started, and it's been pretty chilly throughout the entire challenge..ugh. I think there may be a chance for a teenie bit warmer weather later this week, I have a ton of outfits for my shorts and sandals. Anyway, I had been lusting after a pair of Sam Edelman booties for awhile, but I was not willing to dish out $130-160 for a pair, enter Ebay. I've never really used Ebay before, it's semi-intimidating, and I'm also kind of skeptical of people sometimes..but I thought I'd give it a look over, just to see if I could find a pair of black ankle boots (an item that's on my Holes in My Closet list), and lo-and-behold, there they were. I watchlisted 'em for a few days, and then while I was doing some homework, I waited until literally the last 10 seconds to make an offer. I won them for $31.25! What?! I had to pay $10 in shipping, but..uhm, $40 compared to $160, I'll take that any day. I bought them with birthday money too, so they were basically free. I love them so much, one day I'll buy the taupe colored ones too.
So, this is semi in my guidelines for the 30x30 challenge, the tee and the pants are in there already, and since I didn't really add jackets to mine, I wouldn't say that wearing my awesome new utility/military jacket is completely breaking the rules, but hey, I still felt like I was cheating..I'm not a rule breaker you guys. Thank you Type A personality. But, when I saw Kendi from Kendi Everday wearing a similar outfit the other day on her blog, and then I found this amazing Loft jacket for $15 at Plato's Closet, I knew I had to recreate it (minus her awesome beanie..it wasn't cold enough today, plus I don't really own many of them). I felt pretty Seattle chic, especially since it was all rainy the entire time I was at school earlier.
Oh, and I'm planning on getting a hair cut at some point this week. My
I'll be marking off two things from my list of Holes in my Closet, chicka-chicka-yeaaah.
