"Believe in your heart, follow your dreams or just go to Disneyland." Emma -age 4

See? I knew it was good to be a day ahead. While we didn't get the 3-5" of snow they predicted, we did get enough to cancel school. But this is Texas. They cancel school if it gets too cold. And it's very cold outside. Let's just say I didn't have a reason to get dressed today.

And the last several days when I go into my closet, and I look at my 30 for 30 items, I feel like this guy.

That's Gob Bluth (pronounced Job not gob) for those of you who haven't seen Arrested Development. And if you haven't seen it, please do. It's seriously funny. Anyway, he's always lamenting his relationships and saying "I've made a huge mistake." This is how I feel. My items are betraying me. I went to put on the chambray shirt yesterday, I swear I tried it on pre-challenge, and it won't button up. How can I have an item that doesn't fit? And I am seriously questioning some of my other choices. So what to do? Do I solider on? Do I take items out and add different ones? I wouldn't exchange anything I've already worn. I feel that would be cheating, but what about the items I haven't worn? Help me please. I am a 30 for 30 virgin after all. I'm bound to make bad choices. Next time will be better.

Enough talk. Onto the outfit.

I totally copied Kendi with this outfit. You can see her version here. And I am most definitely not Kendi. She is way cuter with her red shoes and flower. But I think that I got the gist of the outfit. My take on it anyway. I love this top. I can't wait to dress it down with jeans. And can you tell the difference in my skirt? I changed out the buttons and I love it even more. I just wish my daughter had mentioned my belt was wonky. Again with pointing out my flaws. Will I ever learn? Apparently not. Because I just compared myself to Kendi.

  1. Carrie!! I can't even tell you how much I love this whole you posting every day! Love IT!! And I love what you're doing, and your outfits, and the beautiful pics of you, and reading your post and hearing you say it in my head. :)

    Keep 'em coming! ..you're inspiring me....

    Love you, miss you.

  2. This is my first time as well so I don't know what seasoned users would say, but I think if it hasn't been worn it should be open for swapping with a different item. Your outfit today is fabulous. You should treat yourself to a frozen banana. :)


  3. I agree with Shallan...you are putting together some really great outfits! I am also inspired. I have really been reexamining my wardrobe. I am trying to now shop based on need for the wardrobe I have instead of just purchasing clothes because I like it. Keep it up!
