The 30 for 30 Challenge

I have been in need of a challenge lately. Sure, I have recently started school, which will definitely keep me busy, but I haven't done too much in the way of trying to beat a challenge.

(Cue "challenge" music, which sounds a lot like the Rocky score because, hey, I'm no composer. If you think of better music, let me know)

Me and this here blog will be participating in a challenge dubbed by one of my favorite fashion bloggers as the "30 for 30."

The favorite blogger? Kendi from Kendi Everyday. She mixes perfectly-timed dry humor into her quest for what-the-heck-to-wear-today, and I freakin' love it. She always has an idea or two that inspire my own wardrobe (when I'm trying). She's also inspiring me to find a new, creative name for my blog, but one thing at a time. You should check her out.

The 30 for 30? You can read about it here, but the idea is you pick 30 items from your closet (shirts, bottoms, shoes, etc.) and remix them for the next 30 days. You should include a few items that you haven't worn in a while or that you always wear in the same outfit. It forces you to branch out.

The catch(es)? 1) You must wear* at least one item from the 30 for 30 for the next thirty days, and 2) You cannot go shopping. These are catches that you think will be no sweat until they happen. Then they are extremely painful. Except for your wallet, your closet, and probably other inanimate objects, like your car.

The 30 items from my closet? They are on their way! Check back in this week to find out what (totally basic) items from my own (mish-mash of a) closet I've picked for the (make an amazing wardrobe out of nothing) challenge, a.k.a. the 30 for 30.

So, what do you think? Is this going to be an interesting challenge? Too easy? If you tried it, could you succeed? Do you want to try it along with me? Am I asking too many questions?

*For some reason, in this blog post I kept wanting to write the word "where" for wear. Am I in the right place? Are you trying to tell me something, subconscious?
