January Pictures + February Preview

Photos from the past month that don't fit anywhere else but should be shared:

The timing couldn't be more perfect for Kendi Everyday to start her winter edition of the 30x30 remix. I'm moving at the end of this month, so I'll simply pack away everything but the 30 and have it ready for my new apartment. Easy!


I am not including outerwear, undergarments, accessories, loungewear, or plain tanks. My work uniform doesn't count either because I wear the same thing 5 days a week and it'd be a waste of 3 pieces. I am including tops, bottoms, blazers, dresses and shoes. And, um, I'm not allowed to shop. I'm more interested in that part than anything else. I can't wait to see how much I've saved at the end!

If you're a tweetaholic like me, then you've seen this post floating around and the conversation surrounding it. I don't want my readers to get bored, but at the same time, I blog for myself and don't want to change it for others. I've come to the conclusion that I'll be doing a recap of my outfits after each six-day period; that way, I'll still be blogging about other topics and I won't feel pressured to update about the remix every day. If I do a photoshoot surrounding one of my remixed outfits, then I'll create an additional post about it.

I'm excited to see the outfits that other bloggers create. Miss Melissa did a fabulous job last summer. Isn't she darling? Please let me know if you're participating!


  1. i think that i have the same nikon :p

  2. I am sooooooooooooooooo looking forwad to see what you come out with. yeahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

  3. Yeah it'll be interesting to see what outfits you end up putting together for your 30 for 30. I think it's a really good thing and forces people to be more creative rather than relying on buying new items for outfit posts.

  4. I am so happy to see that you also chose SIX pairs of footwear!! I wondered about my choices. Narrowing down to six was so hard! I have some other posts prepared that I am dying to click publish on and didn't know how to incorporate them with the 30X30 going on so your idea to recap may work for me - at least once.
    Lucky you are moving so you can pack up the unworn. Mine are glaring at me with resentment at being left unused!

  5. Let the remixing begin. I will be outfit stalking your blog! ;-)

    And, YES to shopping at modcloth their prices are so, so good and their stuff is CUTE! xx veronika

  6. Good luck! and Melissa did a fantastic job! I loved her remix.

  7. Bah! Coyote! One of those scoundrels ate my cat.

  8. Look forward to your remixes and posting the pics a week at a time will definitely save your sanity.

  9. Oh my gosh Steph you are way too nice to me haha.

    Good luck with the 30 for 30! It's actually a fun challenge! I'm not sure I could do it every single time (although I give people props who can) but once and a while is fun!

    About that debate? Seriously? It's stupid. Don't worry about what she said. Just because a blogger is participating in the challenge doesn't mean they will suddenly become boring. You will meet tons of new bloggers :)

    A weekly recap sounds like a good idea!


  10. I always end up with pics on the camera that were intended for the blog but I never post...thinking I might have to appropriate your 'recap' idea :)

  11. Oh, My, that choccolate cake looks delicious! I can't wait to see your outfit post!! xoxoxoo

  12. Nickie, I'm sorry about your cat! Who knew that something so cute could be so vicious? :(

    Thanks for the comments, everyone! Much blogger love to you.

  13. I'm remixing too! already pretty definitely chosen the wrong items baha.

    love your gold court heels!
