And now for something completely different. . .

This entry isn’t about ice cream (or my apartment, or any other type of dessert).

It’s about fashion. And starting this Monday, I’m participating in the 30-for-30 challenge, started by Kendi on The challenge is to wear 30 items of clothing (shoes included) for 30 days, forcing you to re-mix and re-thing what’s in your closet (oh yea, no shopping allowed). And since I have a closet full of clothes of which I would wear the same handful of items the same exact way over and over again if I didn’t force myself not to be lazy and boring, this challenge seems perfect for me.

Hopefully at the end of it, I will have saved some money, found some new awesome outfits in the things I already own, be able to clear out some of the things I know I won’t wear, and be able to more strategically think about what I buy, instead of just shopping because I’ve had a bad day.

So for the next month-ish, you can check in on Mondays (not counting this Monday) to see how I’m doing with this.

I keep changing the 30 items of clothes I want to use for the challenge, but here’s what I’m pretty sure the final item selection will be:

  1. H&M Black Cowl-neck Sweater
  2. Uniqlo Black Long Sleeve V-neck
  3. Uniqlo Blue Turtleneck
  4. American Apparel Turquoise V-neck T-shirt
  5. Urban Outfitters Purple Peacock T-shirt
  6. Nordstrom Rack White Lace-trimmed Tank Top
  7. Nordstrom Silk Ruffled Blouse
  8. Topshop Red and Blue Plaid Shirt
  9. Nordstrom Purple Cardigan Sweater
  10. Nordstrom Magenta and Orange Floral Cardigan Sweater
  11. Nordstrom Faux-Fur Vest
