opting out.... but another challenge mayhaps?

The lovely Kendi has announced another 30x30 for the winter season. Although I love watching what she and everyone else comes up with, I think I will pass this time around. In the last edition I definitely struggled near the end, and while I think I've learned my lessons regarding fit, silhouette, and pattern, the last one kind of had me in a funk regarding clothing that hasn't totally disappeared yet. I think I may wait til the Spring edition.
I DO leave for 7 days though come February, so maybe I should give myself a mini-challenge around that? A ten item limit perhaps? Hmmm... I'll have to think about that one. I'm notorious for bringing far too much stuff with me when I travel, so it will definitely be a challenge!

Anyways, onto my outfit. This one reminds me of something Sydney of The Daybook would wear. I love this blue & yellow combination.

cardigan - Zara (2010)
button down - Smart Set (2010)
belt - thrifted (2009)
trousers - Dynamite (2011)
heeled penny loafers - Aldo (2010)


  1. cute yellow cardigan,I love this mustard!

  2. blue & yellow is one of my favorite combinations! you look fabulous!

  3. I actually think your outfit looks very "Kendi". The blue plaid reminds me of her blue gingham shirt. I lovelove your trousers.

  4. I have on a blue and yellow mix today to at my blog! We are so twins!!!

  6. I love your dress pants! Now I'm going to have to go to Dynamite to pick up a pair.

    The 30x30 challenge is impressive. I don't have a crazy amount of clothes, but limiting the items to just 30 it intense. The only way I think I would survive is jeans & shirts. Packing for trips is always a good excuse to play dress up to decide on what to bring.

  7. Oh how I love mustard! Your outfit is very put together - love it! You should give yourself a mini challenge! I'm doing the 30 for 30! I'm going to try my hardest to stick to it!


  8. Great outfit! Loving the yellow with the neutral colors!


  9. Great colour combo! I'm nervous about the challenge but I've already chosen my 30 pieces! Soon you will be in the heat!

  10. Melrose I am soooo sorry I have been MIA.
    Life has been a little crazy.
    Maybe if you dont want to join Kendi's you can join 30/30 - which is TOO LONG for me ! - you can join Jane's wardroble capsule.
    This will be my third time, she is doing it in february.
    I have to add that this outfit is perfect. Mustard and grey love each other.

  11. I love this!! Professional, yet fun and so preppy.

  12. Super cute outfit! Great for work and after. I love the belt.
