Days 25 to 27

Day 25: I’ve been wearing this blazer a lot more than I’d planned. It’s coming in handy as a nice neutral top for all the green bottoms I’ve chosen. Today, I paired it with snap wrap skirt by Portland designer, Erin MacLeod. I love her skirts. They are one size and have a row of snaps along the entire waistband. Just pick a snap and they fit. It’s hard to find her stuff though. I bought this at the Urban Craft Uprising in Seattle last year.

Day 26: It’s still colder than it looks, so after I took this photo, I bundled up again. The cardigan, tank and jeans combo is almost identical as Day 20 but I have a different tank, jeans, and boots. The jeans and tank are the same as my blazer challenge. This is a bit more casual than either of those days, I think. Perfect for walking the dogs.

Day 27: I can’t believe the challenge is almost over. At first it was fun, then it got difficult, then I got sick of it, but now I’m in a groove. Part of me feels like I can rework my 30 items indefinitely. But another part of me feels like a person who’s “taken a break” from her boyfriend. And when we get back together, I promise never to take you for granted. I’ll treat you well and shower you with attention. I’ll give you the respect you deserve. We were meant to be together. I’m sorry I left…oh, wait. We’re talking about clothes.

    Those Urban Outfitters boots look great on you! I recently saw a pair but passed them and am regretting my inactivity.

    Also, I’m jealous of the mild-looking weather in your photos, as Montreal is still in the throes of winter.

    That borrowed shih-tzu really brings the whole look together! 🙂
