Days Ten to Twelve

Day 10: I second-guessed myself when I added boots to my 30 pieces. Boots? In June? Well, I’m so glad I did. We’ve had rain and cool temperatures and the boots have come in handy. Today I braved the crisp weather in bare legs but I did keep my toes warm with my thrifted boots.

Day 11: I caught a bit of sun today. Don’t worry—I wore sunscreen. It was a great day to take off from work. I walked my dog, enjoyed a leisurely latté, and stopped to take pictures of wildlife at Lake Larson. I saw a blue heron, ducks, and red-winged blackbirds. No turtles today though. Later I went to a concert with a friend. I felt cool enough to go from the lake to the show—mainly because of my rock ‘n’ roll cuff. This is my first repeat in the 30 for 30. On Day 1 I wore this dress. This time, I skipped the belt and swapped out my accessories.

Day 12: It’s Gay Pride weekend in Seattle. I met friends for drinks in Capitol Hill this evening and I wanted to be colorful for the celebration. I wore a tank top with multicolored sequins and painted my nails to match. I added blue and purple temporary streaks to my hair, but I have to say, in the photos, it kind of looks gray. Not exactly what I had in mind.

  1. I have the same rainbow sequin tank from Day 12! I love how you’ve dressed it up for Pride here. That maxi skirt is stunning. The mix of basic pieces with special designer/boutique items is fab.

  2. Thanks Laura! I like mixing high- and low-end items (not just because I can’t affort head-to-toe high end :P). The skirt was a splurge and it took me a while to wear it (I had serious buyer’s remorse for a while). But I like it and I’ll use it now that I’ve figured out what to do with it.

  3. I really love the Day 10 outfit! That bright pink is so pretty and I love the edge you gave it with the studded belt and boots!

  4. Thanks! I just hope the weather gets nicer so I can remix it with sandals!
