30 for 30 Remix

So i know a famous person. Sort of. Sort of as I really do know her and but i'm not quiet sure if she can be considered famous. =/  But I think she is Awesome..with a capital A.

My friend Kendi, who I went to college with, who was also one of my roommates & sorority sisters,  has a fashion blog, and she is totally cute. She started this idea called "The 30 for 30 Remix" where you take 30 items from you closet and create 30 outfits in 30 days. Its a great way to explore your closet, try something new (thats used of course) and also save money. Your not suppose to shop for 30 days either, which this should be the easiest part since I'm on a "stay at home mom" budget. =)

So this morning, while Hudson was suppose to be napping, I went to my closet and grabbed 30 items and took pictures of them in hopes that they will some how make cute outfits. I thought I was going to have a good 2 hours to do this and really think about each item and how i could mix it up with other things, however, Hudson decided not to nap.  So in the midst of hearing him squirm around in his crib and call out for me from to time I some how managed to squander up 26 items (4 pairs of shoes) and take pictures of them all in about 15 minutes.

I'm really excited about this challenge mostly because I love discovering new ways to wear the clothes I already have! SO everyday when danny comes home Im going to him take my picture in the outfit of choice and probably by the end of each week I will post my outfits for the week!

I think it will also be good for my marriage and myself! I do shower, put make up and get dressed everyday but lately its been just shorts and a t-shirt. I'm sure my husband would like to come home to something a little bit more spectacular. And considering I've never met the ladies he works with, I'm pretty sure none of them are wearing t-shirts everyday. ;) hehe!

Okay so Hudson is suppose be down for nap #2 right now and is crying =/ so I'm gonna have to wrap this up quickly...okay make that right back.

i'm back. apparently nap #2 isnt going to happen either. None of us like Mondays hudson, I understand, but I'm pretty sure a nap would help.

Okay so back to the clothes. Heres my items of choice: (sorry for the wrinkles lol)
