18 for 30?

Top: Shop Kempt Jeans: Silver Boots: Steve Madden Necklace: Shop Kempt

YAY FOR FALL! Can I just say how super giddy I am that it hasn't really really snowed here in Utah yet? Coming from San Diego, it is the #1 thing I hate about Utah. I hate living in the snow. By some stroke of luck, it hasn't really started snowing. It isn't sticking. I don't mind, and just hope it can hold off until we go to San Diego for Christmas :) That would be an entire fall semester without SNOW! WOW.

On another note...

I usually don't quit things. I like to start what I finish. But can I just say I am so over the 30 for 30?! I am struggling. I had all the outfits picked out and just hadn't finished taking pictures of all of them. Do you know how hard it is to take pictures of yourself in clothes around a 9-5 job? Um. Yeah.

The second something becomes like a chore to me, I am over it. So I am sorry to announce that I have decided to end at 18 out of my 30. I think that was a good run, no? 18 outfits for you all. 18 outfits and maybe you could get some clothes like this with a Meijer Promotional code.  I am not taking one more picture in those same clothes haha.

It really was a great experiment, and I did learn to see my closet in a whole new light. Some items of clothing I hardly ever wore, I ended up wearing way more then I thought I would or even could! So it was really fun to do that.

But have no fear, I still love clothes and would like to keep up with a once a week fashion post. So just expect to see more of the other items in my closet then you did before, like today's post for example :)

  2. I tried to do a face of the day around my work schedule and decided after 1 day that it wasn't going to work out, so at least you lasted 18 :) I do love your boots too!

  3. You look so put together! Adorable. :)
    And yes... I understand- life gets in the way of blogging... blogging needs to be FUN, and a hobby... not a chore.
    So don't apologize. :)

  4. You're so pretty! I love this outfit. I would get so sick of 13 for 30 too!

  5. I am in DC and we haven't had any snow yet either. It's cold enough but no snow. I'm from Southern California too. This is my first real fall and winter!

  6. Love the outfit! I've never attempted 30 for 30 because I already know I would get tuckered out.

  7. I don't know that I could do a 30 for 30, so It's OK :) I love that shirt and the boots are adorable!

  8. I probably wouldn't have made it that far :) Loving your boots :) Have a great day! Sierra

  9. I'm so glad you found my blog - because it introduced me to yours :)
    I hope you'll become a regular to mine like I am to yours... your blog is too gorgeous :-)
    You don't enjoy the snow, but I wish we had snow in South Africa! Sigh!
    Much love, Bailey from Vanilla Blonde

  10. i love your sweater, soo cute!

    ReplyDelete
  11. i love your bangs :)
    and it's still awesome that you made it through 18 of the 30 days. Not sure i could even do that haha.
    we still have no snow here either, which is actually really strange, being that I live in wasaga beach, ON and snow is always a disaster. I can't complain, though it would be nice to have some for xmas!

  12. I love that necklace! Such a cute outfit! I am excited to see the other things in your closet now that you're done with the 18/30!

    ReplyDelete
  13. I love your new bangs. I heart bangs. Also, I love the colorful new layout! So pretty. And I think it's totally OK to quit something, especially when it becomes a chore. I quit something that I wasn't passionate about, and I felt really bad about it for a while...but then I decided that it was OK to follow my heart and do something I love instead. It's not totally related, but sorta :)

  14. Ah I just love your hair at the moment, the colour and the cut is perfect! Can you do a blog post on your hair secrets e.g what products you use, do you dye your own hair. It would be much appreciated!

    ReplyDelete
  15. That is just fine! I think 18 is close enough. :) I've been so happy there hasn't been much snow too! Keeping my fingers crossed that it stays this way!

    ReplyDelete
  16. ok holy hotness! i love your hair and that outfit is super cute. and i think 18 out of 30 sounds just right. :)
    and yes! I would love it if we could get together while you're here! and i hope the snow stays far, far away until then.

  17. I liked them while they lasted! But I hear you on the taking the time to get them out.
    you've been taking them of yourself? How did you do that? tripod? I love the last one too.

    ReplyDelete
  18. love this post. I have that necklace and LOVE it.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Yay for non-sticking snow. I live in Washington (state) and unlike last year, there's barely been any lasting snow this year ... I am la-la-loving it! LOL.

    And 18 out of 30 is just as good. I mean, after all, you did see your closet in a new light ... so I wouldn't consider it giving up ... you learned something :b

  22. Don't worry - you got further than a lot of people I know who have tried it. I tend to think that 30 is just a lot... So I would never even try it. Maybe if there was like, a 15 for 15...

    ReplyDelete
  23. love those photos! and just for the record, I think it's hard to get a photo once a week for my belly shot...let only 30 days worth!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Super cute button-up!! So fun and colorful.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I definitely understand the feeling of when something becomes a chore! 18 isn't bad at all. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  26. I really love this outfit! And that last pic of you throwing the leaves was great!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I love this outfit but I totally understand the stopping things once they become a chore! I do the same thing! Haha. I am glad that you'll be doing a fashion post once a week still though!

  34. Its ok! 18 out of 30 is still pretty good. I tried to do a wardrobe challenge last summer and I also didn't make it until the end.

    ReplyDelete
  35. You are always so cute! I thought about doing the 30 for 30 and knew there was no way I could finish it! :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. I knew I would feel the exact same way if I ever tried 30 for 30--but I think you learned the entire reason behind it...use you closet more creatively!

    We never get snow here in South Africa and sometimes one does wish for a white Christmas rather than a Pool Party Christmas!
