Grumpy kitty. I blame her. camera got broken.
So I gotta put my 30 for 30 on hold for a little while, while we get it fixed. 
I might post this week some time anyway, just not an exciting (jk) new outfit post.

[30for30 - 4] I'm Bad at Post Titles

(yes, theres a newspaper on my porch. shhhhh)




I liked this a lot in real life. Not as much in these pictures. I say that far too often. Maybe there's something wrong with my eyes?

I was worried about putting this shirt on the 30. I bought it because it was really cheap, and I liked the ikat-y print, but I didn't know if I'd be able to wear it with anything I own. (Dumb move) Sooooo I put it on my 30 to force myself to wear it. What do y'all think?


(I think I'm hesitant about it because it has a good deal of orange in it. Maybe it'll make me stop hating that color so much.)

Byebye for now.

So MG gave me her old camera.  Which means I have a new camera!  So now I will post pictures of TG and EP (formerly EG) at the FM (Farmer's Market).

[30for30 - 3] Pretty Good News

Here's an underwhelming outfit (I am no good at yellow...)



Annnnd because I have nothing to talk about in terms of outfit-y stuff, here's my news for the week:

I don't know if I've ever actually said it on here, (because most readers know already, since most readers know me irl) but I have a leeeeeetle job at the art museum here. It has been a summer job/internship/something for the past 4 years, so my contract this year, again, ended at the end of August. But last week they asked me if I wanted to stay til the end of the year! Woohoo, I have something to do with my life (at least for a little while).

See ya tomorrow? I guess?

[30for30 - 2] Unprepared




So uh. I'm worried I didn't think this little challenge thing through enough and that none of the pants I chose go with the tops I chose. Although, apparently, this isn't completely horrible, because I just found this pin (seriously, like two minutes ago). Similar? Maybe?

In other news, Joe's backyard is a park (kinda).

Excuse my face:
I'm kind of obsessed with the colors in this picture...

[30for30 - 1] I Know How to Sew

I ran out of light so these pictures are poop.



I've had to re-sew two different buttons on this skirt. That's the only sewing I really know how to do. I feel like I should learn how to do more.
Otherwise, this is, perhaps, a underwhelming start to my 30 for 30.

Guess What

Seriously, guess.
I've decided to do a 30 for 30 challenge-o. 
Fun, right? Maybe more for me than for you. 
Or maybe no fun for anybody. We'lllllll seeeeee.
So um. I guess that means I should show you my 30 things, yes? I took these pictures sort of hastily so excuse the lighting and stuff. Pleaseeeee?

I am dumb and used that title for two reasons: because of the super neutral colors involved and the way I feel about the outfit. Perhaps it is just how I look in theses pictures. Perhaps it is the fact that I don't know how to wear cropped pants. But I don't really love this, and I don't really hate it.

I dunno.


Sweater/Shirt/Pants: Old Navy
Shoes/Earrings: Target


I got a skirt in the mail and then I was like this is barely navy so I will wear that blue shirt I love with it...
 Don't ask where my inspiration comes from.  I'm just a genius. (I'm kidding)
 I think I will not worry about the clothes and just work on my poses.  I wonder if creating new poses is a job...
Don't hate me because I have huge sunglasses.

I'm not a big fan of skinny jeans... or pants in general... but for some reason I enjoy rolling them up into capris like this
And sticking my leg out like a crazy person..

And wearing small amounts of bright colors...

Red lipstick makes me feel silly.  Also it makes me feel like Gwen Stefani.  See below.

Wearing White?




I just realized I wore a white "skirt" (for reals it was a dress) at the beginning of this week. But I got this skirt in the mail last week and really wanted to wear it yesterday so.......good for me I did.
It is really strange to me that I could have worn two (predominantly) white bottoms twice in one week because for the longest time I have been opposed to anything white. But if nothing else, the one thing blogging has done for me is make me feel more comfortable wearing colors that aren't black, blue, green or purple.

Also it rained (and hailed) yesterday and made everything so much less oppressively hot and I am so happy about that. Hooray weather!

Wow. I used the phrase "for the longest time" in this post and now I have this song in my head. You're welcome.

Day Off




Yesterday I didn't have to go to work, so I didn't actually have a reason to get dressed. And I didn't go anywhere, so I didn't have a reason to wear shoes. But this happened anyway. Hooray?

Mmf. Sorry I'm so bad at self-timed pictures.

I picked a bad week to post every day.
Yesterday I was not feeling very good all day, so, naturally I didn't try very hard to look good.
Also I am in a generally grumpy mood (probably mostly because of the weather?) so I feel like anything I write here will be dumb dumb dumb. So I'll just leave you with some mediocre photos of a super comfortable dress.
Byebye for now!

Polka Dot Peplum




Uh oh. I got a peplum shirt.
I didn't expect to like it (or buy it) when I was trying it on, but those polka dots are hard to resist. Still, I realize that both the peplum and the polka dots are kind of super trendy, and I'm not sure how I feel about that. I try not to blindly follow trends. But but but I like this. Ok. Shush.

So I put it on with some jeans and hoped it looked ok. Maybe next time I'll be more adventurous with it.
