2: Gingham & Leather

Shirt: J.Crew Factory | Sweater: H&M | Pants: Lauren Conrad, Kohl's | Booties: Betsey Johnson Ziah | Earrings: F21 | Necklace: F21 | Watch: Kohl's | Bracelet: American Eagle | Ring: H&M

I have this thing where I can't look at gingham without visions of lollipop guilds dancing in my head. I blame it on my upbringing. So anyway, if you've ever wondered what Dorothy would have looked like riding a motorcycle down the yellow brick road, this is probably the closest thing to an answer you're ever going to get.

It just occurred to me that I never actually explained what a 30x30 is. Even though I bet most of you already know, just in case: the lovelywonderful Kendi at Kendi Everyday made up this challenge where you pick thirty items from your closet (including shoes, not including outerwear and accessories) and only wear those things for the next thirty days/thirty outfits.

Laundry optional.

    1. DO IT. They're heaven. No front pockets though, which is probably okay if you're not a 12-year-old boy (or you know, me) who highly prioritizes having pockets in which to place your treasures.

  6. Sam, I realy need to get my hands on those leather???? pants or is it waxed, doesn't matter, I take it hahaha, only Problem there is no Kohl's in Germany tze. Maybe they are still available when I am flying over the Atlantic Ocean in December? ;-)
    Dorothy would be such a killer motorcyle bride in that outfit hahahaha, you have the most craziest imagination, I love it I am the same way. My bf calls me a weirdo quiet often hahahaha :-)

    1. They're fake leather, but it's definitely not coated. I haven't loved any coated denim I've tried yet :\ I hope they're still around - you should just move here sooner!!

    1. Yeah, maybe like a month ago? Get there soon and maybe you can still find them. For the price, you can't beat them. They're not super shiny, and they don't make weird squeaky sounds when you walk. Winning! ;)
