20 & 21: Up/Down

Blazer: H&M | Dress (as top): BCBGMAXAZRIA Marta | Skirt: J.Crew | Shoes: Sam Edelman Portney | Earrings: F21 | Watch: Fossil

Thanks for all your support and ideas on my last post. Budgeting is one of those things that shouldn't be hard (you spend until you run out, then you stop, right?) but it just is. The good news is, I'm sick of sucking at it, so by the time I graduate in May I'm determined to make a habit of much healthier spending habits.

Time for more sequins: I'm planning to wear the top outfit for my last day at my internship (if you're gonna go out, go out with a bang!) and the bottom outfit for night-before-my-best-friend's-wedding festivities. Both are well after my 30 for 30 is over, but I wanted to share these outfits now since I discovered them while playing around this month!

Time for more 30 for 30 propaganda: trying to come up with fun things to wear with 30 pieces instead of 100 pieces is, in my super scientific mathematical estimations, roughly one bajillion times easier. You  don't get overwhelmed or frustrated or scary mad (oh, I'm the only one who has meltdowns over clothes? Girl don't play) and "I have nothing to wear" moments don't take up my precious shower minutes in the morning.

Can you tell I'm peer pressuring the hell out of you guys to do this with me next time? 
January 1st. Mark yo' calendars.

Also, if you've got an hour or three to spare, check out all the lovely ladies on my blog roll. I love seeing which blogs other people follow and I realized I kind of missed the bus by not having my own favorites posted! If you're interested in swapping buttons, email or tweet me.

Linking up with Still Being Molly for #YOLOMonday.

  4. I love how you've styled your hair in these looks! Also, I'm totally thinking about doing a 30x30. What a great way to think outside of the box within your own closet!

    1. This made me laugh SO MUCH. 1) You're too, too sweet and 2) you might fall over dead if you knew how long before these pics it had been since I washed my hair. (TMI!!!)

      You shouldn't have told me you're thinking about 30 for 30ing... now I'm going to badger you :)

  7. Absolutely brilliant ways to wear a sequin dress! No wonder you are in Law School. You are a genius. The second look is my favorite! I love the belted look and may have to copy you sometime;) I might join you Jan 1 on the 30 x 30 challenge too! Girlfriend needs to cool it on the shopping! FYI: I refer to myself in third person sometimes and as "girlfriend." Oh, and THANK YOU so much for featuring me on you blogroll! So honored and reminds me to update mine:)

  9. um break downs over what to wear? while staring at all the clothes you willingly purchased and still not knowing why in the world you would spend money on that? and then vowing to try to figure it out anyway but then just wearing the same old sweater and scarf?

    nope, that never happens to me.
