Two Many Times

Day Two

Olive Vest- Zara
Cream Tee-Walmart
Belt- Ardenes
Maxi Skirt- Self Made (DIY instructions)
Cognac Booties- Aldo (Hidden)

I don't know how many times I have said "I Love Maxi Skirts for Fall"...but I'll say it again...I LOVE LOVE LOVE them!!
So part of the 30 for 30 challenge is not shopping for the whole 30 days as well...and I may have broke that one already...but here's the issue...what counts as shopping?  I went to the dollar store to buy some craft supplies...these supplies will likely be used to make christmas presents, and things to sell in my Etsy Shop...but who knows those supplies might also be used to make myself something pretty.  I realize that if we were going to get technical about the "no shopping" rule that would mean no groceries, no toiletries, no postage stamps...etc.  So did I break the rules or not?

Love, love, love your skirt! Actually, I love your whole outfit. ;)

Hello from a fellow remixer & fashion blogging mommy! ;) I love your outfit, & I'm super jealous that you can pull off the cute maxi skirt look. At 5'3'' I always feel like a long skirt makes me look frumpy. Blah. But you, on the other hand, look great! Good luck with the rest of the remix!

I love the skirt - beautiful!!

I think the shopping pertains to clothes, shoes etc for yourself. You're good! :)

Love maxi skirts.

Emma at Daily Clothes Fix said...

Yay for maxis, I wore one today too. And I think you're fine on the shopping question - it's just no clothes shopping.

I'm always so jealous of women who make maxi skirts seem effortless. I'm a shorty, so I feel like they swallow me up. Yours is perfect, though.
And your shopping isn't cheating.

Well as long as its not shoes or clothes I'm sure everything else is fine...

You look awesome, love the vest and the maxi skirt! I really need to make one!

Daphne said...

very nice look and I do not think the type of shopping you did would be against the rules.
