As simple as this outfit is, it's definitely one of my favorites so far. I'm not a super complicated dresser. I don't like fussy accessories or too many layers. Give me a classic print, a well-fitting pant, and a pop of color, and I feel put-together and stylish. As much as this challenge is teaching me to try new and unexpected pairings, I'm also learning the benefit of going for the obvious.

Sorry for being short on words today--it's allergy season in Austin and I need to go stick my face in a pot of steam somewhere. How was your weekend?

  1. I seriously cannot even tell you are doing a 30x30! and everytime you wear those shoes I freak out a bit, i LOVE them! I even clicked through to contemplate buying them but there was a notice that said "runs a half size small", and my equivalent wasn't available. do you think this is accurate? did you order a half size up?

    also- what's your schedule like with 30x30? I like the way you're doing it because it seems like a realistic schedule (that I could actually do!) are you wearing the outfits in 30 consecutive days and then blogging them when you are able? just looking for some insight. keep up the good work!!

    ♥ perfectly Priya

  2. thanks girl! i love them too, even though i am no good at wearing heels. the site said that they run small, but then the reviews mostly said that wasn't true, so i ordered my size and they fit perfectly!

    i'm going to do a post on how i've been doing my 30x30, but i'll spill here. since Briley does my photos, we shoot all the outfits i'm going to wear in the upcoming week. as for what i wear day to day, i may not be wearing the outfit i post on a particular day, but i am only wearing items from my 30x30. i was initially just going to do a "what i learned" post at the end, but i think i'll add a check in at the halfway point and explain my ~process~ better!

    ps. do you have a button? i scoured your blog looking for one yesterday, and all i could find was the post where you talked about wanting to make a new one. i want to add your bloggy to my sidebar!


  3. Another winner of an outfit!! I generally like unfussy outfits too! Most days I forget to add accessories!

  4. Perfect. Thanks for reminding me that I NEEEEED a bright pair of colored heels.

  5. you could totally wear this outfit with your teal heels, black pants, and same top! would be so cute.

  6. LOVE those heels, aaaaand love this project, and loovee the second to last pose you are doing!
    This project is giving me some much needed ideas! <3 <3

  7. Amen to all you said about this outfit.

    You knocked it out of the park with this outfit (I'm such a sucker for classic prints and pop of color shoes!)

  8. This. Outfit. Is. PERFECT. I am utterly in love with it - I would wear it in a heartbeat! I love that blouse, and those pants are incredible. AH! Nicole! Why are you so cute?!?!
