When you make 30 outfits from 30 pieces, not all of them are going to be interesting. This is something I might throw together if I were running late and grabbed three pieces, or would be something I'd come up with if I packed outfits using these pieces and stayed an extra day and needed something to wear. It's not bad, but I don't love it. Mixing boyfriend jeans with a flowy top with a figure-obscuring jacket doesn't scream flattering, but it's actually much better than I had anticipated. The colors are nice, right?

I am 99% sure this top is going in the to-sell pile after this outfit. I have my other outfits planned, and I'm not feeling inspired anymore to save this one. Someone else will love her the way I couldn't, ya know?

On a happier note, the weather in Austin is perfect right now, and Jenn and her guy Dean are in town. I'm so excited to give them the tour of their lives and to be there to watch them fall in love with Austin! I'm off to brunch-stroll-shop-and-taco the heck out of 'em. Best. Staycation. Ever!

  1. Dean said he's most excited about the tacos but i'm allllll about the brunch-stroll-shop part- and of course seeing YOU! T-50 minutes!


    PS- I'm a big fan of simple outfits. Maybe it's due to the work traveling? When you only have so much room in suitcase, you start sticking with what works. Either way, I feel like this is something I would wear!

  4. I actually LOVE this outfit, Nicole. The shade of purple of that top is my absolute favorite color, and I think the pleats and flowers are really pretty. I love the way that plum and olive look together as well, and there's something so relaxed about this look that I love.

  6. This project has definitely helped you to see what items to keep and sell it seems. I like these types of outfits to show up on blogs sometimes too. Maybe not the MOST eye catching thing a girl's ever worn, but still put together and lovely. It shows the power of a good closet that things work.

  7. I love that this challenge is allowing you to give these lesser worn items in your closet a fair shake and decide whether or not you want to keep them. I feel like there are items I'll remix in front of my mirror at home and not be sure about them so I just take them off, and I think wearing them out in the world would give me a much better idea of how I actually feel about them.
