 Ten! Ten outfits! We're a third of the way through, kittens! I hope y'all are enjoying this challenge. I can't wait for it to be over, partly because I'm itching to wear other items in my closet, but mostly because I want to look back at all the mad remixing I've done! I'm planning to do a check in at the half-way point to give y'all some insight on my process and how it's going.

When I bought this shirt, I clearly did not even wait two seconds before giving up my card info and getting it shipped to me. I wanted a raglan tee so badly that I'd settle for almost anything. Unfortunately, I don't love this shirt. I didn't realize the grey sleeves didn't go all the way up to the collar, and the white section makes my shoulders look funny. It's also really big on my through the middle (I carefully selected photos where you couldn't tell so much though, haha), which makes it harder to style. The fabric is much thinner and...impressionable? than I expected. Like, every time I grab or pull on a part of the shirt, it leaves a stretched mark. Not. Cute. Especially a problem when tucking and untucking! When the challenge is over, I'll probably end up putting this top in the to-sell pile and start hunting for a replacement.

This is the first time I've worn this skirt this year, but I can already tell it's going to be on replay again this spring and summer. I already came up with a new favorite way to wear it using other pieces from my 30x30, so stay tuned for that!

  1. Oh no! I hate when I buy and later dislike something. So frustrating. Doesn't look bad though!

  2. Im so glad to hear you dont love this shirt... only cause it is sitting in my J. crew cart right now! Even though you dont love love love it I do love the way you styled it! As always you look GRRRRREAT! 20 more to go!!

  3. You're doing such an amazing job with this challenge! All the outfits you've put together are so cute!

  4. I can't even tell that you're doing a 30x30. Seriously.

    And that skirt is perfect AND thrifted. Jackpot.

  5. Sorry to hear about the shirt - but I think it looks great with the necklace. LOVE that you're using that skirt for the challenge! Can't wait to see what else you pair it with the next couple weeks.

  6. what a bummer that the shirt isn't as perfect as expected. Hopefully you can find the perfect replacement soon!

  7. I see what you mean about the shirt, that stinks! The good thing is, I didn't realize it until you pointed out, so maybe others won't? It looks comfy though. Maybe try it with your red chucks? My fpabsolute fave way you've worn this skirt is in the hello sunshine post :)

  8. I didn't see it till you pointed it out,but can see what you mean. Oh the other hand, it is still a cute look with especially cute lip color too.

  9. Love a good baseball tee- goes with so much! Thought it looks like this one didn't really get your stamp of approval. ;)
