Outfit: 30x30 Day 1








NOW Discount Red

This month’s outfit post titles are going to be easy, aren’t they? Day one of the 30x30 and I am excited to be started at last! This top is the only new thing in my 30 items. I know some people buy a bunch of new stuff to include, but to me that seems to go against the concept of working with what you have. I would have bought this top anyway as I have been looking for one like it for a while. It occurred to me last week that I could include it in my 30 items as I had ‘striped top’ down on my list, but hadn’t committed to which one at that point.

This is the long awaited purchase from Forever 21 and to give them their dues, the quality is fantastic. It was less than £20 and the cotton fabric is really thick with plenty of stretch so it will hold its shape well. The sleeves and body are super long - perfect for a tall girl like me. Expect to see it remixed quite a few times!

I was pleased to find some navy tights in my drawer as I don’t think black ones would have fitted with this really.

So, I forgot to put lipstick on again this morning. I was going to add my bright red, but managed to leave it at home so I’ve had to settle for a slightly more subtle red. Perhaps this could be my own addition to the challenge: remember to put on lipstick before I take my pictures.
