Outfit: 30x30 Day 28





NOW Discount Red

Yep, Saturday night’s outfit will have to count as number 27. We ended up getting out on the bikes when the rain stopped yesterday afternoon (although it did start again and we got a bit wet). We cycled 9 miles and then called in on the young man’s parents. We ended up staying there for tea and then returned home in time to watch Top Gear. I am a bit achy today, but it saves me from having to go to the gym this evening.


Clearly my brain was elsewhere this weekend as I realised last night that I had actually saved pair of shoes #6 on Saturday. They were the silver flats I got for just £8 from Priceless Shoes. I had the same pair already in white from the show in 2009 and when I saw this pair in silver I got them to replace my worn out pair of silver flats that I already had. That’s all 6 of my 30x30 footwear saved now, so the next shoe challenge will be on Thursday when I can wear a different pair of shoes.


So, on to today. I left it up to you, readers, and you have spoken. By 10 votes to 4 you voted that I should add another dress to my 30 items to replace the one that has mysteriously gone walkabout. So here you go. The dress that has been drafted in at the last minute. It may get a further outing on Wednesday to earn its place in my 30 items, or this may be its only appearance. We’ll have to wait and see. Only 2 more outfits to go after today, and my enthusiasm for the challenge is wearing a bit thin now. I’ve really enjoyed doing it, but I am ready to wear something different, especially where my shoes are concerned. I think I made good choices though as it took until day 28 for me to be ready for a change. I’ll be doing a full review of the challenge once it’s over on Wednesday.

  1. I love red and purple together! Great colors going on here.

  2. Thank you! Kasmira often wears purple and red and I think that's where I got the idea from.
