Day 21: Stripes are for Sunday

            • Jeans: Matalan
            • Striped top: Marks and Spencer
            • Purple cardigan: Marks and Spencer
            • Boots: Clarks
            • Wooden red beads: George@ Asda

I missed the Everybody, Everywear Breton Stripes day last Tuesday so here I am working the look today. It has been quite some time since I last wore this stripey top and it just shows how quickly fashion changes as it feels very short compared to the tops I have been wearing lately.

These are yesterday's jeans and you can tell they've been worn for two days as are looking decidedly baggier this evening. They are also slightly too short to wear with boots but I just about get away with it, I think.

Those with eagle eyes may have noticed the new button on my page. I have signed up to Kendi Everyday's 30 for 30 challenge and the rules are that you have to pick 30 items from your wardrobe and wear only those 30 items for the next 30 days therefore, creating 30 looks. Shoes are included but accessories, jewellery and coats are not. The other rule is that there is a shopping ban for the duration but since I am already on a self imposed shopping ban I don't have to worry about that part. The reason I have decided to take part is that I feel I would like to step up a gear in my remixing which has not yet been properly tested yet. The challenge starts on the 1st February and I have been jotting down some ideas but have not yet finalised my list. I will have to make a final decision  this evening and will post the list tomorrow.

  1. Good luck on your challenge. I've just completed a similar 12 month challenge and worn a different outfit every day for a year. Except I was allowed to shop. Really brave of you to do the 30 for 30 so early in your blog but I'm sure you'll love it and learn loads.
