Happy Monday morning, Stylenation. Did you have a good weekend? I had some serious issues getting home from work on Friday (in that it took me 3 hours to travel 25 miles!) but aside from that, my weekend was pretty relaxing. I hung out with fella, ate some good food, did some baking and went shopping for new gym clothes (to motivate me to keep getting to the gym and all) and serveware for our upcoming Thanksgiving dinner. I planned out my menu last week and realized that I don't have many serving dishes. Namely, I don't even have a platter, and we're making 2 turkeys. So that has been remedied thanks to a trip to Target. This will actually be the 7th Thanksgiving dinner I'm hosting, but for whatever reason I just haven't bothered with nice dishes in years past. Anyway yes, I'm a total nerd when it comes to cooking and cooking-related things, I'm totally psyched about Thanksgiving, and I plan things ahead to a really annoying degree.
But on to the clothes. Today is the first day of the 30 for 30 Fall Challenge. You can see my list of 30 items here. The first day is pretty exciting because I can wear anything out of those 30 items. Although I already am trying to plan the whole week's worth of outfits (see above on annoying planning tendencies) so that I don't run out of clothes. This may be trickier than I thought. Not long ago, I wondered about pairing bright colors together. I've actually paired pink with green before, but it was subtle, so I didn't think much of it. I like the color combo, so I went with it again today. You may remember that I paired this dress with both this necklace and this cardigan here, but not in the same outfit. I like the green and green, and like the added punch that the pink belt seems to give the entire ensemble. The tights are these animal-print tights, although you can't really see the detail in this picture.
Edited to add Necklace detail:
Fellow 30-for-30ers, are you ready to get started? Jude's excited to cheer me on. Have a good Monday!
