To Make my Brain Hurt

During past Fashion Weeks I’ve banked pictures for my posting ease.
(and also to take advantage of the skillz of Miss Lexi my brilliant photographer)

This year is no different.
Last week, I roped Lexi into a photo adventure at a beautiful local park full of changing leaves.
(and croquet sets which give me something to do with my hands)

Okay, so here's where it gets a little complicated.
Not only am I participating in Fall Fashion Week, but I’ve also just started a 30 for 30.
(30 items of clothing ONLY for 30 days)

In the past it didn’t matter that I wasn’t actually wearing the outfits on the days that I posted them.
Except with the 30 for 30 rules … This year it matters.
Plus, I had to take into account that once I run out of Lexi pics and I'm back to the tri-pod,
I'll go back to posting pictures the day AFTER I wear an outfit.

Does your brain hurt yet?

Dress: Thrifted; Tights: Target
Boots: Rocket Dog; Necklace: Express
Earrings: Vintage (they were my step-grandmothers)

You should have seen me trying to figure out what I'm wearing this week and WHEN.
I’ve somehow turned a fun blog project into a complicated calculus equation.
I have a special knack for making life complicated.
It’s a gift.

Wait until you see all the lovely ladies participating in Fall Fashion Week this year!!!
Check them out right HERE at moms are for everyone.

Which is pretty much what happened to me last week. I started out all excited, and by the end of the week I was stressed that I had worn some shade of orange three times! Hahaha! It was super nice to get up yesterday (and today) and no worry about who was going to see what I was wearing! hahaha!

Lexi said...

Aren't you glad you caved and got that dress? Purdy as every. Happy to be your paparazzi :)

Clare B said...

Good luck with your challenge - I think this is something I'd struggle with, especially if your needed a slightly different outfit everyday.

Sarah said...

Ooh, can't wait to see how 30 for 30 goes! What a great idea.

Emery Jo said...

oh my, that sounds like quite the challenge!

that dress is absolutely adorable. oh, and i love the photo of you and the leaf. too cute! :)

KillerB said...

Oh man, I can't wait to see how your 30 for 30 goes-- I've thought about doing one of those eventually (but I'm scared!)

I love that you are playing croquet in those boots. Perfect.

That dress is gorgeous!!

Amanda said...

I'd be living in that dress! I have something kind of similar, but not nearly as cute as how you wear it, and it's so easy and comfortable for errands and park gallivanting. And don't get me started on your boots. All boots should have buckles! I've decided!

Kristin said...

Love those boots lady! They look fab with that dress!

Peace Love and Leener said...

Those boots and dress go so well together. Love it. :)

E said...

That does sound like calculus, but at least you'll look cute doing it! Love the dress.

Lydia Marie said...

I love this dress with the tights and the boots! And good luck with the 30 for 30, I'd love to do one too but I'm too chicken right now.

And your hair is gorgeous btw, I love the color!

Olivia said...

So what I want to know is if I saw you right now would you be wearing that?? It is very cute!

katie said...

the for-real photoshoot idea is a lot of fun! love the croquet, and it makes me want to go out and play in the leaves. =)

Charlotte said...

That dress is a perfect fit for you. What a great thrifted find!

Mandy said...

Cute, cute, cute!

Rachael said...
