On the first day of the 21 Day Challenge

(which was yesterday, but I'm just now getting this posted. See remainder of paragraph for explanation) I woke up tired and lazy on the first day of the challenge. I know, I said I wanted to join so as not to be a sloppy, lazy, stay-at-home mom.  But we camped this weekend, and my baby doesn't sleep, and I didn't get a morning shower and hey, here's another excuse!  So.

The prompt for the first day was to choose an item to remix 3 times in the challenge. For those of you not in the know on fashion blogging, this simply means to wear it in three different ways or outfits.  We were not allowed to choose jeans, but I wouldn't anyway. Instead I choose this straight denim skirt. It's hard to tell in the picture, but it has tiny dark pinstripes to give it a little interest. Today I went with an easy navy tshirt, which matched a lot better in my mind than in this picture.

And speaking of the picture, the Pirate will be serving as official 21 Day Challenge photographer, so there's no guarantee that you'll even be able to SEE my outfits in many of the pictures. This is one of his better compositions. (Hey, he's six and taking pictures with an iPhone, what do you expect?)

I don't plan to do a separate post for each days outfit, I'll probably just add them to the bottom of whatever else I write that day, but for the first day I thought I'd explain myself. Doing it at all feels a little weird, to be taking a daily picture of myself, especially when you consider my tiny wardrobe and my lack of real style, but I'm looking forward to participating.

Wardrobe details:
Skirt: Target
Shirt: Walmart
Bracelet: Life is Good
Shoes: Target (multi-strap flip flops, but the Pirate didn't manage to get them in the picture)

  1. I think the challenge will be fun and I bet The Pirate's picture taking skills improve along the way!

  2. Oh love your photographer. It will be fun. Look forward to reading more of your outfits :).

  3. Can't wait to see more! The skirt looks super comfy--hooray for summer skirts

  4. I'm horrible at putting stuff together for myself, yet I have no problem helping others do it. Eight years in merchandising helps!

    You look fantastic! Very skinny! Nobody ever thinks they look skinny but you do!
