30for30: Day 1

EDIT: I just recounted my clothing items and realized I only chose 20, instead of 30. I am bad at math and totally failing the math section of the GRE. Will add 10 more items tonight! 

And we're off! Below are my 30 picks for the next month, minus the clothing currently on my body and one pair of jeans, which are still in the dryer. Not pictured are the belts, scarves, coats and jewelry that I'm allowed to wear, but which do not count towards my 30.

I tried to pick a variety of things that I can layer, that do not totally clash, and that are work appropriate (as I spent most of my days at work). Also, I am not big into shoes, as you can see. I hope these three pair will suffice. Cross your fingers!

And as for my first ever outfit photo...

As you can see, I had no idea posing for an outfit photo would be so difficult. Do I put my hands on my hips? Do I look to the side, or straight at the camera? Should I stand on my left leg, smile with teeth or without, stage a scene of some kind? I finally settled on just standing there, and feeling a little bit dumb. Hopefully I'll get better at the whole posing thing as the month wears on.

Today's outfit is my favorite brown skirt (Old Navy), which a shirt my mom bought me last time I was home (Kohl's). Brown shoes from Ross and green tights, because I love tights and we're getting past the time of the year where one can scooter in bare legs and not freeze.

See you tomorrow for Day 2!
