Chad again.  I’m playing quite a bit of catch up on my posts so you’re gonna get a lot of days in a row.  So let’s get to it!

Day 13: I thought I needed some color for this one so I added a tie.  I felt really super fancy all day but overall I think it was a winner.

Shirt: Banana

Shoes: DSW

Jeans: Target

Day 14: I look so dumb in the picture!!! I’ll be so glad when I don’t have to photgraph myself everyday!  Overall, I like this.  I think it shirt it pretty good and I don’t think I wear it enough.

Shirt: Banana

Shoes: Dillards

Day 15: Not sure why this pic looks so yellow?  Oh well, I was probably just jaundiced from being sick for like 3 weeks when this was taken. Who knows.  I got this shirt for christmas from my mom (Hey, Mom!) and I really like it.  Good call, Mom!

Shirt: Dillards

Jeans: Target

Shoes: DSW

Day 16: This one was okay for me.  This was probably more like day 22 then day 16 and at this point it’s getting pretty hard not to repeat things.  I think I picked to may cardigans and sweaters and not enough shirts.  Lesson learned in case I do this again.

Shirt: Banana

Cardigan: Dillards (also from mom for xmas)

Jeans: Target

Shoes: Dillards

Day 17: Since it snowe for like 2 weeks straight or something like that we got to wear jeans to work a lot so my poor slacks I picked haven’t been getting much use in the 30.  But if you don’t know me I LOVE the color purple (just to be clear…it’s the actual color not the movie) which makes me feel really good about this look.  I think it looks good on me and I will most likely wear it like 1,000 more times.

So that’s all for now.  Check back really soon for more picks of my 30.  I finish up this Saturday but I have way more pics to post by then!!

Chad Out!

 

okay, here we go, home stretch.  I am really, really unimpressed with my expensive camera and my crappy photographer skillz.  these pictures have been so, very, terrible, and it makes taking them even more annoying.  anyways, you thought we’d quit complaining about that? no, sorry.

day 21:

easily, EASILY my least favorite outfit of this whole business.  I wore this to church and it was just bad.  I don’t like it even a little and I just felt uncomfortable the whole time I was wearing it because it was so unflattering and so NOT a good combination.  you will not see this combo ever again.  I feel like the tights were what really pushed it over the edge of no good.  also, this skirt is proving to be not versatile even a little.  it is still okay with a navy tank top, but I am glad that I got it on clearance and didn’t pay full price for it.  I AM going to give it one more chance before the end of the 30 and see if I can do it a little better.

day 22:

okay, disclaimer, there was no way I was going to be able to get from my car into school without snow boots, and my plan was to bring other shoes in my bag and switch them when I got to school, but then….I forgot, so you get one random outfit with rogue pink boots in them.  sorry, #rulesfail.  other than that I am REALLY into this outfit.  this remix is really bringing up a love for this top for me.  it is so great and I really should wear it more often than I do.  (also, you can’t tell in the photo, but it has a lot of really skinny stripes all over it.  stripes ftw!)

necklace: ???  (it was a gift from carrie.  thanks carrie!!)

day 23:

this outfit is not really anything new, but I like it just the same.  also, pictures make me think that these skinny cords are not as awesome on me as they could be.  I feel like they look great in person, but maybe not so much.  this shirt though, WINNER!  love it.

bracelets: banana outlet (these are on their last legs and I’m pretty sure the elastic is going to snap next time I wear them.  it’s been a good run, bracelets.)

day 24:

sorry about the too-dark photo.  I am pretty pleased with this outfit.  I love this shirt so very much.  I have so many versions of tiered tanks from loft that it is ridiculous.  I just think they are so flattering.

day 25:

so, I wear these tights a lot.  you’ll see them again in my last set of days.  I’ve never worn this dress with a skinny belt but I’m okay with it.  I almost wore a cream-colored skinny belt instead, but went a little crazy with the pink.  in hindsight I think the cream would have been a better choice, but whatev.  it’s fun to go a little crazy.  this dress came with a belt/tie made out of the same material and business as the dress, but the belt loops were too low and it was just not that flattering.  once I ditched the one that came with it and started using my own belts up a little higher, this dress turned into such a winner.

FIVE! MORE! DAYS!  I am ready.  I don’t think I picked enough casual clothes for me to have as much fun this time.  lesson learned.  and chad and I were talking at church today about how very excited we are to wear the rest of our closets.  SO! READY!  also? somuchcutestuffattargetrightnowitkillsme.  ready to go shopping.

Okay…I’m way behind here, but I’m gonna try to catch up before this whole job is over! Go go gadget…typing fingers?

Day 10. This outfit made it abundantly obvious to me that I really need to buy a belt. This one looked okay, but it was super uncomfortable (btw-this belt has often been a critical element in my pirate costume, where it is not generally so ouchy and slippy).

Day 13. I’m a big fan of this little jacket, but I don’t get to wear it very often. It is good for when the weather is nice, but it’s hard to fit under my winter coat. I will keep trying!

Day 15. I grabbed this cardigan as a trade for the leggings I had originally included in my 30. Kim says they don’t count if you wear them like tights.

HI!!!!  Remember me?  That guy who posted on Kim’s blog like a month ago?  Well…..I’m back.  After a few snow days and a month of being sick, I’m finally starting to become a functioning member of society again.  I think I’m like 5 days behind in my 30 which is supposed to end on Tuesday but i’ll try to get up what I have over the next few days in what I’m calling 30 for 30 MEGAPOSTS!!!!!!!  So here you go 5 days of of my 30.  I pretty much fail at remembering to take pics of myself everyday so I’ll post what I have so they may not be in chronological order but oh well.  Here we go:

Day 8:  I really like this shirt.  I feel like it was a good purchase when i got it.  Pretty sure this was just a day in while I was sick so I didn’t really try to hard.

Shirt: Banana

Jeans: Target

Shoes: Target

Day 9: I wore this to church on Ash Wednesday.  I like this one overall.  I’m not crazy about it.  I think the best thing I like is my shoes.  I didn’t wear them for a long time cause they hurt my feet but now I’ve broke them in and I really love them.  I get so many compliments on them.

IMG_1231

Shirt: Dillards

Caridgan and Jeans: Target

Shoes: DSW

Day 10: Y’all.  I love this caridgan. It’s like my favorite thing. I’m glad I’m learning to wear it with different things. This whole outfit came from Target except for the shoes.  They came from DSW.

IMG_1234

Day 11: This one is kinda the opposite of my Day 5 outfit.  But I really like it.  I would have never guessed that purple and brown looked so good together.  WHO KNEW!!! I didn’t.  And sorry about all the bad photos.  I really hate posing for pictures.  I always feel like I look so dumb.  Oh well.

IMG_1236

Shirt: JC Penny’s

Caridgan & Shoes: Dillards

Jeans: Target

Day 12: This was another lying around the house outfit I think.  The whole thing came from Target and the shoes were from Dillards.

IMG_1239

That’s all for now.  Looks for Days 14-18 coming up in a couple of days!!!

CHAD OUT!

so I’m super behind.  you’d think that what with having FOUR snow days I would have managed time to do this.  NOPE.  #puzzleprobs
so I’ll be bringing my last updates in groups of five over the next 3 days.

day 16:

this was definitely not my favorite, but it’s not awful.  every time I see myself in a picture of this shirt I’m just not that excited about it.  this is noted for the future.

day 17:

I am SO! HAPPY! with this outfit!  I wore this top a lot last year, but pretty much always with the same skirt and necklace, and I haven’t worn it that much this year.  it is a tiny bit too big.  BUT, I have a newfound love for it and now I want to wear it all the time.  I have had to restrain myself from wearing it like 6 times during the 30 days.  this is the kind of thing that I think the 30 for 30 is really good for.

day 18:

this is another snow day outfit, but I can’t remember if I did actually wear it anywhere.  whatev.

scarf: target

day 19:

this is kind of a fake outfit due to one of our snow days.  I didn’t actually wear it anywhere but it’s not so bad.  I’ve never worn this dress with a wide belt, but I think it is a good plan.  I am also pretending here that I can wear my hair in a side braid.  this is a facade.  it doesn’t actually do that.  it’s way too straight and there is way too much of it to be able to do anything like that.  there are a lot of bobby pins involved here.

IMG_5783
dress: old navy
flats: born (this dress really needs a different pair of shoes than any of the ones I have in my 30, usually I go with off-white ones).
belt: target (I LOVE THIS BELT!)
necklace: francesca’s

day 20:

ehhh…this outfit is okay.  really, this shirt is too big and it doesn’t photograph well.  but it gives me hope that maybe someday a wiksten tank would work for me.

stay tuned.  days 21-25 include my least favorite outfit, as well as four that I really really like.  bye!

so, this post has some of the worst pictures ever.  I know that we need to just like get over it, but taking a picture of yourself every day is so annoying.

day 11:

2nd day of PTCs.  and the worst day of conferences ever, I might add.  we were SO! SLOW! and it made for SUCH! a boring day.  I don’t know if this picture fully conveys our extreme boredom.

day 12:
what in the heck worst picture ever.  lindsey, I hope your house is finished being built soon, because the lighting in your current place SUCKS!  also I look like I’m maybe 12 in this picture.

IMG_2648

this outfit is pretty cute, even though this shirt is a little too big for me.  I had to wear something pink for the basketball game I was working because it was “cheer for the cure” night.  in all honesty I don’t know how I feel about stuff like that.  I mean….I think that cancer awareness is important, and something we should support, but I don’t know how much stuff like that really has an impact on anything.  do basketball players wearing pink socks really make a difference?  I saw a tweet last october that said something to the effect of “how about NFL players donate their salary to cancer research instead of wearing pink?” and I am honestly still thinking about it.  anyways.  I’m getting off subject.

day 13:
this is the day that I remembered that there is a giant mirror in the laundry room, and taking my own photo gets a little bit easier.

IMG_2665

the chili cook-off was tonight, and I did not make chili.  I was kind of thinking that my chili is nothing super special,  BUT, I totally should have made chili, because the winner (and also my personal favorite) was EXACTLY like my chili.  although then I guess we would have had two that were exactly the same.  whatev.  anyways, I made normal soup instead.  well, not normal soup, but soup that was not chili.  last week I tried this soup from a box, and it was one of the best soups I’ve ever had, so I tried to recreate it.  I couldn’t find a recipe anywhere, so I kind of went from one that was a little similar and changed it up to try and make it like the one in the box.  it was good, but not as close as I wanted it to be.  it needs more sweet potatoes.  also, tomatillos are pretty annoying to work with (albeit delicious).  anyways, moving on.

I wore this outfit out to dinner with my grandma.  I took her out for her birthday and introduced her to sushi.  it was super fun and awesome.  if you know my grandma you know how awesome it was.  she was super into it and it was so fun.  hbd to e-mac!!

This involved travel and bowling! It was a little tricky to plan ahead.

Day 5

This outfit was kind of blah, but not too bad for car travel. I really like this shirt, but I usually wear it with a necklace. It is definitely missing something.
