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

Jeans: Target

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. 


Shirt & Sweater: Macy’s

Jeans: Target

Shoes: Dillards

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!


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.


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.


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.


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.


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


today, you get tandem pictures!  for the weekend!

day 6: kim & chad at the church missions party!

I had a hard time getting dressed this day, so I finally went with this dress.  GOOD CHOICE.  I love this dress.  I could do without the pockets giving me extra business at the hips, but they’re not super extreme so it’s okay.
dress: gap
belt: target
shoes: born
earrings: anthropologie
bracelet: BP @ nordy’s

shirt: kohl’s
cardigan: dillard’s
tie: can’t remember (macy’s?)
pants: Target
shoes: macys’s

day 7: lunch after church @ d’bronx



Wait! Hold on a minute…Chad Here!  I really really like this look. And you can’t really tell but those are purple sunglasses.  Seems crazy but I love it!!!!
sweatshirt: target
t-shirt: target
jeans: target
shoes: target!


IMG_5635this is probably my favorite outfit so far!!  it’s great. I was leery of this shirt but it works.
shirt: loft
cardigan: target
skirt: loft
boots: aerosoles
necklace: loft
this outfit will make an appearance again after the 30 days.  YES!

Hey everyone,

So I’m almost a week into this challenge and I have to say…IT’S BEEN A CHALLENGE!!  It’s very hard for me to get ready in the morning.  Maybe I’m trying to push myself a little to hard to come up with creative ways to mix my wardrobe.  I mean I feel like just pairing a button down with jeans or slacks is kind of a cop out but maybe that’s okay and just something I have to come to terms with.  It’s very different to be a guy doing this challenge I think.  I feel like Kim and Lindsey have way more options to explore and can accessorize their outfits better to make even jean and a shirt seem more fun.  I dunno.  We’ll see how creative I can continue to be but I was really trying hard this week to really pair things together that I have never worn together before.  Here goes:

Day 3:


The cardigan, shoes, and jeans are all from Target and the shirt is from Macy’s.  I really liked this one.  I wore it with slacks to work that day but I thought it went much better with jeans and my plaid shoes.  Also…here’s a fun pic from Day 3 just to keep it interesting…..


Day 4: 


This pic is a little dark but I’m wearing my khaki slacks (Macy’s), blue striped polo (Target), grey zip up sweater (Macy’s), and my black shoes.  This one was just so-so for me but I’m learning. 

Day 5: 


Ok. This might be my favorite one so far!!! I really liked it.  Jeans are from Target, purple sweater from Macy’s, the brown button up is from Dillard’s as well as the blue and brown shoes.  I think I’ll have to remember this one for when this is over.  It may just have to be my day 31 choice!  🙂

So that’s all for now……Chad Out.

ps…. Look for an exciting tandem post for Kim and I’s day 6 choices. 

Chad here again.  Here are my first 2 days of the 30430 challenge. I hope to post twice a week or so and had some time tonight so I’d thought I’d go ahead post the first 2 days.  Also, I’m pretty sure my least favorite thing about this challenge is going to be taking a pic of myself everyday.  I think it’s weird and I’m incapable of taking a good picture of myself.  But anyways here we go….

Day 1: (sorry again about the bad pic)


I chose this one before I actually chose my 30.  I think they are all good base pieces that should have been included.  Khaki’s from Macys’, Cardi from Target, Shirt from Banana, Shoes from DSW.

Day 2:  


This was my first real attempt at mixing things up a bit.  I was actually really excited about this one.  I don’t think I would have ever normally worn this shirt with that cardigan. I just got the brown cardigan for Christmas and have been having trouble figuring out what to wear it with.  It came from Dillards.  The shirt is form Banana again and the pants and shoes are repeats from yesterday.  I’ll have pretty limited options for pants and shoes at work so don’t be surprised if you see a lot of repeats there.  

I’m already thinking more about how I can mix up these 30 things.  It’s gonna be fun.  Stay tuned….. Chad Out.

Hello all!

I know what you’re saying. Ummm….this is Kim’s blog. Who the heck are you?  I’m Kim’s friend Chad and I’ll be guest posting from time to time while we are doing 30430 together. She told me how she was doing 30 for 30 again this year and I decided to jump on the bandwagon.  I have accumulated let’s say a large quantity of clothing over the years.  My problem is that I don’t really know how to mix and match things in my wardrobe into new outfits.  I’m hoping by doing 30430 that I will learn how to have more fun in my closet when I’m getting ready to face the world every morning. So…let’s get to it.  Here is my 30.  I will say that this is like my first ever real blog post so I’ll apologize in advance if this doesn’t work out the way I want it to.


Most everything has come from Target and Macy’s.  The majority of the button downs have come from Banana Republic.  A lot of these items have been in my closet for years and a few of them are newer.  I’m super pumped to see how I can mix and match these items into 30 new and exciting ensembles.
