Last night I had dinner with Elissa from Dress With Courage. We decided that it would be a good idea to meet, since we have already booked a room together and decided to drive to Austin together for the Texas Style Counsel Conference (see sidebar! Are you signed up yet? It’s going to be a wonderful experience for the community!). I’m super excited about the event and after having (a very long) dinner with Elissa I am stoked about spending more time with her as well. I felt right at home with her and I hope she felt the same.
I’m starting to look at things in terms of “should I wear this now or will I need it for the 30X30?” I plan to drag out the extra clothes rack tonight (I think separating out the pieces is going to be key for me) and get to work with my selection, so after that the rest of the week ought to be pretty easy. Anything NOT on the 30X30 rack!
I’m really nervous about the 30X30. I know I can’t be the only one to feel this way, but I can’t envision how my personal wardrobe is going to work. It’s all dresses and no pants. I plan to sub skirts for pants. I can’t wait to get to work on it tonight. I know that once I’ve got my selections sorted I’ll be much more comfortable. I plan to try and squeeze out 30 outfits before I even start and document them. I don’t HAVE to wear those 30 combination,. But knowing I’ve already sorted them out will make the actual challenge that much more fun for me.
So hey! I haven’t even mentioned the outfit yet! It was just a casual outfit. Worn to do a little shopping in the afternoon and then dinner out with Elissa. I got a couple of those body con skirts from Forever XXI recently and WHY did no one tell me how COMFORTABLE they are? I mean, I never considered them before, because I have such a pronounced tummy, but with an oversized top, no one can even tell. It’s like wearing pajamas for crying out loud.
