My Apologies....

I went to Las Vegas over the weekend to spend time with my friends and family. On a particularly windy evening, I met one of my favorite people in the world for dinner- my girl Shana. We talked and talked and talked and over a glass of wine (or 5) and I told her that I've been really bored with my style lately. I'm bored with my style and my blog and my pictures. I feel like it shows. Every morning it's the same thing.."blah blah blah...I'm running late...blah blah blah...I threw this together..." To all 5 of you who read my blog, I sincerely apologize. 
Shana said to me, "You need to do the 30 for 30." (See the link for an explanation.) I have been toying with the idea of doing this for a while, but I have actually been scared to do it. Can you believe that? Scared. Of clothes. It's silly, I know. The point of it is to FORCE yourself to be creative. So, okay..I'm going to do it. And now that I have typed it in my blog, I HAVE to do it. I'm not going to let it stress me out. It's supposed to be fun. That said, I'm not going to make sure to wear a "30 for 30" outfit every single day. (Wearing a blazer and a skirt with my bikini at the beach isn't something I'm willing to do.) But, I will do 30 outfits out of 30 pieces of clothing. I think I need this challenge to get my creative wheels turning again. 
So, tonight I will be choosing my 30 pieces and taking pictures of them. This is the scariest part for me because once I choose them, that's it! I can't swap anything out! (Maybe I should back out now while I still have the "back space" option.) So, anyway, I'll be posting my pics tomorrow along with my first 30 for 30 outfit. Wish me luck!

P.S. In case you found that entire post boring, scroll down.

This greeted me at the front door of my sister's house in Las Vegas. What IS it?!?!?!?

    I love how funny you are and I enjoyed every line. I could totally visulaize you telling me this story. I totally feel the same way about the 30 for thirty. You just inspired me take the challenge. I will look at my closet this weekend and give it a try. Good luck!!!!

    Much love,
