30 Days of Denim – Day Thirty!!!

Oh you all!

We have reached the end! I can’t believe that I put together 30 outfits that I actually thought about in advance (well…you know, more or less) for an entire month. Style Blogging is no joke! And don’t worry, it is not in my future.

Thanks again for coming along for the ride and not shouting “You’re so vain!” in the comments section.

I have learned A LOT over the last 30 days and I will wrap and recap in another post, but for now, how about we talk clothes.

Here’s What I Wore Today:

30 Days of Denim - Day Thirty!!!!

Earrings: Mom hand me down
Necklace: Gift from my mom (Dude, my mom is nice.)
Cardigan: Merona for Target, obvs
Belt: Target
Dress: Target
Shoes: Old Navy

My favorite part of this outfit is my hair which you can’t even SEE in that picture, but how hard is taking a picture of your hair where your face looks cute? So hard! It’s a fun braid, but you can hardly tell. You will have to take my word for it.

Thanks again for playing along. I’ll recap on the flipside, friends!

Hope you all have a great weekend!

30 Days of Denim – Day Twenty Nine

I’m running out of shirts to wear that I haven’t worn yet which is both a good and a bad thing. Bad, because hey! No one wants to run out of clothes to wear. (Although this challenge is almost over so it’s a mighty convenient time to run out, really.) Good, because now I know I can pretty much go 30 days without repeating a shirt — which means I need to acknowledge that saying “I have nothing to wear,” is dramatically crying wolf. And now I have told it to the internet, it’s practically written in stone. I can be more stylish, I just have to *gasp* TRY!

Anyway, I was glad to see this shirt was available this morning because it’s blousy. And do you know what blousy means? No one *ahem* has to feel guilty about not working out yet this week. (Quick check of the calendar, yup, it’s Thursday! OY!) But because I CAN look a gift horse in the mouth — I’m smooth like that — I put it on with a pair of jeans that are somewhat unforgiving just to punish myself.

It made a lot more sense this morning when I picked out my clothes (before I had coffee.)

Here’s What I Wore:

I tweeted this morning that my pants either fit perfectly or are a bit too tight. After looking at this picture I think they are right in between the two, but I’ll take it.

Shirt: LOFT
Jeans: Gap 1969 Perfect Boot
Shoes: Isaac Mizrahi for Target
Bracelet: Target

30 Days of Denim – Day Twenty Eight

The inspiration for today’s outfit?

Dry shampoo.

More accurately, me being a little sleepy and not wanting to wash my hair — meaning, what can I wear with a headband? Well glad you asked, I’ll show you.

Here’s What I Wore:

30 Days of Denim - Day Twenty Eight

Headband: Gap
Earrings: Mom hand me down?
Necklace: Target
Cardigan: Halogen for Nordstrom
Tank: Mossimo for Target
Jeans: Old Navy The Diva Skinny Jeans
Shoes: Target Clearance!

And for the record, I don’t feel like a flasher in THIS particular cardigan. Maybe because it’s pink…

30 Days of Denim – Day Twenty Seven

Well I’m running low on cardigans so you know the end is near. If I have discovered one thing, it is that cardigans are definitely the major items punctuating my style statement.

Here’s What I Wore Today:

P1030976

So squinty!

Cardigan: Old Navy
Tank: Merona for Target
Skirt: Gap
Belt: Target
Yellow Flats: Target
Bracelet: Target

I love this tank because I never have to think up a necklace to wear with it. That’s lazy fashion for you. I think some celebrity should “design” a line of clothing that is 100% accessorized for you already. Hollywood glamour, already attached to your pants! and sweater! Right? RIGHT?

Ok maybe not. But it’s a nice tank top anyway.

30 Days of Denim – Day Twenty Six

When I woke up this morning all the power was off in our house. Irritating. I scratched my head feverishly in hopes that it would help me figure out a way to brew coffee with no electricity (we have an electric stove) but to no avail.

Instead of sitting around staring at the wall (in the dark) I took my book light (good thing I got new light bulbs, eh?) to the closet and picked out the brightest, most obnoxious shirt I could find and then built an outfit around it.

Here’s What I Wore:
P1030970

If there was ever an excuse to wear chartreuse, right? The rhyming makes me feel like this would make a good title for a children’s book. Although this outfit should never be mentioned in the context of children’s books though because all day long the sweater has kind of make me feel like a little bit of a flasher, and we could never work that into the plot because the would be kind of awkward.

P1030973P1030974

Sweater: Gap Outlet
Chartreuse Tee: Banana Republic Factory Store
Necklace: Target
Tank: Gap
Jeans: Old Navy The Flirt Jeans
Shoes: Old Navy

Maybe I’ll try to work this outfit into the plot line of my Young Adult Paranormal Romance Novel.

Maybe not.

30 Days of Denim – Day Twenty Five

So I may have mentioned how lazy I feel already today, but it should be repeated: I FEEL LAZY. Yet these groceries, they don’t shop for themselves you know? I don’t know how we have gotten to 2011 without Costco figuring out that they should offer some Amazon type delivery service.

Why Costco, why??

I think at the end of this coming week, when I have denim’d myself out after 30 days and am doing some reflection, I will say to myself, “Next time, Holly, give yourself the weekend off.” Because on the weekend? I am not my most fashionable self. And for the most part, I am okay with this.

Here’s What I Wore On My Great! Costco! Adventure!

P1030967

It’s a shock that Vogue isn’t beating my door down right now isn’t it?

Sweater: Old Navy
Tank: Mossimo for Target
Jeans: Gap Slim Boyfriend — yep, picked them up off my closet floor this morning. How’s that for gettin’ real?
Shoes: Target Clearance Rack. No brand, just an owl logo?

I’m of the opinion that they don’t call it lazy Sunday for nothing, and I’m just doing my best to abide by the rules.

30 Days of Denim – Day Twenty Four

Hola!

Very busy day that included celebrating my cousin Chelsea’s 1st Birthday. And we all know that celebrating a child’s birthday involves eating lots of cake right?

I celebrated like it was MY JOB.

Here’s What I Wore:

P1030958

After 24 days I figured you could use a change of scenery, so this is my mom’s backyard.

Earrings: Target
Sweater: Merona for Target
Shirt: Gap Outlet
Belt: Target
Jeans: Gap Slim Boyfriend
Shoes: Missoni for Target

These are the second pair of shoes I scored at the Missoni Madness and boy do I LOVE THEM:

30 Days of Denim - Day Twenty Four

They will be a fun pair of flats to have around this fall. You know, assuming it starts to actually feel like fall, instead of just being a bazillion degrees out every day. UGH.

Hope you are enjoying your weekend!

30 Days of Denim – Day Twenty Three

Pssssst!  It’s Friday night!  And I will admit to finding Rihanna’s silly “Cheers to the freakin’ weekend” song slightly less annoying when I hear it on my way home from work on Friday nights.

Only slightly though.

What happened to Rihanna?  Remember when she was cute and innocent?

Now she’s like *cough* Pass the Jameson while I smoke a cigarette *cough* Avril Lavigne and I need another DRINK! So sad! I mean, it can’t ALL be blamed on Chris Brown, can it? Maybe one of her tatoos can be blamed on him, but the rest of it??? I don’t know.

Anyway, what was I saying…

Ah, yes. It’s Friday! And do you know how I feel about that? About like this:
P1030956

Are you gettin’ what I’m puttin’ down here?

And here’s a more normal-ish picture of what I wore:

P1030954

Sweater: Mossimo for Target
Tank: Mossimo for Target
Jeans: Old Navy The Diva Skinny Jeans
Shoes: Mossimo for Target
Necklace/Earrings/Headband: Target, YOU KNOW!

Shiny face and squinty eyes courtesy of the blazing hot as balls sun. Thanks Mr. Sun!

I hope you have a fantastic weekend, whatever your plans!

30 Days of Denim – Day Twenty Two

I put on this outfit this morning not thinking too much about it, and was greeted by a gentleman waiting for the same elevator who said to me, “WOW! YOU’RE A GIANT.”

To which I responded, “You must be single.”

Well, at least I said that in my head anyway. I’m only 6’1 in these shoes, and I hardly think that qualifies as GIANT status, now does it.

Just to make sure, let’s consult Andre:

Just what I thought: he says NO. But then again he said that from the dead, so I don’t know how reliable that whole conversation was in the first place.

Here’s What I Wore:
P1030953

Earrings: Target
Shirt: Banana Republic
Jeans: Ross
Shoes: Merona for Target

Some people just don’t know when to hold their tongue.

30 Days of Denim – Day Twenty One

Everyone prepare yourself, I’m about to do something CRAZY! Ok, not really crazy, just crazy FOR ME. I’m going to mix patterns. Well, um sort of.

Boy all of this build up for something so ridiculous. You see, I saw this photo on pinterest the other day and I thought — hey, that doesn’t looks so bad. Maybe I could try that.

And because it was stripes on stripes, we all know my closet was clearly fueled with some ammunition.

Now my version was not quite as fashion-y, but surprisingly I feel pretty comfortable in it even though it is (OMG) two! different! patterns!

Here’s What I Wore:
P1030934.JPG

Sweater: Gap Outlet
Shirt: Banana Republic Factory Store
Jeans: Gap Slim Boyfriend
Necklace: Banana Republic
Pewter Flats: Target
Bracelet: You’ve seen this one a million times. I like it, I guess.

I asked Garrett to take a detail shot so you could see the stripes-on-stripes effect and this is what he took — the boy is many things but detailed-fashion-shots for the blog are not his area of expertise…

P1030941.JPG

Not a detail of my face, babe! A detail of the shirts!

P1030942.JPG

“But a detail of your face is cuter.”

And then I did of the obnoxious adorableness. Feel free to barf. I might actually miss taking silly outfit photos in the morning when this little project is over.

We have absolutely no idea what we are doing, but hey at least we are having fun pretending!
