ok, so I have decided I would like to get thru this 30 for 30 thing a lot faster than I have been. I have a bunch of delightful dozen items piling up and I would really like to wear them and get them sent out to the next girl. So, each day this week I will be taking an item from the 30 pieces and styling it 2 different ways. I must be crazy because I can hardly get 1 outfit post up and now I am planning on 2. I am off to a good start because I got both pictures taken this morning already.

Today we are working with my mustard pencil skirt from J.Crew. I think this might be one of the most versatile pieces in my wardrobe. I feel like everything goes with it. For this first outfit I styled it with my pink lace top. I add a metallic belt and since its snowing out, I added a vintage cape. No, the cape is not part of my 30 items, but it’s cold and it was keeping me warm while I was taking pictures. Its just a coat and the outfit can stand on it’s own with out it.
