30×30 Closet Challenge: Week 2

2 weeks in … 2 more weeks to go… Boy oh boy is this no shopping challenge eating me ALIVE!! I know you all might be thinking that holy jeez this girl has some serious shopping addiction. Well … first of all I work at BCBG Maxazria doing part-time sales and visual merchandising AND my discount is pretty fantastic AND within the last two week we received the CUTEST dresses, accessories, outerwear, cardigan’s for the holidays/fall. Oh and guess what … I CAN’T SHOP! But, hey if I have gotten through two weeks … I can get through another two weeks. The real challenge is going to be Black Friday, I can’t even begin to think the horror my friends are going to have to put up with for that week… oh and FYI last week I froze my credit card in a glass of water and its sitting in the freezer at this very moment ha-ha!! Yeah call me crazy … On the bright hand side it is FRIDAY and my looks for this week consisted of a color-blocking theme. Here are my looks for Week 2: 

DAY 8.

A spunky and fun play on the classic white tank top and dark navy denim – I love color-blocking burgundy and blue … the colors speak for itself therefore I kept it fairly clean with a chunky burgundy scarf, my navy cropped blazer and my cute cut-out burgundy booties. Accessories – complementary bracelet to my watch, bangles on the opposite arm and small drop earrings. 

Day8

Denim: Armani Exchange | Blazer + Booties: Urban Outfitters | Scarf: H&M | Tank Top: Topshop | Bangles: Alexis Bittar | Earrings: Miguel Ases

DAY 9.

Days I don’t have time to do my hair I wear my head wrap.., with this look I color coordinated grey’s and navy’s through my midi printed dress with a chambray shirt, leaving a few of the buttons open and tying a knot. Finishing touches – black booties to accent some of the black abstract on my dress, a statement necklace under the collars and a red lip. 

Day 9

Dress: Sirens | Chambray Shirt: GUESS? | Booties: Steve Madden | Head-wrap: Forever 21 | Bangles: Alexis Bittar

DAY 10.

This is the first time I ever wore my hair in a bun. Thoughts? Ugggh and I am wearing leather panel leggings but sometimes the sun chooses to be my worst enemy and completely ruin my pictures =| Moving along… I started this look with just a chambray shirt and navy pumps and looked in the mirror and said “MEH” .. So I incorporated this purple blazer, added some spunk through a print scarf and a handful of bangles … very fashion editor of me, don’t cha think?! 

Day10

Leather Panel Leggings: BCBG Maxazria | Chambray Shirt: GUESS? | Blazer: Armani Exchange | Pumps: BCBG Maxazria | Scarf: Ardene’s

DAY 11.

This was a fun look to put together … I synchronized majority of my outfit pieces in burgundy’s and blacks, a classic black and white printed houndstooth skirt, that I wore backwards to emphasize the zipper detailing and added in a contrasting pop of cobalt blue with my coat. I kept my hair tamed and clean with a ‘Snooki’ inspired poof and pony tail. Finishing pretty girl touches – drop earrings and a prominent burgundy lip.

Day11

Skirt: Sirens | Tank Top: Armani Exchange | Scarf: H&M | Knee-high Socks: Forever 21| Jacket + Booties: Urban Outfitters | Earrings: Miguel Ases

DAY 12.

I refer to this look as the ‘Three C’s’ – Comfy. Cozy. Casual. Starting with my casuals I coordinated with navy’s and greys through a chambray shirt, graphic tee and jeans. To transform it into a fall look I added beige and cognac highlights with my little fur vest and booties. Finishing touches – Rihanna’s Viva Glam 2 lip stick, my grey speckled beanie and a statement necklace tucked under my denim collar.

Day12

Graphic Tee: Aritzia | Beanie + Necklace: H&M | Fur Vest: Forever 21 | Denim + Chambray Shirt: GUESS? | Booties: Steve Madden

DAY 13.

Just another day Mr. Sun decided to hate me and ensure that my hat does NOT turn out burgundy in my pictures…  point to be noted – my hat is burgundy which I color coordinated to my socks. I paired leather on leather – jacket and skirt. To completely personalize my outfit I wore a printed animal tee and studded belt with different metals under the skirts hemline. Accessories – feminine drop earrings, spiked bracelet complementary to my watch and bangles on the opposite hand.

Day11 edit

Hat + Belt + Jacket: BCBG Maxazria | Skirt: Nasty Gal | T-Shirt: H&M | Knee-high Socks: Forever 21 | Booties: Sirens | Bangles: Alexis Bittar | Earrings: Leah Alexandra

That is a wrap! =) My challenge for next week is to incorporate my chambray shirt into just one of my looks and substitute the pieces that I have worn only once or not even at all for the pieces that I have worn a few times now. I am not going to lie … restricting myself to just 30 pieces of clothing from my closet is difficult beyond words as I love having countless options to choose from – especially shoes. Hence, it is definitely allowing me to be as creative as possible and have fun with my looks everyday. My favorite outfits from this week are Day 8 and Day 11… I love the beautiful appeal of maroon’s and bold blues together. Which is your favorite?!?! Leave me a line below and hope y’all have a kick ass weekend! Xo.

  1. Your hair looks really good in a bun! Could you do a tutorial for it sometime? My hair is super long and comes up to my thighs and it’s hard to put it in a bun. It’s forever slipping out.
    Thanks so much!
