Lucky Number

Sweater: Banana via Plato's Closet, $4 // Shirt: Urban, $15 // Jeans: Forme, $20 // Boots: Forever 21, $30 // Headband: Urban, $5

This sweet embellished top is a piece I fell in love with right away but didn't anticipate wearing all that often. While I have worn it several times for going out, this is its first appearance on the blog. I included it in my 30 items with dressier ensembles in mind but later thought, why not put a casual spin on it? That's just what I did yesterday by layering it over a sweater for work. That's one of the great things about the 30 for 30. It really encourages to use your clothes in new and interesting ways that might not have otherwise occurred to you.

Simple but super sweet outfit! I think the headband helps tie it together.

I love the color palette of this outfit! It suggests spring to me without being blatant, somehow. :)

Splendid. That blush color is so sweet with the beading. And I love your braided headband besides!

I also appreciate how the 30 for 30 challenge forces you to find new ways to wear things.

You are the queen of remixing dressier items for more casual wear. I love this, and keep getting more and more wooed by those boots!

You look so cute =) I love the casual-if-ication of your sweater!

The brown belt really helped to make that blouse seem work appropriate.

A very similar remix might be belting the blouse under a thick knit cardigan. Good luck on the rest of your 30!

That's one of the reasons I love the 30for30 challenge. That blouse and headband are so cute and I love the way you made the outfit simple with jeans.
