30 for 30 Day 16

leave a comment »

la

Yeah…so I have officially swapped out that Gap white v-neck for the American Apparel one.  I didn’t take a picture of it so from now on it’s just going to be listed only.  I just…wasn’t feeling it.  I know, I know.  It’s a white tee, what’s to feel?  But you know how some white tees are just better than others and that is part of why girls need to own at least 5 white tees at all times?  Yeah, that is what’s going on here.  You may also be wondering what’s up with the fact you can barely see the white tee.  I was trying to turn a cardigan into a sweater.  For the most part that scarf covered the tiny bit of white that was peeking through.  Obviously it didn’t cover it completely which is why you can see it in the pictures, but that is what I was going for.

The pieces in outfit #16 are:

Madewell Skinny Skinny Jeans, Foundry Wash

American Apparel White V-Neck Tee

Madewell Pointelle Cardigan, Poppy

Cole Haan Brookings Cap Toe, Brown

ACCESSORIES:

Madewell necklace

H&M scarf

30 for 30 Day 15

That’s right, folks.  Day 15.  I reached the halfway point of this challenge (and yes, about 10 days behind everyone else…whoops!)  But this outfit introduced a few pieces that haven’t been worn yet…I still have one or two left.  Can you believe that?  Halfway through and I still have pieces that I haven’t worn yet.  Sheesh.  Somehow, even with only 30 pieces to choose from I have found myself in a clothing rut.  Fantastic….

The pieces in outfit #15 are:

Madewell Back Zip Legging Jean, Chasm Wash

Gap 3/4 Button Sleeve Crewneck Sweater, Heather Grey

Madewell Blazer, Ink

Cole Haan Air Zelo Ballet, India Ink Suede

ACCESSORIES:

J. Crew Factory Necklace

30 for 30 Day 14

So remember that day last week when it was all warm and fabulous, before the weather got wintery again?  Well this is what I wore to run errands that day.  This is ALL I wore.  NO COAT!  Can you even believe that?  And do you want to know the best part?  I wasn’t even cold.  And not only was I not cold, I was actually on the verge of being warm.  Ahh, it was so nice.  Too bad it didn’t last long.  But that thaw gave me spring hope, so I know that the warmer weather is around the corner.  I mean, it has to be, right?

The pieces in outfit #14 are:

Madewell Skinny Skinny Jeans, Foundry Wash

Gap Deep V-Neck, Heather Charcoal

Madewell Perfect Chambray Shirt, Light Indigo

Cole Haan Air Zelo Ballet, India Ink Suede

ACCESSORIES:

Vintage necklace

30 for 30 Day 13

This outfit was kind of a “womp womp” one for me.  It looked good in my head, and then I put it on.  Yeah…not my favorite.  But I was opening and therefore leaving for work 2 hours before I would normally have been waking up so I wasn’t conscious enough to come up with another outfit.  That being said, I dislike it less in the pictures than I did in real life.  Not much less, but still.  I guess that is the nature of this remixing beast.  Some of the outfits will become new favorites, and some won’t.

The pieces in outfit #13 are:

Madewell Overalls, *Wash unknown

Madewell Tribute Tee, Pale Sea

Madewell Catnap Cardigan, Pearl

Cole Haan Brookings Cap Toe, Brown

ACCESSORIES:

American Eagle belt

I don’t really know what to say about this outfit, other than that I liked it.  It’s pretty much my standard uniform: cardi, tee, and jeans.  I did throw on my new captain’s wheel necklace.  I didn’t remember to take detail shots (b/c you know, I never do) so I’ll link to it, here.

The pieces in outfit #12 are:

Madewell Skinny Skinny Jeans, Foundry Wash

Madewell Tribute Tee, Prune

Madewell Twilight Cardigan, Cream

Cole Haan Brookings Cap Toe, Brown

Madewell necklace

Well well well, Boo is just racing along!  He’s actually pretty close to wear he should be.  And I’m pretty sure that he’s way further along than me!  What can I say?  I must be slacking!  I picked out his outfit for Day 12.  It’s fun when I get to dress him b/c he picks out my outfits a lot too!

THON style

leave a comment »

I’m taking a tiny break from the 30 for 30 to share a little something with you guys.  This weekend is Penn State’s Dance Marathon, or as it is more commonly known, THON.  THON is a 46-hour, no-sitting, no-sleeping dance marathon that raises money for pediatric cancer research.

My first experience with THON was my sophomore year of high school.  My best friends and I went up to PSU for an N*SYNC concert and we stopped by Family Carnival (a mini-carnival to sort of kick off the THON season).  I was so amazed to see all these college kids giving up their Saturday to play with little kids.  I didn’t get involved with THON my freshman year of college beyond a few stand shifts with my fraternity.  As pledges, it was our job to make sure that even in the middle of the night, our frat’s dancers could look up into the stands and see people there, supporting them.  By sophomore year I got involved as a moraler.  The role of moraler is to be there for the dancer, whatever they need.  Dancer needs a foot rub, that’s on you.  Dancer wants some cantaloupe, run out during your breaks and get some.  Cheer them up and keep them awake and happy.  It was great!  My morale team was amazing and I couldn’t have had a better time.  Junior year I was a moraler again and my best friend was on the team with me and my other bestie was my team captain.

I danced my senior year and it changed my life.  It was the hardest thing I’ve ever done but it was the best experience of my life.  If I could, I would dance again in a heartbeat!

So that’s the very short run down of my THON history.  I have a ton of posts up about THON on my old blog and I encourage you to check those out.  But even if you skip those, definitely check out the THON site–they will be live-broadcasting the event too!

3. THON videos

 

Here are a few of my favorite THON looks:

Our team had a wild west theme that year so in addition to rocking the orange, we also busted out the cowboy hats!

There are different activities all through the weekend–our morale team had a surfer dude photo cutout as well as hula hoops to play with so obviously the coconut bra was obviously a necessity!

But things are a little different when you are a dancer.

For one thing, fanny packs are acceptable:

Crowns are encouraged!

The brighter the better!  And a little bit of face paint never hurt anyone either 😉
