Day 20 A Desire for Something New

day20c

Ok, it is day 20 of this 30 for 30 Challenge and I'm starting to get a little home sick from all my favorite stores. Christmas is fast approaching, so I really have no need to buy myself anything, but none-the-less, I still have a desire to go shopping for a festive dress and maybe a new coat. I'll bide my time though and have myself a shopping bonanza after Christmas.

But all these desires for something new hasn't impeded my creativity when it comes to dressing myself. Just today I was wanting to try something different that I haven't done yet; which is to wear knee-high socks with my boots and skirts. I haven't been able to go anywhere to search for new warm socks so I decided to hack a pair of tights that were much too small for my bum. Presto!! New socks! And if I was really motivated I could go ahead and sew the cuffs, but I might do that another day.

And since I had the day off today I figured I'd wear this outfit out to lunch with my sister. When it comes to eating out with someone who has specific eating habits, it can become quite the conundrum, but my sister, being a smarty pants, suggested we go to this cute little deli called Yorgos! They always have vegan specials so it made my choosing so much easier! I ended up eating a Tempeh BLT with herb vegenaise. It was delicious!

  5. Hi, Emily, fellow remixer and thrifter here, slowly getting around to visiting all of the remixers blogs. Looks like you are as big a fan of grey as I am and your sock solution was ingenious. Best of luck with the remaining challenge.

  8. For some reason this series of photos is EXTRA adorable! GREAT outfit, subtle use of color and color blocking, classic.

    I've a friend who just started a no-shop for 365 days. Nothing new. She can still thrift and buy hand-made. Ack. I could do it, I DO do it, but HAVING to do it, makes me nervous.

    Hope you've got a good pair of gloves!
