I know it’s taken me long enough, but here’s number 26 of my summer 30 for 30 challenge. I was originally planning on sucking it up and taking all the photos for my remaining four outfits this weekend, but then Irene ruined those plans. Damn you Irene!

For years I’ve tried to successfully pull off a headscarf and always felt more like a pirate than fashionable. Keiko Lynn did a great tutorial on how she ties her head scarves, so I figured I’d try it out and loved the results!

My hubby said I looked like the Chiquita Banana lady but then again, the last time he made fun of one of my outfits I ended up on MTV Style, so he has no credibility in my book.

A Tree No Longer Grows in Brooklyn

I noticed while putting this post together that all of a sudden, the tree is gone. This spot is my go to spot for quick photos, and there was always a tree in the background. Now there’s just a stub.

I asked my husband about it and he said some city sanitation workers had come by earlier in the week and they took it down, citing something about it being dead and “about to fall and kill someone”. Guess it was a zombie tree. Jokes aside, I was tremendously sad by this because just the week prior, I had spotted a nest full of baby birds inside a hole in the tree. All I can think about now is if those baby birds are okay and if the sanitation workers even noticed they were in there. My husband being the sweetheart he is tried to assure me the mother bird probably took her babies to safety, but I don’t know.

Sad.

I’d Forget My Head If It Wasn’t Attached

I’ve been quite forgetful the past week. First I totally forgot I had left these jeans at the local dry cleaners to be altered. When I remembered, I was like “Yay! Another option!” I had totally forgotten I had included these when I originally picked my 30 items.

Then when putting together my post for today I noticed I totally skipped over this day 11 post, and went straight to posting Day 12. Whoops! I guess I need to get more sleep or something.

Fundraiser

This is what I wore Thursday of last week.  My husband and I attended a fundraiser that evening to benefit the Woodstock Animal Sanctuary.  It was held on a rooftop here in Williamsburg, and there was amazing vegan hor d’oeuvres, cocktails and entertainment.  We had heard about the event last-minute the night before, and after hearing it was going to be held so close to home we had to swing by and check it out.  All the proceeds are going to go towards repairs and improvements for the sanctuary’s duck pond and pig barn.  I have yet to actually visit the sanctuary myself, but being it’s only a two-hour drive north of the city I’m making it a goal of mine to get there before the end of the summer.

All in all we had a fantastic time and I had to opportunity to meet and network with more vegans from the area, which is always fun.

I had attempted to take more photos at the event, but again we had gray, crappy weather and none of my images came out well.  Here’s hoping the weather breaks sooner rather than later!

WTF Weather?

I noticed when putting this post together that for the vast majority of my photos for this challenge, it’s been all rainy and gray outside. I don’t know what the hell is up with this weather, but by the looks of it we haven’t seen sunshine in ages. That or the sun only comes out when I’m at the office and then disappears on my ride home for the evening.

Pink and Red

I don’t know why but every time it’s rainy and gray out I want to wear this blazer.  I also was not about wearing heels either, and the only flats I really chose as part of this challenge were my red ones.  Who says pink and red clash?  I think it looks pretty rad.

Thrifty

Thrifty

Every 6 months or so I go through my wardrobe and figure out what I’m no longer wearing as well as what items I want to update my look for the upcoming season.  This season, I decided instead of purchasing mostly new items that I was going to purchase the most of the items I was looking for at my favorite thrift and vintage stores.  Not only did I pick up near everything on my list (except for bathing suits), I got a few bonus items as well.  Not to mention I spent loads less than I would have buying all this stuff new.

I ended up with…

  • A neon pink Calvin Klein blazer
  • An army green Zara blazer
  • A D&G short sleeved cardigan
  • A white leopard short-sleeved cardigan
  • Several synthetic silk blouses, most of which were from the 60’s. 
  • A funky patterned red maxi skirt
  • The most amazing cascade jacket with pleather arms!!  Made by a label called Gender Bias.
  • Black and white polka-dotted high-waisted shorts
  • A black and white spotted sweater.
  • An awesome 80’s purple and black sweater dress
  • An 80’s fab gold jacket.  It was so loud I had to try it on and it ended up looking awesome.
  • J Brand wide leg jeans (only $3!)
  • 2 pairs of peep toe flats (vegan)
  • A black and white scarf in a cool pattern

I’m probably missing from this list a bunch of other items buried in this pile.  I’m excited to start remixing these items into my wardrobe stat!
