Unlike Sequins, I have few exciting things to update because I’ve spent the last 4 days bed ridden from some weird lung thing (still waiting on my blood test results) so I’ve had pretty little going on in my life aside from The Biggest Loser (13 of this season’s episodes are on Hulu!), ANTM (has anyone else been watching the US vs UK?! I’m gettings so competitive), and Dance Moms (<3 that show!).
I’ve also been taking some time to think about what I want to achieve in life and think about ways I feel like I can help myself be happier in life. I predict some good changes coming my way.
Also, today was the first day I felt well enough to get out of bed which was perfect because it was day one of our 30 for 30 challenge! I hope you guys enjoy all our upcoming outfits because things are sure to get interesting!

This is my "My Lungs Are Killing Me From the Inside Out" Face. Hot, I know.
Anyone else out there feeling under the weather? It seems like a lot of the bloggers I read have been sick lately so something’s sure going around!
It’s kind of (really really) fun to kick off our 30 for 30 project in April, because my birthday is today! Yay April Fool’s Day! (Just in case you don’t believe me, I’ve included proof).
My first outfit for the 30-for-30 adventure is a really pretty (vintage??) dress I picked up at a thrift store. I loved it, but knew the length was too long. I had every intention of trimming it, but I wanted before pictures first. I styled myself up, grabbed Monsieur and the camera, and we went outside to grab a couple shots. I took one look and fell in love–it’s the perfect length already, I thought! I don’t want to cut it, I thought! It’s so perfect, I thought!
It’s true–but only if I’m willing to wear heels with it. Which, I’m not, I thought. So I grabbed the scissors, and we have this…
Dress & Sweater: Thrifted, Shoes: Mi Shoes
The shoes are my last indulgence before the self-imposed austerity from our 30-for-30 challenge. My coworkers gave me a very thoughtful gift card to my favorite shoe store, and I’ve been eyeing these every since Modcloth did a post about them. They’re so gorgeous! I’m in love. My sister came to town and we had a really fabulous day poking around in the local antique stores and shoe shopping. I found these and she found beautiful white lacey heels for her wedding reception.
Here's the original version of the dress. PS don't you love my white tights? Oh, right--those are just my legs. My pale, pale legs.
