Aaand, here we go again with my picks for this second edition of the 30x30 Remix! As a reminder, only clothing is counting for the 30 pieces, not any shoes, accessories, outerwear, etc. Let's have a looksie, shall we?

You might have noticed that I have a definite color scheme this time around (unlike the last 30x30 where my only real requirement was preservation of life in the 100+ degree Texas summer). I'm sticking with a primarily monochromatic color story of black/gray/white, with a few little pops of oxblood (or maroon/burgundy for you traditionalists), yellow, cobalt, and purple/pink for interest. There's a few different prints for fun.
This month I have a variety of events (like my little brother's college graduation, aw) and travelling (hello Philly, I will be in you in a few weeks!), so maximum remixability is a M.U.S.T. So while my colors might seem a bit boring, I think I can make them work. Especially if I add color with accessories, you know? Let's just say that I'm seeing some colored tights and very snazzy shoes in the near future.
Not many dresses this time around, but several skirts. Nine times out of ten, in my non-remix life, I'll choose a dress instead of a skirt, so I thought it'd be fun to challenge myself with more separates. Hence the lots of shirts and cardigans and blouses and tunics and such. A few pairs of jeans for if the unthinkable happens and it actually gets really cold here in Texas, a pair of leggings for warmer days, and *gasp* a pair of shorts! (Maybe the world really is coming to an end if I'm able to wear shorts in Decemeber? Let's hope not, though. I really want to make 30 outfits and the Earth self-combusting or being invaded by aliens in a few weeks' time would put such a damper on my soon-to-be very fashionable month.)
Anyway, enough blabbing. These are my picks, and I'm sticking to it! Unless of course the aforementioned bummer doomsday sitch happens, then you might see me wrapped up and hiding in one of those silvery tin blankets for the remaining 9 days of the challenge while I run from a zombie apocalypse. Which might not be too shabby, now that I think about it. I hear shiny wearables are very fashionable this time of year. ;)
