thursday threads

Recently I've made an effort to 'shop' in my own closet to help avoid the temptation to shop every week. Trust me, if money was no object, this girl would live in your local Anthropologie. Alas, this is not realistic but what is realistic is making the most out of my already vast wardrobe.
I thought about doing 30 for 30 but to be honest... I'm not ready. Only wearing 30 items for the next 30 days is a bit extreme, especially when it's 100 degrees out and I sweat through 8 outfits a day (not really, obviously, but I bet there are people that do. Shit is hot outside).
So instead of 30 for 30... I'm holding myself accountable to my new 'Thursday Threads' post. I'm going to shop in my own closet, create outfits I haven't worn before, and save my money for more important things like a new house, travel, and Moe's nachos.

So here's week one. Notice there aren't 7 outfits. This would be because there's at least one day a week where I don't get out of my pajamas and another day where I can't be bothered to look cute. Just being honest here.

My favorite piece from the week... My necklace from picture one from Francesca's. Super cute, affordable, and different! (I'll work on getting better pictures so you can actually see the details.)
Biggest surprise from the week....My metallic shorts from picture two. I've had those for three years and never worn them. After getting complimented by almost every woman I work with, me thinks I shall be wearing them more often. I know it doesn't look like it from the picture but it's a lot of leg and I thought I looked like a head on legs...kind of like my nephew's interpretation of people (as seen below).

What you need to know... IT'S HOT OUTSIDE. I'm talking heat index of 110. This means I

a)don't dry my hair
b)can't be bothered to do anything with my hair
 c) hate my hair and have decided to cut it.

So there you have it! I'm going to work on the format of this post over the next few weeks but I'm excited at the prospect of keeping this up. Let me know what you think and play along if you're so inspired!

I like the post. I'm going to do something similar but with food. Every meal I cook next week I'm going to photograph and post the recipe. I'll try and do this every other week.
How lucky that you can wear shorts to work!

Your blog is hilarious and very real! I can soo relate to the lazy day when you can't be bothered to look cute. Can I just say that I have a lazy hair day EVERYDAY?! it's sick, but I really can't bring myself to do the works when it comes tomy hair. I do not have the ability to fix it!!!
