30 x 30 Day 29 & 30: The End

Life: So, I had another semi-embarrassing moment yesterday in court. A judge asked me in a condescending tone "Are you a lawyer??" - NO I'm just standing here in a suit, at the podium, calling the client's name because I'm a random person off the street?? I just don't even understand who he thought I could be? Whatever haha! 
Also, I'm currently in the process of transferring ALL my files to my new computer that I got for Christmas. Yes, I realize it's February 2 and I haven't done this yet, but I haven't had time! Case in point - according to my computer monitor, the files should be done transferring in 20 hours 14 minutes - "Ain't nobody got time for that!" I needed an uninterrupted weekend to do this, and this is the first one I've had since Christmas (ahem, it's also the first weekend boyfriend will be gone - he moved to Chicago yesterday)
Clothes: We have reached the end of my first ever 30x30! I've got 2 outfits to close up the month. First up is a more casual work outfit. I almost paired the blue sweater with my cobalt blouse, but in the end went with pink instead to try to bring some spring into this winter 30x30. Although I had my tweed jacket with me at the office, it was just WAY too hot to even put it on for pictures. 
Blazer: Ann Taylor (similar)
Shirt: J. Crew
Sweater: Gap (similar)
Shoes: Corso Como (similar)
Necklace: Forever 21 (1, 2)
Bag: B. Makowsky
I also got a bit more creative than usual and used my black suit dress as a skirt. I used a thicker belt to cover up the fact that my shirt isn't actually tucked into anything, but is instead just rolled up. I'm sure a ton of people already know this trick, but I learned how to do it from Elle and Jean. All I did was gather my shirt in the back, and cover any lumps and bumps with the belt. The only problem was that this somehow made my dress shorter than usual. This is about as short as I'd go for a work outfit. 
Blazer: Theory
Dress worn as a skirt: BCBG (similar)
Blouse: Old Navy
Shoes: Ann Taylor
Necklace: Tiffany
I'm excited to be done with the challenge, but I certainly had fun doing it. I'm going to post a recap tomorrow along with a reflection about what I learned.


  1. Haha, wow. "Are you a lawyer?".

    "Omg, no! This isn't the DMV? I just need to get my drivers permit. I turned 15 today you know!"

    I have a friend who's a lawyer, and she's not petite but she's very pretty and she encounters a lot of flack for it in the world of law as well. Bummer! You don't have to be old and ugly to be smart! Haha.

    And I like the trick with the top and the dress! Very smart. I might have to try that out soon!

  2. I love these outfits! I totally would have known you are a lawyer! My very first hearing, the judge lets me speak then asks me "is this your first hearing?" I could have died lol

  3. I love the pink and blue combo with the blouse and sweater in the first photo. So pretty!

  5. I think I may have to try the 30x30 challenge. What a great way to be creative with what's in the closet. I love your outfit. That cornflower blue sweater is just so lovely. Looking good!
