Akira wrap jacket (similar) / Helmut Lang leather shorts (love this and this) / Target tights / Joie ‘New Orleans’ boot / Marc by Marc Jacobs ‘Classic Q Baby Aidan’ bag
Here we go! It’s Day 1 of my 30×40 challenge and you may notice this cartoon-ish arrowhead print wrap jacket was not part of my original 30. I did a last minute switcheroo and decided to remix this number rather than my leather jacket. So no worries, I’m not cheating on my first day
I wanted to keep the first look pretty casual & simple, it was my day off and there’s no need to throw all my best ideas out there at once. I have a feeling this wrap jacket will be making quite a few appearances throughout this challenge, it’s quite versatile, as I’m sure you’ll see. Also, it’s a little hard to tell in the photos, but my tights are actually a deep shade of purple, I thought it added a little more depth to the blacks and neutral tones in the rest of the look. It’s an unexpected color for tights, and I always love the addition of something unexpected.
I know I’m going to regret saying this approximately 5-10 days into this challenge, but it’s slightly refreshing having only 30 items to chose from when getting ready. It can be really daunting having a closet jam packed with clothes, shoes, and various accessories and having to figure out what to do with all of them. So for now, having only 30 is a nice release. And now that I’ve officially jinxed myself, let’s see how I’m feeling about 10 days in.
Have a great Thursday, Happy Valentine’s Day (almost forgot about that, whoops!), and thanks for reading!
