5 of 30: Brace Face

Well, it's not exactly my face that has the brace...more my left wrist/arm. So attractive, n'est-ce pas? I have acute tendinitis in my elbow (think glorified tennis elbow for someone who doesn't play tennis). And I have the beginnings of carpal tunnel in my wrist--and today I decided to just leave the braces on in my photos...might as well see what I really did wear today!!!

What is the worst injury you have ever had? Do you still feel the repercussions?

4 of 30: Well, I'll Be Dashed...and Striped

Today was quite the day! One of those one where you dash about frantically from the time you wake up until you crash in bed at night. I've dashed from class to work to meetings to homework, threw in a frozen dinner, and now I'm taking a couple minutes to post a quick one. But as you can see from the pics, I was not only "dashed" today--I also opted for being "striped" :)

But both the dashing and the striping today were all done in the most delightful of weather...I can't believe it's almost 70 in November!!! I can't decide if I'm excited to be without a coat...or sad because it's too warm to snow...

What do you think?

3 of 30: Painted Rock

Ironically, when I was planning today's outfit, I instantly thought of subtitling this post with something about painted rocks...just because the colours of this skirt have always reminded me of the Badlands or the Arizona desert.

And then...Drayton and I came on campus this morning for school...and the giant ROCK at the entrance had been painted for our engagement!!!!!! Ah!!!!!!! So the title works out perfectly in ways I had never planned :D

Ah, double entendre.

2 of 30: Covered in Car Oil

Sorry for the craziness of my hair in these pictures...not gonna lie, I was tempted to skip posting today because I look GHASTLY :P I got out of the car and Fiance Drayton Wesley took these pics in the 3 mins we had before our church tour appointment (oh wedding planning). But hey, we all have those moments, right?

On a positive note, after the running around of the day, it was LOVELY to tour the church. Pretty little chapel that's just the right size...and great pricing :) Only downside was the DREADFUL bright robin's egg blue walls in the room they use for receptions. Oh dear. Oh dear. But beggars can't be choosers of cream walls and dark woodwork, can they?

Then of course there was the moment of the night where Drayton's car wouldn't start...and we checked the oil with his cell phone light in the dark...and walked to a gas station to buy a refill...and then filled the car with oil in the dark...I am quite the little grease monkey now!!! And that's literal!!!

Til tomorrow,

1 of 30: Fiance Included

So I decided to start off my 30 for 30 with an outfit combination that I wouldn't normally put together...that way the "different" ones won't all end up at the end!

BLOOPER. Fiance decided to take a picture of me to make me look silly :P

The beautiful fiance...who also wore a floral button-down today!

I think I'm really going to like this challenge...I can see where I might get a little tired of wearing the same shirts and sweaters over and over...but it's giving me a burst of new creativity and feels refreshing to have my closet cleaned up :)
