Eeek! Day One!

30 for 30: Day One!

Well I’m starting off 30 for 30 on a high note, probably because I’m just beginning and still excited about it :)

It had been cold-ish outdoors lately but this week is going to be in the 70s and 80s (though it’s still pretty cool in the mornings and at night). I figure I will make the most of the warm weather and wear as many skirts and dresses as I can fit in before the temperatures drop again. I know I see pictures of people wearing skirts and tights in weather much colder than we normally get in Florida, but when I’m cold, all I want to do is throw on jeans and a sweater (and boots…and a coat…and a scarf–what can I say, we Floridians bundle up for the short periods of time when it’s not hot!).

Anyway. I added some F21 tights and a light vintage coat to the mix. Oh how I love this coat:

I just want to say that I am so excited about this challenge and all the other participants. I’ve started looking through some of the many links and already discovered so many blogs I know I’m going to love! Huge thanks to Kendi for organizing this project.

I’ve decided not to talk to my boyfriend about 30 for 30 much. I talked about fashion way too much this weekend, and I think I’ll try to save up my comments for the blog. He is nice enough to take my picture, I figure I owe it to him not to go overboard :b

So here’s a thought: This outfit (and anytime I wear others like it) make me think of Afeitar. Both the style and the colors. Actually, I think I fairly often notice that my outfits remind me of various bloggers. If I notice it again, I’ll note it. I’m still trying to figure out what the La Vie Toni style is…

30 for 30: Day One!

I am going to spend the day in the library, like I meant to do this weekend. So much for that. Here’s to a productive day!

Bonus shot of my breakfast this morning (I know, I should include a protein). I’ve been eating both applesauce and English muffins a lot lately. The applesauce is unsweetened; I just add cinnamon and it’s delicious! I hope this means my enormous sweet tooth is less powerful than it used to be…I distinctly remember thinking unsweetened applesauce was inedible the last time I tried it.

    Good luck on the challenge! I participated last time and the actual remixing of the clothes wasn’t my biggest challege, it was the taking a picture every day! haha. I love all the pieces you chose and your day one look is just darling. That dress is so beyond cute and I adore that vintage coat.

    Thanks all! I must say Day 2 is less exciting than Day 1 :b

    Also, Melissa – yeah I’m not sure about taking a daily picture. I am awful at taking them myself and if my boyfriend’s not around to do it..well, we’ll see what happens.

    Your dress is adorable. And you look stunning. What fantastic and flattering lighting you have in your place.
    This is my first visit to your blog :)
    Nice to “meet” you!!!
    Leaving the House in THIS?!?!

  12. lavietoni Says:

    Nice to meet you too, Molly! And yes, the lighting is great in some parts of my house…but then we don’t even have a window in our bedroom :)

  13. […] outfit. As usual, it was too warm to add anything like a sweater to really change the dress up from the last time I wore it, but I do think I managed to make it less girly this time […]
