glasses
Do you guys know who The Girls With Glasses are?
If you don’t you need to check them out. They’re hilarious and adorable!
Here’s a little story for ya…
A couple months ago they hosted a contest to win some scarves. They did a youtube video and to enter you left a comment. So I did just that.
And they picked me!!!
Free scarves!!! I love them!

Here’s the comment I left:
Ooooo Scarves! I missed the win-a-pair-of-glasses-by-commenting contest. My husband recently sat on my pair and broke them clean in half…. the day after he wrecked his car. Poor fellow. But we still have our 1983 Toyota! Runs like a tank! A scarf would help me hold my brains in while looking at all the broken things around here and make me look sophisticated while sporting my super-glued/masking taped glasses. Keep it “glassy” ladies! (get it? classy….glassy. No? Oh, well I tried.)
True sad story. And that wrecked car of my adorable husband’s? Well it turned into this dress…
cardress
And that’s how the car dress came to be. More dresses can bee seen here.
I bet you guys had no idea I wear glasses huh? I’m actually wearing my crippled pair as I type.
I’ve been on the prowl for a new pair and am really leaning towards these…

They’re from spexclub.com. And they’re an awesome price.
Maybe I’ll be rockin’ a new pair soon.

Mason and I went on a date to the fair.
Good fair food. A butterfly exhibit.
Sea lions {watch out Sea World. Boise is comin’ to getcha}
Runaway goats eating unwatched backpacks.
People watching {’cause all the crazies go to the fair}
And a trip to the top of the world.
Perfect date.

There they are. All 30 outfits.
In each outfit I’m wearing something I either made or refashioned.
Lessons learned:
1. I have always had a hard time wearing things that I made. Not entirely sure why. But this challenge broke me of that. Happy day.
2. I will never remix in the summer never ever ever never ever again. Why? Who wants to wear clothes in the summer? Not me. And I was busy playing all summer, camping and exploring this lovely state of Idaho. Now when the fall remix comes around….Different story. I will be all over that. I loooove fall! Sweaters, scarves, layering. Sigh.
3. I need new summer shoes.
Thanks for all the encouraging comments along the way!!!
They really kept me going. You guys rock!
So what was your favorite outfit?
Did you guys do the summer 30 for 30 challenge? What did you think? What did you learn?

Outfit #30 is in the bag! Who cares that it took me allllll summer to complete.
And guess what else…I get to check off another goal on my 30 by 30 list. Number 15 to be exact. Score!
And what did I tell you would happen yesterday?
Dance party….

I’ll be back tomorrow with a recap of all my outfits and share with you what I learned.
I’ll tell you one thing I learned yesterday:
I make ridiculous faces when I dance.
