21 Day Challenge Day 1 – RemixPosted: August 16, 2011
First I need to get this out of the way – Yes, I am wearing my glasses. This is not normal and not by choice. I have been wearing contacts since I was in high school. I know it’s bad for you, but I have slept in them almost every night since I started to wear them. Of course, there were the weeks I would go without them to “give my eyes a break,” but that was my choice. Well, Monday morning I woke up only being able to see out of one eye. It seems I lost a contact while I was sleeping. I searched everywhere for it, but couldn’t find it. In all of my contact-wearing years, I have never had a contact fall out of my eye while I was sleeping – and of course it would happen the day the challenge began. Now I have to wear my glasses for the next couple of weeks. Anyway, on with the challenge.
All of these pictures were taken by me with my iPhone, so they’re not the best. Maybe one day my photographer sister will come take my picture.
For the first day of the challenge, we were to pick an item we could remix at least 3 times over the course of this challenge. Since I had to go to work that day, I had to wear something I was able to wear to work that could look good while I was not at work, as well. I chose this top I bought a couple of years ago. I have worn it with other things many times before and like the way it looks when it’s not with the basic black pants I’m required to wear to work. I also layered it with a purple tank top underneath. I’m kind of iffy about the bow on the side – sometimes I like it. Other times, it makes me feel as if it puts way too much emphasis on my hips.
For accessories, I have my big heart ring – no other reason than I love it. It’s my favorite ring, so you may see it several more times during this challenge. I also wore light blue stud earrings to match the blue in my top.
The shoes I picked are some of my favorites. I have worn them so many times because they’re adorable. They’re professional looking, but playful at the same time. So cute.
