1. Yes, today’s post title is a reference to Breaking Bad. I just finished the final season (after speeding through 5 seasons on Netflix in just under 2 weeks) and thought it was only right to dedicate today’s monochromatic look to Walt & Jesse.
2. You are probably thinking to yourself, “Hey, those boots and and jeans are NOT part of your 30 x 30 items”. Well, you would be correct. After careful consideration, and only 2 days, I’ve decided to put a hault to the Style Remix Challenge. While I loved the idea of styling 30 items for 30 outfits in 30 days, it’s just not realistic for me. I haven’t even made it a week and I already feel too constricted! I love my clothes – heck, I’ve spent years curating the Fashionably Lo collection – and it’s just not fair to keep them in a closet all alone for 30 days. So, while I am slightly ashamed to be quitting so early on (maybe I should have made “commit to things” one of my resolutions), I am looking forward to more choices in my closet and will continue on with the no-shopping rule. #dontjudge
Anyways, back to today’s outfit. If it makes you feel any better, I am still wearing one of my 30 items!! For a casual work day, I decided to pair this heather gray knit with a pair of charcoal jeans and taupe boots. I love neutral looks and because leopard is a neutral (thanks, Jenna Lyons!), it only seemed right to throw on my favorite coat, right?
