20 for 80?

Helloooooo dear readers (most of whom, I believe are random pinteresters. But, hey, you're here, and that's what counts, so I'm not complaining)!

Here's the deal: I've been hitchhiking around Europe since May 16th and have therefore been poorly neglecting my blog. As I've gotten into the swing of traveling, however, I've decided to start writing outfit posts again. You have to put clothes on every day either way, right? (If your answer is something different, then a fashion blog probably isn't the best website for you...then again, if it'll teach you to put on clothes, maybe it is.)

I like the challenge of living out of a backpack for a summer without looking like I am living out of a backpack (minus the horrid and unavoidable wrinkles). In a Kendi-esque fashion, I've decided to see how many outfits I can make out of a limited amount of clothing. I've packed the items below (20 articles of clothing in all, 2 belts, 2 pairs of shoes) and I'm aiming to wear a different outfit everyday between now and September 5th, roughly 80 outfits total. Now, I know 20 for 80 doesn't quite have the same ring to it as 30 for 30, but I hope you'll still find the idea just as admirable.

When I return to the States, I will blog about the places I've visited (17 countries in all!) with recommendations for things to do and see. For now though, I'm sticking with the much simpler and less time consuming task of taking photos of my outfits and posting the week's worth on Saturdays (Cassie will continue to post recipes on Fridays and a random post of her choice on Tuesdays).

Wish me luck!
