I have never been one to back down from a challenge. I jumped from our backyard tree fort on a dare when I was five. In my youth, I cut down the Christmas tree every year, even though I knew it would take my small hands forever. I ran several races with no training (and paid for it in pain for days!) I went to law school 1300 miles away from home. Tell me it can't be done and I'll do it.
But now, there is a new challenge. Recently, I got into a debate with a friend over whether or not a truly preppy outfit of substantial quality could be purchased secondhand. Ever the eco-friendly advocate, I took this on as a project. As I do with all projects, I made a plan. I recruited my 17 year old brother to be the willing model for the outfits I hope to assemble. Then, I searched for inspiration. I came across a slideshow on The New York Times website that inspires me. I'm going for "updated classic casual".
I'm going for something like this:
So stay posted! The challenge officially begins next week, but I was so excited that I just had to share with you!!!
