30 for 30 challenge!

So today I decided I was going to do the 30 for 30 challenge! What's 30 for 30 you ask? Well it is this awesome idea where you pick 30 items of clothing and mix and match them for 30 days. I always feel like I need new clothing, and I think this challenge will really help me mix and match more, and fall in love with some of my old favorites that I've considered giving away. Here is a great explanation!

I thought that July was a perfect month to do. I am traveling to my hometown of Northern Virginia for 3 weeks (hopefully 4!) to visit family and friends, and I'll also be traveling to my future home, Savannah, Georgia, so as I packed I thought... instead of cramming dozens of shirts and dresses and such, why not just pack 30 items? Not only will it downsize my suitcase weight (which was VERY heavy this morning before I decided to do this challenge) but it will also allow me to really think about my wardrobe, and show myself that I don't need new clothing.

I'm varying it slightly, some people include shoes into their 30 picks, but I consider them an accessory. Also, it's summertime and I will be doing lot's of walking, so I'll mostly be wearing flip flops.

Also, I'm adding one wildcard! An extra item not listed. I only had 29 things, and I'm not packing anything else, so it might never be used!

Here is a list of all my picks:
I wanted to pick items that I loved, were comfy, as well as a few items from my closet I never wear. I wanted to give my not so favorite pieces new life with my favorite ones!

Here is day one!
(The pictures aren't the best, It was getting dark outside so I decided to take them inside. And it was last minute!) Look at darling Phoebe, wanting to be in the photoshoot :) She always has to be in pictures!

Oh! Recognize the Sperry's? They're the pink ones I was talking about!

So.. here I go! Challenge has been accepted, and I'm excited! I encourage all of you to do it! Are any of you also doing this challenge? If so, let me know, I would love to see your outfits too!


  1. Super cute! Good luck on the challenge and I'm loving the Sperry's...Phoebe wants to vogue in front of the camera :p

  2. Very cute outfit :) Loving your picks for the 30 for 30! I'm excited to see what you come up with next:)

    Thanks for stopping by my blog

  3. Nice lineup for your 30x30! Might have to take a leaf out of your book and not include shoes next time...its been a pain, haha!

    To answer your question (from the comment on my blog), I went to OU, so the Figleaf I visited all the time was in Athens, Ohio. Great shop, isn't it?

  4. These are fabulous picks! I love your first outfit. That top is so gorgeous!



I absolutely love each and every comment :)
