That's a Wrap!

Happy! Happy! Joy! Joy!  I finished the 30x30 challenge on Friday! Hooray for different clothes!  Later this week I will recap all 30 outfits, the overall experience and lessons learned but for now here are outfits 26-30.

Day 26: Monday, Brand Loyalist.  This outfit is brought to you by Ann Taylor Loft; not really, but I'm pretty sure a portion of my salary keeps the store afloat.  Speaking of floating, I wore this after a perfect day hanging out on the cold, clear waters off Cape Cod.  It was such a perfect weekend at home, I'm Cape-sick already.

Top/Shorts - Ann Taylor Loft, Shoes - Nordstrom (Seychelles)



Day 27:  Tuesday, The Blues.  This oufit is indicative of emotional dressing; does anyone else do that?  I was feeling pretty blue about traveling back to D.C. and its sauna-like weather so I put on my bluest items.  While more dressy than my typical airline attire, I tend to err (no pun intended) on the side of caution and overdress for travel. Sloppily dressed travelers (ex: sweatpants and Uggs) are a huge pet peeve of mine.
Cardigan - Ann Taylor Loft, Tank - Old Navy, Skirt - Banana Republic, Shoes - Nordstrom (Sofft), Necklace - Gift 



Day 28:  Wednesday, Ruffles Aplenty.  I completely forgot about this skirt after wearing it during week 1, so sad!  I knew I needed something bright to power me through my Monday so I paired these pieces together and added a bright scarf and bangles to complete the look and put some pep in my step.

Shirt - XXI, Skirt - Marshall's, Shoes - Nordstrom (Seychelles), Scarf - Permanently borrowed from Mom,  Bangles - Target



Day 29: Thursday,  Flower Power.  Back in the day I said this was going to be a tough skirt for me to remix because I have very set ways I wear this skirt and I showed you my favorite way already.  I cheated a little here by wearing a non-remix hot pink shirt under this shear number since my white tank was in the wash.  I hope you can forgive me!

Shirt - Marshalls, layering shirt - Old Navy, Skirt - Marimekko for Anthropologie, Shoes - Nordstrom (Sofft)


Day 30:  Friday, Beach Bum.  I would love to have ended the challenge with a bang or at least a punch of color but these shorts and tank were clean so I opened the dryer and poof, instant outfit.  I added some gold accessories and my leopard print belt to spice it up, meow!
Tank - Old Navy, Shorts - XXI, Shoes - Nordstrom (Sofft), Belt - Betsy Johnson, Necklace - Ann Taylor Loft, Bracelets/Earrings- Filene's Basement, Watch - Borrowed from Husband


And that's all folks! Tune in this week for a summer book review, mac and cheese recipe and the 30x30 recap!

Hey Cara! Thanks so much for the nice comment on my blog. Congrats on finishing your 30 for 30. I completely understand spending all your money at the Loft. But at least their clothes hold up well and come in cute colors. I'm a crafter (dabbler?) too. :)

Yippee for being done- your last outfits are beautiful and you have the best accessories! We don't have Ann Loft where I live (and my wallet thanks me!)
