30x30 fashion challenge {week 3}

So the blog everyday challenge and the 30x30 challenge on overlapping days was driving me nuts!  Instead of double posting, I'm going to use my 30x30 update in place of the prompt given by Jenni.  I think this will be a win-win for everyone.

So for week 3 I decided that I needed to swap out a pair of shorts for the teal jeans in my original list of 30 and also I received a dress in the mail that I'd been waiting on for some time (one of the joys of living on the other side of the world) so I swapped that out for the teal polka dot dress.  Since I hadn't yet worn either of those items, I felt less guilty about it.  With the temps rising quickly here (and more importantly, the humidity) I just needed cooler options!

You'll see in the photos that I stole some tips from Kelly and her adorable toddler for this week!

Day 14
These are the shorts I swapped out for the teal jeans.  This was the perfect outfit for chasing a 5 year old around half the day.

Day 15

The dress I swapped made an appearance the next day.

With the sweater, it became one of my favorites of the week!

Day 16
I struggled with day 16 for no reason other than I wanted to wear something that isn't a part of my 30 so therefore I hated everything I put on that morning.   I'm happy with the final product but it was a challenge for sure.

Day 17
I have a slight obsession with this blue/teal & pink/coral color combination in case you can't tell!

 Day 18
I attended a roller derby event and the team's colors are purple and yellow so I cheated and wore a yellow sweater but only for the 1st half of the day!

I also learned another VERY USEFUL trick from the fabulous Kelly.  Once she pointed it out, I don't know why I didn't think of it sooner, like while I was taking a word processing/power point class last semester.  Wanna know what I'm talking about, I'll give you a hint but you should check out her page.  She explained everything flawlessly!

I love the teal dress you got. It looks great with that sweater and belt. Good job! I was originally regretting having 3 pairs of shorts in my remix, but now that it's warmer I'm so glad I did it!
