August 30x30

Kelly is back at it with another 30x30 challenge and since I had so much fun with the ladies who did this challenge in May, I've decided to participate again.  It kind of just made sense since all of my belongings are packed up and on a boat somewhere in the Pacific, I only have what I can carry in a couple suitcases to choose from.  I didn't really plan this out, just sort of tossed some clothes that I like into a pile and that's what I have until I see our stuff on in San Diego.  Had I thought this through a little more, I would have made some different choices but I didn't so all of my pieces this month came from that pile.  Unfortunately I have quite a few duplicate pieces from the challenge in May but they're some of my favorite items of clothing.  Some of the ladies who are doing this challenge have chosen not to shop for the whole month but since I will have access to American shops for the first time in over a year, I will not be joining them in that part of the challenge!  I also chose not to include shoes or jackets in my 30 items.

6 shorts, 3 skirts, 2 jeans, 10 tops, 2 t-shirts, 5 dresses






If you do the math, that's 28, not 30.  I know I'm going to be doing some shopping once I return to the states so I left a little bit of room.  I realize I'm repeating the same mistake I made last time and including quite a few dresses but a majority of the pile I had to choose from was dresses.  I'm working on compiling all the possible outfits from this collection so it will hopefully be easier to get dressed each morning, especially while we're on the road.

Woohoo!  Here we go ladies!

I was thinking you're brave to be doing this in the middle of moving, but I guess limiting yourself to 30 pieces is actually smart while traveling! I only have 27 pieces so I'm going to call the remaining 3 spots swing hitters when I feel I need to throw something else in!

I struggled to pick 30 pieces since we are moving, most of my stuff is packed away and I just had a baby so Im in size limbo!! Excited to start this challenge with everyone! This is my first one and I cant wait to get started! I have a few dressed too! Its hot in Florida so they are always my go to outfits!

i have a lot of repeats from may too. it's basically the same hot season here so i'm stuck wearing the same pieces.
