So I've decided to participate in the 30 with 30 Challenge that the Small Things Blog and From My Grey Desk are hosting
The idea is to use 30 items from your wardrobe and mix them up to make 30 outfits. This includes jewelry, shoes, tops, and bottoms. I love clothes and I've toyed with doing outfit posts on here before, but I could never get it together. I also LOVE mixing up the things in my closet to make unexpected outfits. I thought this challenge would be a good way to motivate me to start outfits on my blog as well as an opportunity to get creative with my wardrobe.
Today was their week 2, but I just started, so I'm sure you could, too! Just go for a week or two after they do on your own blog.
So let's get on with the outfits. I'm visiting Matt's family in Bluffton, South Carolina near Hilton Head so I had to make due with what I brought which meant no belts. That's right. This girl who LOVES belts forgot ALL of mine at home. Tragedy. Don't worry. I'll work a belt or two into my next outfits. :)
Outfit #1: Neon Herringbone Dress, Pendant Necklace, Gold Chain Flats
I snagged this dress at Target the second I saw it. Love the neon and subtle herringbone design. These gold flats are my favorite because (they're gold, duh) and they have chain on them!! This pendant necklace is also one of my very favorite pieces. It was on sale at the JCrew outlet and I knew it needed to be mine. Love this outfit for anything. Add a cardigan and it's perfect for work. Add a jean jacket or blazer and it's perfect for evening. Wear it as is for ever day! Easy summer dresses (and cardigans) are my staple.

Outfit #2: Blue Floral Tank, Short Sleeve Cardigan, Yellow Cuffed Shorts, Gold Chain Flats,
Love love this colorful summer outfit. Those yellow shorts are my favorite. Love this outfit for running around doing errands or to lunch with friends during the summer.

Yep. I tucked that dress into a skirt and added a cardigan. Tucking a dress into a new bottom is one of my favorite tricks to get more bang for your buck with my wardrobe. This would be an outfit I'd wear to work for sure.
