Well the second week of 30×30 has come and gone and it wasn’t too bad. I definitely gave myself a ton of options by not including shoes and accessories in the 30. I didn’t really struggle this week for outfits, but I did find myself wanting to wear non-30 pieces. The only way I did struggle was the normal way: I didn’t want to wake up and wasn’t inspired to get dressed even though I had outfits planned. A few of the days I didn’t wear a planned outfit because either the weather wasn’t what I expected or I just felt so blah I didn’t want to put anything on and that’s just not acceptable.
Just like I said in my edited Week 1 reveal, these pictures were all taken on the same day so my hair is exactly the same. I’m trying to get better at taking the pictures in the morning so that you can have a real time picture. As always though, follow me on Instagram and you’ll see the dailies.
Welp, here goes nothing!
Day 7 and 8 were not my best days. I like day 7 because it isn’t something I would normally go for. Please excuse the baggy pants; these were taken after having worn the pants and before washing them. Ewwwww. Anyway, I didn’t plan the tank top to match the pants when I picked out my 30 pieces but it does and that was a fun surprise. I think I’d like this outfit better if I had better shoes on. I love these shoes but it was too much brown and earth tones for me. Day 8 was just so comfy. Like wearing pj’s. You all know I love my fancy pj’s. The problem though is that it just looks sloppy. This sweater either needs to be with something tight, high heels, or a dress for a layering look. Paired with these black pants I just felt too blah. I think I might try layering a color under the sweater. I tried to punch up the look with some fun chartreuse printed flats from Old Navy many moons ago. (seriously, they are probably at least 5+ years old).
Day 9 and 10. Day 9 is a go to outfit for me. I wear it a lot on dates lol. I just think the top is flattering without trying too hard. I never paired it with this pink necklace before but I was feeling the punch of pink so I went for it. Day 10 is my blah day. It was Friday, I woke up crazy late, and I did not feel like wearing the dress I planned. So I grabbed the grey T I had planned for the weekend, threw on some blue flats and called it a day. I just was not happy all day at work. After two weeks of trying, I was disappointed in myself for giving in to such an easy outfit.
Day 11 and 12. I feel so pretty here. The day 11 outfit I planned to wear to watch my Mom’s salsa performance ummmm but I didn’t. Lol. And then I forgot I didn’t when I was taking these photos. But I’m still going to post it because I love this dress. And then there’s day 12. You might recognize this number from the first week. When I was taking photos, this was the last thing I had on and I decided I liked it and wanted to try dressing it down for Mother’s Day so I added a brown belt and my gold loafers and was so happy with it. I went to the mall, the grocery store, and cooked a gourmet meal in this outfit. I felt very 1950’s housewife. Especially because I had an apron on while cooking. No one took a picture: family fail. I was glad I dressed up to run errands. I felt so put together and fun. The only downside? It was soooo windy and I had a few Marilyn Monroe moments. But I had my bloomers on (I HATE the feeling of my leg skin touching my leg skin so I always wear shorts under my dresses) so no one saw anything but a really flattering look.
My favorite BY FAR is day 12. I’m so happy I tried dressing down this dress because I LOVE the dress and was so afraid I wouldn’t wear it a lot.
Which one is your favorite? Any other suggestions to dress down my favorite dress?
This week I want to try layering more with my dresses to create a new look. Any suggestions? This is something I really struggle with!
P.S. Please ignore the really sexy bruises. I bruise so easily and I have no idea how I get them half the time.
P.P.S. I really need to start going outside for the photos because the color is off in some areas. My hair is NOT that dark. It’s kind of a medium brown/red color right now.
