Day 6, 8, 10 of 30

I win the worst 30 for 30 blogger for sure, especially since I didn't even take pictures of days 7, 9, 11, and 12 . But don't fret! Kevin (my official photog) and I will "pretend" that I didn't miss those days and will make up those pictures tomorrow. I did actually dress for the 30 for 30 (scout's honor!) those missing days, but never had my camera handy. But anyway, here's what I've been wearing for the past few days...

Day 6
(The awkwardness continues...)
I worked at JCP that day so I wanted to be comfy but cute.

("Don't forget to get the shoes in the shot!!!")

The Breakdown:
Cardigan: Loft
Black shirt: Gap
Skirt: Gap
 (I've had this skirt for 3 years and I LOVE it. It's been my staple every summer.)
Shoes: Gap

On Day 7 (Not pictured) my parents, Kevin, and I drove up to St. Louis for the weekend! Kevin and I were in the car for about 6 hours so that explains the lack of picture. 

On Day 8 we woke up really early to get all the sights in. My family doesn't do lazy, relaxing vacations. We wake up at the butt crack of dawn to cram in as much as we can stand so we don't "waste the trip". Sometimes I like it, sometimes I don't. But this vacation it was great because by 1:00 we had already gone up in the St. Louis Arch, had a walk-through tour of Busch Stadium, and ate at Hard Rock. 
Good times, good times :)
The rest of our weekend was filled with 2, count 'em, 2 Cardinal's games and shopping. Oh, and eating. Lots of that. We even went to Cracker Barrel twice! I was extremely happy about that :)

Day 8
See that metal thingy? That's the Arch. 
Yeah, we're cool like that.

And one for the awkward lovers.
 I like to make sure I look ripped when I go on vacation. 

The Breakdown:
Cardigan: Gap (I got it for $10. Serious steal.)
Ruffle shirt: Gap 
Short: Gap
Sandals: Target

On Day 9 we watched the Cards play and headed back, so again, no picture.

On Day 10 we were back to the grindstone. I must say, this is my favorite outfit yet. Wearing black makes me feel professional, but popping it with my reddish-pink cardigan makes me stand out. Love it. 
And this time, I only took awkward pictures. Sorry Mom. 

Day 10

The Breakdown:
Cardigan: Gap
Shirt: Gap
Skirt: Gap
Sandals: Taloni

Pictures for days 7, 9, 11, and 12 are coming today. Or tomorrow. 
Probably tomorrow. 


Day 5 of 30- Creeper.

Day 5

The Breakdown:
Ruffle shirt: J.Crew
Navy cropped pants: Gap
Shoes: Taloni (my aunt's shoe boutique)

If my neighbors didn't think I was weird before, I'm sure they believe it now. 
This was taken on my dinner break. I worked 10.5 hours at JCP today. And I'm pooped. 
I'll probably be folding and greeting in my sleep tonight. 
And I think I've convinced my roommate Jenn to take on the challenge too!! Yay!!!
(Jenn, now you have to. I've announce it to the world now.)


Day 3 and 4 of 30

 I forgot to put yesterday's picture up (oops) so here is 
Day 3
(sorry for the overall paleness and awkwardness that this picture embodies)

I really didn't do much yesterday since it was my day off.
 TV, laundry, and eating was about the extent of it. 

The Breakdown:
Shirt: J.Crew
Shorts: Old Navy
Sandals: Target
Earrings: XXI

Day 4

 Today I worked at JCPenney so I decided to keep it simple, but somewhat dressy.

The Breakdown:
Cardigan: Old Navy
Ruffle shirt: Gap
Skirt: Gap
Shoes: Payless
Earrings: XXI

Tomorrow I'll be working a double so I doubt I'll get a picture on here, but I'll definitely keep them coming, even if they are a day late.


Day 1 and 2 of 30

Day 1

Shopping trip to Little Rock with Kevin

(No, I'm not trying to give you the stink-eye. The sun was in my eyes 
so ignore my awkward squinty expression.)

The Breakdown:
Ruffle shirt: J. Crew
Shorts: Gap
Flats: Gap

Day 2
(Father's Day)

Kevin and I went home Sunday to surprise my dad at church that morning. 
Our whole family got to be together so that was really nice :)
Btw, this jersey dress was great for traveling in the car because I didn't have 
a single wrinkle when I got out of the car. Amazing. 

The Breakdown:
Cardigan: Gap
Dress: Blackbird Boutique (here in Searcy)
Flats: Gap

Final List (revised)

Hooray!!!! I've finally picked all my 30 for 30 pieces!!
But Blogger is being a turd right now (yeah, you heard me right, a turd!) and it's not letting me finish uploading my pictures. So tomorrow (I PROMISE!) I will post Day 1, 2, and 3 plus my pants and shorts.

Day 1 of 30

I did start my 30 for 30 today... but I did not load the picture (fail), and I do not have a post about my first day (another fail) because I haven't 100% nailed down all my items yet (bigger fail). BUT tomorrow night I will have a post of all my items, plus Day 1 and 2 photos. (This weekend was way busier than expected.) I'm really excited about the items I have picked out though because there's some new pieces that I actually haven't worn yet so this is going to fun :)  

Let me know if you're doing the challenge too because I would love to hear from those who are first trying it or are old pros. Any tips would be much appreciated :)

In the mean time, Happy Father's Day, Dad!!!
In honor of this day, I thought I'd share one of my favorite pictures of him. 

And for good measure, here's a "normal" one.
Love you Dad!!


I'm back! I'm back! + 30 for 30

For those of you who check regularly (Mom) I'm sorry for my delayed posting. Working and studying take more time then I thought they would! Plus, I felt like I had nothing cool to right about... until TODAY! I'm taking on the 30 for 30 challenge again!!!!! For those of you who have no clue what I'm talking about, click HERE and Kendi will do the explaining for you. 
So I had planned to start my 30 for 30 with everyone else on Wednesday, but I'm postponing my starting point till Saturday just because I need some extra time planning what my pieces will be. My summer wardrobe is Terrible (with a capitol T) so hopefully this 30 for 30 will help me get more creative with it.
But now I'm off to JCP to fold/hang/help like a man-woman.
