surviving 30x30 on vacation and days 6-10 of #jjdailystylechallenge

it's been several months since i've done a 30x30 clothing challenge. every time i do people think i'm crazy. before i did it the first time, i thought it was pretty crazy too. i have a heckuva lotta clothes. how on earth was i supposed to limit myself to 30 pieces for one whole month? well, it was a lot easier than i thought it would be. since it's thursday, let's have a little throwback to the first time i did 30x30-may 2013 (the time i spent 1/2 the month in the virgin islands). people think a fashion challenge on vacation is a terrible idea, and i completely disagree. it makes packing so much easier.
if you're considering a 30x30 fashion challenge while on vacation, i have one simple tip for you...
pick 29 pieces and make piece #30 a swimsuit/cover up. i counted all swim suits and cover ups as 1 item. it was perfect. there were several days on the trip that my outfit for the day was a swim suit and cover up.
linking up with justjacq for today's pool/beach looks for triple threat
since we're talking about fashion, i've got my next set of outfits from #jjdailystylechallenge

day 6...animal print (i guess i forgot to take a camera pic that day)
scarf-gift|nordstrom cardi|target v neck|kohls skinnies|gap outlet shoes

day 7-statement jewelry
walmart bella bird cardi|banana republic top|walmart bella bird skirt|gap outlet shoes|blooms & co necklace

day 8-colorful shoes (these are my fave and they're about to break)
nordstrom cardi|old navy v|gap outlet skinnies|target shoes

day 9-pink (i seriously washed and styled my hair and got dressed just for the pic. i went to the pool after)
old navy top and shorts|target wedges

day 10-maxi dress/skirt (i have a couple of maxi dresses and a few skirts, but i wasn't in love with any of them this day)
nordstrom cardi|target dress|new york&co shoes

the first few weeks of the challenge were pretty easy. the prompts are getting a little trickier for me. come back next week for a funny story that ended in a gingham shirt.

have you done a fashion challenge? it's not too late to jump on this one.
