30 for 30 Challenge Recap: Week 1

Pin It
I made it through the first week of the 30x30 challenge! It was a lot tougher than I thought it would be. For the first few days, I struggled with accessorizing and putting outfits together. For instance, I grabbed a top then realized it wasn’t in my 30x30 pile. Opps! To make it easier on me, I decided to lay out my clothes the night before. It turned out better toward the end of the week. Here is the recap of my weekly outfits:

What I am wearing:
Day 1: H&M skirt (buy similar here), Hollister chambray shirt (buy similar here)
Day 2: LOFT skirt (buy similar here), J.Crew camp pocket cardigan (buy here)
Day 3: Apart seychelle day dress (buy here), Amrita Singh necklace in evergreen (buy here), F21 belt (buy here)
Day 4: Bebe linen pant (buy similar here), H&M blouse (buy similar here)
Day 5: BR sheath dress (buy similar here), AT pump (buy similar here)
Day 7: F21 linen short (buy here), Ann Taylor silk blouse (buy similar here), Target sandals (buy here)

The weather was aweful last week. On top of that, taking pictures at 7:00 in the morning was certainly a challenge. Since I wore the exact same dress and shoes, I thought I'd reuse one of my previous photos for outfit # 5. It was raining cats and dogs on Saturday. I decided to stay home, clean up the house and get things ready for little one's birthday this week. I was quite happy to stay in my pj's all day. Thus, there was no outfit photo for day 6. Unless you want to see me in my pj's :)  It was hard to only have this many items to work with so please bare with me. I look forward to remixing those same items next week.

Have a great week,



Love all your outfits from this past week! Day 4 is my favorite -- great color choices and so chic! I have similar pieces so I may copy if I run out of outfit ideas towards the end ;)


Six totally different beautiful looks. Love them all.


Love the dress on Day 3!


Great job thus far! I admire anyone who is participating in this challenge, I don't think I could do it! I especially love the shorts in your day 7 outfit!


Yay! I love outfit recaps!! You did a great job for your first weeks mix, can't wait to see the rest.


I think you did a great job. It gets easier. :) After doing the winter challenge, I actually thought it was a lot easier to have a shorter field of vision to my closet. Because when I was finally able to use all the items in my closet, I had to scratch my head and wonder (like so many times before) what in the world am I going to wear?!?

I love the Day 7 outfit. :)


Wow, Sydney! I'm impressed. How did pull off that many stylish (drool) outfits with 30x30? Great job! I would never be able to participate, because I'm just not that organized. :) Have fun for the rest of the 30x30.


Aww, happy birthday to your little one!! How old is she?

Loving your recap - especially Day 2 and Day 7! The cardigan's color is so gorgeous with your skin!


@SewPetiteGal Thank you so much. She just turned 6. Going to first grade this school year :)


lovely outfits sydney! i love outfits #1 and #3. dress #3 is really pretty and compliments your tan skin well.


I don't know which one is my most favorite because I like them all. You did great.

I know I won't be able to complete this challenge because I lack creativity and effort in remixing and planning.

purses and puppies

i think you did awesome, actually! i had such a hard time, and kind of still am. i dont know how i'll make it to 30 days! i just love day 2 :)


I love this challenge, and love to see all of the pictures! #3 is my favorite - that dress is gorgeous!

Great recaps! You're doing well so far :)


Great outfits! I've been having trouble taking photos everyday, so the ones that I do end up taking count for the 30 for 30, the rest...I just consider it as extras. lol. Can't wait to see what you come up with next! =)

You're doing such a great job with this! I love all of your outfits, but that blue dress has got to be my fave <3


I love the outfit recap! Hope you continue to do this for the remaining few weeks : ) It really gives us an idea of how you dress for everyday wear. My fave is the first - simple but I love the chambray with the camel.


You have such a classic look! I love the blue dress and necklace!


@PetiteAsianGirl Yes, I will continue with this challenge :) I am sure you'll see a lot more of the chambray and camel combination in the remaining 3 weeks.

Really Petite

You are doing an amazing job Sydney! I don't know how you do it! :)


Beautiful first week of outfits! I still need to get my outfits 6-9 up tonight. I love 3 and 4. That maxi dress is also beyond stunning. As another shortie, I agree that they are near impossible to find for petites!


you're doing so well with the challenge!! i'm so glad that the blue F21 shorts made it into the mix as it'll give me lots of ideas on how to wear it. day 7 is definitely my fave. :)

cute & little

That Seychelle day dress is amazing! I think if I owned it, I would never want to wear anything else :)
