30×30, Week Nine

A Lisa Leonard Giveaway
Help! I’m running out of creativity!

We have one more week of 30×30 and I’m running low on ideas. Thankfully I noticed that I haven’t worn much of this top so I paired it with my last two skirts. 

I wish I would have chosen a dress, and more neutral pieces.

But, we’ll see if I can create four more outfits next week. I hope so. 

This first outfit is light and summery. But it requires a belt. The top is too wide to be worn without one!

And of course. . .my default grey skirt. It simply goes with everything. Literally, I could wear it with just about everything in my closet, and I love that.

Really liking those wedges. Wish they were still available. A good neutral wedge on a budget is hard to find!

i found those shoes at Marshall’s in St. Louis 🙂

I love Lisa’s Pearl by Pearl earrings and the Fine Feather Necklace. So cute!

I love that shirt! The color is great on you. What a great find!


Lisa says · 08.14.12

Both outfits are pretty. The skirt is great; very versatile. The color of the top is striking.

Loooove gray, especially when it’s paired with a bright color like that awesome coral!

I think the top outfit is my favorite of all the outfits you’ve posted so far! It looks so easy but very coordinated at the same time. I love your accessories.

Sparkle & Shine says · 08.14.12

i noticed that you haven’t worn the orange and brown sandals yet (i think they were Bandolino?)
They would be cute to make another outfit with the above clothes, right?

I really love the first outfit, both are SUPER CUTE but I’m a sucker for anything with a belt. 🙂

50 Shade of Liz says · 08.14.12

So cute! I really need to try this. Have you saved a lot of money by not shopping?

You spelled “pieces” wrong! 🙂

LaDonna S says · 08.15.12

So cute!! Love the outfits and your blog!

I loved the pretty like a bow necklace and the anchor bracelet. So cute!

Chelsea says · 08.15.12

I love the simplicity about these outfits. I haven’t quite warmed to the whole belt idea yet, I just don’t feel like it looks right on me. I see all of these outfits on Pinterest where the person finds clever ways to tie the belt, but I just can’t make it work. Any thoughts?

Maria @ All Things Luxurious says · 08.15.12

I love both of these! You look great!

Jill says · 08.15.12

I have LOVED following your 30×30 challenge. I know you say you wish you’d chosen more neutral pieces, but I’ve not found myself bored or feeling like you’re “wearing all the same things.” I think you did a great job with your selections! It’s been quite inspirational actually – I just still don’t know if I can do it!!!

Paige says · 08.15.12

This may be my favorite 30×30 so far. You look so good in orange with your skin tone and blonde hair! The first picture is totally adorable!

Or skinny jeans, turquoise tee, grey sweater, grey wedges with the turquoise j crew necklace??

Amy @ Spin The Meal says · 08.16.12

Love the orange top! What a great shade for August. The nights are getting coolers here in Minnesota, and this orange hue gets me thinking about all the fun fall shades that are just right around the corner.

Brooke says · 08.16.12

Kate- I too really like the orange colored top, just stunning!

Rubiiee says · 08.18.12
