30 Outfits 30 Days Challenge | Day 1 – 6 Recap

30 Outfits in 30 Days Fall Edition - Day 1-6 at Cup of Tea

View the other 30 Outfits 30 Days Challenge Posts | KickOff 

First 6 days are done for the 30 Outfits in 30 Days Challenge!  If you’re not sure what’s up, you can read more here.  But, long story short: I chose 30 items from my closet, and challenged myself to make 30 unique outfits for the next 30 days!

Here are my thoughts from this week’s outfits.

*FYI – I’m just now seeing that I put the pictures in the collage in the wrong order! So let’s just roll with it 🙂

Most Worn Item | This turned out to be my ponte pants from J Crew Factory! These are the most comfy pants ever!

Favorite Outfit | I LOVE Day 4. It was a good combo, and I loved those shoes with the pants. I wore that outfit on a busy party day, and got many compliments (that instantly puts outfits in the “must rewear” cateogry). But, if I’m honest, pretty much every outfit this week was great.

Least Favorite Outfit | Can I say none? I liked them all!

This Week’s Surprise | Day 1’s outfit! I decided that on Day 1, I would just do something COMPLETELY new to me. The shirt was new, and I initially thought the shirt and pants wouldn’t go together. But I really liked it together.

Hardest Thing About This Week | Nothing to do with the clothes themselves, but this week was just super busy because we’re in full party mode for Elizabeth’s First birthday on Saturday. So it was just hard to get pictures taken each day.

Also, so glad I decided not to narrow down my shoes and purses to include them in the 30 items. It’s been fun to try to incorporate them. But, I’m regretting a smidge that I included my 3 jackets in the 30 items. Let’s face it, I spend most of my time inside… anyway, it’s called a “challenge” for a reason 🙂

So let’s recap each outfit! (oh hey, Katie’s bedroom! New picture location! Which, funny enough, means my tripod is set up in the room. So if you have NO idea what’s going on, you just walk by the room, see a tripod set up facing the bed… weird)

Autumn Wish List


Autumn WishList

I’m just so giddy that we’re entering my favorite season!! If it wasn’t so hot here in NC right now (and if I didn’t want to look ridiculous), you’d already see me in scarves and boots. And a Pumpkin Spice Latte in my hand. (Can you believe they’re back already??)

I have my eye on a few things that will make Autumn be fabulous in the style department. When we move into the colder months, I tend to gravitate towards blacks, greys, and smokey purples. And this season it’s no exception.

Polka Dot Top | If it has polka dots or stripes, I’m hooked.  Cute little collar? Even better! (I avoided opening up the Fall Boden catalogue for weeks! I just want everything in there!)

Quilted Riding Boots | I would love a pair of two-toned riding boots, because there is so much versatility with them. I still regret not snagging these during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.  I love the quilted pattern! And Cole Hann is my favorite “quality vs. quantity” shoe brand. Their shoes are so comfortable and last for a long time!

Pretty Scarf | I have a million scarves already, but I should snag another one 🙂

Eye Shadow Pallet | I love pretty neutrals when it comes to eye shadows. When autumn arrives, my color choices swing from shimmery bronzes to purpley greys. This pallet would be perfect!

Clutch | While a clutch isn’t exactly the most functional bag in the world (can you fit diapers and wipes in one??), I like having pretty small clutches to stash my “mom gear” in to keep it all together in my diaper bag. That way I don’t accidentally smear Butt Paste all over my hands!

Quilted Vest | Every season, I see one.  I want one.  I just never purchase one. Maybe this will be the year?

Are you craving anything this Fall? Tell me all about it!
