30 for 30 {Round 2!}

If you missed it last week, I announced that I am on a little shopping fast this month... and perhaps all summer... to break myself of the cycle of consuming... of wasting my time hunting for deals on clothing items I don't really need and then feeling guilty about buying them. Ugh. It's a gross cycle.

To kick off my no-shopping May, I thought I'd do a little 30 for 30 to help me mix up my wardrobe and get creative with the clothes I already own.

So far, so good.

I must say, it's been refreshing to NOT stop at places like Old Navy and TJ Maxx while I'm out running errands, and I had no idea how quick a trip to Target can be when you don't peruse the clothing and accessories sections. Seriously, like 15 minutes. Bam.

So here it is. Week two of 30 for 30. See week one here.

I have a few real camera pics for you and then the rest are straight from the iPhone, because, let's be honest, I don't have time to traipse around my backyard every morning taking pictures of myself. I do, however, have time to stand awkwardly in my bathroom trying to take clear pictures of my lower body on my iPhone, using only one hand to hold the phone. Awesome...

Day 4: Comfy outfit for subbing on a Friday. Cotton dress, cardigan and sandals.

Day 5: Off to a Cinco de Mayo party with church friends and then a Rattler's arena football game... 
You should know that my husband hates wedges, but I bought these shoes {not during May, obvi!} and am now attempting to win him over. I think I am slowly convincing him that some wedges are attractive.

Day 6: Church in my new maxi.

Day 7: Maxi with cardi and watch for teaching.

Day 8: Wild day. I taught in wedges {!} and cigarette pants 
and then had dinner with my best friend's mama.

Day 9: A rare, rainy day in AZ. Put on jeans for Missional Community.

Can I just tell you how thankful I am to be a substitute teacher when it comes to fashion? Since I go to different schools every single day, I can totally wear the same outfit two days in a row and no one knows except y'all!

I'm inspired because I also feel like it's time for shopping fast! Big time. So this is awesome and encouraging and I think I might just do it!
