20x30 Summer Remix Challenge: The Pieces


I've decided to challenge myself this summer. My friend, Caitlin from Greater Than Rubies, hosts these 20 pieces for 30 days challenges.  I've actually participated in her fall and winter challenges also.  Although it would get a little frustrating at times - being limited to only 20 pieces of clothing for a whole month -  it was nice to not feel overwhelmed by everything in my closet when choosing an outfit.  I'm really looking forward to the simplicity this challenge brings to my life. It also reminds me how blessed I am and helps me to be a better steward of all the things God has given me.

The challenge begins tomorrow and we're all linking up our 20 pieces today.  Here are mine!  Drum roll please...


Ta-da!  It's my first time blogging like this so I'm kinda excited about how my photos turned out!  (Thank you, iPhone and PicStitch!)  Here's the list:

Bottoms -
  • white denim capris - via Plato's Closet
  • coral corduroy jeans - Old Navy
  • denim jeggings - Levi's via Plato's Closet
  • denim Bermuda shorts - Banana Republic hand-me-down
  • black shorts - Old Navy
  • striped knit skirt - via Saver's
Tops -
  • olive V-neck tee - Mossimo for Target
  • navy V-neck tee - Joe Fresh for JC Penney
  • white tee - Gap
  • gray striped tee - Old Navy
  • radiant orchid tank top - Kohl's
  • polka dot tank top - Kohl's
  • cream pleated tank top - Jessica Simpson via Dillard's
Completer Pieces -
  • coral cardigan - Kohl's
  • olive military vest - JC Penney
  • denim jacket - Gap (old)
  • black/white paisley kimono - Charlotte Russe
Dresses -
  • black maxi dress - Loft Outlet
  • black t-shirt dress - Mossimo for Target
  • multicolored floral dress - Cinnamon Girl (old)
Anyone else interested in joining me?  I think one of the things I love about this challenge is the accountability, community, and encouragement I receive from Caitlin and the ladies involved.  It really is a life-changing experience.  Stay tuned for some remixing action!

    1. Thanks Amy! The purple tank top was on clearance for like $3.40. In the mail I get $10 in free Kohl's cash so I basically got the top for free.

    1. Thanks Becky! You have some good picks too! I realized I went with a lot of neutrals so I'm going to have to pull out some colored accessories. You chose some cute colored pieces! I love what you've posted on Instagram so far!

    1. Hi Brynn! It was like 90% off at Kohl's and since it was "radiant orchid" I picked it up!
