The MOTHER of all WIWW-30 days: 17-30

It's been a few weeks of crazy, but now it's time to get back to business.
June 13th I started a little journey with hundreds of other bloggers-
30 days+30 articles of clothing=30 outfits
This was my first attempt at the challenge.
It took 37 days, a few pretty much repeat outfits, 2 replacement pieces, and a whole lot of patience, but I did it.
Are you ready for the mother of all What I Wore Wednesday posts?
 The last 14 days of 30 for 30 and an extra outfit just for fun.
As usual, I'm linking up with Lindsey and Nina.

17-Wednesday, June 29th-Drop the kids at school, then home to keep sewing for Sew Funky Market
Did I mention I managed to get 2 full weeks away from the preschool to focus on my first market?!
Navy stripe top, jeans-J Crew Outlet, Green wedge shoes-Athens, GA boutique

 pearl costume necklace-World Market- gift 
18-Thursday, June 30th-Dropped Big Sister at Summer day camp, home to play with Little Sister and have a Disney Princess movie marathon while sewing.
Coral shirt-J Crew outlet-gift, Denim cut offs-American Eagle, Belt-Forever 21, Camel shoes-old from Bakers, necklace-NY and Co
Little Sister wore her Belle dress up with Mommy's heels when we got home-and Pippy Longstocking piggies today.
19-July 4th-Lazy day, watching the kids in the inflatable pool and sandbox-more stitching, then a fireworks box the size of Little Sister in the backyard at sun down (never leave Breadwinner in charge of fireworks purchase again!)
Red sandals-NY and Co, Red bracelet-hmmm-old
White boatneck-Target
Blue denim cutoff-American Eagle (PS these are still Breadwinner's all time favorite shorts-yeah!-he still loves me)
Little Gussy ruffles to add to the 'All American' look!
20-July 5th-Dropped the kids at school, snapped a few shots of our playground construction, then home to sew some more-no makeup today. Eek!
Green dress-Aeropostale, Denim crops-American Eagle, Khaki sweater (TOO warm for THIS today)-NY and Co, same red sandals
21-July 6th-Playground equipment arrived at the Preschool today. Everyone teased me about being dressed inappropriately to be climbing around a construction site. Pish-Posh- they don't know me very well. ;)
Brown tank-JC Penny, White skirt-Old Navy, Bloom Belt-The Pleated Poppy
same green wedges, necklace and bracelet-NY and Co
22-July 8th-Happy 6 year anniversary! We basically postponed. Did nothing. Breadwinner went to work, I helped chaperone the Preschool Summer Camp cherry picking field trip! Both girls loved eating cherries right off the tree and spitting the pits on the ground-ha! This is really the only picture of me all day-helping Little Sister across the monkey bars.
same stripe slouchy tee, same dark denim cut offs
23-July 9th- SEW FUNKY MARKET day! EEEEeek! How did I manage to take a million pictures all day and not get ANY with my new friends, Christina, Katie, and Kristen?! Better yet- this is LITERALLY the only photo of me all day- Thank goodness for Lee.f and their amazing photobooth!
Full Sew Funky recap coming
White tee-hmmm...just realized this is really not a 30 for 30 outfit. Since I only REALLY wore 29 pieces (it was too hot for some of my sweater/jacket/heavy shirt picks), we'll call this tee a substitution. Brown belt-Forever 21, same jeans, favorite gray apron tucked to wear as a halfie (to hold my change)-Anthropologie, gray rosette necklace-Allorahandmade

25-Tuesday, July 12-Back to the old routine- Preschool projects. Today we ripped out some old cabinets (yes- we moved them- yes, I wore this all day...cuz that's how I roll. tee hee)
Long maxi skirt worn as a dress-Forever 21, Brown crops-NY and Co, same stretchy brown Forever 21 belt, same khaki sweater, Natural Life necklace-gift from my Real Life best friend, Shop Gal
26-Wednesday, June 13-Mommy's Day off- home to catch up on laundry and clean.

New Rainbow Frame in the shop!
Fabulous plum shell necklace- gift from my friend Angie

Same Aeropostale green dress, same dark denim American Eagle cut offs (uncuffed), same strechy belt from church, Olive scarf-Natural Life- gift from Shop Gal, Red shell bracelet-Beach boutique in Melbourne, FL- same red sandals (which died yesterday- so, so, so sad)
Extra-I took a tiny 30 for 30 break and remembered to photograph! Day of Preschool projects and 1st day of VBS!

Braid to match my daughters who went to a Rapunzel party yesterday and had braids and flowers in their hair.

Whoop whoop!! You did it :-0 Good job lady. I totally failed :/ I've been losing weight & my bottoms are too big & 1/2 my stuff was too hot for the sudden change in weather. Lame!! We need to chat soon - I wanna hear all about the market. I see your mom is coming tomorrow - how long is she in town? When is a good time for you?
