Independence Day Weekend: 30x30 Outfits 18, 19, & 20

 Outfit 18:  Top, Capris, & Belt: J Crew Factory / Shoes: Sperry / Scarf: France / Bracelets: Lucky

Road Warriors are notoriously bad at taking photos at the end of their sojourns. In fact, they kind of sort of need a break from photos by then. So they capture memories in their minds instead, and only snap a few quick shots for a 30x30 challenge. Though I do wish we had photos of all the fun we had with the Husband's family this past weekend. We just love love love our Utah trips and family :)

Above you see Outfit 18, which I wore on Thursday/Friday for the 12 hour drive to Utah. We left Thursday as soon as the Husband got off work. Which was later than we hoped and we were too tired to drive straight through. So we pulled off and slept on the side of the highway somewhere in Nevada for 3 hours to freshen up. And you thought I was exaggerating this whole Road Warrior thing, didn't you?

Next we have Outfit 19, which I wore on Sunday to church and for a trip up the Timpanogos canyon...

Outfit 19:  Top: Buckle / Skirt: J Crew / Shoes: Clarks / Sunnies: NY & Co

...where the Husband dared me into scaling a tree { always up for a good climb, I am }...


...and my mother in law talked me into a Sound of Music-esque spin before heading to play games with family. 


And finally, there's Outfit 20, which I wore Monday, the 4th, saying goodbye to the horses below. We tried to catch a golden chicken too. I thought it would be a nice accessory, but they're a wily bunch and gave a good chase. I also wore this same top with my J Brand cut offs on Friday after we arrived and then again Saturday. That top was was just too convenient over a swimsuit and for camp outs and was also the most patriotic of my 30x30 items. But that was my outfit for biking Lake Como, so you'll see it soon.
Outfit 20:  Button-up: J Crew / Shorts: Old Navy / Shoes: Sperry / Bracelet: Lucky

Now we're going to work our way backwards a bit, all right? Starting with my last outfit from Europe, and working our way back to where I left off at outfit... 4, was it? Not sure. I'm still a bit travel lagged. And I thought I'd be back to blogging when I got home last Tuesday. Poh! What a crazily ambitious little idea that was. Someone didn't check her schedule. Clearly.

Anyhow, I've just changed my mind about that whole backwards nonsense. That's slightly too much disarray for my Type A brain. Instead, I think I'll start back where I left off and work my way up to 17, my return from Europe which I just posted, then continue on with outfit 21. If I post twice a day, perhaps I'll catch up somewhat reasonably. Off I prance to work on it like a good little blogger...


That was way boiteux*, I know...

P.S. We did break out the camera for a quick shot of the Hound in her festive Independence Day wear. We're calling her Tron-Hound, since we didn't have appropriate red, white, and blue glowies for her.  



Tomorrow I'll begin playing catch-up from the Europe trip with Outfits 5 in Carcassone and 6 in Nîmes!
