30x30 Week 1

I survived the first round of the challenge!! Honestly, I had my outfits planned all week but that is when I didn't have any plans for the weekend. 

Wednesday, I get a call from my mom asking if Anthony and I would like to join her at the Toyota Center on Sunday because her church was throwing this big event so we agree to go. On Thursday, we get an invite to go to the beach on Saturday and we agree to that as well. Boring weekend suddenly full.

The problem is my outfits were perfectly picked out for a Saturday at home and a cute outfit for our church service. Therefore, I had to rethink my entire plan. This may not seem like a big deal but it took such a long time for me to come up with the outfits I already had! 

But hey! That is why I took this challenge. 

So challenge accepted!!

The plan on Saturday was kind of up in the air between the actual beach or going to Pleasure Pier in Galveston. If we did the latter than my outfit would still work but we all pretty much really wanted to go to the beach more than anything.

The beach it was and this is were the struggle got real. I had my swimsuit to wear but none of the clothes I chose really worked as a coverup (at least not to me). A little voice in my head told me I needed to make a teeny tiny exception this one time and go out to buy a coverup or buy new swimming bottoms. Sooo...

I shut that voice down! I will make something work and I did. I just didn't get a picture of me wearing it. 

Boo me!!

UPDATE: This is the outfit I wore.

After the beach, we decided to go to dinner which would be the perfect chance to choose another outfit and actually take a picture.

Let's talk about this outfit for a bit. I had to go with this color shirt because it distracted a bit from my tomato face (go me for not applying sunscreen). However, I wanted the outfit to look a little dressy for dinner without being tooo dressy which is why I added the necklace and sandals. I think the look came together very well.

Sunday was easier to dress for, I knew I wanted to wear my LC shirt because I'm obsessed with it but I needed a way to dress it down so it looks more casual which is why I paired it with my capris and these sandals.

Did you take the challenge? How was your first week? Did you get tempted to buy something like I did?
