Five Looks in Five Days

Today, I wanted to share five looks that I put together for a 5×5 Summer Challenge. Before I get started, are we friends on Instagram? I keep saying that’s where most of the fun takes place.

Don’t believe me? Go take a peek for yourself; it’s ThirtyMinusOne_Blog.

So you’re wondering what is a 5×5 Summer Challenge. It’s when you choose 5 pieces from your wardrobe, and you mix and match these to create five unique looks. No worries, the items don’t have to be new. Many of the items in my look below are ones that I had worn before – keep scrolling to see details.

Once you got your clothing items, you can select accessories (like jewelry, shoes, bags, and belts) to add in and out of your 5 piece wardrobe, these will accent each loo. Then you’d wear each, take a photo and share one per day over five days. When sharing on Insta, make sure to use #5x5summerchallenge and #summer5x5 for your looks to be added to the collection and that we can follow along.

Here are my five looks

Day 1 – Mom Uniform; super comfortable and often worn on outing with the littles 😉 This look includes chucks, chino shorts, chambray top and accessories.

Day 2 – I wore the same chino shorts, but this time added a pink peplum top, metallic sandals and my favorite neutral bag.

Day 3 – I am all about comfy-chic looks, so I turned to my favorite T-shirt dress, chucks and added a chambray shirt around my waist for a fun touch.


Day 4 – I found this chambray dress over the summer and love it. So I paired it with sandals, blue studded handbag and some fun accessories.

Day 5 – On my last look, I wore the T-shirt dress again, this time dressing it up a bit with wedges, a chunky necklace and neutral handbag. This dress was my favorite to create looks with, as it could be easily dressed up or down. 🙂
