So I affectionately dubbed this weekend Independence Weekend, which was just a way for me to try and keep my eye on the prize during all the moving and heavy lifting I did this weekend so that I would stay positive. Not quite sure it worked 100% of the time, especially after I spent 12 of about 32 hours in a car, followed by about 8 hours of hauling all my possessions down stairs and loading them onto a U-Haul and then up the stairs and into the apartment, capped by an evening of unpacking and arranging. Thankfully I had the help of my incredible family and friends which made it a thousand times better. And now that we are about 90% settled in and living in a space that really looks like home, I can say that it was all worth it. Needless to say, my weekend outfits were nothing special given that they needed to be moving-day friendly (aka comfortable). But, I did stick to my 30 for 30 clothing items the whole time. I basically wore a version of Friday's outfit again on Saturday (gross I know) though, so I am now a day behind on the challenge and of course I am way behind on posting photos. I'll catch up though!

|I have a feeling you are going to get way sick of this plaid shirt before the 30 days are up, particularly on weekends. It has kind of become my go to comfy-yet-still-fashionable weekend top. See further proof here.|
As I mentioned before, Saturday (otherwise known as day 5) I looked remarkably similar to the above photos. Basically sub out the red top peeking out, button up the rest of those shirt buttons and swap out the ever chic Steve Madden boots for the ever hideous rain boots (oh yes, did I mention that my moving day involved constant rain? What fun.) and you have my Saturday look. Definitely not blog worthy. So I am skipping Saturday and making Sunday my day 5 instead. Don't worry, I can do that.

|I have never really given in to the whole crop sweater look, so I almost always pair this loose sweater with a fun, feminine under layer (a la this lacy tank) to give it a little something extra and make it more me-appropriate.|
