May 30×30: At-Home Edition
May was approaching and I didn’t even know it. I had no clue that I’d been in quarantine for a month. It felt like two weeks. The beginning of another month wasn’t slated to be anything special—but instead, a continuation of my quiet sanctuary-building in the home amidst the pandemic.
Then I got a message from my friend, Jasmine (@jazzyhwang) of thepleblife.com, asking if I’d like to co-host a second annual #May30x30 challenge! I was simultaneously so excited and apprehensive at the idea of 30 straight days of getting dressed and posting outfits. But what made up my mind was that I was doing it with a friend—we were connecting across the continent and planning our outfits together. In a time of distancing, our outfits would be a fun thing to share.

There are no rules!
Okay, there are a few guidelines. But we’re all at home, and life is unpredictable so consider this my license for you to hop in and out of the challenge as you please <3 No need to post every day, just a way to connect with the people around you if you’d like to hop in.
- Pick 30 items from your wardrobe to wear for 30 days
- Shoes can count if you like! I counted shoes in mine (but if you’re not wearing shoes inside, then forget ‘em!
- Accessories don’t count, so you can include as many as you like
My 30 items
- 5 pairs of pants
- 7 tees/tanks
- 3 dresses/jumpsuits
- 4 button-ups
- 5 sweatshirts/cardigans
- 3 shoes
- 2 ~wildly unexpected~ items
- 1 wildcard I’ll fill mid-challenge 🙂
How did I choose my items?
Jasmine and I planned together! I encourage you to find a friend, video call them and plan out your 30×30! It was so much fun to catch up and learn about where our styles were similar, and where we differed. Jasmine can’t live without sneakers, I can’t live without jeans. We both have the same sweater, dress and jumpsuit. We both love graphic tees and black. Jasmine has amazing chore coats, and I’ve got an affinity for oversized men’s button-ups.
Planning with a friend was just the way to get this rolling. We can match some days, differ on others. Ultimately, this means that our May 30×30 will always have company.
