Final WIW of 30x30: Out with a Bang or Fizzle?

For July 8-18. I tried to make new combinations from my 30 items, but the only thing nMew is that my fussy feet needed a third pair of flats. The black/white D'Orsays were added for 2 days.
July8: (1) EF bone white pants and EF navy silk shell, white flats and sun hat.
July 9: (2-4). A Sunday outfit of 2 black dresses, one over the other. I tried to lighten 3 to show them but the black on black is difficult. 4 is the plain EF dress without the other dress as topper.
July 10: (6-7). Wide Gap cropped jeans with EF striped linen top tucked in front. Web belt, tassel earrings, white athletic Cole Haan flats.
July 11: (8-9). Black EF pants rolled, Citron silk jacket buttoned to be a blouse, black ankle strap flats.
July 12: (10-11). White Target tee, navy EF pants, athletic white shoes.
July 13: (12) wide Gap jeans, this time with EF long sleeved striped linen tee over plain white layering tank, black ankle strap flats.
July 14: (13-14) EF linen striped tank and skirt with new necklace (14), white flats
July 15: (15) not a good photo. This time the EF navy pants were paired with a silky print blouse, white athletic flats.
July 16: (16-17). EF black dress with white jean jacket, sun hat, black and white flats
July 17: (18-20) wide Gap jeans now with EF navy silk top and knotted small scarf in cream and navy (20), white athletic flats.
July 18: (21-22). EF bone white pants with EF black asymmetrical top, black and white flats.

    Well done Joy!  I'll be copying outfits #1,5,and 18, thank you very much!    You are really rocking those wide-legged white crops.

    Thank you , Emily. I am enjoying playing with them.

    I say out with a bang, no fizzle here.
    You look great in both high and low contrast looks Joy, and anything that includes white is just stunning.  These provide me with inspiration for our upcoming summer.

    Jazzy! I've started to like repeating outfits. It's satisfying, like pancakes every Saturday.

    You've achieved so much variety here, Joy.  I particularly like the white and black/navy outfits - so elegant on you.

    Hi Joy!!!!!  Congratulations on the successful completion of the challenge.  As I mentioned many times in the past you have long been one of my style icons on YLF.  And then you went and surpassed yourself during the challenge.  One word:  WOW.  

    With a mere subset of your closet, you consistently dressed with an indescribable elegance.  You are renown for making Eileen Fisher look better than the stock photos.  

    You taught me two things in life:  (1) buy an apron; and (2) buy Eileen Fisher.  In that very order too.

    Sterling, you are the best! I am humbled that I taught such a stylish lady anything!

    I'm completely inspired. I love seeing how your EF pieces are such workhorses. I also think it impressive that your style clearly came through even with limited pieces to work with.

    Bang! Great set of outfits here Joy. I think 17 and 18 are my faves.
