Style Challenge: Day One

Every now and then I challenge my wardrobe basics to create a few different looks. This week, I wanted to put together a casual, semi-casual, and an “I’m ready for a fun night out” look using the same basic pieces. It’s always cool to see how much you can maximize what you’ve got in your closet without having to go out and buy a whole new outfit. (I guess that’s the frugalista in me.)

Today’s look: Casual

Basics: Black Tee – Express & Coral Pants – H&M (similar in Seafoam)
Add ons: Old Navy Flats, Michael Kors Bag c/o the boyfriend, Karen Walker Sunnies, Michael Kors Watch, Varied bracelets, H&M gold hair tie.

This was such a fun project for Janelle (my photog and great friend) & I….Mainly because we got to spend some time at the county fair before it ended over the weekend. We couldn’t let it pass by without grabbing some Dippin’ Dots ice cream and take in all the different smells from the elephant ears and funnel cakes…mmmmm. YUM. Stay tuned for what’s next in the challenge.


p.s. Thanks Scar for helping out too!

top: H&M (similar). pants: Forever 21 (similar). sweater: Forever 21 via Shop The Closet. purse: Michael Kors. watch: Nixon. necklaces: Spike the Punch, Monogram – gifted by my best friend (similar style here). sunglasses: Karen Walker (loving this color too!).

Gossip Girl is back on today and I’m extremely ecstatic. Yes, it’s one of my favorite shows. Sometimes, I secretly wish I was a NYC Socialite parading the town in my fancy shmancy heels and outfits that cost a fortune. But instead I live vicariously through the lives of Manhattan’s elite in the comfort of my friends house drinking wine, sharing funny stories, and catching up…all while wearing this.

Funky Florals

blouse: H&M (similar here & here). pants: H&M (similar). shoes: Zara. purse: Michael Kors. glasses: House of Harlow.

There’s nothing like that feeling of wearing a brand new outfit. I did a bit of a shopping spree this past week. (You can’t blame me though.) The nearest H&M to me is almost 2 hours away, so when I decide to make the drive… I make it worthwhile. Hence the fact that you have been seeing more of it in my daily wardrobe.

I’m so in love with this floral print blouse. The versatility of it gives me the opportunity to throw it on with some jeans and heels like these or even with a pair of pants like the ones I have on in this outfit. I subtly snuck in the snake pattern and it fit together so perfectly. Maybe it’s because the shoes are just that amazing. It’s always fun to mix your patterns as long as you don’t go too crazy. Speaking of shoes!…. I’ve got a present for you: 40% Off All Shoes at House of Harlow! Use Coupon Code: 40OFF at Checkout!
