Style Challenge: Day Three

Today’s look: The Finale to this week’s style challenge…ITS FRIDAY. It’s time to let your hair down and have a fun night out on the town!

Add ons: Forever 21 Sequin Sleeved Blazer (Still available online!), Steve Madden Heels.

This was the funnest part of the style challenge. Finding an outfit that is perfect for a night out is easy, but to find one that stands out is the tough/fun part. This jacket does it all for me. And for only under $40, you can’t pass up on a deal like this. You can throw it together with jeans, a v-neck tee, and flats or with a simple solid skater dress like this one from ASOS.

I bet now you’re thinking of creating your own style challenge with your closet. I’d love to see what you come up with!

Hope you have a great Easter weekend! XOXO

Style Challenge: Day Two

Today’s look: Semi-Casual.

Same basics, different style.

Add ons: Michael Kors Purse, Karen Walker Sunglasses, Forever 21 B/W Trench, Christian Siriano for Payless Wedges (on Sale!), Michael Kors Watch, Varied Bracelets.

I just bought this trench from Forever 21 the other day, and I must say I’m in lurrrrrve. It’s very light and versatile. In sunny weather you can throw it over a patterned dress like this one from Wallis or go crazy and wear it solo as a dress tied at the waist with a belt. Or of course, you can always wear it “normally” on a gloomy day like today. Meh. Rainy weather, there’s something about you. I love you when I can stay in bed watching movies all day. But not when I have to head to class to finish projects early in the AM.

Who’s with me on this love/hate relationship? I’m sure I have a few takers.

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!
