If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I have been participating in Hilary's challenge called Style me April. I first saw it when Jana shared this...
Be generous with your likes and your words of affirmation".
I am not the most comfortable posting pictures of my self every day for all to see. This challenge has not only helped me renew my wardrobe but has given me a new sense of self confidence. Everyone has been so kind and I have been so inspired by other women. Each "like" and comment brings a smile to my face.
I have debated a few times whether or not to gear by blog towards fashion and always end up telling myself I am not stylish enough. But now I can see that I do have my own unique style and people are responding to it. Don't worry I won't be doing that....I love posting about design and my new home too much! However, there is a strong correlation between interior design and fashion design.
So without further adieu, here are my outfits so far! (sorry if you've already seen this on IG)
Day 1: Skirting around town. Easy peasy, except it wasn't quite warm enough to wear a skirt. Oh well!
Day 2: Neutral and a Pop of Color. Well Gabby and I had just gotten pedicures the weekend before and I chose a hot pink shade from Essie so I knew pink had to be my pop of color.
Day 3: Oh Hello Sailor. This was my first challenge. I have lots of stripes but nothing I thought would be appropriate work wear. So what did I do? ---throw a navy cardigan over it. And I even dusted off my red high heels.
Day 4: Day to Night. I got a little lazy on this one. Now I think I should have worn a dress and maybe a blazer over it?? I do love the outfit but I think the night version could have been better.
Day 5: April Showers. There were no showers in sight so I dressed to match the sunshine. Yellow, polka dot denim and flip flops were the definition for me.
Day 6: Always Nabs a Compliment. Uh...I don't know. I get a lot of compliments on my clothes but not on one specific thing. Most people point out the J.Crew stuff and then I get to tell them I got it for next to nothing from the clearance store (NOT the outlets) and sample sales!!
Day 7: Pretty in Pastels. I LOVE pastels and they are very trendy this year. I could have put a LOT of outfits together for this one but I decided to pair mint and pink together!
Day 8: Jungle Tribal Tropics. When I saw this one at first, I laughed so hard but it actually turned out to be pretty easy. However, I can imagine that you could go a little overboard!! All leopard, everything :)
Day 9: Pump up the Volume. A voluminous skirt plus I also intensified the texture and color!!
