This summer, I’m taking the Get Your Pretty On Summer Style Challenge.
So far, I’m loving this challenge and can’t believe how much it’s encouraging me to get dressed in a cute outfit every day, try some new outfit pairings, and just enjoy putting together looks. Plus, I LOVE the Facebook Group where women share their own variation of each day’s outfit.
I thought it would be fun to share a round-up of my outfits from this past week in hopes that it might inspire you with ideas and or encourage you to take a little time to mix and match items you already have to create some cute outfits!
(Want to see more outfits? See last week’s What I Wore post.)
Here’s what I wore this past week:
I wore a dress for the third time in two weeks!!! I think that dresses are growing on me, thanks to this GYPO Style Challenge and your encouragement on my daily outfit of the day posts.
I really, really like this dress. It’s not practical for every day wear, but it was perfect for Sunday morning!
Okay, a big thing I’ve discovered from taking pictures every day of my outfits is that I have a bad habit of pairing dressy tops with casual bottoms. And I don’t like how it looks.
But I didn’t realize this until I started taking pictures of my outfits! Which is one of the many reasons this has been such a good experiment for me to do!
I think I really like this outfit, too! It was supposed to be a blue and white striped shirt for the GYPO Style Challenge, but I don’t have one, so I subbed this tee.
And I got crazy brave and wore YELLOW shoes, as per the encouragement of Alison who put together the GYPO Style Challenge! I don’t even know when the last time is that I’ve worn yellow!!! And I shocked myself by actually liking them!
You all told me I needed to get some white shorts, so I finally got some! See? I’m learning… slowly but surely!
The outfit for this day was supposed to be a grey shirt + bright colored shorts. I was going to be inside most of the day and it was rainy for half the day, so here was my version of the day’s outfit.
I thought it looked okay hanging in my closet, but once I saw this picture I was like, “Really?? That’s not how I thought it looked at all!!” And I decided that this wins my Worst Outfit of the Week award. Facebook agreed with that. 😉
Sometimes, you just need to laugh when you put together an outfit that you and Facebook realize is just a bad, bad choice.
Also, in case you haven’t noticed, I’ve learned that I wear blue a LOT. I need to expand my wardrobe colors. 🙂
