This Week’s “Spring Style Me Challenge”

 

Still not food related, but last week I mentioned that I joined the Spring Style Me Challenge through Get Your Pretty On, written by a mom who has an adorable casual chic style that I love, so this is the 2nd of 3 Wednesday posts about the challenge. Out of the past seven days, I followed her dressing guidelines on four of them since dressing for weekend holiday festivities and farm field trips took precedence over the challenge.

So far, my favorite piece that I used for the challenge is the boyfriend jeans! I initially hated them, because it’s been nearly impossible to find a pair that fit, so instead I took a pair of boot cut Lucky Brand Jeans to Forest Tailoring, and the seamstress took in the extra fabric on the sides and shortened the hem. Voila — my own custom boyfriend jeans!l I am sporting them today (Wednesday’s outfit), and I love the fit and feel!

Only 1 1/2 weeks left in the challenge, and I will be crushed when I don’t have someone telling me what to wear every day. It’s been so fun having a daily formula, such as today’s striped tank, boyfriend jeans, bright boyfriend cardigan, and either printed shoes or comfy tennies (perfect for cooking in my son’s class today). Super simple and fun. I already can’t wait until the upcoming Summer Style Me Challenge that doesn’t even exist yet!

My husband actually said to me yesterday, “I like the way you’re putting together your clothes. You don’t look frumpy anymore.” Haha — I have to admit that I agree!

Some of my fellow bloggers from the challenge are posting their outfits and style as well, so be sure to visit them below! And we sure do love comments ❤

The Spring Style Me Challenge @ Get Your Pretty On

I know this isn’t food-related, but I plan to change things up a bit for the next three Wednesdays because I joined a spring fashion challenge that’s hosted by Alison of Get Your Pretty On, a blogger who has a cute casual chic style. She describes herself as  “A mom of three and recovering yoga pants addict.” She had me at “yoga pants,” although I would say I am still highly addicted and not get in the recovery phase just yet. I never really thought about clothing until I started receiving monthly StitchFix boxes, and I learned how to pair my new findings with things that I already own.

So, I entered this Spring Style Me Challenge where I am given a list of 18 items needed for the challenge, and I have ten days to find similar pieces in my closet or go out and buy new things. Then, I am given an outline for an outfit-a-day for three full weeks. Monday’s was super fun, Tuesday’s was way out of my comfort zone, and Wednesday I didn’t have all the pieces yet, but this experience is giving me ideas of what to pair with clothing I already own.

Spring Style Me Challenge: Days 1-3

These are my outfits from this week so far. While they aren’t always my style, they are great for the workplace to help me wear more business casual clothes and less yoga pants and workout gear. (I work for my family, so I take casual to the extreme!)

There’s a fun Facebook group where everyone shows their outfits, and there are also several of us bloggers who are getting together to talk about our weekly outfits each Wednesday. So, check out all of the blogs below to see our take on the outfits we’re wearing each week!
