So, one of the fashion bloggers I follow had a Fall Style Challenge for the month of October. Her name is Molly. Here is the link to her website so you can follow her too!
Anyway…I have been in a fashion slump for awhile now. I think a lot of it has to do with the fact that I don’t work anymore, so I have no reason to dress up and put makeup on this old face!
I thought participating in this instagram challenge would give me the boost I needed to get dressed every day. Molly gave all of us a prompt for each day of the month and then we would upload a picture of our interpretation with the hashtag #sbmfallstylechallenge.
Day 1. Plaid
This look also satisfies days 3, 6 and 25, but that is not the point. The scarf was thrifted for $1.99 and is 100% cashmere made in Scotland.
Day 2. Lace
I don’t own any lace except for this Soma lace camisole bra that is peeking through my thrifted dress. I think it’s Ann Taylor or maybe Talbot’s…I can’t remember. This look would also work for days 9, 10 and 17.
Day 3. Colored Denim
See, I’m already getting lazy…
Day 4. Cardigan
I have TONS of cardigans. This could also satisfy day 23.
Day 5. Denim on Denim
Isn’t this a great pic of Miss Oreo!
Day 6. Scarves
Yes, I might have a tad too many scarves…but they really do make an outfit. I have since taken a bunch of these to Kouture Konsignment where they sold out pretty quickly.
Day 7. Floral
I told you I had a ton of cardigans! I also have a wrinkly neck…someone get me a scarf, QUICK!!!!
Day 8. Corduroy
Yes, this is the picture I posted. There MIGHT be a pair of corduroy pants in there, I’m not really sure. Since then, I have thrifted a Gap corduroy jacket.
Day 9. Bold Prints
This $8.25 Liz Claiborne dress was what I wore on my most recent television appearance on The Morning Brew with Larry Ahrens. If you click on my ‘Media’ page you can see all my tv gigs. This look also satisfies Day 10.
This is where I fall off the wagon and don’t post again until
Day 18. Print Mixing
I can print mix with the best of them, I was just being lazy and let my cardigan do all the work for me! hahaha
Well, that’s all she wrote. The rest of the challenge was an epic fail! :-(
