In my last OOTD post, I mentioned the #springclosetremix & #marvelousmaystyle challenges happening on Instagram. This month is also a “No Buying Clothes” challenge month. That last challenge is tough for me, but I can honestly say I’ve stuck with it for 9 straight days and that’s quite a feat for me! Maybe I’ll kick this shopping addiction after all these challenges!
Maybe… but not likely.
Here’s out my week looked:
SUNDAY – “May Florals”
Dress – TJ Maxx – $35
This challenge forced me to accept the fact this dress must be consigned
since it is far too big on me now. Sad day.
Shoes – DWS clearance – $20
I’m such a sucker for bows!!!
MONDAY – “Mexican Fiesta”
My mom picked this dress out at Lux Clothing & Accessories on my first contract assignment in Natchitoches, Louisiana!
Sorry, I don’t recall the price!!!
I was never a fan of it, but after this challenge it has a new place in my life!
I love the print!
Though I did have to add leggings and a cardigan to make it work appropriate.
Chasing kids, crawling on floors… not ok in a short dress!
TUESDAY – “Neon Nancy”
Again, this dress came from that same boutique (Lux) in Natchitoches, Louisiana.
I’ve seen in in the French Quarter boutiques for $55
but I KNOW I did not pay anywhere near that amount!
I actually wore this exact outfit to a friends wedding several years ago
and haven’t touched this dress since.
These style challenges are forcing me to reconsider everything I own
and that’s been amazing for me!
WEDNESDAY – “Pinterest Inspired”
Found my inspiration here on Pinterest!
Blazer – Target clearance – $17.48
White tank – Old navy – $5
Green Skinnies – Forever 21 – $12.80
Leather Belt – Target – $22.99
Leopard flats – Target clearance – $7.48
Jewelry – Purple Peridot – $28
THURSDAY – “My Favorite Things”
Sooooo, not work appropriate.
But it is almost summer and I LOVE shorts!
White v-neck – Target clearance – $7
Mint Lace Shorts – Forever 21 – $16
Wedge sandals – Guess via Ross – $30
Necklace – Dillards Clearance – $10
Actually wore this to a concert almost a year ago and haven’t touched it since,
I love these shorts!
FRIDAY – “Silver Linings”
Yeah, yeah. This is NOT an oufit.
But these are my favorite silver pieces that are ALWAYS on rotation.
Top – present from my parents
Chain link – Target – $15
Flower necklace – Target clearance – $9.80
Bling cluster – Dillard’s clearance – $10
Bow earrings – Icing clearance – $2
Round cluster bracelets – Charming Charlie – $15
I like my bling! What can I say?!
Looking forward to next weeks challenges….
