Style Me Challenge

Style Me Challenge! I am really having quite a bit of fun with this. Here are days 3 - 9.

Day 3: Neutral Cardigan, Bright Tank, Statement Necklace, Boyfriend Jeans, Wedges
As you can see I basically did NOTHING on the list. I went to put the bright tank and cardigan on and knew it wouldn't work as I would freeze in my classroom wearing it. The wedges had to go for the same reason. I did find a colourful jersey knit long sleeve (Costco) to replace the tank, but didn't have an other neutral cardigans, so went with a jersey knit cardigan. Also replaced the boyfriend jeans, because they didn't seem dressy enough for work. I went with these grey jeans (American Eagle) and in hindsight, they aren't looking all that dressy either! Boots (Spring) were also a necessity. It was FREEZING here last week and I really wasn't feeling springy at all on Wednesday!

Day 4: Denim Shirt, White Jeans, Neutral Flats, Scarf
I clearly strayed a bit here, but only on the pants (Gap). My white pants weren't clean and since the weather was miserably cold, I went with some red cords. Scarf and jean shirt are also from the Gap and the flats are from Target.

Day 5: White Cardigan, Stripped Tee, Skinny Jeans, Leopard Flats
I didn't leave the house on Friday, so here I am no make-up and hair not done just trying on this outfit! I really liked this one, but I decided when I tried it on together to return this particular cardigan (Old Navy). It is so thin it is see through. Not my style for 2 reasons. The first is obvious. You can see through it! The second is warmth. If I am wearing a cardigan it is for a reason. And it may just be because I am part reptile! The stripped tee is from the Gap, shoes are from Town Shoes and jeans are Buffalo. Necklace I got forever ago and is the only one I own that contains colour (I will be added colour necklaces to my "Keep an Eye Out For" list).

Day 6: Denim Shirt, Bright Tank, Maxi Skirt, Statement Necklace, Sandals
Here is the first day EVER wearing a maxi skirt (Gap) - Well actually, maybe it doesn't even count, because it didn't leave my bedroom in it. Once again, the weather was miserable.  Cold and rainy! I didn't like the denim shirt open, so I listened to some advice on the Facebook group and they suggested a belt. I am a pencil and I don't think the belt does anything for this outfit. Maybe if it was a different colour? Or if I actually had some hips? I don't know. I definitely like it a lot more with the shirt tied. I would have never attempted wearing a shirt tied before this challenge, but I will definitely give it a go now. I may look like a neglectful mother as I snap a selfie while my child screams, but in reality he was screaming because he wanted my cell phone! Boone loves pressing the button to turn the screen on!
Since it was raining I opted to alter the outfit to jeans. I like both of these, but thought I could use one more layer on a cold day. Well, that and Deena suggested I give it a try!
My final outfit was the one with the nude belt. I will thank Deena for her assistance on this. She received all these photos during text and was able to guide me through all these outfits :-) Gotta love a best friend with such great fashion sense!

Day 7: Neutral Cardigan, Button Up, Boyfriend Jeans, Wedges, Statement Necklace

I don't have a neutral cardigan so swapped it for the blue one (Gap). I also wore rubber boots when I left the house, because the weather is MISERABLE here! I'm still undecided on the boyfriend jeans (American Eagle). I love the wash of these, just not sure about the fit. I will continue to wear them and see if they grown on me. I didn't like the statement necklace when I put this together, so I paired a couple of my favourite pieces with it instead. Both have a strong connection to my son, Tripp, and I needed a bit of extra love from him on Easter Sunday. The top picture was taken with my sister-in-law, who is also doing the challenge!

Day 8: Button Down, Skinny Jeans, Leopard Flats
This is one of my favourite outfits this week and it basically came straight from my closet! I was again annoyed at the button down two days in a row, so I rebelled and did my own thing. Sweater (Vero Moda), Leggings with faux leather panel (RW&CO), Scarf (Gap), Tank (Old Navy). Although, it is all black, I feel like the scarf and tank add a bit of spring! 

Day 9: Jean Jacket, Bright Tank, Scarf, White Jeans, Wedges
It was finally nice enough to wear the wedges, but I decided not too, because as I walked around my house in them I noticed my heel slipping out. I won't keep any shoe that isn't comfortable, so these are hitting the road. I did pretty well staying on target with this outfit, but still haven't found the right jean jacket. Scarf (Bay), Tank (Old Navy), Cardigan (Gap), Jeans (Gap). 

I would love to hear your thoughts on the outfits! Do you have a favourite? Mine is the black top and leggings with bright scarf, but since that isn't in the challenge, I think I will go with the red cord and denim shirt!

  1. Oh my goodness! So many great looks on you - seriously, I can't decide which is my favorite. I love the chambray + scarf + red cords, the outfit with the scarf, black pants, leopard flats, and black sweater, and the chambray with the neutral shoes/belt, plus the jade green cardigan. You look fabulous!

  2. I love the outfits that you are coming up with. I also love that you are showing different ways to wear the same outfits. I had never considered a belt with my chambray shirt and now I just may give it a try! My personal favorite are all your fun spring scarves... I think I may be adding some more to my closet soon!

  8. I didn't even think about a belt around the chambray shirt! Such a great idea! And you look awesome with your jeans rolled a tiny bit or with a big cuff. Still loving the rolled sleeves with the boyfriend cardigan. These outfits suit you well!

  10. Jordan, you really have a lot of great looks! I think my favorite one is the red jeans and denim blouse. The color palette just popped on you! Glad you have such a sweet best friend!

  11. OH my gosh, I love that bright blazer on day 13 and 15. Your boyfriend jeans look great on you, agreed with not washing them! haha. The maxi skirt looks great on you and totally appropriate for teach math! Day 16 with the maxi looks great, both ways, but what you ended up with was really pretty too.

What I'm wearing

After my Simons' flop, I recently picked up three pairs of jegging capris at Costco. I think they were about $16 each. I got them in grey (above), teal (also above), and white. I absolutely love them and have been wearing them like crazy. My favorite of the two outfits is the bottom one. The jean jacket is Mavi and I HIGHLY recommend it. In fact, I recently bought another. Exact same style, different wash. This jacket was recommended by both Deena and Christy, so you really can't go wrong. The scarf is one I picked up this spring (Gap). I heart orange and teal. Last week I mentioned trying to define my signature look and that bottom one pretty much encapsulates it. . .
And here it is again. LOVE this one too. Cardigan and scarf are recent purchases along with the grey tee (Old Navy). Jeans are old (American Eagle) and shoes are old (Nine West). I can't wait to recreate this one!
These. Jeans. (Gap). I can't get enough of them. I wore them to professional development o…

Nicknames

All of Hugh's hockey buddies call him "Hammy".

Hugh has been calling Calder "Ham" for a long time. I can't even remember when it started.

Calder started calling Boone "Bean" when he first came home from the hospital. That evolved into "Boone Dog", "The Dog", and just simply, "Dog".  Boone is not a fan of nicknames. Often after we use one of his he will say, "I not Da Dog, I just Boone." Hilarious.

Boone has called Lawson "Dawsie" from about month two. (He called her "baby" for the first two months.) Last week Boone called her Lawson for the first time ever. It took a long time for him to put the "L" on Lawson. He would repeat after us "La La La La, Dawsie". He has said "Lawson" twice since the momentous occasion last week, but I think he got too much attention for using it and has moved back to "Dawsie". "Dawsie" likely isn't going any…

Calder Update

Has Calder ever gotten into sports the last couple of months!?! Below he is at a Rush lacrosse game with Hugh and his buddy Kohen. Calder has been watching baseball, lacrosse, and now the hockey playoffs like crazy. In fact, he has stopped asking to watch any of his "shows". He just wants to watch sports. Oh. . . and add NASCAR to that list. Our boy loves his cars. I don't think that will ever change!

Here is Calder's funniest shark tooth yet. His permanent tooth pushed through in front of his baby tooth!  It was like this for weeks. No gap toothed grin for this boy! Below is the day it fell out!
Calder is doing so well in school. His teacher speaks of what a great student he is. Hearing her say these things actually makes me wish he used a few more manners and a bit more kindness at home! LOL. But, if he is going to be on his best behavior somewhere, I want it to be when we aren't around. Although it was great to hear about Calder's learning successes at pa…
