Style Me Challenge

I fell off the Style Challenge wagon these last few days. Partly because I didn't have white jeans clean and it was too cold for the maxi, but also because I basically didn't leave my pjs on the weekend (save my evening outing on Saturday, which I documented below). Don't get me wrong. I LOVED the challenge and will definitely be doing it again in the summer, but daily selfies do get a bit exhausting!

Day 17 - Denim Shirt, Stripped Tee, White Jeans, Sandals
I was white jeaned out on this day, so went with my black skinnies. I love this blazer (Vero Modo) and Tee (Vero Modo). Also loving the messy tuck! I normally wear this blazer and shoes with the same grey striped tee and grey jeans. When I find something that I like and that looks good, I go with it! This challenge has helped me step out of my box. And although a black stripped tee and black jeans might not seem like a big leap - it is for me! Ha!

Day 18 - White Tee, Cardigan, Boyfriend Jeans, Scarf, Sandals
This scarf (the Bay) really screams sunshine and lollipops. I wouldn't normally wear something so bright and colorful, so I thank Alison and the Style Challenge for that! The sweater (Gap), flats (Target), tee, (Gap) and jeans (American Eagle) are all things I have worn before in the challenge. I will also thank Alison for introducing me to a colored cardigan - and especially a boyfriend one (longer in length).

Day 19 - White Tee, White Jeans, Statement Necklace Sandals
White on white. Scary. Remember my jeans are tinted a bit blue, so for me it wasn't quite white on white! I needed the cardigan (Costco). My classroom is FREEZING these days. I wore the messy tuck to school, but I actually found I liked the shirt (Vero Modo) untucked when I took the pictures after work.


Because I only did one of the Style Challenge days, I thought I would add the outfit I wore to a comedy night on Saturday. We saw Kelly Taylor. You need to catch his act if you get the chance! I needed a sweater (Vero Modo - the Bay), because Saskatchewan has not gotten the memo and subsequently spring has not started. I went with a pop of color with the tank (Old Navy), because I wanted to wear my black and white shoes (Nine West). The jeans (American Eagle) are becoming my new favs. They are a bit acid wash looking and have a very high rise.

I will definitely be keeping everyone in the loop for the start of the Summer Style Challenge. I have loved it and would enjoy getting more of my friends, family, and readers involved.  Blogging about the outfits has been great, but I think the best part has been the Facebook group. It has been amazing to see so many different women wearing all of Alison's creations in so many different ways.

Make sure you check out my fellow bloggers' last posts on the style challenge, as well. And leave them some comments! We love hearing back from people who enjoy our posts.


Happy Wednesday!

  1. Wow you did awesome with the white on white prompt. I didn't get dressed at all this weekend so I followed up with day 20 and 21 on Monday/Tuesday. I agree - I loved the challenge but ran out of a steam for the daily pictures and all by the end of it. A little break will be perfect before summer!

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…
