Summer Style Me Pretty
Day 3 - Khaki Shorts, Stripped T-Shirt, Statement Necklace, Metallic Sandals
I LOVE the outfit (t-shirt - Old Navy, shorts - Gap) on the left. Not shockingly it was too miserable to wear it. I was disappointed. My classroom is normally UBER hot at the end of June so this would have been the perfect outfit. I ended up pairing the stripped top with my boyfriend jeans (American Eagle) and a sweater (Joe Fresh). I don't have any khaki pants, so I thought the tan sweater kept the spirt of the outfit while allowing me to retain some heat in my cool classroom!
On the left is the outfit I wanted to wear (tank - Old Navy, shorts - Gap, fedora - Gap), but the weather here was miserable, so I wore what's on the right (skirt - Gap, jacket - Bootlegger). I'm still unsure what I think about the fedora. I even tried to wear it this weekend at a friends for practice and barely left it on 15 minutes. I think I will enjoy it reading a book on the beach. . . . It might grow on me. The maxi skirt has. I wore it on Day 4 of my own free accord!
Once again, the weather was brutal. I didn't even leave the house in this. I love my yellow tank with this skirt, but since I wore it only a few days before I mixed it up with this green t-shirt (Gap). I just got this new statement necklace and I really like it. Not quite as much as THIS one I see everyone in the challenge wearing, but I still like it! I gave it a try with the denim vest (Gap). I haven't taken the tags on the vest yet. Not convinced of it, yet. As with everything else, I'm sure it's bound to grow on me.
Day 8 (RIGHT) - White T-Shirt, Boyfriend Sweater, Denim Shorts, Runners
This is the best I have for a printed top (RW). Most people in the challenge I see wearing nice tribal ones, but I haven't found one I like. I have seen a few I like on the challenge FB page, so there is hope that I will find one! I am wearing the same boyfriend jeans (American Eagle) in both. I bought them for the spring challenge and really have fallen in love with the cut and length. I am also loving my new Chuck Taylors (I just learned that this is the name for this type of Converse shoe! - Thanks, Britt and Luke). I will have to find some of those socks that you can't see, because these hurt my feet when I wore them barefoot. I wore a bit of a greyish shirt with this outfit, but it may have looked better with a white top in retrospect.
As you can see I skipped a few days and unlike last challenge where I was obsessed with following it to a 't' everyday, this time around I am quite fine going with the flow (which is so not me . . . I'm making progress, people!). Please check out my lovely challenge friends below!
