Spring Style Challenge Week 2

by - April 22, 2015

The Spring Challenge is in full swing and I'm having extra fun this go around.  I attribute that to a couple things: having friends already that I met during the challenge a year ago and having all the pieces already in my closet, which just makes it a matter of being creative.

Here's the summary of what I wore this past week:

Wednesday: Cardigan + Black Tank + Printed Scarf + White Jeans + Hoop Earrings + Wedges

I got a silly flat tire on Wednesday and had to change all my plans that day, including what I had planned to wear.  Then by the end of the day after I sorted it all out, I was ready to start feeling cute.  
Outfit details:
Scarf: H&M (old) I like this one
Jacket: Modcloth (here)
Shirt: Joe Fresh (old) Similar
Jeans: Kut for Cloth (Nordstrom)

Thursday: Chambray + White Tank + Dark Wash Jeans + Hoop Earrings + Bright Flats

This outfit made me feel young and fun and happy.  Not too sure if it was the mix of my favourite colours or getting to wear my Britney tee.....

Denim vest: Target (old) I just ordered this one because Christy couldn't stop talking about denim vests
Britney Tee: Because I love her. Don't judge.
Jeans: Jessica Simpson (The Bay)
Flats: Vince Camuto "Ellen"...comfiest shoes ever!
Purse: Kate Spade
Smile: Fake- I was grouchy taking pictures.

Friday: Bright Jacket + Printed Top + Dark Washed Jeans + Hoop Earrings + Wedges

Perfect outfit for hanging with me madre who is also doing the challenge!  I had fun with makeup this day and tested out a new coral lipgloss.
Jacket: Soia &Kyo
Tee: Joe Fresh
Jeans: Mossimo @ Target....which I hemmed myself!!!!! I feel so grown up
Shoes: Converse, old

Saturday: Cardigan + Gray Tee + White Jeans + Long Necklace + Sandals

It was a two outfit day.  One for roughing around the house and another for a night out celebrating my birthday!  My going out outfit was inspired from my 3 outfits à la Deena posts here.  I felt awesome in that outfit, so glad I got it!

Plaid Shirt: Old Navy, old
Gray Shirt: Forever 21, old
Jeans: Gap, old
Flats: Blowfish, old
old old old...just like me.

Sunday:   Chambray + White Tank + Printed Skirt + Stud Earrings + Bright Flats

Sunday was my birthday and I felt like wearing pallazzos....so I did.  It was also my nephew, Jamison's baptism.

Monday: Cardigan + Gray Tee + Printed Scarf + Dark Wash Jeans + Bright Flats

Kimono: Tonic.  If I was buying one now, I'd get this one.

Tuesday: Cardigan + Black Tee or Tank + Long Necklace + Coloured Denim + Sandals

This outfit made me smile all day !

Cardigan: Aritzia
Shirt:  Joe Fresh
Necklace: Local designer, Elizabeth Lyn
Pants: old, Beyond the Rack

My favourite outfit of these....I think I would pick my go out ensemble from Saturday night, simply because I'm not usually comfortable in dressy outfits and I think I could have worn this all night.

  2. I can't seem to choose a favorite this week because of course I live them all! There is something about the plaid shirt outfit I love. Something I may have not put together.... But I also love the kimono. I should get mine out.
