I’ve skipped the last few IG Style Challenges due to moving – my clothes are in boxes, totes and bags! We’re in between houses at the moment, staying with family, so the blog posts might be a bit sporadic until we’re settled in again. We did manage to get to a cookout this weekend and had a good time with friends.
I ended up adding a brown belt and swapping the flip flops for brown sandals. Tee and jacket are Stitch Fix, pants are thrifted from Savers, and earrings are Nickel & Suede.
Did any of you get a head start on 4th of July celebrations?
Challenges for June 15:
- #911style_challenge // FAVORITE FEMININE ITEM
- #wearwhatwherejune // LINEN AND LACE
This blouse from Stitch Fix is probably the most feminine item I own (and haven’t worn yet!). Since I couldn’t find anything linen or lace, I’m counting the delicate mesh top of the blouse as lace.
Do you have lace in your feminine wardrobe?
No IG Challenges this weekend, but I will do my best to start up again tomorrow. I wore the above outfit today to take Little One to a truck show (and managed to miss some spots with my sunscreen 😦 hello red shoulders and throat – ugh). We saw some great friends and cool trucks.
Shirt is Loft (from eBay), shorts (old TJMaxx or Marshalls), shoes (old) Old Navy, and a new pair of Nickel & Suede earrings.
How do you spend your summer Sundays?
Challenges for June 11:
- #911style_challenge // FAVORITE ROMPER
- #wearwhatwherejune // BELTED IN
I don’t own any rompers, but this little Dixieland Boutique dress is close, plus it has a built in tie for the Belted In challenge. As the weather gets hotter, grabbing a cute dress is an easy way to look presentable with little effort. I added some (old) necklaces and a pair of my go-to Nickel & Suede earrings (Scuba Blue is on sale this month, only $16!) to finish off the look.
Are you in on the romper trend?
Challenge for June 6:
- #wearwhatwherejune // GLADIATORS OR ESPADRILLES
- (no challenge from #911style_challenge today)
I paired my ESPADRILLES from Target with my Stitch Fix Corinna top and thrifted camouflage pants. My Nickel & Suede earrings add a much needed pop of color in scuba blue.
If you missed it, check out my previous post for an explanation of what I’m doing here. 🙂
Challenges for June 2:
- #911style_challenge // NEGLECTED SHOES
- #wearwhatwherejune // GOLDEN GODDESS, SILVER SIREN
I opted to focus on SILVER SIREN with my earrings, scarf, and shoes. Earrings are Nickel & Suede.
My scarf is (old) from a small boutique, but has a really pretty silver thread running through it.
My NEGLECTED SHOES are actually from my wedding (4 years ago) and I’ve only recently begun to wear them again! They have a pretty silver sheen to them in the right lighting.
Do you ever build an outfit using a “theme” for inspiration?
I’m not necessarily one to indulge in the latest trends, but I’ve been seeing these cool leather earrings all over Instagram lately. I wasn’t sure if they would be “me”, but I like the idea of supporting a mom/small-business owner so I gave in and ordered a pair from Nickel & Suede. They are supposed to be “life changing” due to the fact that they’re incredibly light weight. Let me tell you: they are SO light I can’t even feel them! I would absolutely recommend them to anyone looking for stylish statement jewelry. I can already picture these earrings being my new go-to accessory.
These earrings are available in multiple sizes and colors; I’m wearing Silver Chrome in size small.
Which ones will you choose..?
