Nothing like kicking off the New Year by forgetting to do your very own 31 day style challenge right? January 1 was spent in its entirety in workout attire for the following: yoga, house cleaning, brunch, more cleaning and a few hours spent bouldering/free climbing some small rocks along our trail system (and then icing my knee while sipping #Whole30 compliant hot tea). Nothing much to speak of with those outfits and you can see a bit of them on Insta. I will say I am loving the Fabletics Salar Capri pants I purchased a few months ago – they look great and seem to be standing up to the wear and tear I inflict on clothes. On to the challenge: the goal is to snap a picture of your outfit every day for 30 days. It’s designed to help you wear things you haven’t in a while and you can add any other little challenges you want: wear second hand pieces, mix and match outfits from only 20 pieces or dress up daily outfits by adding in different accessories. I am working on wearing more skirts during my 30 days.
Day 2: Andrew and I took a brief weekend trip to Salem to visit with some of his family so I packed lightly, using the same jeans and boots in Day 2 and 3. I like layering because it’s an easy way to add interest to outfits. Here I choose a cropped sweat shirt, very 80s, over a chambray top and a few necklaces.
Day 3: This is one of my more interesting necklaces, bordering on being ugly, but it’s just a piece I really like (purchased via estate auction). An oversized sweater can get tucked into bottoms with a belt to add another layer of visual interest and break up a straight line.
Day 4: Skirt! I thrifted this leather skirt many years ago and remains in my closet despite being a tad bit large. I balanced out the size with a puffer vest and an interesting muted color combo.
I’d love to have you join me over the next 27 days. You can play along by hash tagging: #chicstripes30daystylechallenge on twitter or instagram.
