I cracked up when Cyndi said on Friday that she had just styled 22 days of clothes that she can’t wear yet. Those are my sentiments exactly. Here I am, over a week out from the end of my spring style series, and it still feels like winter. It’s crazytown!!!
Of course, it was hot until mid-October, so I probably have no right to complain. Has anyone else noticed that weather-wise, our entire calendar seems to have shifted forward about 6 weeks??? It’s been almost consistently so for the past few years. Let’s just call today March 1st and go from there.
Any-who. I’m sure I lose readers every time I gripe about the weather so I will just shut up about it. Some day I might actually get to wear these outfits. For now, I’ll just admire them from here beside my space heater wearing a turtleneck and UGGs.
Cyndi and I always like to do a recap post after one of our style challenges. I will also link this on my sidebar so it can be a resource to you over the next few months.
Of course, there will be more spring outfits to come to the blog, but I usually take a break from outfits for a week or two after one of the challenges ends to give myself a break and so I can share some other types of content. I actually just reached out to Alison to see if she’s free to shoot this week, so I hope to have something new for you soon!
Meanwhile, let’s recap.
The first week of our spring style challenge was a short one. I launched the series with a cheerful striped sweater from Old Navy and jeans from Madewell, and on Day 2, I wore a casual weekend look with a varsity tee and deconstructed white jeans.
Week 2 was probably the week I featured the most variety in my outfits. I actually managed to style a casual dress, a skirt outfit for work, a couple of spring sweaters, white jeans, my new cropped skinnies, and a great pair of wedge sandals.
Week 3 brought a spring workout look, a couple of date night outfits, a casual weekend look with my new Vans, and a great little $22 twist tee.
I think Week 4 has my favorite outfits from the series. I love the date night look with the moto jacket, the teal knot front tee outfit is so fresh and pretty, and the blush denim jacket pairs so beautifully with grey jeans.
That tiered hem top is so good I styled it twice during this series, but my favorite outfit is the bright pink jeans with black sweater and block heel sandals. I threw it together at the last minute the morning of that shoot, and I was thrilled with how the pictures turned out.
I wrapped up the series with two spring dresses, a bootcut jeans outfit, a work wear look, and another cozy nod to the weekend.
WHEW! Even though it was a cold one, I feel like I put together some really cute looks, and I think there’s actually more variety than I realized. For a girl who is happy to wear the same pair of jeans 5 days a week, it’s always a challenge to create so many different looks in a short period of time, but it’s fun! I hope you enjoyed it as well.
I’ve got a few new posts in the works for this week, but I’ll be traveling over the weekend and I may take a couple of days off. It all depends on how much I can get prepped before I leave. I really wanted to get my white jeans review up this week, but I think it will have to wait until I get back. I have some other ideas, though, and I’m sure I’ll feel more inspired after I get back from the mall today. That usually does the trick!
I’m going to Florida with a few of my girlfriends for the weekend, and I can’t wait! While it’s supposed to be a vacation, I did schedule a shoot with a local photographer, so when I get back, I’ll have some resort wear looks to share with you.
I hope you all enjoy the rest of your Monday, and be sure to visit Cyndi for her 22 Days of Spring Fashion recap!
