This month is flying by for me, but last week, I started getting a little tired of my pieces.
My schedule has been really different than usual this month, so it’s been challenging to come up with outfits that work for the activities we’ve had going on.
It’s also been cool and rainy…what?! It’s Texas. In July. These things do not normally go together.
But because of all that, I’ve come up with some different combinations that I wouldn’t have otherwise. I also realized I’d been resorting to the same types of combinations: tee with shorts or my maxi skirt, mostly. So I tried to reach for pieces I hadn’t worn much yet, and started pairing items together that I don’t usually, like my peplum top and shorts.
Here’s what I came up with:
Monday: Look 14
I wouldn’t normally think to pair the blush tank with the chartreuse sweater,
but everything else was dirty, and I ended up loving the way it looks.
Pairing unique colors together can give a look a more “grown up” feel.
After work, I changed into this to run a few errands. It was super comfortable and made me feel so chic. You can bet it’ll be on repeat after the challenge is over!
Tuesday: Look 16
This look was so easy and felt like I was wearing pajamas. Win. :) I wore it to a work meeting, and then changed into this:
We took the afternoon off to hang out with my in-laws, who were in town for a family wedding last weekend. My MIL and I went shopping and I found the most amazing printed skirt at the Clothes Mentor for $16 to replace an old one of mine.
Wednesday: Look 18
Classic pieces never fail to look polished together. Styling them with fun accessories and a brightly colored cardigan (that I forgot for the photo shoot) make them look fresh and modern.
Thursday: Look 19
This was one of my favorite combos. It was raining, so I opted for a dress to avoid getting my pants wet, and went with simple flats. I added in a subtle pattern mix with the leopard belt, and grabbed the cardigan since it was a tad cool.
Friday: Look 20
This is what I planned to wear to the wedding. Unfortunately, it took us double the usual time to get from Dallas to Austin and we missed the ceremony completely. I didn’t have time to change out of the dress I had worn to a funeral that morning, so I partied in a non-challenge-approved dress.
Saturday: Look 21
Before we headed back, we meandered around Austin (and I took zero photos…what is wrong with me?), ate at um, several restaurants (they just have so many delicious options!) and caught up with friends. It was the perfect way to end the weekend trip.
Sunday: Look 22
It’s warming up again! This felt fresh and summery after a week of layers.
