OOTD – Spring GYPO Style Challenge Day 1

The Get Your Pretty On Style Challenge – Spring 2015 started Monday!!!!  If you are interested in signing up, it’s not too late.  Click on the image below:


I had quite a bit of work yesterday, so I’ll be posting the Tuesday and Wednesday outfits together later today.  Monday’s outfit challenge tasked us to pair a bright jacket, a grey t-shirt, camo jeans, a long necklace and bright flats.  I’m not a camo type of girl, so I opted for grey jeans instead of the camo jeans, and replaced the jacket with a cardigan since it was SUPER humid and nasty on Monday here in Texas.  The cardigan, in reality, is a soft coral color…not the blaringly orange hue you see in the pictures.  I’ve tried so many camera settings to try and find a solution to the color distortion, but nothing works!!! Have any tips?  Please share them in the comments section!  I chose a coral cardi because there are hints of coral on the shoes; it adds a pop of color to the outfit, too.  Pardon the eyebrows…they look downright squiggly AND fluffy on one side!  I must’ve gone a bit nuts with the eyebrow pencil.  Here’s what I came up with:

  1. Great way to adapt the camo pants. Your cardigan is cute whether it is peachy or orange. And I love the turquoise or teal necklace with the color of your sweater, whatever it is. Val and I are wearing yesterday’s outfit today so will be posting that on Friday. Anxious to see your other challenge outfits this week. Even more anxious to see YOU! I love you.

    • Thank you!!!….OMG aren’t they cute? I found them on eBay. I know there are some of the same shoes with different patterns on poshmark… There may be more on eBay, too, that I didn’t see. 🙂


    • Thanks so much, Shaunacey! I’m glad you like the shoes. I wasn’t sure about wearing them because they’re kind of bright, but they were perfect for this particular challenge. 🙂
