OOTDs – Spring GYPO Style Challenge Days 4 and 6

I’m running a bit behind with my outfits for the Spring GYPO Style Challenge, but I didn’t want to skipover these 2 outfits because they’re just so cute!  My mom, the blogger behind onceuponatimehappilyeverafter.com, visited this weekend and we had a full day of girl time on Saturday.  We spent the day blogging in the morning, going shopping in the afternoon at Target, Old Navy and Charming Charlie’s, working out in the gym in the early evening, taking pictures of our outfits for our blogs, followed by more blogging while watching one of our favorite movies, Midnight in Paris.  It was a lot of fun; I can’t wait until we’re both living in the same city again.  Here we are playing “Fashion Haus”, as my niece would say:

Fashion HausI wasn’t entirely sure how to style Day 4’s outfit, but this is what I came up with.  I exchanged the recommended white tank with a red tank and chose studs over hoop earrings.  I think the shoes are really the stars of this outfit.

I REALLY liked Day 6’s outfit.  A LOT.  It just looks so sunny and happy, don’t you think?  I know the mint/teal necklace and watch don’t match any of the colors in the cardigan, but they just seem to go together for some reason…they add a subtle pop of color and make the outfit a bit more interesting to look at.  The squid earrings and bunny watch add just the right amount of quirkiness to the outfit.

OOTDs – Spring GYPO Style Challenge Days 2 and 3

I’m mixing patterns again! This is my outfit for the second day of the Get Your Pretty On Spring Style Challenge.  You can learn more about the challenge here.  I really like how the wedges I’m wearing in the picture below blend into my feet.  It makes me look so much taller!  Plus, these bad boys go with almost anything…AND they’re super comfy!  This dress is just the perfect length because it hits right above the knee and covers up all of my lumps and bumps.

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!!!
