Lucky Challenge

Ever since starting this blog, I’ve been on the constant look out for ways to step out of my comfort zone and mix my clothes in new ways. So when I saw a feature in the April issue of Lucky that offered a month’s worth of outfits that mixed closet staples with trendy pieces for spring, I immediately noticed the outfits that I liked and the ones I wasn’t so sure about. However, I decided it would make the perfect challenge. For the entire month of June, I will base my clothing choices off of the combinations in the Lucky spread. I’m really excited about this, but also a little nervous. It might be a little crazy to commit a month of my life to this, but it should be fun!

Nautical Navy

I’ve spent all day studying for the SAT (next Saturday – yikes!) and desperately need a break, so I’m posting another look from a few days ago. I layered a draped open front vest and a ruffled cardigan over a classic striped tee for an easy look that was sophisticated and a little fun. Now back to studying!

What Happened to Spring?

With Memorial Day weekend this close and the weather stuck in wintery greys, it appears that spring will only exist in my wardrobe choices. So I’m pretending its spring by wearing this jacket with its dainty floral pattern and bright pink shoes. I’m also mixing it up with the striped tee to add a little more visual interest to this outfit. Crossing my fingers for warm weather this weekend!
