I’m linking up with The Made Thing for her 21 Day Fashion Challenge. I made it through week 1- which was 6 outfit prompts.

I enjoyed finding things to fit the prompts and tried to find items in my wardrobe that are not my usual go-to items. I’m trying to use things I have in new ways, and I really have enjoyed being more mindful as I get dressed. I feel like I usually look “cute” but I’m making more of an effort to put looks together.
Sunday was all about the Sunday Statement. I was working in the 2-3 year old nursery at church, so my statement also needed to be comfortable. I wore an Aztec fringe top from a local boutique, loose black capris from TJ Maxx, a red Lucky Brand necklace, and TOMS sandals from Zulily. It was comfortable, and I got lots of compliments on the look.
Monday was all about your favorite piece- and mine are these Margaret M pants. They are a Canadian brand that I found initially through StitchFix– and I call them my magic pants. They are stretch waist band. They pull on, hold everything in, and are SO comfy. I LOVE them. My plaid tunic tank came from local boutique Hazel’s Haven, and my lace cardi came from POSH in Tulsa. My sandals are SUPER comfy from Rue La La– Rockport Nahara sandals.
Tuesday’s look was all about things you wear often. For me, that’s leopard and turquoise. So I wore a leopard belted tunic that I bought at Holiday Market, a turquoise necklace from StitchFix, some leggings I bought in San Francisco (that are thick and comfortable!), and wedges from Macy’s.
Wednesday’s prompt was Power Outfit- something you feel powerful in. For me, that’s a pencil skirt and heels, but I didn’t want to look boring. So I rocked my pink pencil skirt from Loft (which I’ve had over a year and only worn twice!), with a leopard shirt from StitchFix, and shoes from TJ Maxx. The necklace is Sparkling Sage from Rue La La.
For Thursday, Kim challenged us to wear something that has a memory. I decided to wear a dress that I bought while on my honeymoon in Hawaii! It’s a really casual dress that I bought at an open air market- so I dressed it up for work with a jean blazer from Loft, and TOMS wedges from Zulily. I decided it needed some sparkle and added a necklace from Forever 21.
Friday we were challenged to “gussy up a T shirt and make a statement.” I had an off-site leadership event for work, so I couldn’t go as casual as normal for a Friday. I wore a Loft v-neck T-Shirt, and I gussied it up with a kimono cardigan from a local boutique, a long necklace that I bought in New York (it’s a Tory Burch knockoff from China Town ha!), with some black jogger pants from Dillard’s and wedges from TJ Maxx. I think this kimono cardigan makes a statement on its own, so I didn’t add too much to this look.
This week was definitely an experiment in reaching past the usual pieces and wearing things I love, but things I don’t often choose. I’m glad to be playing along because I’m finding a new love for the clothes in my closet!
