 Day 3 of my 31 Day style challenge! It's turtle neck season instead of wearing the plain black turtle neck wear one with a pop of color! I chose to wear my orange turtle neck from @hm. My festive mom jeans I got from the thrift store ! Also these black open toed booties I got on sale from @charlotterusse !

 

 

 

 

 4. Utilize Color Block

 

I took it way back. This 60's mod style dress was a great thrift find ! I love the color blocking, it looks like a piece of walking art! I challenge you, if don't already find yourself a dress with color blocking.

 

5. Fireside Chats and Denim to Match 

Denim skirts in the winter ! Try it out, it's totally fine to pair your jean skirt with a cute pair of either black tights, or whichever color you prefer and your fave boots.

 

 

6. Embrace the Bold

This look is all about standing out in a crowd. A lot of people I find shy away from the color yellow, I say embrace it

 

 

 

7.  Get The Fur-fect look

Step outside your comfort zone by bringing out a fur with some color! This is definitely a statement piece that will make anyone the center of attention.

 

 8. Metallic for the Win

Would you believe me if I tell you I got this skirt for $1 at @charouletterouse. I got the army jacket from the thrift store and the turtle neck from @jcrew. Make sure you get a metallic skirt they are in trend and come in a wide assortment of colors.

 

 

 

 

9. About My Business

Business casual look. I got this polka dot shirt and tan khakis from @charlotterusse and paired them with nude heels @dswshoelovers

 

 10. About My Business Part 2

 Oddly I know shoppers wouldn't think to shop @boohoo for a professional dress for work or an interview . However, they had a great selection of business casual / business professional dresses. I especially love this one because of the tan, white, and black color blocking. Fashion work tip. You can still wear dresses even if it's cold you can always pair your dress with a warm pair of tights and boots or booties !

 

 11. College Diet

When in doubt of what to wear where a graphic tee. I got this college diet shirt from @pacsun . I got the leather pants, and red beret from the thrift store. .

Yes this is the outfit from yesterday however I added my favorite tan duster. Style Lesson #1 always use what you have to add flavor to your look. You don't always have to purchase something new.

 13. Fringe it Up !

Can you tell I love fringe and adding a pop of color? Fringe jacket can be a good way to take a trip back to the 70s.

21. A Girl That Can Do Both

Get you a girl that can do both. I have never picked up a basketball in my life. But, my favorite movie as a child was Spacejam. I wanted to do an outfit inspired by it. I also wanted to give you a style challenge that wasn't glam but chill and comfortable. Throw on your fave jersey and a pair of black or green pants  or jeans and pair them with your fave sneakers .

Today's challenge is to make a plaid pair of pants go from business to casual. Here I added a red velvet crop top to dress down the look.

 

 

 

23. Clueless Vibes

At this point my style challenge is turning into a daily dose of 90s fashion. I'm in love with everything furry. This challenge was about mixing up patterns and textures and seeing if it work together. Originally I thought the look clashed. However when I added the gold belt as an accessory, it gave it a new feel!

 

 

24. Denim on Denim

 Pairing denim on denim is always fun! My challenge to you is to create a denim in look that will have heads turning! 

 

 

 

25. Finding the Right Match

Who says you can't match your shirt with your skirt! I say in fashion matching colors and patterns is just as stylish as pairing different patterns and textures to achieve a look. 

 

 

26. Business Does Not Have to be Boring

Make sure you switch up your business casual style with a skirt with colorful lines and patterns & pair it with a neutral top (white,grey,tan).

 

 

27. Sweater Weather

This  challenge was focused on sweaters ! I love sweaters especially wants with embroidered designs on it. Sweaters are amazing because you can always either dress it up with a cute pair of pants and heels or boots. You can dress it down as well by a pair of jeans and leather jackets. The possibilities are endless.

28. Jumpsuit Styling

Jumpsuits are perfect for women on the go because you can throw it on and pair it with a duster or your fave jacket. You can dress it up or down by putting on booties or sneakers

29.Bootie Gang

Booties are essential to your wardrobe, they can easily elevate your look or give it some edge.

I love the sleeves on this shirt. Do you have a shirt like this in your closet and are want to make it a fall look? Try adding a jumpsuit over top of it to get it dimensions and layers to your winter wardrobe. You can even add a cute fur stone or beret !
