Week 8 Style Challenge: Necklace Stack

Thank goodness last week's challenge is O-V-E-R.  Dresses + Homeschool Mom + 5 month old = NO NEED TO WEAR A FREAKING DRESS.  I tried, I really did.  I searched for an occasion to wear a dress.  Then the cold crept in and I got even MORE lazy about working a dress into my wardrobe.  Had it been a SWEATS challenge - I would have nailed it!

On to this week....
Tra la la la la....

I'm a crafter.  I have necklaces.  Lots of necklaces.  Half of which I have crafted myself.  Or my crafty queen  friend AMY has crafted for me.  Or my jewelry design extraordinaire VAL has gifted me.  

So this week's challenge is NECKLACE STACKING.  Not just one petite little pearl on a strand kind of necklace.  Oh no!  Grab a few...blindfolded if you dare...and wear them around your neck.

This I can do.  I have a few outings planned this week.  I THINK I CAN.  NO....I WILL SUCCEED.

I think I will post this sign on my front door...kind of like a "enter at your own risk AND don't judge me" warning.

Week 7: Style Challenge: Dress

Alrighty then.  How are we doing on our Style Challenges??  Anyone??
This week you need to try to wear a DRESS each day for 7 days.  So your assignment this evening is to dig around in your closet and pull out a few dresses you haven't worn in forever.  Dust them off, don't blink, pull out some tights or leggings to wear beneath them.  And make a pinkie promise with yourself (or your child if they are in the closet with you this very moment putting on mommy's shoes) to wear a dress a day this week.  Feel free to repeat a dress and switch up the accessories. 

Now, be gone with you.  Go play dress up!

Here is a bit of inspiration...

Style Challenge - Week 6 - BOOTS

It seems a BOOTS style dare might be a bit more fun in the summer time.  But we'll go with it.  Winter = Boots.  This should be a truly simple challenge week.  Tall boots, short boots, brown boots, black boots, cowboy boots, snow boots, dress boots, furry boots....you get the idea.

To add a little spice this week - try a boot and dress combo you've never tried.  Or boots that don't match your outfit.  

Whatever your style, boots are for every-booty.

I would love to wear boots and sweaters every day of the week!! Can if be fall all year round?
