A Post Full of Firsts

We're on to week 2 of  The Challenge. So far I'm having so much fun doing this, so thank you Alison for getting me out of my comfort zone and giving me easy outfits that I just have to grab in the morning and don't really have to think much about it.

In case you missed the first 2 days, click here. Now onto this weeks outfits.


Day 3:

This is the first time I've ever worn boyfriend jeans. I was really skeptical about them, but bought them from Old Navy for less than $20, so I figured I wasn't wasting too much money if I didn't like them, but turns out I really do! I thought they would make me look super short, but I don't think they do. What do you think?

Boyfriend Jeans - Old Navy, Bright Tank - Target, Sweater - Target, Shoes - Nordstroms, Necklace - Old, but they are everywhere


Most comfortable wedges EVER! Go get a pair right now! She told me too, so I had to listen.
 Day 4

I think this one was the most out of my comfort zone. I mean a striped jacket and my first time wearing a chambray shirt? In the same outfit? I never would have thought to pair this together. Perhaps it was the 4:30am wake up time that in my delirious state I had a stroke of genius or I grabbed the wrong thing, either way I think it worked really well.

 Pink Jeans - White House Black Market (Fall Clearance),  Shirt - Target, Jacket - Target, Shoes - DSW (old), Scarf - Old Navy
 


Day 5

I thought this outfit was ultra comfy and great for a Friday casual work day (oops I'm writing this at work, and apparently I picked a picture with my eyes closed, oops!)


Skinny Jeans - Loft (these are curvy jeans, they are the best!), T-Shirt - Target, Sweater - Target, Shoes - Toms (similar), Bracelet and Necklace - Francesca's Collection (old)



Day 6 

I love maxi skirts I think this might be my go-to outfit from now on...super comfortable and you look put together.

Bright Tank - Target, Skirt - Nordstroms, Cropped Jean Jacket - Old Navy, Shoes - Nordstroms (no longer available in this color), Necklace - Old, Bracelets (old)
 Thought I would add a cute picture of Mini Fox



Day 7

I think this might be one of my favorites. I love how the cuff of the shirt is rolled over the sweater and the blue necklace, adds just the right amount of statement.

Boyfriend Jeans - Old Navy, Top - Target, Sweater - Target, Shoes - Toms (similar), Necklace - Forever 21 (old), Bracelet - Brighton
 


Day 8

I think this was my least favorite of this week. Only because I couldn't find accessories that made me feel like this was my own. I was in a rush in the morning and couldn't find anything to offset the pretty teal color of the shirt.  In other news, this was the first time that I rolled a pair of jeans that weren't the boyfriend jeans that were rolled for me. And it was my first time wearing my leopard flats.

Skinny Jeans - Loft, Shirt - Target, Shoes - DSW (No longer available), Necklace - Loft (old)

Baby Fox wanted in with me



Baby Fox wanted to help me take selfies, Mr. wasn't home when I wanted to take these pictures.

See him holding the remote?

Day 9

I thought this outfit was super fun to wear. Maybe next time I'll wear my leopard flats.

White Jeans - Loft, Bright Tank - Target, Cropped Jean Jacket - Target, Shoes - Nordstroms, Scarf - Old Navy



This challenge is definitely pushing me to do things I wouldn't have done on my own, leopard flats (actually my hookerish shoes, I have had them for over 6 years and have worn them once), boyfriend jeans, rolling my jeans, Chambray shirts, jean jackets with jeans, striped blazers with a chambray shirt, the list goes on. I'm excited to see where these outfits take me next!

I had some random stuff to tell you, but the post is getting mega long, so I'll save them for another day :) Hopefully I don't forget them in the mean time!
