GYPO: Spring Challenge Week 3

Denim on denim. This very well might have been the scariest outfit of the challenge for me to do. I’m not sure what it is about it. Maybe the idea of being really matchy-matchy. It certainly took me a few tries to figure out what jeans to wear and what chambray shirt to pair with them. I finally settled on this outfit. But I still felt weird. After adding not one, but two statement necklaces, I was more in my element and ready to go.

What has been the hardest outfit of the challenge for you do do?



And see my fancy new red bag? I have been searching for one for some time and I stumbled upon this one at Macy’s. The best part? I got this one and another (you will see it soon) for a total of $52! Score!

Chambray: Kohl’s (similar)
Jeans: Gap
Booties: Old Navy (similar)
Necklaces: Lia Sophia, PearlsStory
Bracelets: Loren Hope, Kiel James Patrick
Purse: Danielle Nicole
Watch: Daniel Wellingon

    I love, love, love this look on you! And I love how you made it your own! The hardest thing for me this challenge is pastels and florals…I just don’t wear them.

    I agree with you, the denim on denim is terrifying and I have to admit, I still haven’t really tried it…

      This was my first time wearing it, and I’m not sure I would repeat it honestly. Maybe in the summer with jean shorts instead? Just a little too much denim for me 🙂

    This looks great on you! Love the denim on denim…wonder why I don’t wear it more!!

    That denim on denim scared me to death, too. And then I loved it! I like the why you added a touch of feminine with your pearls and statement necklace. I need to remember trying that when I wear my denim on denim again. I think it is going to become one of my go-to outfits.

      Isn’t it great how these challenges push us out of our comfort zones and we end up finding new things to love? I’m still not sure on the whole denim on denim look, but I’m glad I could give you a little inspiration for next time. Can’t wait to see your next take on it 🙂

      Thanks Carrie. I’ve really started to like layering necklaces – especially statements. It really adds another dimension to an outfit.
