Summer Style Challenge Begins!

Posted on: June 16, 2015

Today is the first day of the GYPO Sumer Style Challenge

and when we got the first outfit e-mailed last night I was so excited.

I had actually bought a pair of print shorts and was so ready to rock them, 

despite my not loving shorts….

After trying them on and not being able to wear the wedges, due to my knee being sore,

I switched out for a print skirt instead…

This is a fun Navy and creme patterned Loft skirt that I thrifted. 

The purple top is one I scored from Jane.com 

I added a scarf tied to my waist, but not sure I am loving it in pictures…

I swear it looked better in the mirror…

I love pairing Navy with purple and had fun adding my hat and purse into the mix…

I bought this fun hat from Walmart and haven’t worn in nearly enough in past seasons.

Perhaps this season that will change as bigger brimmed hats are on trend, and what the heck we are having extremely hot temperatures…

DSC_0306Tomorrow we are expecting 100 which is rare, but in June, even crazier!  

Now I must add that all I can notice is that I didn’t keep up with my false tanning this weekend! 

Dear Readers, I can’t say how glad I am that this Summer Challenge is starting because I am experiencing my first ever fashion depression… I think skipping over Spring and these hot temps are making it hard to feel creative.  

How are temps in your region?  

Were you lucky enough to have a Spring?

Gratitude

I am grateful that my knee felt better today, but still I wore a brace except for my photos…

I am grateful that I am having so much fun seeing what all the other challengers are wearing and our shared experience of support on the private Facebook page.  

I am grateful for a very low key relaxing Monday! 

I am grateful that I was surprised to see that my husband’s check was bigger than he had told me, I can not say enough how grateful I am that this job is going so well and giving us what we need to help our kids through college…

I am grateful to my son’s for helping with some chores for the day to allow me to take it easy for my knee, I rewarded them with pizza delivery!

I hadn’t thought to pair navy with purple, but it looks nice! I hope you enjoy your style challenge. It is also VERY hot here in Kentucky, too! We had some cool, rainy weather, amd then it started feeling like July!

I’ve been getting things prepared for my part in our church’s upcoming Vacation Bible School. One thing I like to do is “dress the part”. Our theme is “Camp Kilanmanjaro”, so I’ll be wearing my animal print long skirt one night and leopard print scarf the next. I’d like to find a cargo vest, so I’m going thrifting this afternoon!

Such fun! I love your plan and hope you find that cargo vest!
