Style Me April: Days 1-10


Here we are in the middle of April already! Another month is passing by so quickly! I was happy to get into April since I knew it would start to warm up and I could start wearing something other than jeans and boots and sweaters. (While I write this, I must tell you that last night we got 3 inches of snow here in MI!). Here are the first ten days of the challenge in a recap.

Day 1- Skirting Around Town

This was a really fun outfit for me.  I put some old and new(ish) things together and created this look.  I love the graphic tee and this skirt has always been one of my favorites. I also chose these lace up shoes to go with this look and love it!

Day 2- Neutral and a Pop of Color

I will tell you that I bought these jeans some time ago and didn’t feel super great about wearing them.  I was participating in a clean eating challenge for a couple of weeks and put these on and they felt great! I even belted them! This pretty coral jacket has been in my closet for years and is one that I enjoy wearing in the spring/summer.

Day3- Oh Hello Sailor

This was a fun kind of matchy-matchy outfit with all of the blues and greens. I only felt semi-nautical wearing stripes so I added a fun graphic tee that I picked up at Old Navy for $5.

Day 4- Day to Night

I bought this dress at Loft last year on a big sale but I really hadn’t worn it. The winter was so bitterly cold this year that I tended to wear a uniform of sweaters, jeans and boots.  I welcomed the opportunity to show others how you could change a simple dress from one look to another.  This can be done with really any dress and any accessories.  I only wish I had somewhere great to go that night that I wore this dress!

Day 5- April Showers

This was a Saturday and I am telling you that we lucked out with a gorgeous day and no showers at all.  I was happy to dress down for a fun day of scrapbooking with a friend.  I love the look of boyfriend jeans, boyfriend cardigan and oxfords. 

Day 6- Always Nabs a Compliment

I purchased this shirtdress a few years back and every time I wear it, I receive a compliment.  I wore it earlier in the year and styled it with a brown shoe and a leopard clutch and it looked great that way as well.  I figured I would try to dress it up for spring so I paired a floral clutch and striped wedge with it.  I also brought out the yellow necklace for a more springtime feel.

Day 7- Pretty in Pastels

I have a weakness for colored jeans and when I saw these lavender ones at Kohls, I knew I would have a lot to wear with these.  I really don’t prefer to dress in pastels that often as I tend to feel a little like an Easter egg,  I also wasn’t crazy about this tunic but my husband loves it so I thought I would wear it anyways.

Day 8- Jungle Tribal Tropics

So this day was unique in that I really didn’t know what direction to take the theme so I went with an animal print clutch and a floral blouse and olive jeans.  Maybe I am dressed up on a safari?

Day 9- Pump up the Volume

No picture here because it was a Wednesday and I didn’t have a chance to snap pictures. My son and I also attend a health and exercise class on Wednesday night so there wasn’t an outfit to share. I can tell you that on Instagram I noticed a lot of girls were pumping up the volume on their hair or they showed some sort of outfit themed around music.

Day 10- Borrowed or Thrifted

This was probably one of my favorite days because I was able to share the dress and purse that I recently purchased from Goodwill. I love the print and the cut of the dress and I thought it went perfectly with the jean jacket for spring.

There are the first ten days of Style Me April! This was a lot of fun and I will continue to styling my outfits to fit with the upcoming themes.

Hope you all are having a great week!
