Marvelous May Style Challenge: Days 8-14

Well, it happened again! Another week flew by! This style challenge has been so much fun! I know I made it up but I am allowed to say that it's been fun, right? I have enjoyed seeing everyone's pictures on Instagram and have loved connecting with new people! 

Day 8- My Favorite Things- I always say my favorite things aren't things- but if I had to choose some things that I love to wear and use, this picture is a good example! I love wearing dresses (especially with pockets), statement necklaces, leopard print, bows on toes- you get the idea! 

I chose to feature my pal Keila @mommyinmilwaukee on this day for a couple of reasons- first of all, she is one of the most adorable expectant mothers I have ever seen! Secondly, how could I not pick her since we match? 

Day 9- Silver Linings- every cloud has a silver lining- we've ll heard this before so why not show off our silver? I'm doing this in the form of both shoes and accessories and wearing Old Navy clothing and shoes! 

I chose my friend Heather @stylejourney to feature on this day because I loved all of the gray and silver that she had on together! Cute look! 

Day 10- My Mom Wore This- I thought this would be either really easy or really hard for most people- I was surprised at the amount of participation this one got! I loved looking at pictures from days gone by of what moms wore and I loved seeing the creativity and sentiment in the outfits! I have on a normal outfit but chose to wear my mom's sapphire necklace that she gave to me. I really should wear it more often! 

I chose @fashionshouldbefun to feature on this day because I was so touched by her post. She is wearing a sweatshirt from her mom. What a wonderful tribute to her! 

Day 11- Mother Knows Best- you know the television show Father Knows Best? I always think mothers know best but let's keep that between us! I chose to wear a maxi dress and dress it up with beaded necklaces for Mother's Day. Check out my last Sunday Style post for all of the details! 

I chose to feature @cherryann for this day because I loved the advice she talked about her mom giving her. I also have to say that Cherry's looks everyday are awesome and I love the fact that she has gotten her office involved in the style challenge as well! 

Day 12- I've Got the Blues- because who doesn't have the blues on a Monday? I chose to wear my cobalt pants with a lightweight top since we were having a little warmer weather. I've also got my new purse with me in this outfit! 

I chose @lynnnie34 to feature for this day because I loved all of her blues- she even painted her toenails blue! How fun! 

Day 13- Minty Fresh- I did not realize that I had a teeth cleaning appointment on this day so isn't that funny that it was on the same day as this theme? I must have subconsciously known it when I made up the list! Anyways, I am wearing some minty fresh clothes with some wide leg pants that I have had forever. It was a nice change up from the skinny jeans that I normally wear. 

I chose to feature @clotheshaulic for this day because she was looking good in head to toe mint- even her jewelry! 

Day 14- It's a Good Day for a White Wednesday- it's a play on words of the famous Billy Idol song White Wedding- anyways, I chose white for the top only on this day mainly because it was raining and I didn't want my white pants to get dirty- I love that all of these clothes came from JCPenney because they are so affordable as well as cute! The teal pants are a pretty bright color and the pop of leopard was unexpected. This may be my favorite outfit from the week! 

I chose to feature @melbella14 for this day because I loved her look with the white dress! So pretty and fun while being completely functional and easy to run around in! 

Well that's a wrap of the second week. I hope you all are having as much fun as I am planning your outfits! Thanks to those who are playing along- every day more people are joining in the fun! Make sure you are using the #marvelousmaystyle tag when posting your outfits or looking for inspiration from so many ladies!
