20x20 Style Challenge Week #3

Week #3 of the Style Challenge and...

I miss going into my closet.  I feel like I have been missing a long- lost friend.  Is that weird?  I don't have that many clothes but the ones I have are treasures and this challenge has seriously made me appreciate every piece I own.  And I guess I should spill some beans now.  I actually don't have that much.  Since moving, my husband and I share one small hall closet.  So technically I won't say I'm cheating but I pretty much cycle through about 60 items on any given time just because we don't have room for more.  

Ahhh, I feel like I have bared my soul.  Thank you for listening.

Now on to the fashion rundown:

Monday- Items #9, 10, 15, 16 plus leopard infinity scarf
 Top: Target, Tank: Target, Jeggings: Gap, Boots: Rampage, Scarf: Kohl's

Tuesday- Items #2, 9, 11, 13 plus leopard H&M scarf
Top: Old Navy, Tank: Target, Skinnies: Old Navy, Boots: Delia*s

Wednesday- Items #1, 4 12, 17
Top: Target, Cardi: Target, Jeans: Gap, Boots: Rampage

Thursday- I was at home sick, so I spared you from PJ selfies.

Friday- Items #3, 5, 9, 15

I forgot a picture.  Let's blame the sickness.

Sweater: Banana Republic, Tank: target, Jeans: Apt 9, Boots: Delia*s

My superstar pieces this week: my Target long and lean tank and my Delia*s and Rampage boots.  I'm thinking I don't do a very good job of spacing out my tank top outfits. hehe.

Very glad to say next week is our last Style Challenge Week!!!  Again, I miss my closet.

20x20 Style Challenge: Week #2

Another week down in the Style Challenge(!) this is my recap of Week #2:

Top: Old Navy, Jeans: Gap, Boots: Delia*s

Tuesday- Items #1, 9, 10, 13
Top: Merona, Tank: Target, Jeggings: Gap, Boots: Delia*s

Friday- Items #6, 7, 13 plus gray tights

Monday was Parent Conferences and the day was emotionally draining so that set the tone for not posting a picture on Instagram (and carried through the whole week.)  Also, I finally understand now what people mean when they say "black is hard to photograph".

My favorite outfits this week were Wednesday's, which I've dubbed my "Horse riding outfit", and Friday's dress and sweater combo.

My star piece this week were my cognac boots, oh so comfy.

Ready for Week #3- we're half way done, People!!!

20x20 Style Challenge: Week #1 recap

Let me just say I love making lists and checking things off lists: pure exhilaration.  So this challenge has been right up my alley.  I made a Master list of clothing items numbered 1-20 and have mixed and matched my items for the whole month so I know exactly what to wear the whole challenge.  Its amazing not having to think about what I'm going to wear tomorrow!
The Master copy

Monday- Items #1, 2, 5, 14 plus Vegan leather Old Navy jacket

What Kinsey Wore: Cowboy Party

Saturday Kinsey and I celebrated a friend's son's birthday at the local Equestrian Center.  It was out in the sticks so the term "local" applies loosely.  I'm a nervous driver; like I always do the posted speed limit, both hands on the wheel, cry if i think I'm lost, nervous driver.  Basically, I drive like a granny.  So I gave myself an hour to get to a place I've never been to before and only had one mishap (thank you dog walkers for the directions!) and got there early to help my friend set up.

The venue provided the animals for a petting zoo, pony rides and picnic tables. Jennifer, my friend and Birthday boy's mom, brought everything else. It was the perfect day for a party! The weather was on its best behavior and the baby animals were to die for.
Kinsey played with her friend Lyvia; these two cutie pies are three weeks apart and have known eachother since in utero lol.

And I got to hang out with some wonderful adult friends including Lyvia's mom, Jessica.  (I have known Jennifer and Jessica since my Gap glory days- 9 years ago-Jess was my favorite manager and Jennifer is actually the one who inspired me to be a Preschool teacher, so lots of love for these two ladies!)

Kinsey's outfit-
