If you happen to be a follower of mine on insta, then you’ll know I recently did a 31 Day Style Challenge. I was inspired by a similar challenge by Popsugar and decided to give it a go. Let me tell you, it wasn’t easy!
The Style Challenge
Everyday you get dressed and maybe you put a little thought into it but the moment you have a guide, it’s totally different. I had to really rummage through my wardrobe each day to create looks that I thought would work. That was the fun part, the remembering to take a photo everyday part – not so fun. Luckily I have a few very awesome people who were always able to help me out.
Each day picking looks got more and more challenging. I found myself not wanting to repeat looks in any way but in some cases it couldn’t be avoided. The best part about it all is that I fell in love with a lot of my clothing again. It’s honestly a great way to establish what you will or won’t wear ever again. This also will help you define your style, which I can help you with too, if you read this.
DAY 1: The lazy look. ✌. The start of my 31 day style challenge! I got the inspiration from @popsugar and I'm keen to show you each day. 💕 This is definitely a lazy look for me, I'm big on jeans, I'm NOT a leggings kinda girl so this is ideal for me. Be sure to keep up with my looks! Happy Saturday! 🙌🌈 📸 – @jewbs7
This was day one and it’s possible one of my most faves. I love jeans, like honestly if I could have a whole section in my wardrobe dedicated to jeans I would. Now I know these are more than just a little bit ripped they’re rad and I love them!
Apart from that look, there were a few others that I really just loved! Because I tried my best to make each look different, my faves are all different too.
DAY 10: Opt for a jumpsuit! 🗯 Not the easiest choice in winter ❄ but luckily I have this great turtle neck to pair with my fave summer jumpsuit! ❤ Add a pair of boots and a bomber and you're set 🙌 I'm loving this style challenge so much and I love that it's encouraging me to mix and match with my wardrobe faves 😊 I hope you're all good on this fine Tuesday! 💋💫 📸 – @jewbs7
DAY 22: Layer up 💫 so this is a day late 🙈 Can I just say that yesterday was the longest day ever? Up from like 5am and busy all day 🙄 but that didn't stop me from ending the night with a drink or two 🍸 You can't really tell but I layered by wearing a skirt over a dress 💗 and completed with a belt, wild hair and an awesome bag 👝 I hope your Saturday was as jam packed as mine 😉 🌈 📸 – @jewbs7
Ironically, my top 3 faves don’t have jeans but I love them because they’re all so uniue. I never thought I would wear a turtle neck with a jumpsuit but hey! It was actually such a fun look that I’ll definitely recreate. My “Blogging All Day” tee look, need I say more? It’s just the bomb (if I do say so myself). The last one I love because I wore it to an event which made it extra special but also because I love that dress and that skirt so much individually and when they worked so well together I was over the moon.
My not-so faves
I didn’t not love any of my looks but some of them really could have been way more exciting. It was either a case of me not having what I wanted or having thought of a much better outfit after I had already left the house. Oh well, at least now I know.
DAY 17: The hair tuck 👩 if only my hair was as long as it used to be! This would have been way more effective but I'm happy with how it turned out 🌈 I'm also so blown away by how my colleague/photographer 📷 can make me look this decent after a long day at the office 😱 The only thing you can't see about my outfit are my brown ankle boots 👢 I love this challenge because I'm all about keeping my neck warm ❄ Happy Monday btw!! 💗 📸 – @luchaupt
DAY 12: Add a print/pattern ✨ Not my finest day but hey flu got the better of me 🤒 today this old fave of mine definitely came in handy! 💗 it was the pop of colour my dull, all-black outfit needed 👌 I hope you're doing better than me on this icy Wednesday ⛄ P.S I kinda wish it would snow to at least make this cold worth the while! ❄💙 📸 – @jewbs7
DAY 13: Put your brights front an centre! 🌈 Once again my sickness got the better of me but I'm so lucky that I have this awesome scarf to add a bright pop of colour to my look!💞 I have an obsession with scarves and this one I bought in Mauritius 🏝 Underneath I had a black knit jersey and I completed my look with my go-to denim jacket 💙 I love that this outfit shows that even the slightest pop of colour can make all the different! 💫💕 📸 – @lifebylaurey
My final thoughts
I would really love to do this challenge again but in summer. I think the outcome would be totally different and so colourful. As I mentioned earlier, this 31 Day Style Challenge is the perfect way to clean out your closet so I would definitely recommend that you give it a go!
