What I Wore & Did: Week 1

Whooaaaa Friday already?! I’ll take it! Winking smile

As I have mentioned, I’m participating in the Style Me Pretty Challenge (<—You can still sign up to get outfits & the shopping list! Referral link – FYI!) and I’m having a blast with it! It’s been so neat to see all the different outfits I can make with many things I already had in my closet. I did purchase a few new things too, and I’ve had so much fun searching for the best bargains. I’m totally a nerd and get super stoked about good deals.

I wanted to show some of the outfits I’ve been wearing this week along with what I did while wearing them. I’ve had to modify some of the outfits due to the fact that I live in the Phoenix area and there’s no such thing as “fall” here, but I’ve still been able to use inspiration from the outfits provided in the challenge. I only have a few outfits to share this week since my weekend was spent in sweaty workout clothes at my RPM training, but I should have more for the next couple weeks.

Outfit #1:

This outfit was worn on Monday to do a few errands in the morning – grocery store, post office, etc.  I was feeling super casual and didn’t feel like doing much with my hair, so it ended up in a top knot. I thought the dangly earrings helped make up for my lack of hair enthusiasm and add some color to my outfit (hard to tell in the photo, but they’re a dark red). I’ve been loving the stripes + leopard combo lately.

Striped Top: Old Navy / Denim Shorts: American Eagle (super old) / Leopard flats: Target / Earrings: random boutique / Gold watch: Target

Outfit #2:

This outfit was worn on Tuesday, which included MOPS in the morning and church small group in the evening. And hey, I actually did my hair! (It only happens maybe twice a week. Winking smile) I really appreciated the simplicity of this outfit, and it was comfy to boot!

Blouse: TJMaxx / Black skinny jeans: Forever 21 (super old) / Leopard flats: Target / Gold watch: Target

Outfit #3:

I wore this outfit on Wednesday after teaching my Total Body Conditioning class. I had to make a return at Target, pick up a couple things I forgot on Monday at the grocery store, and then we had one of Cody’s co-workers over for dinner. Once again, loving the mixing of patterns here with the plaid and leopard.

Plaid top: Target (last year) / Denim shorts: American Eagle (super old) / Tan pointed toe flats: Old Navy / Leopard belt: ThredUp (<—referral link) / Gold watch: Target / Stud earrings: Target

Moral of the story: Half of my wardrobe is from Target. Winking smile

But seriously, I don’t spend a lot of money on clothing, especially if it’s a trendy thing that I know will be out of style within the next year or two. I don’t mind spending more money on a quality pair of jeans, shoes, jacket, or purse I know will last forever, but that’s about it. Not to mention I’m a stay-at-home-mom that teaches fitness classes and has no business wearing Dolce & Gabbana or Chanel or Dior or any of those other brands I hardly know how to say.

Anyways, we have a busy but fun day ahead! Early morning BodyPump class, wedding rehearsal, lunch with a friend, and a Bunco night with my MOPS group. Hope your weekend is a great one!
