Winter/Holiday Style Me Pretty Challenge. Week 1.

I am so super excited to be a part of a wardrobe challenge.  I feel like I have been in a wardrobe funk for quite a while.  I've gained some weight and just feel uncomfortable.  Sometimes you just have to get over it and do with what you have.  So that's what I am doing.

Just recently my friend Jenni, introduced me to Get Your Pretty On (*affiliate link).  I was soooo excited about this that I signed up right away!  A challenge to improve my wardrobe, and in WINTER?!?! I'm in.

Alison, our virtual stylist has been featured in some major magazines so the idea of having her as my "personal" stylist made it even that much more exciting.  

For the next couple of weeks I will be sharing my outfits from the challenge.
So here you go...

Day One: 
Neutral Cable Knit Sweater, Fur Scarf, Skinny Jeans and Riding Boots.
For day one, I was super excited because it was casual but still cute enough to be dressed up and look pulled together.  It also happened to be my first day of work!  Yup this mama is back to work (more on that another day).  I could not find a Fur Scarf when I went shopping with my shopping list so I improvised and went with a cute plaid Holiday feeling scarf.  I'm still on the search for that "perfect" fur scarf.


Gotta Love the awkward selfie!  

Day Two:
Tunic Sweater, Puffer Vest, Leggings, Boot Socks and Riding Boots.
Ahhh the joys of forgetting to take my picture before work.  A tired mama taking a picture before I put my sweats on.  This was my version of a tunic because I could not find the perfect tunic, HA go figure!! That's what happens when you are SUUUUPER picky and have to have everything JUST right!  I could not find the style puffer vest that was featured on our list but I found this one at Kohl's that I really loved.  Not to thick or puffy.


I only have two outfits for now but next week will be jam packed.  I have work in the morning and want to make sure this gets out so you'll enjoy it as much as I have.  I have been so eager to get my nightly email to see what tomorrows outfit is.

Now for some fun!! Check out this awesome group of ladies that will be participating in this challenge weekly.

  1. I hear you on the "uncomfortable". I've been feeling that way too, but I really like your attitude. I'm going to need to adopt that more!
