April Style Challenge

I frequently see style challenges on Instagram and thought it would be fun to see if I could be creative enough to put together outfits to fit a daily theme.  I joined the April Style Confessions Challenge that is being hosted by Sequins and Style and Thats so Crystal.

Day 1 Pretty in Pastels
Off to a good start.  Wearing this bicycle tee reminds me of spring even though it's still cold out.

Sweater:  Target/Similar
Shirt:  Gap Target/Similar
Tank:  Old Navy
Day 2 Tickled Pink
This would be a great outfit if I had to go into work for a meeting. Swap out the jeans for white or gray pants.

Jacket:  Anthropologie Loft/Similar
Shirt:  Banana Republic Loft/Similar
Necklace: Tiffany

Day 3 Put a Bow on It
Luckily I had this polka dot shirt that ties in a bow at the neckline and this fun bow boyfriend cardigan.  I have not worn either in ages so I'm glad I pulled them out.

Sweater:  Anthropologie/Similar
Shirt:  Anthropologie/Similar
Corduroy's:  AG Stevie - Anthropologie/Similar

Day 4 Glitz & Glam
I tried to keep this casual with a denim shirt.  It's a great date night outfit.  It would also be cute with bare legs and these sandals.

Shirt:  Nordstrom
Skirt: JCrew
Bracelet:  Stella & Dot
Ring:  Stella & Dot Similar
Booties:  Vaneli/Similar

Day 5 Gung-ho for Gingham
This was the perfect Saturday outfit for running errands.  I was comfy but still looked put together.

Shirt:  Gap
Jeans:  Gap
Necklace:  Ily Couture
Shoes:  Sperry/Similar

Week one completed with items already in my closet and they were easy to put together. I probably would not have styled the pieces this way without the style challenge.  I hope that I can keep it up for the month!
