Week One | Summer GYPO Style Challenge


TGIF pretties!  Over in Summer GYPO Style Challenge land we are finishing out our first full week of outfits.  One of my favorite parts of the challenge is seeing each challenger’s spin on the daily outfit.  If you’re not familiar with how the style challenge works, each participant is given a shopping list of outfit essentials.  After they have the pieces in place, I give them 21 days worth of daily outfits created from them.  Modifications and substitutions are A-OK and actually highly encouraged!

The two comments I’ve heard the most during this first week are:

1.  It’s SO nice not having to think about what I’m wearing every day.

2.  I’m way out of my comfort zone…and it feels good!

Continuing in the tradition of the Spring GYPO Style Challenge, I’ll be sharing some of my favorite looks from each of the three weeks of the summer outfits.

Here are my week one outfit picks.

On day three of the challenge, we styled a red/white striped shirt with khaki shorts, a long necklace and metallic sandals.

Day four consisted of printed shorts with a bright tank, long necklace, a fedora and wedges.
