I Love Red?! Plus What Else I Learned After a 31-Day Style Challenge

It’s February and besides being the second month of the year {and Black Panther comes out in a few days!!!!}, it means we survived the very first Try It, Wear It, Love It challenge. The 31-day style adventure had one intention: to open your eyes to your personal sense of style. You might be thinking, why would I need an eye opener about my style. It’s mine, I know all about it. But you might be surprised by the amount of people who can’t define their personal style {like, what words would you use to describe how you dress?} and others just feel intimidated by the mere thought of stepping in to their closet.

2018 Style Challenge: Try It, Wear It, Love It

The new year is just a few days away and maybe you’ve made financial resolutions or have specific fitness goals. Those are great and absolutely necessary, but I also think it’s super important to have fashion resolutions as well. As superficial as “fashion” may feel, it’s a part of our lives. We all have to wear clothes and like it or not, we all judge each other based on appearances. Sucks, but true.

But there’s also so much power in your clothing. Your clothes and overall style speaks before you do. It tells your story or even conveys your mood without you having to say a word. And fashion resolutions are a way to define your personal style  and take an assessment as to whether your outward appearance is truly a reflection of who you are and how you feel.

That’s why I came up with the Try It, Wear It, Love It style challenge for January 2018. This is 31 days of trying something new, wearing it and {hopefully} loving it.

Thrifty Threads: Finding Your Effortlessly Chic Weekend Style Sometimes I just don’t feel like getting dressed. I love clothes but there are mornings when the act of putting thought into what I’m going to wear is just too much.

That’s the importance of a fashion uniform. And in particular, finding your weekend fashion uniform.
