I've compiled the last 15 challenges here to show you my take on them. Most of these weren't really challenges, per se, because my style has always been quite eclectic. If I like something, I do it. It just happens to be all over the place.
This was new for me, actually. But I conquered it. I'm still a little weirded out that there was a sock in my hair, though.
CAT EYES & TWIST
Cat eyes are my go-to liner, but this braiding business was a bit frustrating. After my fingers finally understood what to do, I was kind of obsessed with braiding my hair in all sorts of ways.
This was definitely one of my favorites.
Yeah, I tend to go a little overboard. I look like a Spring garden just exploded on me. I used the caption that I sometimes pretend I'm in an Urban Outfitters ad. Don't you sometimes?
STRIPES & SPECS
Technically, chevron stripes. Those high-waisted jumpers make my boobs look huge. Sorry, just being real. I like this illusion.
I'm definitely a headscarf kind of girl. Even in 100 degree weather. I just love not having to deal with my hair most days. I'm also a hat girl. So, you know... I'm lazy.
BLACK & WHITE
B&W is so versatile in any style. I immediately thought of this shirt I thrifted about a year ago and wanted to tackle the challenge with a 90's vibe. Obsessed with leather skirts this season, btw.
SWEET LACE & BRIGHTS
I think the general idea of "sweet lace" is if it's white or cream colored. I decided to go with my black lace shorts because well.. I'm a rebel. Hah. But really, I don't wear these shorts too often so I wanted to take it out of retirement for the day.
This was the night I had just experimented with dip-dyeing my hair. I liked it but was wanting a brighter pink. It faded nicely, though. I think bangles were included in this challenge too but my wrists are the size of an Ethiopian child's, so I don't usually wear them. & this high pony reminds me of Madonna...
In honor of breast cancer awareness. Notice the fade from the dip-dye in my hair. That was my favorite shade. Doubly pink! Yeah!
TOPBUTTONS & BRIGHT LIPS
Easy-peasy. If I can button up a collar, I usually will.
Oh, yes. Plaid. My husband's favorite color. ;)
MIDDLE PART & STATEMENT JEWELRY
I was out of town during this challenge and packed light. So of course to stay in the game, as I was out shopping, I tried on some necklaces for a photo op. Do what ya gotta do. Regretting not buying that necklace, btw.
BOOTS & BLAZERS
Just plain comfy. Welcoming tights into a new (colder) season.
The latest in the challenge was to mix prints, which is something I do very often for interest in my outfits. Do you see that bird's nest of a pomp? Yeah, I'm starting to do that often too ever since I learned how for the fashion show last month. Can't help it.
I hope this makes you want to join in! It's really fun and I'm so glad Lindsey and Lauren came up with these great challenges to connect women everywhere around the world. You can read more on how it all started, their daily finds, and the many countries Coast to Coast Challenge have reached at their (fairly new) blog here.
