The WIWT Challenge, Part 1...


On Tuesday, WIWT sent a lovely email with a week long summer style challenge that they were running, starting the following day (!!!) for a week...;





Now, I like to plan my outfits and dropping this on me just into the work week threw me (yes, it's just fun, yes, I should chill my boots a bit), I wasn't quite 'head between the knees', more deep in thought mentally filing through my wardrobe...I definitely lost about half an hour to this throughout the course of the evening.. "Flowers, do I have anything with flowers..?"... The carefully chosen themes echo the latest trends (gulp) so it was time to up end the wardrobe once again *cue clothes flying at 45 degree angle, at speed*...

I started by turning to the besties who are also involved in WIWT and insisted that if I was doing this then they had to too..I bring you our Day 1-5...(warts 'n' all...)..;

Day 1 - Stripes...

Day 4 - 60's...

Me;
This trend did have me baffled, I even googled images and didn't get much on the inspiration front...It was only when I was having a spontaneous wardrobe tidy yesterday that, the light bulb went on...TaDa!!



I have gotta' say, this is absolutely my favourite look of mine so far... I really didn't know I'd suit a beehive for starters, let alone, hair accessories!!

Lil;



Lil's outfit is totally based on the Clinique palette..

Jeans - Forever 21
Clutch - Vintage
Sunglasses - Ray Ban (they aren't broken, they are the 'folding' ones, bought in Vegas..)


I'm actually really enjoying the challenge now...It has really made me think about what I have in my wardrobe and how to work it differently! 

Lastly, I know it's totally British to talk about the weather but, JESUS!!! It's bloody mid-May, I'm on my sofa in joggers, hoody, fluffy socks and a fleece throw...(it's not all Prada you know..) anyhoooo, a massive HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my very special friend, 'Mrs M'!! 

Join me for the final 2 days of the WIWT outfits on Tuesday.

In the meantime, Andrea's blog is here and Lil's here.
