what I wore - fall style challenge week #1

Wednesday, October 15, 2014

I have been trying to be diligent about taking daily outfit pics lately. As annoying as Mr. B may find it, it's helpful for me to see what looks good (or not so much) for future reference. PLUS, it makes it easy to share with all of you!

The Fall Style Challenge is underway (it started Monday) and even though only the first two pics are 'challenge outfits', the majority of the pieces are part of the challenge (AND I already had a bunch of them already in my closet!) 

Some of the challenge pieces this go around are definitely challenging for me. See those booties with rolled up jeans?? Ya, I'm still not sure if I love the look on me but apparently it's on trend. Sometimes, when I try and wear something trendy, I end up feeling silly BUT I'm comforted knowing I'm not the only one thrown out of my comfort zone.

What's your fav look of the week? Any fall trends you're loving or terrified of?

Linking up with some fellow challengers for the next few weeks. Make sure you visit their links below to see how they've interpreted the outfits (I think you'll be surprised how different we all look!)

  1. I think the trick to rolled up jeans and booties is to keep the bootie an ankle boot. I've seen some higher booties where there is no way id roll my pants that high!!!

  7. I love your day two look. Kudos for getting your pictures taken. (My husband grumbles when he has to take photos and the weather hasn't been the best.) I struggle with rolled jeans and short booties - it never looks as effortless on me, as it does on others. This is my first style challenge - looking forward to the upcoming looks.

  10. Your and colored jeans, perfection :) Love your scarf too, I think my favorite outfit is the one with the leather jacket. Also I think the rolled jeans look good on you, perhaps it's the shirt that is throwing you off? I don't see you as a black and white striped kind of gal, so maybe change out the shirt and you'll feel different? Cause the picture with the rolled grey jeans looks great!
