Day 26: Pick Your Style With Intention

Jacket: New Look, Dress: Blossom, Earrings: Wild Acre Designs, Bangle: Primark 

Day 26, Day 26!! Only 4 more days of 30 for 30 Clothes until I get to wear OTHER pretty things. I. Cannot. Wait.. I have enjoyed this so much but, let me tell you, my other clothes are seriously calling to me in their sexy-siren voices every time I open my wardrobe. Quite overwhelming to be spoken to in such a fashion so early in the morning. 

On Day 31, I am going to have a serious clothes showdown. I'll be changing my outfit every two minutes just because I CAN. Oh yesssssss. The powwweeeeeeerrrrrrrr....

But what this taking 30 items and remixing them every day for 30 days has forced me to do better is to think of the specific look I want for that day and make the pieces I pick out to work for me. Rather than wearing any old combination.

For example, today I love this Modern Country outfit. Taking this gorgeous prairie style maxi dress, so pretty and so country. But then pairing it with a boyfriend jacket and a big, chunky bangle takes it to the modern edge.
 Modern Country Clothes...I love 'em!

So that's the Pimp your Wardrobe challenge for today. Consciously decide on the look you want for the day, and THEN choose your clothes. Go on, see if you don't love it...

Have a WONDERFUL weekend.
See you Monday...or before if you've joined me

I love the idea of having a plan for your outfits each day. I don't think it takes much longer, but having a plan helps me execute better in every part of my life. You look darling in that outfit, by the way. Good on ya :)!

Happy weekend,
gorgeous girl! I
am about to step
away from my computer
and completely clean
out my closet. I've
wanted to do this
for nearly a year.
Can't wait to stream-
line it all and YES,
be more conscious
about each day's LOOK.

You are a doll.

xx Suzanne

Hi Sarah,
You look adorable as always. Love that cute prarie dress and the jacket looks great paired together with it.
Your hairdo was a perfect combo too,
and like your cute earrings as well.

Wow, you are gonna have some fun in

This has been a fun idea and shows a lot of great creativity on your part, nice way to make the pregnancy go quicker too.

Thanks for coming by hon, and yea,
we are pretty proud of our 42 years together...............

Have a lovely Sunday,
Blessings, Nellie

This is one of my favorites so far. I love modern country clothes, too. Love the jacket paired with the dress.


Emmett Katherine said...

this is such a pretty dress, love the ruffle detailing at the bottom :)

Seaweed and Raine said...

THAT dress is great. I have a maxi that I like to wear with a vintage '70's denim short waisted jacket (complete with a HUGE collar).
I've culled a few things from my wardrobe lately... Still working on it all. :)
Guy takes great photos.
Hope you weekend was a good one. :)
