Day 2 - style challenge

As you know I'm doing a style challenge for myself - buying nothing new but wearing what I own already. I have been waiting for today all week because the weather people said it would be hot and sunny - yeah right. I woke at 5.30am (no idea why) and the sun was no where to be seen. It's 8.56am and still it is yet to make an appearance. However, I sorted my outfit out yesterday (I do this often to save time in the morning) and so I was going to wear it come what may!


I bought the jeans in Tesco a couple of weeks ago - £7 in the sale! I love the faded light denim and they remind me of 70s jeans, except they are not flared, just a straight leg jean.  The yellow top is also a new Tesco purchase but is totally a Zara/Mango esque look - £12 currently available online. The shoes were New Look last year and I loved them - man alive they're high though for me. I was also reminded today why I don't like sling backs .. after 10 seconds of walking one of the straps always falls off and I end up shuffling along like a walking weirdo.


I couldn't decide if I should roll the jeans up or wear them down straight



I opted for rolled up in the end


This photo reminds me I need my hair cut - it's lank, it's thin, it's wispy and bleurgh. In my next life I'd better have good hair!

So, day 2 complete and all is going well (remind me of this in 100 days when I'm struggling!)

  1. Well done you! Day 2 done. So did the sun make an appearance eventually? It's positively hot here. I got the boys changed, got myself changed and found my boys dancing butt naked on the lawn (back garden thankfully) because it was lovely, sunny, warm and the sprinkler from next door was coming over the fence. Free entertainment - what more can you ask for?

    Now tell me - if you plan your outfits in advance, what happens if the weather throws you a total curveball? What do you do?

    1. Sun in and out - if it's out it's hot, when it's behind the clouds it's cold - you know!

      Thank goodness only the boys were dancing naked - I have visions of you now dancing on the lawn!!

      I am an anal weather watcher so I know in advance! I also mentally plan 1-3 outfits to fit in with the weather/mood. And then there are days I stand there, in front of the wardrobe at a TOTAL loss as to what to wear!!!!!!!

  4. Great shoes! You have lovely hair, I have half as much and it is thin and wispy rats tails.

  6. Brilliant ! I so need to do this! Maybe I can start today and see if I can get at least to the end of July? Love the yellow top. Darn there's no way I can't buy anything till August especially with a UK trip between now and then!
