And welcome to the final post in my May Style Challenge! I wanted to use this month to save money and prove to myself (and hopefully others as well!) that I could be creative and use the clothes I already own to create a number of different ensembles.
To be honest it was not a completely noble challenge. While yes, I wanted to take on this challenge to help, inspire, and save money. I also put money aside each week so that I could have a small stash to use for a small shopping spree I treat myself to each year on my birthday -which is in two weeks! It is the one time I really splurge.
But even still I am still proud of myself for completing this challenge! And I hope it was helpful for any/everyone who read! In that spirit today I decided I wanted to restyle some of my favorite pieces. I decided on the beach-y printed, asymmetrical hem skirt and the New York and Company wrap vest.
The skirt -from Target, the Mossimo brand- is one of my all time favorite skirts. It has a very flirty feel and unique design, the print is perfect for summer, however I have found it a little difficult to style. So, true to my rule, I wanted to find three ways to wear it. I think I have figured them out. The first was paired with a crop top, and this is my second pairing. I like how the wrap vest -pictured tied in the back and front- adds an addition/unexpected shape to the ensemble.
Added bonus, I wound up creating two different looks by the way I tied the vest. My sister said she liked it tied in the front better, and I liked it a lot as well, but it photographed better tied in the back.
I accessorized lightly with Versona jewelry and my highly adored Mossimo heels. =)
Thanks for reading! I hope you enjoyed the May Style Challenge! And enjoy the rest of your weekend!
