21 Day Challenge: Day Eight

Whew!   I made through week one of the 21 day challenge in one piece...and I must say, with much more fashion sense than before I began on this journey.  Read more about the 21 day challenge by clicking on the orange button on the sidebar.

Today's challenge was super exciting to me; "Mix fancy and casual".  Ever since Sarah Jessica Parker showed herself in the outfit below, I've been inspired. 

Although I don't quite have the courage to pull off a cotton t-shirt over a ball gown, I really love the thought of mixing the fancy with the casual.  Here's to you, S.J.P!

I paired an old bridesmaid dress from David's Bridal that I wore in 2009 with a knitted sweater from H&M.  The boots are a long story, and the belt was borrowed from the man-of-the-house.

I really love this outfit and will totally wear it again this fall!  I just want to hug Kayla for coming up with this challenge and encouraging me to spread my fashion wings.


  1. Oh my goodness, that looks AWESOME. What a lovely sweater! It looks like it could have a lot of great uses.

  2. This is amazing! I felt like most people didn't really get this challenge but you nailed it. A definite fav from the day, for sure!
