Two Teens And Their Mama: Fall Style Challenge - Week 1

Fall Style Challenge - Week 1


Hooray, hooray - it's time for the Fall Style Me Pretty Challenge.  This is very good news for two reasons.  First, I don't have to figure out what to wear, since Alison sends me an email every night with the next day's outfit - it's like having a virtual stylist.  Plus, the weather has definitely turned fall-ish here, so I'm actually able to wear the pieces in the challenge.

Over the next few weeks I'll show some of the outfits Alison has put together.  This was day two, and I'm loving my new military jacket.  I was a little worried about wearing brown boots with black jeans, but I listened to Alison, and she was right -  I think it looks pretty good.

On day one she had us pair boyfriend jeans with booties.  This was definitely outside my comfort zone, but I decided to go for it and I got several compliments on the look.



During the next three weeks I'll be linking up with these lovely ladies who are doing the Challenge with me.  Be sure to check out their blogs to see how they styled Alison's looks. Thank you to Deena for the beautiful graphic - she is so talented!

  2. I can't decide which of these two outfits I like best - they both look great!
    I got up and threw on the same comfy clothes as yesterday, so I could get a hot breakfast made for my son before he left to take the PSAT. Not an every morning occurrence, but I thought he should be well fueled!
    Now though, you have motivated me to upgrade my outfit! :)

  12. Love the pink sweater on you. and the plaid scarf, black jeans and brown boots looks great. I was in the same camp as you, but I've been told otherwise that you can in fact wear brown and black...who knew!

  17. Great outfits, friend. I especially like the distressed jeans. I was thinking I was too old for them but they really look fantastic on you {and I'm older than you} so I think I might get some and see if I can pull it off. You encourage me!

    1. Thanks Carrie. Honestly, you would look great in anything. I was a little unsure about the distressed jeans too, but I got them for such a good price, I decided to give it a try.

  18. I love these challenges for the reasons you mentioned - a virtual stylist and a push to try a few on trend items. I was skeptical about the booties but am loving them. You look great!

  19. Ooh, I like both! The pink sweater is striking.
    I also love military jackets and even after I discovered that I'm a "winter" and earth tones look terrible on me, I never threw away my army green jackets. They bring out my green eyes!

  28. Both outfits look great, Lana. Since I began blogging my eyes have been opened to trends and styles I would have never even been aware of and it's fun trying them. I now love wearing shades of brown with black.
    Have a lovely week. :)

  30. I know it probably isn't your goal to be mistaken for a teenager, but it could happen in this outfit. Just a very sophisticated on. I always like this vibe on just about any women ... casual and polished at the same time. Especially on you. Your legs go on forever and you look so good. Excellent.
