Two Teens And Their Mama: Spring Style Me Recap

Spring Style Me Recap


Another Style Me Challenge has come to a close.  Which means that sadly, I'm now in charge of dressing myself again.


But that's okay, because of all the challenges over the past year, I think I've learned the most from this one.  I'm finally figuring out my 40+ style.  Since I work from home, it's always going to be casual.  But by adding an accessory or jacket, I can take the look up a notch or two.  Even though most days nobody sees my outfits, I feel happier when I look better.  Which for me is the whole point when it comes to personal style.

Of all the looks during the 21 day challenge, this one is my favorite.  Even though I'm just wearing white jeans and a tshirt, the necklace, jacket and sandals pull everything together. It was very easy and super comfortable.


Be sure to check out the other Style Me Bloggers today.  Many of them are featuring ladies from the Facebook page who did the style challenge with us. It's an amazing group of women with great style!

  1. I always feel better taking things up a notch even when I know I probably won't be leaving the house except to walk the dog! The last outfit with the red jacket and graphic tee is my favorite too! Such a cute look!

  4. I have started to hear your voice in my head Lana. I never gave much thought to what I wore on days when I am home alone, but now sometimes I do! Love all these pictures, and coral is a really pretty color on you!

  7. I appreciate your comment that you think through this challenge you finally found your own style. I think each challenge has been transformative at some level for me. I totally agree that accessories, a jacket, the right pair of shoes can take a kind of ho-hum outfit and make it personal to you. Love the way you took a simple graphic tee to a professional level with your great blazer. Your outfits are always spot-on and so are your blog posts. Let's do lunch.

    1. Thanks Tamara. I definitely dress better in spring and summer. When it's cold all I want to do is wear big sweaters and jeans.

  15. I loved this challenge more than any of the others! I just wish I could get the looks to carry over in my mind when I get to the store. I walk in look around and am seriously at a loss! I can't seem to figure out how to put these looks together. I need you for a shopping buddy! I hope you have a wonderful Mother's Day!

    1. Shopping can definitely be overwhelming, because there's so much stuff! It's best to just start with a few mixable pieces. We will definitely go shopping together someday!

  18. I agree with you about the jeans and graphic tee. Something about a graphic tee just makes a look more put together. Adding a jacket does even more in the regard.
