Fashion Friday: Three Outfits from the Fall Style Challenge


Hello everyone, it's finally the end of the work week and we are heading into the Canadian Thanksgiving Weekend.  I am super pumped to get away to the lake  and also to get together with family friends for a turkey dinner.


Today I am sharing three outfits that I have complied and made my own over the first couple of weeks of the Get Your Pretty On Fall 2017 Style Challenge.  I've shared my recaps before, here, here, and here.  If your are interested in joining one of the current style challenges, check out the links at the end of this post.  

Onto to three simple outfits you can re-create for your own lifestyle and with what's in your closet.  Enjoy!



Prompt #1:  Moto Jacket, White Tee, Olive Jeans, Printed Scarf & Slip on Sneakers


My Take:  Work Wear Culottes


I know, I know.  You are thinking, "you go this out of that prompt?!?"  Here is the deal, I don't have olive jeans, well I didn't at the time but do now.  I absolutely adore these culottes that I picked up in London last year and subbed them in for the olive pants.   I stuck to the white tee portion and printed scarf, but added a denim jacket with some heels for work. 


Let's talk culottes! To be honest I had been crushing on culottes forever but I never thought they would work on my short body, I am only 5'4".  Anyway, these do and what I feel is the trick for them is that they are high-waisted, making my lower body appear longer and also my waist smaller, which it's not as a result of over-indulging in pretzels dipped in Nutella.  


Here are a couple of culotte options from Modcloth to check out, here and here.




Prompt #2:  Gray Sweatshirt, Gray Jeans, Statement Necklace & Velvet Shoes


My take: Weekend Style


I was actually able to wear a casual look because it was finally the weekend.  I always wear jeans on the weekend because it's the only time I am really allowed to.  I just love this look.  It's casual, comfortable and stylish.  I especially love my new purse from H & M and  the deep, wine color of it (it's sold out in this color but they do have It in black here).  Oh, and did I mention these cute, lace up flats were only $11 at Walmart?!?



Prompt #3:  Gray Sweatshirt, Grayed Hem Jeans, Printed Scarf and Slip on Sneakers


My take:  From Office to Casual Mom


My favorite part of this outfit is that I got to do both a work look and casual look in one day.  I basically flipped the prompt for the office and had a TON of compliments on it; and to think that chambray shirt was on my "maybe"  pile.  Instead of the printed scarf I added some leopard print to my feet and classy pearls for the office.


For running the kids to gymnastics that evening I paired up this cute, ruffled tee from H & M  and I styled it with casual jeans, sneakers and a printed scarf.

  1. That chambray top went perfectly with the grey top! I love your take on that prompt!

    1. Thanks lovely lady. I was happy how it came together. Thankfully I had not donated the top yet and now it's safely back in my closet.

  2. Happy Thanksgiving! You did a great job making the outfits your own. Love the culottes on you!

    1. Thank you so much Lana. Its always a bit tricky styling the prompts for work but also kind of fun. 😊

  3. Love the weekend style look. My kind of comfy, casual outfit

    1. Thanks Michelle. Me too, if only everyday was a weekend day. 😊

  4. Love all of these cute looks! Especially the ones with cute cozy scarfs! They are my favorite accessory!


    1. I love them too. Nothing like getting warm and cozy with a scarf. I just love wrapping a blanket scarf around me.

  5. I think you rocked all three looks!

    Le Stylo Rouge

  6. All of these outfits are so perfect for fall! I love that each of them can be worn a variety of different ways for warm or cold weather. Also, I am always a fan of the olive pants trend. I can't wait to see all the outfits to come from you this season!
    Thank you for linking up this week!

    1. Thanks so much Sheree. I really do want women to feel that they can look/feel good regardless of what their days entail and regardless of the season, they all deserve that. Thanks so much for hosting.
