Most days I am fortunate if I can wake up before the kids to shower and throw on the nearest jeans/sweats/t-shirt/sweater. I don't usually have the luxury of standing in a towel leisurely perusing my open closet (the towel would get pulled off in a minute by a little munchkin for sure), so most days there is not really a lot of thought put into my outfits. Hair gets pulled up into a quick, messy ponytail, usually wet, and more often than not, hardly combed. Occasionally the next day when I get to my shower, my hair is still damp from the day before. Yeah, gotta do something about the hair situation...
So, when I stumbled across a blog "challenge" called Closet Copy Cat I decided to give it a go. It's all about taking some inspiration photos and seeing what you can pull together from your closet to imitate the look. Since my kids are in pre-school every morning, I figured I would give it a go!
Here was the inspiration for this week - Button Up in Summer
Of course, being in the Southern Hemisphere it is technically winter, so I gave it a whirl and also came up with a "winterized" version. Some days it feels like summer, and others more like fall.
(aside - I'm a little surprised at how nervous/anxious I am about posting photos of myself on my blog)
But on to the challenge - a loose button up shirt, paired with shorts, cute sandals, an up-do, natural makeup and big earrings.
up-do's: a three bun knot, but no matter how much I tried, I could only make two buns. Ok, so I didn't really try that much, but I only have so much time! :)
(aside: sorry for the horrible photos - I tried to take them myself with my phone and a mirror.....)
Looking forward to next week's inspiration - goodness knows I have way too many clothes in my closet, and too few ideas of how to put them together!
