I’m going to start off this entire post with a round of applause. Week 1, Everyone! WEEK 1! You guys hit the dang ground running on this first week of challenges! I never had any doubts that some of these challenges were child’s play for you guys. Who among us hasn’t worn athleisure out of the house with reckless abandon? Check out what all the other TME readers have been wearing for the style challenges by clicking through the galleries down below (so, so good)!
February TME Reader Style Challenge Week 1
We have a whole new week ready to go and are so excited to see what ya’ll pull from your closets! Monday’s challenge is to style a white button-down! Are you keeping it casual or fancying yours up? Keep tagging @themomedit on Instagram and be sure to use the hashtag #TMEStyleChallenge to make sure we see your submissions! Congrats to Ms. Kim (aka April aka @mskim_says) for being the winner this week! We’ll be in touch!
Day 1: Layer a House Dress
Ahh the house dress. The perfect item to grab when I want to flounce around the house like I’m an 18th-century maiden waiting for mother and papa to come home from the evening’s winter festivities. Just me? This challenge was made a bit harder when almost 25 inches of snow piled up outside. It went from “style a house dress” to “make a house dress work when it’s cold AF in the house”.
Day 2: Mix Prints
As someone whose closet is currently a LOT of black tees and jeans…print is way out of my wheelhouse. But I remembered our recent interview with print-mixing queen Chinny from Chiniluv and dove over there to get some quick inspo.
Day 3: Channel Moira Rose
THE FAVORITE DAY. Oh. My. Gosh. The amount of Moira Rose energy filling the #TMEStyleChallenge tag that day was beautiful. To pull a quote directly from our Instagram, you came at this one with the “vigor of a wartime radio operator”!
Day 4: Wear a Button Down as a Jacket
Sometimes it’s all about the layers. *insert intense staring contest with my closet to determine how many layers of black I can manage for the day* I feel like we all had a collective “aha!” moment when our eyes landed on a plaid button down. What do you folks think of this shacket trend? It’s definitely a fun way to add a masculine touch to a feminine look while also adding a bit of warmth.
Day 5: Wear Workout Gear as a Real Outfit
We have been informed that the new term for workout gear that goes from the gym to errands to work is…. athflow. Not….entirely sure how to feel about that term. BUT this challenge made for a very comfortable Friday!
Day 6: Wear Something Colorful
Here comes the sun do do doo doo! This Saturday was bright and colorful in our IG feed all thanks to you guys! Saw some struggle posts from peeps who really channel the dark colors all year long but managed to bust out a bright pink or yellow just for the day. I just want you to know I was right there with you!
Day 7: Wear Giant Earrings
Bring on the glam bam thank you ma’am for our Sunday of GIANT earrings. There is not enough time in the day to not be big and bold every now and then (especially on Super Bowl Sunday)! Sometimes we just need to make a statement without ever having to open our mouths.
Week 1 came and went, and now we’re in Week 2. I don’t know about you guys, but I’m looking forward to February 12th. Keep tagging @themomedit and using the hashtag #TMEStyleChallenge each day to make sure we see your entry! Another winner will be chosen next week to win a $50 gift card (chosen at random).
