Closet full of clothes yet nothing to wear?
Feeling totally uninspired by what is staring back at you?
Each month fabulous fashion bloggers of the world offer up #StyleChallenges on Instagram. This past month I decided to participate in a few of these challenges. This was a bit out of my comfort zone, getting dressed and posting an fun outfit every day, but I was willing to give it a try. I sought out challenges that I thought fit my profile of a working mom who loves fashion, style, color and accessories. My initial thought was that this would be a good avenue to spread the word about happenings on AskSuzanneBell, but it was so much more. There is a world of creative women which I now follow, who inspire me on a daily basis with their fun outfits, ideas and fashion. Having a theme for each day forced me to dig into my closet and work with items I owned to create fun new outfits – that was the best part!
At the beginning of each month, the person hosting the challenge posts a list with 30 days of outfit ideas, from there it is up to you to come up with your outfit, and post it to the style challenge hashtag on Instagram. Here is an example from April.
What I love is that you do not have to participate to be inspired – you can follow along with an endless world of outfit ideas at your fingertips posted by real people just trying to get up and look stylish each day!
Since I took the time to take the photos, I thought I would share with you my favorite looks from April

Here are the Style Challenges I will be participating in for May. Jump and participate if you like! Some even offer prizes to boot! But even if you aren’t up for the whole thing, you can print this collage or save it on your phone, then challenge yourself to remix what you have, perhaps try a few new ideas along the way! Fashion should be fun, enjoy the journey!

So cool to document and show what you have been wearing in the challenges. Really shows you how you can shop from your own closet and there are always ideas, we just all need a little inspiration. Love this post!
Thanks Melissa! I love the challenges, I just take the list into my closet each day and am often amazed what I find in there! Funny how a word or two to get you thinking in the morning can make getting dressed so much easier! I am looking forward to seeing what you come up with this month as well! BTW, loved your jumpsuit on the blog today, fab!!! XOXO
