Closet full of clothes, yet nothing to wear?
Feeling totally uninspired by what’s staring back at you everyday?
Each month fabulous fashion bloggers of the world, offer up #StyleChallenges on Instagram. This marks the third month I elected to participate in a few of these challenges. For my April Outfits click HERE, for May HERE.
When I started all this “Style Challenge” business, I felt a bit out of my comfort zone, getting dressed and posting an fun outfit every day, but I gave it a try. I sought out challenges that I thought fit my profile of a working mom who loves fashion, style, color and accessories. I have discovered 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 June.
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!
#40PlusStyle on Instagram, though not a style challenge, offers great daily inspiration!
This week on 40+ Style, you can find me, along with a few other fashionable ladies in this weeks edition of “What You Wore” on 40+ Style HERE and if you missed it, catch my interview with Syliva of 40+ Style HERE on how to mix bohemian with classic style
Here’s a look at what I wore, during the month of June

Here are the Style Challenges I will be participating in for June. Jump in and participate if you like! Some even offer prizes to boot! But, 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!

Summer Sale Alerts!
Every retailer is beginning to clear inventory, now is a great time to shop the sales!
This past weekend I was at Calypso St. Barth (pricey, but fab resort wear!). They have a great sale going on if this is your thing; take an additional 60% off already marked down items
I tried these white sandals on at the store – available in a really pretty blue as well as white, and with the additional 60% off the $129.00 sale price, are a real deal! These ran true to size for me – they fit me like Jack Rogers sandals do. This blue tie dye skirt ran true to size, maybe even a tad small. Would be cute layered with a long fitted tank dress, but also comes with a full under-slip. I loved this white ruffle sundress, but couldn’t get it to fit right in the shoulders – its so summery and carefree. A bit shear, needs an underpinning – true to size. There is still a great sale selection available online, click HERE for Calypso St. Barth
Up to 50% off Sale over at Boden starts today, July 1
