Happy Friday, guys! It’s hard to believe the month is almost over, but I’m not complaining. Just sitting here waiting patiently for Fall… But while I wait, I thought I would share an update on my style challenge (read about it here) and also talk a little bit about the dress everyone needs in their closet, in my opinion!

Style Challenge Update
Well, I’m 24 days in and let me tell you, parts of this challenge has been so hard haha! The first two weeks weren’t bad at all and literally every outfit I wore was nothing but items I’d chosen for the challenge. I was actually having a lot of fun with it. After a couple of weeks, it started to get harder to come up with new/cute outfits, and to be honest I’m getting burnt out. But hey, I’m trying. I haven’t quit yet! This week I have added in a couple of different pieces from my closet just to mix things up a little. It has been surprisingly easy to survive without shopping though, and we’ve saved extra money, which was the whole point. I am learning to be thankful for what I do have, and I have a feeling I’ll be even more thankful when I go back to using my entire closet. I’m not sure if I’ll continue the challenge next month, at least not the whole 20 items, 30 outfits part. I will, however, try to refrain from shopping a little longer.
If you’re wanting to save a few bucks or contain your shopping habit, I highly recommend trying something like this. You don’t have to go by the exact guidelines I used, but try doing something similar. It will really make you appreciate the things you have a little more, and you’re guaranteed to save money!
The Dress Everyone Needs in Their Closet
Ok so if you’ve been following me for a minute, you can probably tell that I have an obsession with stripes. It’s true. So are you really surprised when I say you NEED a striped t-shirt dress in your life? They’re just so cute and easy to throw on with sandals, sneakers, boots, etc. I’ve had the one in these photos for a few years and I still love it. I don’t think a simple striped dress will ever go out of style. Not to mention they tend to be pretty budget friendly! I’ll be sure to link several different options at the end of this post! 🙂
I love to pair my striped dresses with a denim shirt or jacket to add a little bit of interest. They make a great layer in the cooler months, making it possible to wear your dress year round. If it’s not quite cool enough yet, I still like to tie my jacket around my waist or just drape it over my shoulders!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great weekend!
