DAREcember

In the past I have done a few of the Style Challenges set by blogger Andrea at Fox In Flats, including the Arm Party dare.  

For the month of December Andrea issued her readers with another dare to put style back into the silly season - to wear something different for each day.  Here is the list;




I accepted the challenge!  I posted my pics daily on Instagram, along with many others that were playing along too.



Days 1-6


Days 7-12


Days 13-18


Days 19-24


Days 26-31


It was lots of fun looking at the list every morning and planning what to wear, I got plenty of ideas of new ways to wear things I already have in my wardrobe.  I also loved looking at everyone else's photos and seeing how different people wear different things.  Some days I could almost not be bothered but I am glad that I put in the effort, it's amazing how something so small as wearing bright red nail polish or some vintage rings from my Nanna added a little spark to my day.  

I think it's very important for everyone to put that extra bit of effort into themselves each day, it makes you feel great!  I have found this extra important now as a Mum - as a Mum it is hard to find time for yourself, and spending an extra 5 minutes in the morning adding a little bit of sparkle, colour or jewelry really makes all the difference.

Now that DAREcember is over I have been revisiting the list on days when I can't decide what to wear or when I need a little pick me up.

Are you stuck in a fashion rut?  Head on over to Fox In Flats blog and check out the style dares!

And have a wonderful weekend!  I have a great weekend planned including a baby shower, drinks with friends & spending time with my gorgeous little family.
