This morning's post is a little different!  Next week starts the 2015 Spring Style Challenge with Alison at Get Your Pretty On.  Last Friday we got the shopping list and I am happy to say I had everything on the list but one item!!  Go Me and a huge thank you to the 2014 Challenges for helping me get everything thing I need for a great wardrobe.  (And to me for having camo pants, before camo pants were really in!  HA!)

The first outfit is Monday.  I'm very excited.  I am sad though too, because I'll be done with Spring Break and back at work so I know I'll be making substitutions. Last year it worked out that for over a week's worth of outfits I was home on Spring Break!

But speaking of last year's challenge,  today I thought I'd share some of my most favorite looks from that challenge.  Because I am still wearing them...when the weather cooperates!!  (Still super chilly here..)  And because Alison focuses on both staple pieces and trends during the challenges, I can!

Before these challenges, I probably would not have mixed stripes and leopard. Now I might be a bit of an over mixer!!  I just wore this outfit the other day!  These two are probably my most favorite of all the challenges! And the two I have re-worn the MOST!!

White before Labor Day??  Absolutely!!!  Throw that rule out the window!!  HA!!  This outfit was another fave.  I wore it during the Spring challenge and throughout the summer!!  And I went bold that day wearing my riding boots and white jeans!  I feel like this Spring is much colder than it was last year.  Like we are struggling to get out of the forties!!  I am hoping Spring comes during these next three weeks!

After 4 tries on the maxi skirt, this one is one that finally fit!!  Then I ended up getting the striped one too!  It's safe to say i was in maxis all late spring and summer!  Just so easy to throw on and go!! 

If you've been on the fence about joining a Style Challenge with Alison, just go for it!!  It's a lot of fun!  I have met so many awesome ladies and have such a great time mixing and matching!!  It's not too late!  Sign up here!  And don't forget to come on back next week when I link up with the Style Me Bloggers and showcase the first three outfits!!

Check out all the looks I've put together during the previous Style Challenges {here}!

Have a Happy Wednesday!!
