Day 17: Alternative- Break a Rule

Today's original prompt was to take something out of your repair pile, repair it, and wear it.  But I don't really have a repair pile, because I'm not very crafty or good at fixing things.  So Kayla's alternative was to break a fashion rule.  I know this rule doesn't really apply anymore, but I wore two different patterns.

top- Express; cardi-Gap; skirt- Loft; shoes- Target; necklace-Tiffany & Co.

I know that most fashion rules these days are outdated and get challenged daily.  That's why I wasn't sure if this would count as "breaking a fashion rule."  But this would usually be outside of my comfort zone.  Especially mixing the taupe on the skirt, gray on the shirt, pink cardi, and teal shoes!!!  But that is what this blog and 21 day challenge are for right?! To challenge myself. 
I found several pairs of blue jean shorts at Target today.  They were on clearance for $8.  I have a few Target Q' for $5 off women's denim.  I'm super excited, because I am going back to get a few pairs of $3 shorts!  Tomorrow is the start of a new month, so I'm going to buy something dammit!  I think I even said I would extend this challenge until the end of the 21 day challenge.  But come on people, $3 blue jean shorts!  I can't pass it up.  Plus, the Q's expire on Friday.  I still have a good while of smoldering hot weather here in Louisiana. 
Check out the Kayla & the other participants.


  1. Love the skirt and the shoes! I forgot that I have those target q's too...I should have been checking for shorts when I went there yesterday, thanks for the tip!

  2. I had one of those coupons and got a pair of jeans for TWO DOLLARS! I freaking love Target.

  3. Love the stripes with the ruffle.

  4. This is great! And totally counts as breaking a fashion rule.
