Week 2: Autumn Style Challenge with April Nicoll Stylist #aprilsautumnchallenge

I’ve been “challenging” myself in the fashion stakes this month with the assistance of a good old Instagram style challenge thanks to the gorgeous April Nicoll, Stylist. Week one was filled with shades of lipstick, bright pops of colour and midi skirt Monday (you can see more here), but week two brought even more style with the addition of prompts pattern on pattern, manicures and more. Take my advice ladies (and gents), your wardrobe is your own personal shopping centre. You just need to find new and creative ways to pair your items – you might just surprise yourself!

I will admit I struggled a lot with the pink prompt this week. I’m a girly girl, but I’ve never been personally partial to wearing pink. My desk and bedroom are decorated with girly pink pieces in all different shades but I don’t feel confident wearing the lovely colour. I envy those who can! I did receive a few comments on the pink blouse I chose for the challenge, but I decided it was time for that particular top to be recycled and sent to the op shop! Hopefully someone else will love it!

A few things I’ve learnt this week from the challenge:

  • I can’t do nail polish. It survived a day!
  • Donating clothes you no longer wear feels great!
  • Donut buns are perfect for bad hair days! 

What have you learnt about your personal style as of late?
