Blonde vs. Brunette
Every Friday, we are going to do a fashion challenge. In these challenges, we will go to an affordable clothing store and pick out outfits. Each will highlight our personal style and fashion personality. We will include the store name and prices. We chose to visit a store instead of using our closet because so many times we have seen outfits and wished we could recreate them, only to find out they were purchased years ago.
The first month our challenges will just be to pick out an outfit for a specific event. This week, we shopped at Target for a day date winery look.
Kristin’s Pick – THE BLONDE
Long tulip color block dress – $29.99
T-strap tan sandal with metal and snakeskin detail – $19.99
I love all things coral (hence my bedroom)! I also love colorblocking and tulip bottom skirts/dresses. This dress combines all of that! When wearing brighter clothes, I tend to go simple with the shoes. But, the metal and snakeskin details make this shoe fun and unique. These details can then translate into your jewelry. I would wear a fun over-the-top pair of gold earrings and maybe some bangles or oversized gold watch to finish the look off.
Alex’s Pick – THE BRUNETTE
Floral romper – $22.99
Cropped jean jacket – $29.99
Red and tan cork wedges – $29.99
I think rompers are such a simple go-to look, but it it can be difficult to find one that fits you just right. You don’t want it giving you a wedgie all day, but if the length is too long, then that can look sloppy. I love this look because I would wear it for several different events or occasions. Winery, walking through D.C., shopping, lunch with friends. It would depend on my mood, but I think I’d stick with simple stud earrings and maybe jazz it up with a couple of funky rings.
