Challenge accepted

So it's a new month and with this whole shop my closet/no shop summer thing, I'm finding a lack of inspiration, even if I'm not necessarily blogging my outfits daily.  And I know I complained the last time I joined up with a style challenge that I also felt very limited by the pressures of doing something every day, but I am going to just not put that pressure on myself this time.  Yes, I have found not just one, but TWO style challenges on Instagram I am going to attempt to participate in and also a daily photo challenge. They all just sounded so fun that I had only one thing to say:

The first one is Style Me July with the IG user @hilaryrushford from www.deanstreetsociety.com.  The prompts for this one seem pretty simple, I think it will be pretty easy to keep up with.

The next one is Jumpin' July Style with IG user @curvygirlontherun from the blog Curvy Girl on The Run.  The prompts on this one also sound fun and fairly easy to do.  

If I can do both at once I will, if I can do one or the other I will and if I can't do either, that's ok too!  I just hope it will help me as I continue to shop my own closet as much as possible!

The third challenge is the WildInCahoots Instaparty with the girls from the Wild Ruffle blog and Cari Dugan Photography.  It's very simple - share a photo a day based on the prompt.  At the end, they are choosing someone to win a Visa giftcard!  You can't beat that!

I'm excited to participate in all three of these!  You can follow along on my Instagram - link below and at the right, my username is @BethieTheBoo.  It does seem Instagram is becoming the new Blog - so I'm looking forward to utilizing it more and more. Of course I'll still be blogging here too though!  So, hang on to your hats, here we go!

  10. Oh my gosh! Good for you for taking on so many style challenges! I've always had a really had time with those, but perhaps I should participate in one of these to help encourage me to use those items that fall out of rotation. Best of luck to you!
