January 2013 Fashion Challenge Check-In

Hey guys and dolls!  As the month ends (or, ended yesterday) I wanted to check in to see how everyone did with their January 2013 Fashion Challenge.  Earlier this month, everyone was tasked to: “Rock winter’s hottest sweaters and snap a pic of yourself wearing it.  If you don’t own one, your challenge is to go out and get one!”

So?  How did you do?  Personally, I embraced this challenge because the weather has been all over the place – 60 degrees one day and 0 the next!  Below are some of my favorite looks from the challenge.

sweater challenge 1

In the look above, I’m actually rocking a sweater of my dad’s from lord knows when!  The sweater was a bit bulky, so I grabbed a Kiyonna belt to give myself some shape.  Skinny jeans and matching boots topped off the look. When people asked me where I got the sweater I loved telling them it was “vintage!”

I told you guys when we started this challenge that I was obsessed with this sweater from Joe Fresh!  I adore this mustard chain link sweater.  This was a casual Sunday, so I threw on a mustard t-shirt under the sweater and my fave (they’re featured twice in this post!) toffee flat boots.

This Michael by Michael Kors is one of my favorites.  It’s a pure white, super comfy (and warm) knit with a cowl neck.  I seriously lounge around in this sweater all the tie.  On this particular day I threw on some skinny jeans from Old Navy and my favorite nautical inspired flats.  The outfit was effortless so I kept the face clean as well.  No makeup? No problem!

So, how did you guys do with the challenge this month?  Send YCS your pics and outfit details.  I’m sure everyone is dying to see what you wore this month!

Be on the look out for February’s Fashion Challenge next week!

Your Chic is Showing,
