December Holiday Instagram Style Challenge

Bettys, my London bags are packed & tomorrow I'll be sipping a glass of chardonnay & praying I can sleep on the flight from JFK to Heathrow. In thinking about how to pack for extended travel I gave myself a little challenge: Never wear the same thing twice ... the same way.

You see, I didn't pack 41 different tops for my 41 days abroad. I packed 9. And 9 sweaters. 3 skirts. Oodles of accessories. So my challenge to myself is to always try to pair a top with a different layer, or bottom, or accessory.

No one should have a closet large enought to wear a different thing everyday! But we tend to pair the same things together & then get tired of our wardrobes. So I decided December should be a #StyleMe month to encourage you to join me! {What is #StyleMe? Read more here.}

This is also perfectly timed as we all have a few holiday-appropo outfits. Thankfully there are different people at your work party than your college friends party, so you can re-wear them throughout the season. As you should! No one needs a dozen holiday jumpers! {That's British for "reindeer sweater".} So wear them again, Instagram them again ... just paired with something different. Show us your showman cardigan three days! Just switch up your turtleneck for a button-down or your brown boots for black tights & booties.

Here's to 31 Days of Holiday Style & never wearing the same thing twice ... the same way!

P.S. Have you finished your Christmas Wish List? How about your holiday shopping?

Don't forget about asking for or giving the gift of creating providence in 2013 with a style session! Whether it's to celebrate a promotion, gift a busy mom some "you time" or show someone you believe they're going to be a superstar, experiences always trump things when it comes to making someone's life a little richer. I'm giddy to know we've already made it onto so many Wish Lists & under various trees this season! Maybe yours, but I'll never tell ...

To order a Dean Street Society Gift Certificate just email Hilary@DeanStreetSociety.com {or ask your loved one to email me} & we'll get you a design that's just right for your special someone!
