#AprilsAutumnChallenge - Round Up Part 1

March 19, 2015

I've been participating in another style challenge this month over on Insta, where I can be found and followed at @beth_almostposh if you're interested.

This one is run by April Nicoll and there is a $100 Westfield voucher up for grabs which is quite exciting.

My RL friends Stacie (@indigo_daydream) and Jen (@lady_lambkin) are also playing along which gives added dimension and fun to the challenge, especially because Stacie and I work together and thus have been able to take each other's photos on my working days, while Jen is brand new to Insta but has already got significant game. Finding cool locations around Adelaide has been fun and it's good to get some direction from a photographer that understands the importance of a fierce shot, rather than a bored husband or endless failed selfie bursts on a timer.

Annoyingly, we missed the first three days, but here are a selection of my entries so far . . .

Day 5: 50 Shades of . . . Lipstick
MAC Pro Longwear Lip Glass in "Maleficent"
Day 6: Wear sequins and sparkles
This was the best I could do for a slobby day in a country town
Style & Co sequinned flats
Day 8: Wear your fave jeans
My pre-preg dark skinnies from Harris Scarfe, I love these so!
Day 10: Try a new hairstyle
Weeellll . . . more like an accessory but alright!
And excuse to wear my new Australis Velourlips 
matte lip cream in Shang-Hi!
Day 12: Wear shoes that aren't black
Easy! Pink hi-top Converse Chuck Taylors
Day 13: Try some pattern-on-pattern
It's not immediately obvious but these are polkadot pants (from Kmart).
Plus stripy shoes (TEMT) and a Best & Less tee under Cotton On blazer
Day 16: Wear some animal print
Anne Klein cheetah-print dress,
black calfskin vintage handbag (made in Sydney)
Day 18: Let's try something edgy
Well, this is about as edgy as it gets when you're Almost Posh
TEMT dress and Lee Cooper ankle boots
Day 19: Impress for Less
This is pretty much my life's motto, as you would know
so I decided to go all Savers for this outfit
Sunglasses - $1.99 (stolen from my sister who had bought them at Savers),
Oasis bedazzled top - $9.99
Review pants (!!!) $9.99 and Joanne Mercer sparkly flats, $9.99
Head to toe for $30.

Looking forward to turning out more looks for the rest of the challenge and excited about a little something I have in the works which you should hear about any minute . . .

  1. I like how you've gone hunting for different backdrops for each pic! :) Glad you are having fun with the challenge. I did two challenges back to back in December and January and I'm a bit played out on them. It was good having some guidance for what to wear each day, but it's nice to be able to open up my wardrobe and just pick something I 'feel' like wearing for a change :)

    1. Haha, thanks Mica, working in the city does have some advantages! It is definitely hard work, especially when the prompts are quite specific and you have exactly zero of whatever it may be.

  2. Looks like you are having a lot of fun with this challenge. I always start out great and with full intentions on challenges like this but lose momentum soon after. Looking forward to casing your efforts on Instagram.

    1. It gets you out of the fallback "comfort" outfits - that's for sure! I admit I have spent a few nights lying awake wondering what to wear!
