Summer Style File 14 day challenge with Kimba Likes and She Writes

Wow, what a lot of fun our Summer Style File 14 day style challenge was! Sarah from She Writes and I were so pleased to see so many new faces joining us.

The challenge has ended but Summer Style File is still going strong.  The idea is to build a Style File of summer style looks by everyday women.  Just click on the hashtag and check out some fabulous looks!

We will be back with another 14 day style challenge in March for Autumn Style File.

Here’s my challenge outfits, with bonus Fox in Flats Darecember too!

short story

I wore Country Road chambray shorts with a Seed hairband and Little Tienda embroidered top.  Darecember’s prompt was relaxed.  Nailed it!

maxi impact

This gorgeous Little Party Dress maxi dress was perfect for Summer Style File.  Failed Darecember because I wasn’t flashing my buns and my hair is way too short!

team stripes

Gorgeous kindly gifted Philosophy graphic top for Summer Style File, teamed with fab Kmart broderie anglaise shorts, and Ruby Olive bangles for Darecember arm candy.

Kimba Likes wearing pompoms for Summer Style File 14 day style challenge

pom poms and tassels

My City Chic bodycon tank dress nailed Black Out for Darecember, and my uber pretty old school Bohemian Traders kimono and kindly gifted pom pom earrings from Style Fast were perfect for pom poms.  Later, I switched to a tasselled kimono kindly gifted by Lillianna Plus, to update my outfit for a casual dinner with friends.

white out

Adidas Superstars and the white version of my awesome Kmart broderie anglaise shorts for Summer Style File.  I had planned to wear a divine Philosophy Australia blouse but I spilt my breakfast all over it.  I switched to a billowy Country Road peasant blouse for Darecember’s prompt of swishy.

Kimba Likes wearing leopard for Summer Style File 14 day style challenge

leopard love

So much love for my Bohemian Traders maxi dress.  Worked back with a Gorman mustard patent leather belt, lace bolero from Big W and silk leopard scarf worn as a hairbow.

Darecember’s prompt of killer heels? Sorry, no.  Heels with my joint issues? Literally a killer! So I wore my favourite ever summer sandals from Ziera.  They’re at least 5 years old and I think they need to go in the bin before next summer.  Just give me a moment to deal.

Kimba Likes wearing playsuit for Summer Style File 14 day style challenge

playful playsuit

The only piece missing from my wardrobe for Summer Style File 14 day style challenge was a playsuit.  Picked up this little baby for a mere $20 from Kmart. It’s flattering and comfy.  We love that!

Darecember’s prompt was new do.  I’m currently growing out my asymmetric cut, and dealing with the drama of super dry hair from my autoimmune disease, so my new do? All about the fab KhairPep Transforme masque that I’ve ditched my conditioner for.

Kimba Likes wearing talking tee for Summer Style File 14 day style challenge

talking tee

I tucked my hair into my super cute Kirbee Lawler scarf tied as a hairbow, tucked my Ruby & Lilli Talking Tee into my customised Levi’s cutoffs, and rolled my Vanessa Mooney crystal lariat, kindly gifted by Shopbop, around my neck, for Darecember’s tuck and roll.

Kimba Likes wearing chambray for Summer Style File 14 day style challenge

chambray champion

H2T chambray for Summer Style File – polkadot chambray skater kicks from Target, Bonds dress and vintage-from-my-closet chambray hairbow for Darecember’s vintage prompt.

Kimba Likes wearing sandals for Summer Style File 14 day style challenge

sandal scandal

It had to be these lovely embellished gladiator sandals from my fabulous kindly gifted Planet Shoes summer shoerobe.

Teamed with H&M fabric hairband, kindly gifted polkadot chambray sleeveless swing shirt from BeMe, Rockmans retrocute denim shorts and my fabulous sweetie darling Gorman shades in tangerine for Darecember’s Orange Kisses.

Also, can we talk about these orange nails!  SNS nails for the win.  I’ll get them done again before we head off on holiday in early January and that’s my nails taken care off for the entire holiday season.

PS – the cat bangle? It’s a Kate Spade activity tracker.  Mine was kindly gifted by Shopbop and you can grab yours here. It’s just too cute!

Kimba Likes wearing pink for Summer Style File 14 day style challenge

think pink

Because on Wednesdays, we wear pink! I mixed some prints for Darecember, with my Kate Spade Ryan tote, kindly gifted by Shopbop, and a tonne of pink patterns!  Kitten Vintage refashioned 80s cotton frock, ASOS leather belt embroidered with pink Aztec designs, and pink silk graphic print Oroton scarf tied as a hairbow.

Plus a bit more pink with Kenzie Collective Girl Boss heart studs and Mimco shades.
