Over the month of September Stephanie from Wife Mommy Me hosted a clothing challenge called Dress-tember. The idea was to wear 10 dresses over the month of September. Easy enough, right? So I warned the husband that if I started wearing more dresses than normal he didn’t need to worry about me (It’s the sad truth) and I got started!
On day #1 I picked up a Dress-tember buddy. When Emily heard about the challenge she whole heartedly wanted to participate too. There was NO WAY I would, or could, say no to that. So she joined the fun with her messy hair, spunky spirit, mismatched sock and love for sneakers with dresses.
September was a HOT month. We only had 4 days that even started out remotely fall like and nearly every one of those ended like summer. I guess all in all this worked to my advantage because my spring/summer dress selection is way better than my fall/winter one.
Here are a few things I noticed through the month:
#1 I need to up my sandal game. I pretty much just have two pairs of casual ones and some brown dressier ones that I wear. Maybe something dressier in black would be nice to add in?
#2 Taking all of these photos made me feel really awkward especially purposefully trying to make sure they all didn’t look exactly the same. But Emily? She’s a natural with some VERY creative poses.
#3 I have WAY more color and pattern in my wardrobe than if I had done this challenge a few years back. I love seeing that.
#4 My hair is down in nearly every photo but it is rarely down in real life.
#5 A lot of my dresses and skirts are from Old Navy. I didn’t even realize that until I started working on this post. I guess I shop there more than I think.

We had the best time participating in Dress-tember with Stephanie. It was the perfect way to mix up my wardrobe and wear some pieces that I had neglected. We would love to make it a yearly tradition in the Newman house and maybe one year all 3 of us will participate!
