July #NYNYStyleProject

It's back! IT'S BACK! The #NYNYStyleProject is finally back!

We've had two months off (which was pretty good timing actually - I don't know about you but I spent most of May in my wellies and/or DIY clothes and so far this month I've been recuperating from an op!) but now it's time to delve back into the depths of your wardrobe and pull out all the super stylish stuff that you forgot you had.

It turns out quite a lot of you missed taking part in the Project last month so Alice and I are very excited to be launching the fifth set of #NYNYStyleProject prompts today and we really, really, really hope lots of you will join in!

If you're a new reader and have no idea what on earth I'm taking about, check out what the #NYNYStyleProject is all about here.

The main idea is to bring about a whole lot of positivity and to encourage people to feel better about themselves. It's that simple! Today's fast paced world makes it all too easy to forget about looking after yourself and taking time for you. The Project is all about glamming up your day to day style, gaining inspiration from each other and introducing you to trends, designers and products you might not have heard of before.

So, are you fed up of wearing the same things day in, day out? Do you need a bit of inspiration and motivation when it comes to fashion? Have you lost your style mojo and do you want it back? Then why not give The Project a whirl!

But before we announce July's prompts, I'd really like to stress two things.

One. You DON'T need to buy new, expensive things in order to take part! Rediscover a love of your current wardrobe / old items of clothing by altering them or trying out new combinations. Have a clothes swap party with your friends. Window shop and try things on you wouldn't usually consider. Photograph things you see and like. Share your Pinterest board with us instead of taking a snap. Don't think that because you can't buy new stuff you can't take part!

Two. You DON'T need to join in every single day. Gosh that would be hard work! Some prompts just aren't do-able - so don't do them! But if you do have a break, for whatever reason, please don't forget about us! Just because you've missed a few days, it doesn't mean you've failed. Come back when you're good and ready, whether it's a day later, a week later or a month later. And keep your eye on that all important hashtag to see what your #NYNYStyleProject friends have been up to.

So now.... without further ado.... the time has come for me to launch July's prompt list! 

{drumroll please}


Want to join in? Here's how to play. 

♥ Find the day's prompt on the current month's list. 
♥ Interpret the prompt as you will, and incorporate your interpretation into your daily style. It can be an item of clothing, a piece of make up or a beauty project that you own or something you've seen and are lusting after.  
♥ Take a photo!  
♥ Share it on Instagram or Twitter. Don't forget to use the hashtag #NYNYStyleProject so that other people can find your pictures.
♥ Search the hashtag yourself and check out other people's photos. Like what you see? Tell the photographer! It's a nice way to get to know eachother and a lovely confidence boost too.  
♥ You don't have to join in every single day! Sometimes it's just not possible - and that's okay! Dip in and out whenever you like, and if you're not able to take your own photos, look at other people's for inspiration.

Most importantly - have fun! - and don't forget to search the #NYNYStyleProject hashtag on Instagram and Twitter! xoxo
