In January 2013 myself and Alice from Project Wanderlust launched a daily style challenge called the #NYNYStyleProject. At the time it was the only UK style challenge doing the rounds on Instagram and as such had a very large and loyal following. Quite simply, we wanted to encourage women to feel better about themselves and to help inspire them to inject a little glamour into their day-to-day lives. It was originally only meant to be a one off (hence the 'New Year New You' name) but lasted almost a year - and that Summer, Kara from Innocent Charms Chats and Carissa from Little Likely Lads also joined the team.
And now, after a bit of a break, I'm thrilled to announce that the style project is back! With a new name and the full team behind it, we're hoping that it will be bigger and better than ever before.
Are you stuck in a style rut and fed up of wearing the same things day in, day out? Do you need a bit of inspiration and motivation? Then look no further. Here is the brand new prompt list for the month of September!
Want to play? Here's what to do!
♥ Find the day's prompt on the month's list. We will publish these in advance, usually around the 25th day of the month.
♥ Interpret the prompt as you will - and incorporate your interpretation into your daily style. It can be an item of clothing you own, a piece you've seen and are lusting after, a beauty product, anything!
♥ Take a photo!
♥ Share it on Instagram or Twitter. Don't forget to use the hashtag #TheStyleProject 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! xoxo
