The Messy Project Reveal!

Welcome to the MESSY PROJECT!
Finally, right?

The Messy Project

Inspired by the brilliant fashionista Kelly, this little project was to show us that we can embrace our differences and make a fashion statement with our OWN style.
Simply put, Kelly picked a shirt, sent us all said shirt, and then we had to rock it our own way.

"When I started blogging about 6 months ago I wanted to find a fun way to interact with other bloggers doing something different than anybody else. Something to convey who we are. To show our style. To put our creative minds to work. To express our inner Fashionista. So The Messy Project was born." 
- Kelly, Messy Dirty Hair

I have to admit, I was a bit scared hesitant at first because I don't think of myself as a 'fashionista'
Luckily, my love for Kelly and desire for a challenge, outweighed my hesitance.
I jumped in head first, and as soon as I received my project shirt...I was ready to rock'n roll!


The Deal:
1 Top
5 Girls
5 Different Looks
1 Major Blog Post Day


I immediately got in touch with the talented Dennis of All About You Photography, and he was happy to indulge me by capturing my S-T-Y-L-E in my attempts to do Kelly and the project right.
Plus I just don't do half @ss, obviously...
I'm an overachiever.


I chose to pair my top with:
Navy Cinch Waist Dress
White High-Waisted Belt
~and~
Nude Sling Backs

Please take a gander and tell me if you approve. I'd love to know!

The best part is that we were able to use the INCREDIBLE Broadmoor Resort as our setting, and it will literally take your breath away. This last picture captures a glimpse at how magical the place is...

Anyhoosit...Can you see why this is such a fun idea? 
We had a blast, got to flex our creativity, and we got to work with a fabulous group of girls!
It was amazing to see how we all put our own spin on it, and you can check out their style too:

And our Hostest with the Mostest....

Kelly is continuing this project indefinitely, so you can all join in the future!
I can verify that it's TOTALLY worth it.


If you want to see more of the Broadmoor, and the rest of the photo shoot, head over to my Facebook page! As soon as we hit 150 followers they will be shared!
Maybe I'll even share about the last time Will and I stayed there for a romantic getaway...
{Oooh lala}

Well, happy Wednesday, y'all, and stay stylish ;)

Lovely photos, I'm looking forward to seeing what the others did with the shirt and how versatile it was. Have to say though it wasn't the shirt that was drawing my attention in the photos, but your hair, stunning! That's the length I'm aiming for, I have about another 3inches or so to go.
