April Style Sudoku: Outfits 11–14

This is it! I wrapped up my April style sudoku last weekend. The final four outfits are below, and you can catch all of my daily outfit stories in my “Style Sudoku” highlight on Instagram. I’ll be sharing a full recap post on Wednesday! :)

OUTFIT 11 • Wednesday, April 17th

April Style Sudoku: Outfit 11 — Cotton Cashmere Cat Hair

I wore my burgundy hat to work again and once again got compliments on it. Aren’t compliments on your outfit the BEST?! It makes me feel so good. Even though I did get compliments, this was one of my least favorite outfits. As much as I love contrasting elements in outfits, this one didn’t really “go” well to me: the dark-colored hat and flats feel more fall/winter, and the sweater and jeans feel more spring/ summer. If I had given myself more time to put together this sudoku I may have switched out some of the items, but there’s usually one or two outfits that aren’t my favorite out of the bunch in the end anyway.

April Style Sudoku: Outfit 12 — Cotton Cashmere Cat Hair

I didn’t actually plan out the outfits very well and ended up wearing items back to back in the last few days of my sudoku. Oops! I don’t think anyone noticed, haha. (If they did, no one said anything to me.)

Since my workplace is pretty casual, I feel extra professional every time I wear a blazer, so I saved all those outfits for work days. This was another one with the harsh contrast between the navy blazer and white denim. I tried playing around with tucking the shirt since it is a little bit long, but I couldn’t get it to lay quite right so I let it do its thing. This day was the first day all year that it hit 70 degrees, so I was a little warm in this outfit after work!

OUTFIT 13 • Friday, April 19th

April Style Sudoku: Outfit 13 — Cotton Cashmere Cat Hair

Thursday hit 70°, so naturally, Friday hit 80°! Korri and I took work off, mostly so we could watch the gymnastics national championship; the first meet was in the middle of the day and I didn’t feel like going to work for two hours, coming home, then going back for three more hours…and when Korri decided to take the day off, I did too! I was a little bit productive: I swapped my winter tires out first thing in the morning! After the first semifinal, we went out to lunch downtown and sat outside. It was just about too warm to sit outside and Korri got sunburned on his arms. But man, 80° felt glorious!

I wore this outfit to every activity, even for our patio lunch. I did feel warm, but I wasn’t too warm, and the shirt and hat kept me shaded so I didn’t get sunburned. I’m not a huge fan of the shirt and boyfriend jean combination but do appreciate how well the stripes go with the denim.

Weather: High of 82°F (28°C), slightly breezy, no precipitation

OUTFIT 14 • Saturday, April 20th

April Style Sudoku: Outfit 14 — Cotton Cashmere Cat Hair

I saved my final Hunter boot outfit for last, fully expecting that it wasn’t going to rain, because that would be my luck. Ha! In truth, I didn’t wear this outfit with the Hunter boots because it wasn’t raining when I was out running errands (and by that I mean going to the grocery store). A nice thunderstorm rolled through town in the late afternoon and I had my boots with me just in case, but I didn’t end up walking around outside in the rain. I wore this outfit with my brown flats instead. I’m very happy that it did end up raining because it looks like I planned my outfits out pretty well! ;)

Weather: High of 68°F (20°C), thunderstorm in the late afternoon but otherwise dry
