My friend Cyndi is a style blogger for those of us over 40 and she’s participating in an awesome personal styling service in the form of a 21 day challenge! I’m doing it myself and can’t wait to get started!! Today is the first day to sign up so read a little about it and then click over from my link below and all your questions will be answered! Here a few things to know about the Build Your Wardrobe Challenge!
Style Me Pretty Challenge | Build Your Wardrobe
Imagine waking up every morning and knowing EXACTLY what you’re wearing that day. Better yet, having a closet full of age-appropriate wardrobe basics plus a multitude of mix and match outfits just right for any occasion. No more looking into your closet not knowing what to wear or wandering around the mall not knowing what to buy. All the work is done for you.
How Does the Build Your Wardrobe Basics Challenge Work?
You’ll receive a shopping list of age-appropriate wardrobe essentials perfect for just about any occasion. Don’t worry – you won’t have to invest a ton of money to participate. A lot of the pieces might already be in your closet and you’re free to shop at your favorite stores. You can spend as much or as little as you want.
You’ll get ten days to get the pieces in place. After that you’ll receive 21 days of outfit combos created from those pieces in your inbox daily. You can choose to style your pieces and wear the outfit that day or save it for another day. All of the outfits are able to be downloaded and printed so you can refer back to them.
- Your Build Your Wardrobe Basics Shopping List – A list of wardrobe essentials with links to recommended items plus a downloadable PDF to print off and take shopping with you.
- 21 Days of Daily Outfits – A different outfit combo each day created from the pieces on your shopping list. Outfits are released at 7:00 p.m. ET the night before so you can have it ready to wear the next day.
- Facebook Group – Each style challenge has it’s own private Facebook group where you can show off your style, share shopping tips and make great friends. Most participants agree that this is the best part of the challenge!
Who is the Build Your Wardrobe Basics Challenge for?
Cyndi and I specifically created this challenge for women over 40 who are either starting a core wardrobe from scratch or are ready to update their basic wardrobe. We will provide 21 days of mix and match outfit options created from the pieces in the core wardrobe shopping list provided. It will be great for women who work outside of the home and those that don’t. There will even be some special occasion outfit options perfect for the upcoming holiday season!

I also wanted to sing the praises of Young Living Essential Oils, which I’ve been using now for about a year. As you probably know, I’m a family doctor on very extended sabbatical (as in, if you keep reading my blog and supporting my work, I’ll probably be on an eternal sabbatical!) so I was naturally a little skeptical of all the great things I had heard about the oils. I had used other brands of oils before without having any WOW results.
But after using YL and having consistent results over and over, I’m a HUGE FAN. And I’ve always been into natural remedies but these oils have changed everything for me. I think you’d love them too if you tried them. These are medicinal grade oils that are unlike anything else on the market.
We’re entering that season of colds and other seasonal ailments and I can’t tell you how relieved it makes me to know I have THIEVES around to support my immune system and promote overall wellness. GET YOU SOME!!
Also, with all the stress I’ve been under lately, I don’t know how I would have made it without the oils. I use them all day everyday! I’ve been using Peace and Calming at night for relaxation and sleep. I’ve also been using Frankincense all over my face at night before bed (to promote younger, healthier looking skin) and I LOVE IT!! Last week, I burned myself with a curling iron because my pixie cut was driving me crazy. I used Lavender and Frankincense and to promote healing and was so happy with the results. I adore these products so much that I’ve decided to use my referral link as one of the primary ways to sponsor my blog so if you’ve never heard of them or have been wanting to read more or try them out, visit my YL page and get healthy while you help support my site!
I’ll say this for sure—it’s makes way more sense to sign up as a wholesale buyer with the Premium Starter Kit because you get several hundred dollars worth of oils and a diffuser for $150. I just placed another order because up until now, I’ve been using only the oils that come in the starter kit, but after seeing how well they’ve worked in the last few months, I don’t want to be without them when sick season hits and there are others I wanted to try. I promise you that the money you will save this cold and flu season on OTC meds will pay for this kit easily and you’ll be using natural remedies that have so many benefits beyond what you’re even using them for. We have a WONDERFUL private Facebook group that I can add you to once you start using the oils that will answer every question you have and help you get the most benefit out of every oil you use.

For the style challenge or the oils? I can email them for you?
Let me know!!
Andrea at Opulent Cottage says
I’m wearing one of my outfits from the Fall Fashion Challenge today, now that it’s finally gotten cool enough here in Dallas! I love it, and I can highly recommend Alison’s program!! Heading over to check out the essential oils, it seems like the perfect complement to our holistic lifestyle! Happy Halloween to you and your sweet family 🙂
Edie Wadsworth says
So cool, Andrea!! I can’t wait to do the challenge! Such a brilliant idea!
And you will fall head over heels for the oils. I’m such a HUGE FAN!
Cindy Lynn says
I just signed up for Over 40 Style Challenge & am so excited to begin receiving the wardrobe ideas!! I wish it started sooner! I just made purchases yesterday at lunch & will be taking them back today at lunch…. Thanks so much Edie!! Heading over to check out the oils as well!

I just made it thru summer with one pair of capris, a few t-shirts, and a pair of sandals. My winter wardrobe will be much the same: exchange the capris for jeans and mary janes for the sandals, add a sweater, and done. If I even remotely thought I could shop for everything needed within ten days, I’d be all over this challenge! Looking forward to seeing how it works out for you. You’re always adorable!!
I’m signing up for the challenge…I did the one she had in the summer and it was fabulous! 🙂 And your essay on having a pixie was so awesome. Like, totally. I’m growing my super short pixie cut out right now and no matter how many products I use my hair looks like Dorthy Hammal’s and Justin Beiber’s hair got together and had a baby. (oh, the awkward stages…)
I already became a young living member before your post on essential oils, but would really love to be a part of the fb group as I am new to oils. Is there a way I can join?
Trudy K says
Thank you for the printables. They are such a blessing. Can’t wait for the next newsletter.
Love and big hugs.
I love oils too, although I have to say Native American Nutritionals are may fave. I love that they come in a more variety of sizes and don’t have to sign up as a wholesale buyer.

Hi, Edie! Don’t think the newsletter sign-up is working for some of us! I signed up last month but didn’t receive this weekends’ with the awesome printable! Thought I should try signing up again, but after pushing button, nothing happens :(. Don’t want to miss out on your amazing writing or the “freebies”. Thanks! And thank you for blessing us all with your thoughts, notes, pictures, recipes… Everything!
Julie D. says
I love you Edie!! Carry on Sister.
Hi, Edie! Don’t think the newsletter sign-up is working for me either! I signed up a couple of months ago, but didn’t receive this weekends’ with the awesome printable! Thought I should try signing up again, but after pushing button, nothing happens :(.
I am really excited about getting started on oils but I want to make an informed decision. As I’m reading about each company it just gets harder to make a decision. I am back and forth between young living and doterra. I hate to put you on the spot but can I ask how you made your decision between the 2? Thanks so much
Edie Wadsworth says
I think you’re smart to research it but I love Young Living for so many reasons. They own all their own farms and have impeccable quality standards. Keep reading about both and see what you come up with. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed with YL.

My budget has zero room for buying clothes right now. Is it possible to join the Style Me Pretty challenge just to get ideas? Goodness knows my wardrobe could use the help when there are funds in the budget!
I signed up for the oils under you and I can’t wait! How do I join the facebook group? Thanks
You may not like the ankle boot and dress look but I think it was fab! That’s a really cute black dress and it looked GREAT the way you paired it!Wholesale Women’s Denim
Leggings are not for every one. Away with the comfort factor. I agree that it is distracting in a negative way when some women wear leggings with a crop top. It is very inappropriate. Leggings are crotch hugging. Why would any decent woman want to display the outline of her crotch? No self-respecting woman would do this. Leggings should be worn with tops that have reasonable length to cover your bum and crotch. End of story.Italian made sunglasses
I would say that my hat is my favorite thing to wear. I mean, I cannot really go anywhere without them. The cap that I wear is the one that my father gave me. Well, he passed away when I was still a kid, so I keep it as a memento from his. It sounds really cheesy and all, but it is important to me. I will never go outside without it on my head.Italian made sunglasses
This unique seems to be thoroughly ideally suited. Each one of minor essentials are produced alongside large amount of story knowledge. I’m a for the considerably.mjolnir necklace
You are looking great in them. I think I will need to share this with my wife too. She has been having issues with styling out herself using just the clothes in her closet. She will surely love this.mjolnir necklace
Layering is essential when you live in the mountains. We also try to make sure all of our clothes will go with several different pieces, that way the clothing can be worn more times without seeming the same.Bino Shirt
Unique perspective on time based cateogories. I’d be interested in seeing how you break out your accounts within each time period. I noticed that you said each category might contain multiple accounts, but you didn’t give any details about how you structured those. Bino Shirt
