april instagram photo challenge it's simply lindsay

For the past seven months, I have participated in Instagram photo challenges and have shared the themes and my looks with you. In April, the month of my birthday, I decided, why not host my very own? So that’s exactly what I’m doing! I’m so excited to announce my April Instagram Photo Challenge, #simplystyledapril, with some amazing giveaways. Seriously, I wish I could participate for a chance to win, but ultimately I’m excited that some of YOU fabulous people will have a chance to enjoy them.

It’s simple to participate: follow the daily prompts from the calendar, interpret however you want, and share your photo on Instagram with #simplystyledapril. Participate every day starting April 1 or just whenever you feel like it, and be sure to follow the hostesses for a chance to win prizes. We are all mentioned in this link, so you can easily follow the hostesses from there. Photo challenges are a fun way to connect with your friends and find new ones, so be sure to tag friends and share the calendar so they can join in on the fun! Oh, and by sharing the calendar and tagging friends, you will get extra entries towards those oh-so-amazing prizes I was talking about.

April Instagram Photo Challenge Plus Giveaways

My daily themes are not limited to fashion pictures – if that’s not your thing, don’t worry! The themes are all about creativity and having fun in your interpretations. You don’t have to do it every day, but the more days you participate and tag your photos with #simplystyledapril, the more entries you have.

The prizes

The Grand Prize, pictured below, will be chosen at random at the end of the month. In order to win, you must use #simplystyledapril on all your contest photos, and you must follow all the hostesses. Pretty simple, right?


  • Lavani by Dasein rose leather satchel handbag with gold-tone hardware and fully lined with polka dot interior – retail 139.99.
  • Pink pearl stud earrings – retail 59.99.
  • Swarovski crystal bracelet – retail 250.00.

The Birthday Prize: By participating on my birthday, April 28th, you will be entered to win my special birthday prize from Freshy Fig, a personalized bar necklace (up to 10 characters). I had such a difficult time choosing this prize for you because I’m obsessing over everything in this shop, including dainty layering necklaces and classic lockets, so I know you are as excited for this prize as I am.


The Simply Styled Prize: This award will be given to an active participant who the hostesses deem most stylish this month. You can increase your chances of winning the Juicy Couture earrings pictured below by stepping up your Insta-game this month and actively participating. I have the same pair and always get compliments on these sweet gold cherry studs with pink gem accents. So darling.
