I am hoping that this month's challenge will help me be more creative when I'm deciding on my daily outfits. I'm posting the ones from week one below - and would welcome any suggestions on how to improve them.
Day two's outfit: as you can see, my cardigan and short-sleeved top are a warmer shade of green. Do you agree that this is a more flattering colour?
I was wearing cooler colours again on day 3, though with a gold necklace. I know vertical stripes aren't advised for petites, however I do enjoy wearing them. Rules are made to be broken, aren't they? I think the navy stripes in the jumper worn with navy jeans does help make me look a bit taller too.
Day 4 illustrates the beauty of having a hero piece (the patterned cardigan) in a capsule wardrobe. I'm wearing my cardigan with a brown top and jeggings in this photo, however I could also wear it with coral, teal, yellow, green or pink as all those colours are in the pattern.
I wore my new chocolate brown lace top and sand trousers for Day 6. This outfit is one of my favourites as I feel elegant wearing it, and elegance doesn't come naturally to me. My style recipe is colourful casual chic with a little bit quirky and a Parisian influence. Perhaps it's the Parisian influence at work here?
So for week one I succeeded in wearing seven completely different outfits, though as you can see I did repeat the trousers. The outfits that I wore were a mix of new clothes and pieces that have been in my wardrobe for a while. There was also a mix of outfits in cooler colours and warmer ones. I think my favourites were the ones I wore on day 2, day 4 and day 6 - I'd love to hear what you think too.
