Take one, pass it on day 3

Just a quick reminder:  Tomorrow I will be hosting the THURSDAY THREADS linkup!  Come back and post your favorite outfit of the week!  

IMG_2073 I didn’t quite expect “Take one, pass it on” to be as difficult as it was today.  Last night I laid out an outfit that looked great, but when I saw it in daylight the colors weren’t working together in a way I thought was attractive.  I found myself VERY tempted to go back to an outfit that looked a lot like what I wore on Monday (grey and red, this time with some black), and that just wouldn’t have done at all. In the end, I kicked myself a bit outside my comfort zone to come up with today’s (more colorful) outfit.

  • Purple pants (Coldwater Creek, on DEEP after christmas clearance)
  • Grey Tee (ASOS, from yesterday)
  • Pink cardigan (Marshall’s)
  • Scarf (Marshall’s)
  • Purple purse (Kate Spade on DEEP clearance last fall)
  • Black Shoes (Aerosoles by way of Zappos)

With the exception of the shoes, this makes the third straight day of no black.  That is kind of an accomplishment in and of itself.

My husband cracked me up this morning when he told me that this worked, although he never would have thought it would.  I figured that scarf works for pulling the colors together without being too match-ey.

All that said, I am mostly pleased with this sweater.  I picked it up at Marshall’s last week and am very pleased with the color; in the closeup I think it works really well with my skin.

Finally, it took entirely too long last night but I did my nails in a nice metallic purple and it’s neat enough for me not to hate it.  Go me!
