Three Colors and a Print Challenge

Posted on: November 29, 2012

One of my favorite sites is 40plusstyle and Sylvia issued a challenge to come up with two outfits that had three colors and a pattern.  I looked through my pictures since I began my blog in October,  and was surprised that I did two colors and a pattern very often, but not three.  Since my goal for starting this blog was to challenge myself to go above and beyond my normal styling habits, this was interesting to me.

It just so happened that I had already planned Monday’s outfit which I think totally qualifies:

And of course Tuesday’s,  which I am submitting for the challenge:

Funny, how I chose these two photos, with similar poses… the above outfits are mostly thrifted excluding the boots, while today’s new outfit only includes one thrifted item…Thrif

Today I decided to try for just one more,but this time wanted to do it with pants instead of a dress.  I also wanted to not include black in this version.  Here is what I came up with :

I really just wanted to share in case any of you, my dear readers wanted a thought provoking moment of asking yourself if you succeed with doing three colors and a print in your looks.  If not it is something new to inspire you….If so congratulations, you are more advanced than I am at adventurous styling.

I will keep this in mind, along with pattern mixing and see if I can incorporate it more instead of the two colors I had been doing.  I love learning and trying new things in creating my style….

I really love these Aigner boots that I found on a super clearance deal in the spring.  I have to say the heel height is very comfortable and I could walk in these all day, so would make a perfect Mom on the Go look..

Outfit Details:

Blouse- Thrifted-S.L.B. 70% silk, 30% cotton- $2.50

Cobalt Jacket- Motto via Qvc- last year

Pants- Denim & Co clearanced via Qvc

Boots- Aigner – clearanced $9.99

Linking up with Thrift and Shout today, so go see what some other wonderful bloggers are up to…

Gratitude: I am grateful for this blog and the adventures I am having. I am grateful to my oldest son who cleaned up the kitchen without being asked…I am grateful to my husband for realizing he was talking all about his job and stopping to ask me how my blog was doing.  

As Always Dear Readers, I welcome and appreciate your comments.  Please stop by tomorrow and see “My Lucky Find’s ”  where I scored six dresses from Goodwill.
