Posts Tagged ‘Remix Challenge

Loving Sarah’s idea for a remix challenge and joining the party late, as she did it for February… After 3 days of mostly neutrals, I decided it was time for a little color….Well, more like a “PUNCH” of color!  

But first here is the previous day’s look:

And now for the PUNCH OF COLOR

IMG_2594If you are a close observer you may note that I actually carried over three items from yesterday, the leggings, ballet flats and purse… You have to admit that fuschia is quite an influx of color compared to the three previous looks!  This was a perfect Mon on the Go look for my day of homeschooling, laundry and a quick walk to the grocery store with my homeschooler…We love going for walks some days and since only in year 2 of homeschooling it still feels special to be out and about during traditional school hours.

This tunic is by Motto, a QVC brand and no longer available as I snatched it up last year when it went on clearance.   Both the jean jacket and purse are thrifted finds.. I could never have imagined how much I would come to love this Nine West purse.  It is just the perfect size to grab and go and adds another pattern element.   Well worth it’s $4 price tag.. These ballet flats are by Anne Klein purchased at DSW over two years ago and a favorite of mine.. I may have to look out for their replacement as this may be their final year…

I hope you enjoyed this burst of color because I do and may just have to carry over that tunic for tomorrow’s look… I have a method to this as I am working my way towards my St. Patrick’s outfit without having to take a break in the challenge…

Dear Readers, do you hate it as much as I do when you have to face replacing a favorite pair of shoes?  If you are a blogger are you feeling as grateful for the extra daylight that allows for more opportunity for picture taking?  

Linking Up with Look What I Got, stop by and see what other fabulous bloggers are doing…

Gratitude;  I am grateful for the breakdown with a child today that led to a break through..(just wish I would remember that the breakdown means a break through is coming around the corner)  I am grateful that my husband got his check a day earlier than we anticipated.  I am grateful for the walk to the grocery store with my youngest and the memory of how much my walks with my father are a part of his legacy.  I am grateful for finding this remix challenge and how much fun I am having with it… I never said how long I was going to keep this going….

Yesterday I began this “Take one, Pass it On Remix  Challenge”  created by blogger, Sarah with the above outfit. Today I kept the striped top to create  a new look.

Since I started the shootie with a skirt look this season and am loving it, I wanted another opportunity to rock it before Spring arrives! I also began pattern mixing this season as well.   Starting a blog has really opened up my playful side to fashion and that makes me very happy!

Tomorrow’s outfit will be what I wear to my Weight Watcher meeting.  If you have been following me for a while you may have noticed that I choose to wear a dress to those meetings for consistency in the weight of clothing, which can vary dramatically.  I actually have removed a sweater that took almost two pounds off the scale…

Dear Readers can you guess which item I will keep for tomorrow’s look? This challenge may get trickier as the weather is warming up to the 60’s this week…  What do you think of this challenge compared to the traditional 30 by 30 challenge where you restrict yourself to thirty clothing and shoe options to remix for a month?  I love this because I don’t have to restrict my shoe choices!   Come back tomorrow and see what I keep and what my choices are to keep for the following day.   If you want to join in the fun remember you can post looks on my Facebook page.  

Linking Up with Real Girl Glam, so head on over and see what others are wearing and talking about!  

Gratitude: Not feeling very grateful today, thought I had figured out a solution to a problem and was handed a curve ball that left me without any idea for another possible solution… I am an easy going problem solver and optimist, but every once in awhile I feel severely tested and broken… a rare occurrence but reality…  That was what how I originally felt until a reader left a comment which changed my entire outlook and to whom I am so grateful for the comment and letting me know that my blog is inspiring, as I have had a hole in my heart since closing my consignment store where i built up women and inspired them daily, which filled my spirit and made me soar.  So if you are a lurker and haven’t yet commented, I hope you take note and realize your words have great power!
