Challenge V3

May 12th, 2010 by Selise

And we’re back. Apologies for the late posting of yesterdays outfit. We went to Shnookie’s to watch the UFC and were there a lot longer than anticipated. We got home with just enough time to take the make up off, brush the teeth and fall into a log-like sleep before it was time to be up and out the door again. Tonight should be a lot more low-key so I can catch up on everything that’s been slowly piling up around me.

To break the funk of the last few days I got the man on board for another challenge (others here and here). This time he said it wasn’t about a piece so much as a colour. He wanted to see what I’d do with red and promptly selected 3 red shirts. Having 3 to choose from to start was hard so I asked him to single one out and he chose this guy.

Originally I had it paired with wool tights, grey high waisted shorts and my new blazer. It looked OK but I decided it might be a little too much (or not enough? The shorts are kinda short) for work. My favourite parts are the details in here today. I’m over the moon at the necklace/shirt combination and really love using this broach that The Man gave me for my birthday as a belt buckle.

To be honest I think the funk was broken last night when I got ready to go to Shnookie’s. I had to get dressed real quick and threw on everything that I felt like wearing and it just worked. I am a huge fan of tights, shorts, dress layering in the colder months. I just need to figure out how to do it for work.
