On day 4 of the 21 Day Challenge, the task was colorblocking.
I have discovered that generally, colorblocking isn’t my thing. I struggled with it the first time I did the 21 Day Challenge, and haven’t done much of it since. I think it’s generally just too much bright color for me.
However, I decided I can colorblock with neutrals and one bright, so that’s what I did. I wore a grey tee with a pink satin skirt, sheer black tights, olive OTK socks, and my black combat boots. For a little extra warmth I added a tan cardigan and a black scarf. I added a red lip to accent my terribly chipped red manicure. I rocked my combat boots, because I was going to be walking around and needed the comfort… plus, they just kind of worked. Everything I wore was a solid, so it was technically color-blocked, but it was definitely a more me look.
Check out the look.
I finally colorblocked an outfit I was comfortable in! So comfortable, in fact, that I spent a good part of the day wandering around Woodfield Mall, scoping some deals, checking out spring fashions, and discovering that they’re remodeling quite a few stores right now, including 2 of my favorites. I loved the subtle textures in the cardigan, socks, and skirt, which helped make this look more me. There isn’t anything I didn’t like about this outfit, and I realized I need to wear this skirt more… it fits me really nice. And it has pockets!
So that’s day 4 of this round of the 21 Day Challenge.
