21 Day Challenge, Day 4: The Colorblocking Conundrum

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.
