Capsule Wardrobe Style Challenge - complete!

Day five of the challenge has come and gone, and I feel like I was able to put together some really unique outfits with my pieces.

I don't know why, but I really like these awkard disjointed poses

If I were to do another (and I think I will) I would definitely include some earrings in with my accessories. The peacock bangle I wore on Monday I selected not knowing it would become part of such a challenge, and subsequently didn't wear it again because heavy bangles get in my way when trying to type, so I always end up taking them off; therefore I won't wear them on days when I have work.


Today I fashioned my dress as a top and bloused it over the waist band of the lace skirt. This was mostly to get the dress to a length where it didn't hang below the skirt, but also to obscure the thick waist band of the skirt and give it a slightly different look.


I also wore the floral cardigan again (I'm glad I'm getting so much use out of it!) and chose navy tights for a slightly different look with my black pumps. The cut-outs really work their magic when you've got something to contrast the black.

Anyone else starting a style challenge? If so, count me in!

I like the idea of wearing the dress as a top, cool! I just bought my first cardigan the other week, hehe.

I love that cardigan. (: It's got so many colors in it = so many things you can do it with it.

You did really well with your items! I am loving that black skirt!

I'm thinking of starting a challenge for myself. To find an item in my closet that I haven't worn for at least 6 months (but can't bring myself to part with) and try to find at least four ways to wear it with what I currently have in my wardrobe-

I'm sort of loving the idea of wearing a dress as a top - especially since I have so many more dresses than separates! I'm really craving more lace in my wardrobe too - that skirt is just gorgeous!

Your capsule style challenge reminds me of a feature they used to do in Lucky Magazine! I always loved to see remixes of limited versatile items! Really cute outfits you came up with too!

HI! sorry for being slow on replying :) thanks for the sweet comment on 5 inch and up :)

I would also love to have the power of making everything my size... lucky for me the boots might fit now that I have tried to wear them with thick socks! :) xxx

This is so pretty, I love this outfit!
Love that you went with navy tights, instead of black. Small change, but it makes all the difference. :)
From the pictures, it looks like you live in a really nice area.

floral carigans are the best (wearing one right now ;-) I had one for years and when it died I hunted on etsy and ebay for months to find a suitable replacement. good job on the challenge!

Thank you for your comment in my blog, it's always nice to meet new people.
Love your outfits but I have a soft spot for this last one, maybe because of the conjugation between the color of the shirt and the flowers of the cardigan.
