Deb's challenge to leopardlux was to use four items that haven't been worn for a year and make an outfit that feels like her out of them.
Since I can't leave a challenge well enough alone, I immediately started thinking about what I have languishing unworn, and how to make an outfit. I'll admit, it was a real challenge - this, my third attempt - is finally worth keeping on. (I also modified the idea to "worn this season" rather than worn in the past year....)
It's pants weather for me, and since I wear pants all the time, coming up with unworn pants was a trick. These brown cords to the rescue. I'm not sure that I haven't worn them this season, but I've certainly worn them less than everything else. And since the pants are brown, I decided it had to be Angie's peach/navy/brown ensemble that I would wear for color. This shell is almost teal, and I've never worn it because it's too big. I like the color though, and the length with pants. It's probably worth taking in a bit. And this orange/coral jacket has also gone unworn this winter, though I wore it lots last winter. (None of my jackets have gotten wear this winter - it's all about sweaters right now).
Finally, my yellow cowboy boots felt right with the warmth of colors in this outfit. But I tried on my (also orphaned) oxfords too. My kids prefer the boots - what do you think?
This outfit is brighter than what I've worn for a lot of the winter, but it still feels like me. I like it's strong, saturated colors.
What are your suggestions for improvement?
