Finishing up No-black week

I have now successfully passed a week without wearing black near my face!  (In fact, disregarding shoes, I didn't wear black at all, I don't think).
Here's my final two outfits.  Next week, I'm giving myself a similar challenge.  I'm having fun exploring my wardrobe according to themes!

#1 - #2 worn for indoor (with jacket) and outdoor (without) activities on Friday.
#4 worn Thursday - if I had gone for white shoes rather than brown, it would have been the coral/blue/white color combo!

All suggestions welcome!

    Good job Amy! I have one question for you: did you miss it? The black, that is. I would think that would be easier to omit in the summer than the winter.
    I love that top you have on in 1/2. Such lovely watery colors! You're lookin' fab. :)

    Love the print in #, Amy, and the brown shoes are such a wonderful way to ground a strong color like red.  Well done!  I wore..... black and white today!  Hee.

    The top in 1/2 looks so good with denim! The other outfit looks great too. You had an excellent week. I can't wait to see what your next challenge to yourself will be.

    This sounds like fun Amy! No black automatically makes the outfit summery, isn't it? Love the two outfits especially 1. With the denim jacket it is really chic and cool!

    Love you in these outfits! What a great idea for a challenge! What will you do next?

    You look great in red! How is your haircut working out for you? It looks good.

    It's hard to go without black but you did great.  Love these colors on you.

    Love the outfits, so pretty and summery.  Congratulations on the achievement, black is always indispensable for me and it would be tough to do it.

    #2 is fantastic Amy - such a nice outfit all around and perfect colors for summer!

  • shedev replied 6 years ago

    Well done.

  • Suz replied 6 years ago

    These are great, Amy! I really love #1 on you, particularly. 

    I echo Claire's question. Although I think the opposite -- I might have more trouble eliminating black in summer than in winter! Or, at least black near my face. I tend not to wear it at all in winter, but to wear it sometimes in summer. I do wear black bottoms in winter.

    I love the white slacks in #1 and #2. Yea for no black week!

    It's hard not to be a PIB!

    I really love love the outfit with the red top and brown sandals - those sandals are cool.

    Very nice Amiable - I esp. love the blue denim color on you. How did it feel to go black-free?

  • amiable replied 6 years ago

    TorontoGirl - I liked it!  Black is relatively new to my wardrobe, and it surprised me that it worked.  Now I feel like it almost doesn't (I think that perhaps it works for me in some seasons and not in others).  So while I really wanted to wear black the last couple of days, overall I really liked the lighter looks.  And there's a couple of easy acquisitions that I could make that might eliminate my desire for black all together :)
