WIW from Ingunn's challenge

I noticed Ingunn's challenge late, but wanted to join in as soon as I saw it.  So here's the outfits I've hit so far (some are a stretch... and apologies for poor photography.) 

#1-#2 Dress over pants.  I loved this combination, and will wear it again - thanks for suggesting it Ingunn!  I don't think I'd have ever tried it otherwise.  I was even warm enough.  It rescues my sweater dress and my colored skinnies.  I really liked it with my coat.  A complete stranger swooned over it with the coat on :)

#3-4 animal print.  I was sad that I didn't have any animal print to join that day.  Then I remembered this frog tee shirt.  It's quite old, and the outfit was really casual (more than even I usually wear), but it wasn't bad for a day home with the kids.  And my 5 year old loved that my tee matched his underwear (they were sewn from the same sheet years ago).

#5 Daytime sparkle.  I thought this outfit looked better in person - jeans, sparkly sweater, a jacket, and silver shoes.  I got compliments on it.

#6, No black (white lace over jeans)
#7 could have been a belted scarf, but I didn't belt the scarf.  I did wear a belt and a scarf :)
#8 - no black again?  I was trying doubling up sweaters as a method to keep warm - here it's a dark red turtleneck under a dark red sweater. And it was warm :)
#9. Umm... no black again?  gray and teal over blue jeans.
#10 Color blocking that I just may re-wear when it's scheduled.  I ended up liking this super bright cashmere sweater over blues.

All comments are welcome!  And thanks for a fun challenge Ingunn - it's been just the thing to get me enjoying my clothes again!

    You are a champ for keeping up with Ingunn's challenge. I am a slouch. I managed one outfit yesterday and that is it. :(  

    I laughed myself silly about your frog tee matching your son's undies. So cute! 

    I agree with you that the blues really soften the bright of that fun colour blocked sweater. And then you have double colour blocking! 

    I admire your dress/ pants outfit; this is something I really struggle with myself and I am not sure I can come up with an actual outfit that I would wear that involves those two elements. But I'm going to try it tomorrow. Better late than never. Fun how this rescued your coloured skinnies. 

    I think #5 is my favourite here, so not surprised it got compliments.

    Wow, Amy, I think Ingunn's challenge inspired some amazing outfits for you. I love the dress over skinnies in 2. The fab outfit in 5 really caught my eye, too, and I bet it did look even more stunning in person with the shiny elements. The lace is 6 is such a fun element with your boyfriend jeans, and the layers in 9 are terrific.

    Looks like you had a blast with Ingunn's challenge :)

    I love the jacket in #1, dress over pants looks great too. Other standouts for me are 5,6 8 and 10.

    I'm not surprised you got compliments for 5, you look wonderful in that outfit.

    The color block sweater is adorable!

    Such a pretty pink coat in #1! Isn't a dress over pants, or skirt over leggings, just super comfortable?! As well as a fresh, different silhouette.
    You look wonderful in #5--polished and professional with seasonal sparkle.
    And the blue shirt works unexpectedly well with the colorblock sweater. I probably wouldn't have thought to try it; but it looks great!

    How fabulous are you in that pink peacoat. WOW. And you look really polished in #5. Your hair looks lovely. xo

    Ok, my pick is #9 for the layered sweaters. Advanced stuff there :)
