WIW: Ingunn Challenge, week 2

Thanks Ingunn for the fun challenges!

You've already seen my "animal print" with frogs, and my dress over pants (which I've already repeated, I liked it so much).  So here's the remainder of the week:
#1 Winter white out.  This was quite far outside my comfort zone, and I spilled chocolate on my jeans mid-afternoon so changed before taking my kids to Wednesday night clubs in the evening.

#2 Color blocking - being real and showing it with the addition of my long cardigan, which is how most things are worn when it's really cold :)  But the outfit looked better without it.  You've seen it before - it's going to be a frequent repeat, I think.

#3 Graphic (from week 1, but just worn today).  I don't actually own a graphic tee, but my hubby was given this one for Christmas, and I like it.  So I stole it today.  I wore it with light grey jeans and my long cardigan (my 7 lbs lost reward to myself, and already a workhorse).  In this outfit, the long cardigan actually felt like it belonged, and the happiness factor was high (not entirely sure why, but it made me smile every time I caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror - I like the monotone nature of it and the cheeky graphic, I think).

I haven't tried the full skirt or the colored/patterned tights outfits yet, but I may.... 

I really do appreciate this challenge - it's making fashion in the winter fun again :)
All comments welcome - especially suggestions for improvements.

    Amy, I'm thrilled that you are doing the challenge, too! Sorry to hear about the chocolate, but the outfit looked great. The sweater is perfect for this. Both the color blocking outfit and the graphic tee outfit are fab and seem very much you.

    Nicely done Amy. And a great cardigan for you!

    These outfits all turned out very well for you, chocolate notwithstanding. I like the long cardi and graphic t shirt one best.

    You look great in white-out! Good for you, for going outside your comfort zone -- chocolate notwithstanding!

    Love the graphic tee, too -- no wonder you stole it.

    Well done on the challenge! I like all your outfits - fun to steal from your DH :) I actually really like the cardi on top of your colour-blocked outfit! Congrats on your 7lbs, too.

    *Applause *. The white out is my favorite. One of these days your children will have all sorts of graphic tees to borrow :). They make me smile too.

    I like them all but agree that the white out is great. Maybe not the most practical, but very chic!
