WIW: Ingunn challenge week 3

I posted this on Ingunn's thread, but wanted a copy for my blog too:

I loved this week - it stretched and challenged me.

My pictures are out of order, but here's what I wore:
#1 buttondown and lace and denim on denim.  This is an old picture - I wore the same outfit twice, and didn't get a picture either day!  In this week's version, I wore black shoes, not the blue slip-on sneakers

#2 color blocking was easy for me.  I have two color blocked sweaters, so I just picked one and wore it :)  Over a column of mid-blue, with mid-blue slip-on sneakers to match in this week's version.

#3-#4 crop top and trousers was a hard one for me.  I didn't think I had a crop top, but found this cropped tee at the last minute.  The sleeves on it were too narrow to wear another sleeved top under it, which left this teal shell as the only real option.  It bunched weirdly, and high lighted my tummy pooch.  But in the end I still liked it.  

#5 matchy-matchy was another difficult one for me.  I ended up going for my red/black/white plaid sneakers, and pairing it with red black and white on the top too.  I liked the way it ended up working.

#6 was from last week's calendar, but not worn until Sunday - the full skirt outfit.  I'm not completely sure it worked great, but I didn't feel like it was a total flop either.

Thanks for a great challenge Ingunn!  I'm thinking that I want to make up a challenge schedule for myself for February also - its' been fun to have something to scheme toward each day!

    Well I said how much I liked the long cardi on you on Ingunn's thread, so I'll rave about the black and red on this one :D Like it so much I can't stand it!

    These are all so much fun. I love #5 and wish I had the stuff to copy cat.

    Fun! Love the colors in 2 and the plaids in 5! Btw your hair has gotten so long!! Looks good.

    You have done great with the challenge Amy.  I love #1 and #5, they look fab.  I love the crop top layering idea but would like it best if it was looser at the hemline.

  • Summer replied 5 years ago

    I love the way you throw yourself into a challenge, Amy.  5 is my favourite.

    Well done, Amy!  I don't know how you do it with your busy mornings, but you're exploring all the possibilities in your closet with this challenge, and that's terrific!

    I like 1,4 and 5 best.  What about layering the sleeveless top in #1 over the skirt in #6?
