Day Thirteen: Neutral with a Pop of Color

Yes, I know. I skipped Day 12 of the 21-Day Challenge. How DARE I, right? Well, fear not, dear reader, I have something up my sleeve. More on that later.

I must confess that I actually wore Day 13's outfit on Day 12. There, I said it.  (Feels good to get that off my chest!)  You see, I have these people who insist on telling me that I can't wear denim to the office. I mean, who do they think they are?!  Okay, they're my employers. I sorta rely on them for...well, everything.  I would be in a very sorry state indeed if I rebelled against their rules.  So my "Jazz Up Your Jeans" post will have to wait. Till tomorrow. :-)

If you're still with me, (1) Thank You! and (2) you've got way more patience than I do.  Here's my outfit for yesterday. Hope you like it.
Top and Shoes - TJ Maxx; Skirt - Lane Bryant
This is my kind of outfit, let me tell ya!  It's cute, it's comfy, and it's cool.  Three essential ingredients for summer-in-St. Louis style.


Just look at these cute shoes!  Can you believe I got them for $5.00?!  I love them.


I couldn't resist adding a couple of bracelets. The yellow and silver one was on clearance at Target this week. The clear/silver/black one was on clearance from J. Jill a couple of years ago. 


And just in case you want to play along, here are the outfit prompts in store for week three of the challenge:

Sunday, August 28: Copycat! Recreate an outfit you love from a catalog, blog, etc.
Monday, August 29: Try something new with your hair
Tuesday, August 30: Menswear
Wednesday, August 31: Pull something from your repair pile, fix it and wear it
Thursday, September 1: Statement jewelry
Friday, September 2: Wear something on your head
Saturday, September 3: Wear Sunday shoes
Sunday, September 4: Work it! Use all your newfound dressing confidence to put together a killer outfit that works for you!

Hope you're having a great weekend!

  1. Ooh, I REALLY like it. The (still neutral!) patterned top was a great idea! And yellow is such a fun pop color.
