Though I officially ended my spring 10x10 capsule wardrobe challenge, for Ultimate Blog Challenge purposes, in last weekend's post, there was actually most of this week left in the month. So I decided to dedicate this last week to a major mulligan - trying to fix some of the outfits that hadn't quite worked, to see if I could make them better.
I also finalized my plans for this month's blog posts, and will share a little about what I have in mind for us.
A Fond Welcome to May: The Blog Plan
This is going to be a busy month! I may be moving house this month, or getting ready for one.
So, I have about 8 blog posts planned. But as Michael J. Fox's character says in The American President, all plans are soft until confirmed. ;)
My intention is for us to talk more about gamine signature style, and my own plus-sized gamine capsule wardrobe, about how to create a mini self-care loungewear capsule while we are all still mostly hanging out at home, how to create a signature style that is transformational, other lessons from my 10x10 challenge, and more.
Hope to see you here! Let me know, in a comment, of you have some topic ideas you'd like to read about here.
Spring 10x10 Challenge Outfit Redux
In the pictures below, the one on the left was my first try, and it didn't quite work. I wasn't sure why, at first.
But then, I thought of adding the scarf to create contrast & cover the tee I was wearing beneath it. The scarf would be a richer color than the darker olive tee I was wearing, so it would create a more vibrant color combination, overall.
And an online friend suggested that darker shoes might help, too..
That made me think of my orange shoes. In the first picture I am connecting the orange in my top to dark orange socks.
But I thought maybe if I wore my orange flats, instead, it would create a stronger and better and thus, more harmonious connection.
And I think my changes worked. I like my second try much better!!
What do you think?
Now, over to you! How might you change an outfit that's not quite working?
I hope my own outfit formula experiment has given you some ideas.
See you next time!
My mission is to help you discover, embrace and celebrate your own beauty and style.
Thanks for dropping by! I'll see you soon.
