The last day of week one! Woo Hoo, lol, it’s been quite a week! Honestly, by the time I made it to this day of the challenge I was glad for the weekend break. This one looks like it should be pretty easy huh? It wasn’t as easy as you might think.
Here is my interpretation for this days outfit. I think it came across more dressy than casual, though I tried. What do you think? The only khaki-ish (is that a word) type pants I had (I was waiting for pair I ordered) were a tan-colored dressier ponte skinny pant. The trench was too dressy, I think, and definitely not spring like. Considering the temperature, if I had been going out, it was appropriate though. The group liked the look with the shirt tied the best, and suggested I style it like this with my favorite jeans. I might just have to try it with those distressed jeans one day. What do you think?
The mens inspired shirt is the same one from my capsule and I showed it on day 1 with my dress, which helped to give it a skirt look. It is from JJill, the cami is from Old Navy, and the pants are the Ponte Skimmer Pants from White House Black Market-WHBM. The trench is by IMAN and came from the Home Shopping Network-HSN. I really like almost everything at WHBM. My only complaint with them is they do not carry their petite line in the store. If I see something I like I go to the store and try it on, to see if I like the look, then I will order it in petite. It an extra step I wish I didn’t have to take, but I don’t like ordering then returning, either.
Here is the close-up of the accessories for this look.
The booties are Vince Camuto from HSN. Isn’t that a surprise, lol! The necklace is called Addilyn and the bracelet is called Selma. They are both from Plunder and still available. You can check them out here: www.plunderdesign.com/party/janete1/ I was a bit unsure about both when I first saw them, but the kept growing on me the more I looked at them. Finally I decided to order them and I’m glad I did. I will be wearing them a lot.
Remember a couple of weeks ago I told you about the Plunder March Madness? Well, it has been going full steam ahead and many items are selling out, in anticiapation of the launch of the spring line. Some items will be coming back, but we don’t know which ones. If you’ve been thinking of ordering head over and get what you want, it may not be there tomorrow.
It’s been fun sharing week 1 of the challenge with you. I hope you’ve enjoyed it and found some ideas for yourself. Leave a comment and let me know what you think.
Until the next time
