4-4-4 Week 1Sunday, October 05, 2014
First up, thank you for all the kind comments on my previous post. I hesitated a little before I hit publish but I should have known you'd be kind and understanding. I feel better about things, having decided to talk it over when the right time presents itself.
So, week 1 of challenge 4-4-4.
I guess I should start by listing the items in the challenge?
Short sleeve black and white stripe top / long sleeve navy and white stripe top / white embroidered top / grey jumper
Distressed skinny jeans / black skinny jeans / bootcut jeans / pink maxi skirt
The long sleeves / warmer options
Green cardigan / longline tweedy jacket / khaki mac / black poncho
Chambray dress / grey sweater dress...
The final two options were this khaki dress and this navy dress, however I've decided against these.
The navy one because it is a summer dress, looks fab with sandals and bare legs but not tights and boots. And the khaki dress because I put it on and though 'yuck!' and promptly put it in the charity bag (one less item in the wardrobe can only be a good thing).
So, these last two items remain 'open'. I'd like to add two more dresses but I think warm tops would be a better idea. But I'm undecided as yet.
Saturday, day one. An easy outfit of top and jeans with a few bracelets.
Day two, not a pretty sight. All I could manage was jeans and a jumper and a comforting scarf.
After an impromptu evening out with some old college friends on Saturday night (20 years since we started our degree course together!!) I didn't get out of bed until mid afternoon on Sunday and only got dressed so that I could drive to my Mum's house for a roast dinner. What is it about a roast that can diminish a hangover so effectively?
Day three, Monday, Monday.
Feeling slightly more human I had a meeting so out came my new-to-me longline jacket, a bargain at £4.50 from a charity shop. I promise a better photo next time.
Day four was a quiet day spent in green. I love wearing long sleeve tops under things with 3/4 length sleeves, I don't know why, I just do.
Day five, Wednesday, saw some colour and the first outing of my new top - £9 in the New Look sale.
Thursday and Friday where spent working at home, the first dress of the challenge making an appearance.
So, the first week is up. It felt pretty easy although the thought occurred to me that if it turns really cold I'm going to have to break some rules or spend a lot of time covered in goosebumps. Take a guess at which one I'll choose?
Hope you've had a lovely weekend.
