Challenge 4-4-4 Week 2

Saturday, October 11, 2014

When this here blog turned four years old I decided to mark the occasion with another wardrobe challenge. I chose four tops, four jumpers (or long sleeved / warmer options), four bottoms and four dresses (although 2 dresses where quickly discarded and are yet to be replaced) to be worn for 4 weeks. This is week 2...

Lots of chasing about running errands. I wore jeans, stripe top and added some colour with this scarf, the newest to my collection - I bought this in the summer, smitten with the colour - it's difficult to capture it but it's a pale neon - love it!

I sat reading in the sun in just this short sleeve top. I'm getting a little bored of not having a lot of colour so I added a smidgen with this Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine nail paint in Passion Fruit. I bought it to wear in the summer too but didn't get round to it, so before I move over to darker autumn shades I thought I'd give this a go.

Cold, wet, windy, dull and generally miserable weather. The only thing for it was a long sleeve t-shirt and a woollen poncho. And slippers.

I met a friend of coffee, the weather was dull and rainy again but I wanted to feel a little bit dressed up (this coffee was the highlight of my social life this week), so I popped on my black jeans, embroidered top and mac with a pretty necklace and sequined flats.

A quiet day working from home = grey jumper dress and leggings. I didn't think it was ever going to stop raining!

Green :) I also tried the braided tuck up-do from my messy hair post. Not an exact replica but I liked it none-the-less.

Back to the grey jumper dress and the necklace that my former colleagues called my 'Mr T' necklace. Finally it stopped raining and the sun came out for a while.

Another week over. Again it's been pretty easy and there are items that I'm still yet to wear. I'm wondering if this could be a rolling challenge? I could swap out some of the items every 4 weeks...? Let's see how I feel at the end of week 4 ;)

    1. It's a lovely top, such a great find for £9!!
      Today was good for sun, until the storms if course...

  2. I think this may be a great idea to do as a rolling thing - I'm just worried I'd get bored with wearing the same outfits.
