This time the jeans are dark olive full length with a leaf motif necklace that was my mother’s and wider leg dark denim jeans with orange and a leaf motif small silk square scarf. The felted wool orange jacket was thrifted last year. It is Petite Sophisticate and I will put on black or dark brown snow boots if I go out in 5 or more inches of new snow. The silk striped orange top is cold shoulder but worn over black silk long underwear. I will keep the jacket on.

Today I am trying to show a jeans outfit for Jess ( KUT From the Kloth with side stripe detail of black faux leather and a fall accessory for Katerina of a large silver leaf pendant worn on a chunky silver chain. The pullover is welted and worn with a bit of a side tuck to create a diagonal line across the front. I wore a black open textured pullover, navy sparkly socks and pewter booties and bag. (1-3).
Yesterday, the pictures ( 4-6) are mainly to show the black Hoxton released hem jeans from last year’s NAS with taupe...EF silk long sleeved simple top with a taupe faux leather open jacket, also from last year’s NAS, and taupe suede SE booties, taupe leather tote and scarf with color block design of taupe, black and grey. The silk top was worn tucked under the jacket. I felt the neutrals looked seasonal and the scarf has an autumn look
I still have some prompts that I have not used and am wearing some extra things for the first time, so a new prompt.
The first outfit features my challenge to wear mismatched earrings and a never yet worn top (blue denim) plus using a button down shirt ( the new top) to build an outfit.
#2-mismatched orange earrings from the Denver Botanical Gardens gift shop.
#1 and #3 - outfit as a whole. Silver ECCO sneakers and KS silver bag
Worn to teach a religion class, so Our Lady of Guadalupe socks (#4) from convenience store in Japan
Outfit 2: the prompts were to wear a bottom for the first time ( EF navy window pane check wide legs) and a pattern mix with plaid and floral (photo#5)( pants and scarf). I also included a prompt for wide legs with fitted top ( 7/8).
Outfit 3: the prompt was to wear a skirt with booties and a new prompt, to wear these new booties and a dress/ skirt for church. This outfit also went to a play “ Dear Sugar” with the unlikely format of letters from an advice column. It was a success and difficult real life themes like divorce and death of a child and much more.
Photos 10/11 are the outfit ( EF pullover and skirt), poncho that was a gift, and the new booties (#12). I was comfortable and wore micro mini nude fishnets on my legs. The black EF skirt was consignment but is a heavy knit tube skirt that does not cling. I wore a small silk scarf for more texture.
The booties were comfortable. I like the pale snake texture with the poncho, especially.
Outfit 4: I think this is blah and a fail. The prompt was to wear grey and orange together. (#13). I added an olive jacket (#14) and then my museum scarf (#15) in an effort to make the outfit more me.
I welcome your comments and ideas for change and/or improvement. Thank you for looking.
Here are the latest 3 challenge outfits.
1/2: worn Sunday to church and out to brunch. An Express thrifted dress with consignment jacket and sale white booties. The challenge was dress with booties. Is the jacket best fastened or open? Is this dress too short for me?
#3-5: This outfit shows the challenge of pairing a floral with plaid. The patterns are shown best in #5. It also shows a top I have not worn before and booties with jeans I bought the top because the colors worked with my fall/ winter wardrobe. It happens to be another gathered sleeve top with a small neckline bow. It was not as full as I thought or it would also be full top over slim pants.
6-8: the challenge here was warm top, cool bottom and 2 necklaces and necklace with a scarf. EF black Ponte pants with Plieone tie front top and thrifted yellow (Talbots) loafers, thrifted aqua bag. Scarf is from the early 80’s or before and is a light mustard yellow background.
Are any of these experiments worth repeating? Suggestions?
