I finished Sal’s challenge of 3 (ways) x 10 pieces ( Bottoms) I. 30 days.
This was a valuable challenge because most of my bottoms were new to me since last summer, so I needed to find what worked. My mistake was including only one skirt and should have included 2 or 3 as I try to wear a frock at least twice a week.
the first is another styling of the Citron black silk clam diggers.(First 3 photos) Over it is a Talbots black linen straight shirt dress worn open as a duster. It is worn over an animal print lined silky sleeveless top, new espadrille slip ons from Target that are tan/white with black toe caps and a sun hat and black daisy necklace and earrings. My hair is put up in a bun under the hat. I was going for a safari look. The outfit was fine for my day, A Sunday outfit with lots of time outside with grandchildren. The sun was out much of the day and the hat and sunnies were needed, as was the warmth of the dress/ duster.
. Another piece that needed wearing was the Chico’s white utility pants or my shorts. This time they were worn with an EF thrifted striped linen top ( white and navy stripe), an EF old navy knit zip front jacket, a black and tan small bag, and navy and black bead necklace and pearls and black and navy athletic slip on sneakers. This was sort of a fail because the striped to was too short but a white tank under it saved the day. (#8/9). I also needed to wear a late entry, the Chico’s coral pants a couple of times. This could be filed under brights and made me happy. The whole outfit is from consignment stores except the EF espadrilles from last year. (#10/11). Later I added a second coral necklace much like the first but fuller. The last outfit is the coral pants with peach and red also with nude EF espadrilles. The peach did not blend as well with coral as I’d hoped. A gifted button-down peach sleeveless top was worn open over a lighter peach knit top. (#12/13)
