WIW: Donna's Valentine Challenge. ETA photos of 2 more outfits

I joined Donna's Valentine Challenge and then got distracted by making maximal outfits, which included some black or grey. The part about the grey did not register, so I will spend s couple of extra days on the challenge.
The first part has a floral theme. I do not have much in the way of winter florals, so this was a stretch.
This first (floral) section includes:
1/2: yellow/black/white maximal outfit with floral necklace.
3/4: blush/navy maximal outfit with floral/butterfly top and floral in scarf. Hardly any grey or black.
5-8: burgundy maximal outfit with floral top and lace in shoes and top. Red- based with minimal black or grey
9: floral top but light greys, no black
More recent red themed for Valentine's:
10-12: red-orange tunic sweater over light tan trousers and lots of gold, red jewelry. I wanted wide trousers for s change and this old pair of BR trousers came into play. Too dated? Not sure I liked them with flats or the longish sweater. No black or grey.
13/24: tomato red with white column, gold jewelry, tomato red KS bag. No grey or black.
I welcome your thoughts and suggestions, and plan to continue red or pink outfits for a couple more days. No black or grey.
ETA: 15-19 yesterday. Fushia pink with floral and navy.
20-21 today. Angie's ensemble inspiration for floral jacket in dark reds and pinks with striped white and navy tee, gold metallic sneakers and belt, and dark red jeans. If I go out, I'll use a metallic gold bag or navy and red ties fabric bag. I tried for some maximalization too.

    Excellent pattern mixing and I'm envying your necklaces, too.

    It looks like you are having lots of fun with this challenge.  Are you surprised at how many outfits you were able to create with what you already own?  I always enjoy when a wardrobe challenge gets me to realize new outfit combinations in my wardrobe.

    Of course, the bumblebee outfit is fab, but I also really like the red and white outfit. Even though it's a Valentine's outfit, it seems really fresh snd spring like.

    It's been so much fun - and inspirational - to see what you have done with these challenges!

    Thank you all for your comments. Sorry to be so brief. We have been watching our 2 year old DGS for several days plus an extra (big) dog to walk and head cold so I'm energy deprived.
    Lisa, I am surprised at all the possible outfits that I could put together from my closet. Fun!
    Ryce, I'm beyond thrilled to be inspirational to you!

    Just love this challenge. Gives me warm fuzzies about Valentines. This is the way to celebrate it!

    Thank you , Rachylou. I added the last 2 outfits from this challenge where I tried for no black or grey. Underwear is just a silly extra for Valentines
