These are some of the outfits I managed to get together during the last part of the month long challenge. I got so busy with the kids starting school and activities, I missed getting the photos for the rest. It didn’t matter because I still had enough to mix and match and I still learnt the most valuable lessons from the challenge.
1. Variety – I like to have variety as I have never been the type to wear the same sort of clothes day in day out and in this challenge although I had a mix of dresses, skirts and trousers, they were too similar in colour and texture to make it an interesting enough variety.
2. Accessories – I’ve never been an accessories sort of person and easily feel cluttered BUT as I’ve grown older I really, really need to have accessories that I truly love to finish off my outfits. I guess I’ve been afraid to use too many but as my taste is classic all the way, accessories are the way for me to make my look truly me.
3. Fit & Proportion (again!) – I am lacking in simple knit and jersey tops (plain tees and sweaters) that are waist length so I can just wear them out rather than having to tuck in all the time (which I can’t do with sweaters anyway because it’s too bulky.)
