WhoWhatWear 30 Day Wardrobe Challenge // Day 16 // Monochrome in a Bright Color

I don’t know if oxblood counts as a bright color, but it’s pretty bright for me!  I have snippets of bright colors in my wardrobe, but I definitely trend towards more basic colors.  With the exception of green.  LOVE just about every shade of green, but I didn’t really want to look like a frog 🙂

Side note.  I’m getting way more comfortable whipping out my tripod and taking these selfies, but this is a very busy running trail.  On a nice sunny day, you can just imagine the comments I was getting…Blog Vintage Leather Jacket Lanston Tee True Religion Suede Skinny Frye Booties-1 Blog Vintage Leather Jacket Lanston Tee True Religion Suede Skinny Frye Booties-2 Blog Vintage Leather Jacket Lanston Tee True Religion Suede Skinny Frye Booties-3 Blog Vintage Leather Jacket Lanston Tee True Religion Suede Skinny Frye Booties-4 Blog Vintage Leather Jacket Lanston Tee True Religion Suede Skinny Frye Booties-5 Blog Vintage Leather Jacket Lanston Tee True Religion Suede Skinny Frye Booties-6Um, Mom, where are the bubbles you promised??

WhoWhatWear 30 Day Wardrobe Challenge // Day 15 // 3 Levels of Layering

 It seems funny that I was so overwhelmed by this challenge at first.  I’ve been loving seeing other people’s takes on the challenge on Instagram too.  It’s what I love most about fashion.  Different people can wear almost the same look, yet look completely different.  That also means that you don’t have to shy away from something because you don’t think you could pull it off or it’s not you.  Make it you! 🙂  I had actually thought of a completely different outfit at first, but then it turned out to be 55-yay!  But…that didn’t exactly work with the silk top/sweater/jacket combo I had in mind.  So, I went with lighter layers…Blog Juicy Jacket HM Top Joes Jeans Born Booties-1Love how this top is sheer in the back.
