I am such a plotter and planner. I love it, absolutely and completely. Of course, I hold those plans loosely in one hand as I wait and watch what unfolds each day but life's twists and turns don't keep me from dreaming and scheming about what the future holds. I had so many things floating around in my head that it was hard to concentrate on the here and now but now that I've written them down with an erasable pencil, I can fully focus on the season in front of me. Are you like that, too?
And that includes Fashion Wednesday. I actually took pictures for the Build Your Basics Wardrobe Challenge twice last week. One casual and one a little dressier.
The casual challenge clothes consisted of a grey cardigan, striped tee, skinny jeans and riding boots. I have to tell you that this outfit was way out of my comfort zone but one of the great things about a challenge like this is trying styles that you normally wouldn't and the skinny jeans and riding boots are definitely not a look I would have tried. But I was actually okay with it.
The boots were a gift from husband during the Fall challenge that sat in my closet looking cute for two months. They were super comfy and I felt quite stylish in them and not at all like I was trying to look too young which was my biggest fear.
The dressier challenge clothes consisted of a dressy blouse, long necklace, boot cut jeans and heeled boots. This one was much easier because it is an outfit I could have put together myself. Totally in my comfort zone. I loved pairing the dressy blouse and my $2.98 thrift store pearls with jeans. I wore this to my bible study Christmas potluck and felt like a million bucks.
Now go and take a look at how the other bloggers styled these basics and be sure to leave them an encouraging word. It's not easy to take a picture of yourself and put it out there for all to see.
I'll be back soon with a peek at my Christmas decorations and to share what I'm learning about hospitality. Thanks for stopping by...
