Spring Capsule Wardrobe Challenge - Day 5 - Last Day - and RoundUP

Well today is the last day of the challenge and I think I am a little glad to see it go. I realized that I like variety. I noticed that there were a few other challengers who were getting tired of the same choices as well.
So for today's look, I wasnt sure if I wanted to wear the vest open or closed.
Which look do you prefer?

Today's Outfit
Black slacks - FashionBug
Boots - NineWest
White Shirt - LaneBryant
Flower pin - DressBarn
Vest - LaneBryant
I wore the vest closed. I like the way that it pulls my waist in.

Here is a list of things I noticed or would change if I decide to do the challenge again:

1. leave that purse out as a accessory - I still forgot to add that into the pic for today. Oh, well, again that purse is for function not accessory.

2. choose a better color pallete - I think my colors were a little boring. I did have that lime cardi, but it didnt really add anything to the looks. To it was just blocks of color.

3. possibly not choose a striped shirt - I love my striped shirt, but i feel like I had to wear it to often which makes me not want to wear it.

4. I like random and possibility - I like the fact that I can change mind. Being apart of the challenge, I dont think my choices had enough variety. I kept feeling if I changed a look, it really was only a small variation of the other looks. Nothing really stood out as its own look.

So the next time, Will I do the challenge??.. maybe or maybe not. Im not sure. But it was fun! It was more fun to see the looks that everyone else came up with, because their stuff was waaaay better than mine. I think most of their looks were so varied from day to day. And the interesting thing is, I still have a few more looks that I could pull from this collection. I have to do a few errands over the weeked, so maybe I will add a few of those looks in for honorable mention. Who knows, now that I have a choice (rather than a goal), its different. I may actually want to wear more of these looks. .. But atleast, I am done, and I can say that I finished.

Here is the round up of my daily looks for this week.
Which was your favorite?

I really like the last two looks of the challenge. The stripes with the lime really popped. And honestly I liked the vest both ways. It's a good silhouette for you.

I LOVE the grey with the Jeans. Though you look so good in the green. But I am a New Yorker so I lean towards greys and blacks

Kari said...

I really love that you featured such a pretty apple green shade in your challenge! My favorite day was the one with the pretty embellished cardigan and the pencil skirt.
