Day 1 — Pink Party

In case you missed it, yesterday I posted that I’m participating in the Color Rotation Challenge, hosted by Colleen from Scrap and Run. It’s the perfect challenge for me: Wear whatever color is the established color for that day. Brilliant. Simple and easy to follow, but still fun, because you’re still doing it with a bunch of other people.

Today was day one, pink. I have plenty of cute pink things to wear: dresses, skirts, what have you. But, sadly, some of the snow from yesterday was still hanging around, so I ended up dragging out a sweater again. I told you I have the same American Eagle sweater in four colors… bet you didn’t expect to see it two days in a row, did you? Hot pink this time.

I know I wore almost this same outfit yesterday, but it works for our weather. Yesterday, it was warm enough to keep me from freezing in the snow; today, it was still warm but light enough that I could go without an actual coat. The shoes were a bad call; I wasn’t in the mood for boots, so I went with my 4-year-old casual Sketcher things. I figured I would be okay because the snow is mostly gone; I forgot that melting snow causes puddles. Wet feet!

And, because I have to point it out, look at my scarf! Look at me wearing scarves two days in a row! I am getting the hang of this, guys. Hardcore.

It’s light and gauzy and springy and I love it. Plus? It was only $5 at Walmart. Can’t beat that.

So, day one, success. I wish it could have been springier, but I think I kept it bright and floral enough to work for March. Next time, a dress.

      Thanks, Colleen! I loved your day 1 — I am a terrible color mixer, I would not have been able to rock the pink shirt with the green necklace. You mentioned a “color coach” — what is that? Where can I get one?
      The scarf, as I mentioned, was a $5 find at Walmart over the weekend — you could probably get one! They had it in black and gray, too, with the same flower colors. I resisted the urge to buy all three. 🙂
