2 for 1

In an effort to maximize my wardrobe and minimize my need to shop, I am participating in not 1 but TWO different wardrobe challenges this week!

The first is the Summer Black-Out, hosted by Sal. The challenge is no black clothes from Monday June 7 to Monday June 14. This is actually pretty straight-forward, since summer months typically mean, for me at least, brighter colors in my clothes.

The second is the Summer Capsule Wardrobe, hosted by Jane. I just realized this challenge started on Friday June 4th, so I am behind - oops! Her challenge is a bit more difficult: 5 items of clothing for one week (or in my case, 5 day: from Monday June 7 to Friday June 11) with unlimited accessories and shoes. {ETA: I am not crazy after all; the challenge is really only 5 day 6/7-6/11, so I am right on track!}

2010 06 07 photoI am taking the easy route with this second challenge: I have chosen 3 tops (grey ruffle tank, cream colored blouse and peachy-pink top) and 2 bottoms (brownish pants and brown skirt). All these items have been previously worn. Hopefully my peeps at work won't notice I am wearing the same things this week!

shoes: Life Stride
shades: Tom Ford

Since I am off today, you can bet I will be wearing this outfit again during the week to work, only with dressier shoes.

It really did start today... it was just incorrect on that one post!

I like the idea of doing the blackout challenge too, and I didn't really choose any black for my capsule, so i guess I can!

Chic on the Cheap
