CTC Week 3

Well it’s week 3 of the Common Threads Challenge.  Since I’ve decided to comply 5 of 7 days each week I feel a lot better.  Somedays the pieces I chose just won’t work and rather than beat myself up about it I gave myself permission to do the best I can.

My favorite outfit from this week was what I wore on Saturday.  I was up early for a full day of Vex Robotics.  My olive cargo pants were perfect paired with a sleeveless red top. I bought the top at Loft over the Summer and it’s no longer in stock. This one is similar. My necklace  was the perfect accessory. I wore flat leopard sandals. Perfect for a day of competition and then dinner out with my husband. I’m also showing it with my booties because it was windy the day we actually shot these photos and I wanted to look like I was ready for Fall!  Ha! With my sleeveless top, lol.
And a quick bathroom selfie from Saturday!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The second outfit of the week I really liked as well because I’m taking a Summer dress and making it Fall appropriate!  Remember when I wore it this way?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

By adding my cargo vest (similar) and my Toms open toe booties it transitions perfectly! Take a look, in one I left the sleeves off the shoulder and in the other I pulled them up:

The third outfit I am sharing today features my striped top. Because the embroidered bird and flowers are so colorful it is easy to mix and match with all kinds of bottoms. I chose an old pair of mustard colored jeans (similar) – they are years old – from Kohl’s. I am wearing my favorite wedges . It’s a simple, easy, and comfortable outfit for work. What makes it easy? There’s no need for a necklace because of the embroidered detailing on the top and I wore simple stud earrings. The top is a nice, sturdy fabric and it runs a little big. Although I am wearing a small I should have grabbed an extra small. I’ve washed it and it didn’t shrink at all.

So that’s what I am sharing from week 3, I can hardly believe it’s already the middle of October! I am hoping November brings us cooler weather but I’ll settle for a drop in the humidity. Until then I’ll keep wearing clothes to keep cool. How about you? Is it finally feeling like Fall where you live? Every year around this time I start craving scarves, sweaters, booties, you know all things Fall. I have found that mixing a few Fall touches with some of my favorites from Spring & Summer help satiate me.
