Daily: Colorblocked

As I’m currently writing this, all I can think about is Harry Potter. I’m on the last book, the last 150 pages. So needless to say, my mind is elsewhere right now. Luckily for you, Tumblr friends, this was not the case when I got dressed this morning. At least, I don’t think so. Here’s the breakdown:

Dress (as skirt): Elder Beerman
Sweater: Garage sale (Ann Taylor LOFT)
Tights: TJ Maxx (Nine West)
Boots: Shi by Journeys
Necklace: Gift
Clutch: Gift

I love this mini challenge for two reasons. 1) I’d probably never thought to layer a sweater over a dress. Thank you, Alexa Chung, for doing it so brilliantly with your Louis Vuitton dress earlier this year. 2) I’d probably never wanted to pair rust-colored tights with a green sweater with a black dress. It’s just not me, but that’s what this challenge is all about. Finding new ways to remix clothes because the same outfit twice is just boring.
