21 Day Challenge Begins!

Hi Ya'll!
Hope everyone had a fantastic weekend.  It was chainsaw city around our neighborhood as everyone cleaned up after the big storm that blew through here.
I hope you were able to do something a bit more exciting than rake wood chips and stack logs.

Today is day #1 of the 21 Day Challenge over on Freckles In April.

Our challenge today was to pick out an item we would like to remix 3 times over the challenge.
I have decided to chose my khaki,linen, wide leg trousers.
I haven't worn them much and they are so comfortable and cool.
 I know they wrinkle like crazy, but isn't that what linen is supposed to do?
I paired it with a soft plum blouse with gold threads and an open weave gray sweater that has gold threads shot through it as well.
I added a blue belt and some blue accessories to give a little pop of color to the muted palette.
I also decided after taking these pictures that I am in need of a hair cut! 
 I am going in tomorrow. 
 I promise I won't be coming back with a Emma Watson pixie,
 but maybe something different if I get up the courage. 
 Oh, who am I kidding... you probably won't even be able to tell I got it cut.

Have a great Monday and go check out the other 21 day challengers.

I really really really love that blouse. SO pretty. And those pants will be such a great remix item!

Rebecca said...

I like the blouse, and linen is definitely supposed to wrinkle.

Kassie Rew said...

That blouse is so nice!

The pants were a good choice!

I am not a fan of linen pants...but I love the blouse...it is beautiful!!  I look forward to following your challenge...maybe by the end of it, I will not be so skeptical of linen.

So many of my blogger friends are taking part in this challenge.  I think this sounds like a great idea.  The bow is a great addition to the outfit, and I love the neutral colors.

You are such a remixing queen- I can't wait to see what you come up with! I love these trousers and you styled it perfectly- very summer in the Hamptons! I'm getting bored of my hair- not sure if I want a dramatic cut or colour!

I'm excited to see the ways you remix these pants.  And I love, love the blue belt!

Deborah said...

I love that tie blouse. The color is awesome as well!

Lisa Harsma said...

silvrgurl said...

Summer in the Hamptons! I like that

silvrgurl said...

silvrgurl said...

I have so many comments on the blouse
I should have chosen that to remix
