This challenge had me thinking about:
Dating Jeanie versus married Jeanie.
How I purchase items based on my colour swatch.
Shopping my wardrobe for outfit combinations.
For the first time in ages, Mr Inspired & I went out on a Saturday night. Thirty minutes prior leaving I jumped into action. Put a brush through my hair, slapped on some make-up (just the basics). And wore something nice.
'Dating Jeanie' would have spent 90 minutes doing her hair and make-up. Fussing about what to wear. Dating Jeanie dressed to impressed. Married Jeanie had gotten comfortable. I spent longer preparing for this photo shot then I did for Saturday night. Oh dear!
I would have preferred to wear this outfit with a chocolate coloured pencil skirt (which I don't currently have). The tunic base colour and tights are brown. Finishing the outfit with a chocolate skirt would've looked classy! I shopped my wardrobe and came up with the next best thing.
Colour anyone? I love that there is no black in this outfit! Slowly but surely I have become colour-brave, and there is no looking back. There was a time I wondered 'do I look like a clown?' Wearing colour can take time to adjust to. Now if I can wear colour, I do. It just looks better.
Having my colours done in 2010, was one of the smartest things I've ever done! Every purchase I make now, I know will suit me. If it doesn't blend with my swatch, I don't buy it, simple. I was always scared to wear red. Now I know a watermelon red works best for me.
