So, it’s been a while since I posted about my progress on my 50 shades days of no grey. The challenge started on April 1st and will end on May 20th. Next week.
I have to say that this year, I was not nearly as successful as I was last year. I’ll blame the weather, the clothes in my closet and the clothes in my closet. But really, it was me. I was feeling lazy and blah.
However, the past couple weeks have been a little bit more successful as you will see by these photos:
So, just a quick update to show that colour has returned and to let you know that my sad grey cardigan will soon be banished to the upper shelves of my closet.
I will try to make the last 5 days of my challenge worthwhile and way more interesting for both you and me.
About 4 years ago, I became a stay at home mom. I would have to say my “work clothes” have sometimes been questionable due to this change in status. Most days, I would get it right (or close), and there are other days, when I should not have left the house.
Since starting our 50 Day challenge, I have to say I have 90% more good days than not. Except for yesterday. My son was home sick from school, and since I couldn’t go anywhere, I ended up like this:
Tired grey hoodie and great grey sweats from Lululemon.
But today was different! Since I had a visit to a friend’s house and errands to run, my fairy godmother made me look like this:
Since this project is mainly about clothes, I thought I should post some pictures from my weekend. Yes, you will see a bit of grey, but otherwise there is some colour!
This weekend, I wore my new fav Hudson jeans most of the time and switched up the tops and scarfs.
The first photo shows a blue and white striped cardigan that I found at J Crew outlet. In the second photo, I have on my fav Lululemon sweat pants and yes, they are grey and oh so comfortable! The third photo is with my Pantone inspired boyfriend shirt and Toms. Lastly, I re-worked the first outfit by changing the to a jacket but keeping the scarf which has several great shades of blue.
I even had 2 compliments on the colours I was wearing and this never happened while I wore grey. Hmmmm. Things that make you say hmmmm…..
Today I love what I’m wearing. Starting with, my new Hudson cropped jeans, striped lululemon shirt, my new scarf (which I showed in an earlier post) and the icing on the cake, my new flats in a colour I call Tiffany blue.
