Wardrobe Capsule Challenge -- outfit 1

Yay, today's the first day of the Wardrobe Capsule Challenge as suggested by Jane of WorkThatWardrobe!

I'm wearing a brownish-beige Merona sheath style dress from Target sort of as a jumper, along with a blue scarf from a discount store as a belt. The faux silver & pearl pin is also from Target. Underneath the dress is a navy satin blouse from NY&Co. The brown Maryjanes are secondhand. The blue tights are from the good old A&P market (yeah, really!)

Just to reiterate from my previous post, my chosen 10 wardrobe pieces are:

Sheath dress, beige/brown
Skirt, black & white print
Jeans, dark wash
Blouse, navy satin
Blouse, green pin tuck w/removable tie
Vest, plum argyle sweater
Cardigan, black, blue & plum striped
Camisole, black w/lace trim
Boots, dark espresso
Shoes, brown MaryJanes

My chosen 5 accessories are:

Pin, faux pearl & silver
Belt, black wide
Scarf, shades of blue
Necklace, green wooden beads
Purse, black shoulder bag

(Aside from my daily undergarments I also will wear a pair of plum & a pair of navy tights.)

I can't wait to check out all the other wonderful bloggers participating in this and see what they've come up with!!!

See ya tomorrow :)

Thank you kass, I'm so glad you like it! Wasn't Jane's idea a great one :)

Jean said...

Looking good there! Good luck for the rest of the week.

Jane said...

I love the belt and it has given me a few ideas for a similar dress I own. Great look!

Kayleigh said...

Thanks notSupermum, thanks Jane :)

I've never used a scarf as a belt before, but it saved me another accessory so I sort of went with it, lol.

Good luck to you too!

Great look, love the colors!

Kayleigh said...

Thanks Lady D -- it's funny...we must have been commenting on eachother's blogs at the same time, lol! And I complimented YOU on your use of color, too :D

Trace said...

Looks great K! I really love how you're wearing the dress over the blouse! Those colors are awesome together. And that scarf as a belt is perfect!

Sheila said...

Great outfit - I am doing similar colours this week! You can't go wrong with blue and brown.

This is a great dress on you - the belt really makes it. So clever to use a scarf...

Erica said...

You look fabulous! I'll be excited to see the rest of this week.

Really looking forward to seeing the rest of your outfits for the week. Thanks for visiting my blog :-D

Kayleigh said...

Thanks all!!!

Trace -- you know, that dress is sort of a bland color, and I almost didn't get it because I thought it might wash me out, ya know? But in the store it was near some jeans and the colors popped together, and an outfit was born :)

Sheila -- I noticed we are doing similar colors, in fact as I posted on your blog this a.m. I think your outfit yesterday was the BEST, I really loved it!

Erica -- thanks so much (and btw, those polka dot tights are too cute!)

Spiragirl -- you're welcome, and thanks! I'm looking forward to seeing your outfits, too!
