Create28 With Carrie - Bright Colors


I'm still following along with Carrie of A Lovely Little Wardrobe and her Create28 challenge.  It's also day 41 of shopping my closet.  I haven't purchased a single item of clothing for 41 days - which is definitely a record for me.  I'm sure I'll end up buying a few things for spring, but for now I'm enjoying wearing pieces that haven't seen the light of day for awhile!

Today was create a bright colors look. With Valentine's Day almost here, I thought this red cardigan would be appropriate, and I like to wear red and pink together.  During the winter I tend to gravitate towards darker colors, so it was fun to put on such a bright outfit.

I'm also wearing my Wit & Wisdom denim, which have become my favorite pair of jeans I've ever owned.  Thankfully I purchased them in December before my shopping ban.  They are flattering, comfortable, and so soft, thanks to 18% rayon.  With just the right amount of skinny, they somehow don't stretch out like my other jeans.  I love them so much I've been wearing them several times a week.  Some reviews suggest ordering one size down, but I bought my regular size and have been very happy.

If you'd like to follow along with Carrie's Create28 outfits, be sure to head over to her blog and join us.

  2. Love the red and pink! So pretty and cheerful. I should add more bright colors to my wardrobe because I always gravitate to the darker muted colors. Bright feels like a breath of fresh air though! Great choices!!

  9. Ah, 41 days! I used to not be able to go seven, but since marriage and kids, I haven't been able to do that. It's hard to go long without buying cookies, though.
    I love your shopping ban and I love you in red!
