Day 28 of the 30 Day Wardrobe Challenge

(Still playing catch up-almost done) Each day of the last week of this challenge gets more difficult.  It begins with the challenge of figuring out what to wear each day then couple that with the inconsistent weather in the DC area and  not to mention having to take these photos everyday. (I don’t enjoy that) I’m excitedContinue reading “Day 28 of the 30 Day Wardrobe Challenge”

Day 25 of 30 Days 30 Outfits

One word for today H-O-T! It was sweltering this afternoon. Linen was the only fabric to be worn today. I wore a salmon colored suit I made a few years back and it was quite cool.
