I don’t think I’ve thought about my clothes this hard or this strategically in ages. But, thanks to Felicia’s 15:30 Closet Challenge, I did. It’s not fall here yet, nor will it be in the month of September unless there is a SERIOUS act of G-d, but I’m so very tired of summer clothes. The closest I will get to fall is in colors – and so that is my palette.
The Fall by Denial 2010 Collection, by Pam.
So, for the month of September I will come to love or hate the following choices:
Urban Outfitters Black/White Silk blouse. This is a recent purchase from my trip to Las Vegas. I am most excited to play with this piece for both dressy and casual ensembles.
Black boatneck tank top. This is just a good blocking and tackling piece and it a GREAT backdrop for accessories of all types.
Maggie London silk swirl dress. I have some dressier events this month and this is a favorite go-to dress. You’ll also see it as a belted tunic I’m guessing over some pants or jeans. Best part? It has pockets!
Old Navy full shorts in caramel and black. It’s hot here. Also I can wear these with heels and go out if I happen to have a social life in September.
XCVI army green skirt. I found this at Nordstrom last year and it is very fun to wear. I wanted a piece with some texture in it for the challenge and this can be worn casually dressy or just run to the store plain.
Banana Republic denim shirt. This is another favorite new purchase because the options with this are ENDLESS.
Banana Republic army green cropped cargos. These are actually sort of linen-y in feel, but not lightweight. They go casual to dressy as well and I love them.
Banana Republic black wide-leg pants. You gotta have a pair of wide-leg black pants in here, right?
Tresics grey silky t-shirt. This is a recent find at TJMaxx actually and it has become an instant favorite. On trend in color and lightweight for still warm weather I love the shirt very, very much.
Abercrombie & Fitch dark skinny jeans. Because you have to have jeans in this rotation – heat be damned.
Mossimo black jersey kimono dress. I bought this as Target fully intending to wear it as a bathing suit cover up and it quickly became a great little dress and tunic. I love the neckline on it.
Not pictured because they don’t exist yet or are too boring to photograph:
Gap white t-shirt
Crisp white button down
Black pencil skirt
I’m pretty sure this is the final selection. Now if you’d all collectively pray for some fall weather, that’d be fantastic. In the meantime, stay tuned! The challenge launches September 1.
You should really do this. Will you join me? Or at least root me on?
