21 Day Challenge: Day 6 - Unconventional
skirt as dress - Anne Klein, cardigan - Joe Fresh, belt - H&M, necklace - Jacob, shoes - Joe Fresh
Day 6's challenge was to wear an item in an unconventional way. This one had me stumped. I spent nearly an hour hauling stuff out of my closet trying to come up with an outfit that hadn't been done before in the bloggy world, and yet would still be something that I would be caught out of the house in.
In the end, after trying endless ways of wrapping my scarves, playing around with bathing suits in lieu of body suits (posting a picture of me in a bathing? Not gonna happen!), belts as necklaces, necklaces as belts, I finally gave up an settled on wearing my longest skirt (a midi) as a dress.
I thought I looked okay, but I've fooled myself before. I walked out of the bedroom and passed DH in the hallway who did a double take and said "You look niiiice!"
DH couldn't tell that this dress was actually a skirt and on top of that, one of his fave outfits on me of the summer! Homerun!
Just a side note: Apparently Maya is better at the unconventional challenge than I am. While I've been sitting here writing this post, she took my necklace which I'd left on the table and placed it on her head like a crown. I gotta say, it works!
