What is COTD, you may be wondering…
Well, it stands for Colors of the Day and it is a super fun daily challenge hosted by a fabulously stylish couple in Oregon, Mercedes and Andy. Every Monday through Friday, they choose 2 colors/patterns/themes and challenge us to post photos of outfits, art work, nature, just about anything really, that combines the two colors, patterns, or themes. Not only are the challenges fun, but they get you thinking and being creative with your closet. And…the members of the group who participate are probably the most sincere, most genuine, most creative, most colorful, most supportive, and kindest group of people you will likely encounter in this day and age!
I had been participating regularly in the COTD challenges back in the Spring (you can see some of those blog posts here, here, here, and here). But then I strayed for some reason…partly because it almost becomes an obsession! But then the amazing Anne M. Bray of SpyGirl discovered what fun was involved and wrote a blog post about it (here). Well, that is all I needed to bring me back to the
dark colorful side!
And today’s outfit is my interpretation of Sky Blue and Highlighter Yellow! For more fabulous outfit ideas, do stop by Facebook and Instagram and see all the magnificence you have been missing out on!
I also just this week started creating Pinterest boards to save even more colorful interpretations of the chosen colors of the day! I only have three boards so far but each will be labeled COTD Style Challenge with the color theme following in the title. Feel free to pin any images that you would like to these boards!
Dress: Old Navy Printed Shift Dress (This print is no longer available).
Scarf: Burlington Coat Factory (Quite old).
Leggings: LC Lauren Conrad Solid Leggings for Kohl’s.
Boots: Steve Madden (These are my wedding boots, so they are at least 7 years old).
How do you stay inspired to shop your closet? What do you do to keep it interesting? How do you make getting dressed fun?
