Week Four: CTC & Link-Up

And just like that the Common Threads Challenge is over as we bid October good-bye and welcome November. Oh my goodness! The holidays are most certainly {almost} upon us. Before posting my looks, I just have to confess that I really struggled with this challenge. In my quest to remix some pieces in my closet that should have been very easy, I found they weren't my favorite pieces and I struggled on and off during the month.

It's another week of the looks that I put together for the Common Threads Challenge. I'm trying to be creative and remix my wardrobe using my five pieces but I have to admit that I'm no pro with this one. Trying to keep it real and stick with it until the end. Here's what I've been wearing lately. {DAY 18: striped tee & mules} {DAY 19: black skinnes} Truth on this look is these aren't my black skinnies that I started the challenge wearing.

It's here! Today is the first link-up for Common Thread Challenge. I'm excited to reveal the pieces that I've chosen to use to remix throughout my wardrobe. They look something like these but you'll see the real things throughout this month. My choices are: black skinny pants, white and black striped tee, black skater skirt, chambray shirt and mules. My first look on Sunday consisted of wearing only the mules from the chosen pieces. I wore this look to church. On the way home ... Continue Reading...
