Week One: CTC


It’s the second link-up for the Common Threads Challenge and I’m happy to sharing my looks so far. Since we started on October 1, I thought I would go ahead and share some repeats before I get to the new looks. My five pieces include: black skinnies, black skater skirt, chambray shirt, striped tee and mules.

There you go! All ten of my looks so far this month. What have I learned so far? Well, I would have been better to not pick the mules. I wear them every day anyway. A while back I rolled my foot and these were the only shoes that were comfortable and versatile. Hence, I’ve been wearing them almost every day already. Hindsight is always 20/20 isn’t it…so in the words of Tim Gunn, “Make it work!”

Well, friends are you participating in this challenge? If so, how’s it going? If not, you can still join in!

Hope you have the best day!

Be blessed, Carrie

  • So so cute!! I love your mules. I haven't tried mules myself because I was afraid they wouldn't look good on my short legs, but they look so good on you! Brooke pumps and push-ups
  • Love the camo cami outfit...actually I love them all, but you shouldn't be surprised there

    Oh, I'm loving these looks - especially the chambray and the skirts. Too cute! Lauren www.shootingstarsmag.net
  • I think you made such smart picks Carrie! All of these work so well and remix beautifully! And I don't think it's a bad thing that you picked shoes that you wear a lot anyway--they do look like great shoes!
  • Okay I love the red top! So many ways to wear it and such a versatile piece! http://www.mylittlenest.org
  • Kellyann
    Carrie I think you were brilliant to pick a pair of shoes you already wear often. I am struggling because I chose a couple of pieces that stand out and although I am wearing them with different bottoms it feels too similar to me. In retrospect I wish I'd chosen a bracelet or booties, oh well! I love all of your outfits, you look fab in everything! xo, Kellyann
  • That top in the last two looks is really a beautiful color on you! It drapes so nicely too. You're also inspiring me to do a few outfits with my slip on sneakers!
  • Lisa Richardson
    You are doing such an awesome job of mixing your choices in. You continue to look darling!!!
  • You're adorable - love you in stripes!
  • I would wear those mules every day too - they make every outfit so cool! This whole set of photos is really inspiring me right now - this simple and classic but super chic style is exactly what I want to portray. You've got so many great classic pieces with perfectly placed pops of color. I'm going to be copying these left and right... if only I had some mules :)
  • Carrie @ Curly Crafty Mom
    I don't think there is an outfit here that I don't love. My fave is Day 4 with the chambray skirt with the button down top and I love Day 5 with the black skinnies, mules, the striped tee and utility vest! I need to pin that one! Carrie curlycraftymom.com
  • I agree with Carrie, there isn't an outfit I don't like. That red slightly ruffle sleeve top is the cutest EVER! Every outfit is perfect.
