Day 5-The End

outfit 5.1

4+9+1+3+5+*(Kenneth Cole boots)+knee highs

Blogging on a Friday afternoon is like slamming a door out of anger in an empty house... no one is around to care. I don't usually post at this time, a nice glass of red wine holds a stronger pull than blogging on the weekends, but I just want to finish off my capsule challenge.
I quite like today's outfit, but then again the weather is so nice outside, I'm pretty sure I'd like tie-dye tights and a polyester, asymmetrically hemmed skirt in this sunshine. The plaid shirt has definitely been the star of the wardrobe challenge...long enough to be worn as an almost tunic, light enough to be tucked into anything, blue enough to be cheery and yet, neutral enough to work with lots of options. I'm going to go ahead an give my shirt a metaphorical high-five for being so awesome...
The wardrobe challenge was surprisingly fun. I ended up not using one of the belts I selected and the heels were perhaps not the most practical choice for a winter weekday, but overall I'm happy with the variety of looks. I feel like I could have gone on a couple days and tried more combinations. But I'm not going to go on... my other clothes are shedding tears because they miss me and my weekend plans call for extravagance. Yes ma'am, I'm pumped for my weekend! Blogging everyday was tiring...whine, whine...haha, now I must wine, wine to recover... Yeah, that was bad.

Please indulge me for a moment and tell me your favourite look this week...

Have a great weekend

Biba said...

All your outfits were great but I'm picking Wednesday as my favourite. I've been taking part in the challenge as well and I'm doing the weekend!

Have fun with your weekend outfits (I'm sure my 'other' clothes miss me as well...)!

Sal said...

A perfect capsule, and such varied looks created from it.

Alex said...

They're all great but I think I like Thursday best - perhaps it's the glasses?

Fabulocity in Amish Country said...

I think I like the last 3 the best... very hard to pick a fav... but maybe number 4?? You look awesome all the time soooo... :)

An Affair With Fashion said...

Tuesday! I'm inspired to try something like that with my thrifted sparkly cardigan now!

KP said...

They all look super great but I'm really loving your Wednesday outfit...

God's Favorite Shoes! said...

I'm digging Thursday's look the most

FashionTheorist said...

Oooh, a tough call between Tuesday's look and Wendesday's. In the end, I have to come down on the side of Tuesday: I'm still loving the pretty-tough combo of sparkly shrug and leather jacket.

Have a great weekend! That glass of wine sounds like an excellent idea...

amanda said...

ooh, i'm looking forward to some wine tonight too. i still have a couple hours before i can get my drink on though. as much as i love today's outfit, i do think wednesday is my favorite. it's those tights. they are super awesome.

Nadine said...

My fave look is Monday by far (LOVE IT!!!). Second place Wednesday. That blue shirt is an absolute superstar, but the black dress is pretty damn excellent too.

Ela said...

Especially love Tuesday and Thursday!

Have a great weekend!

Marie said...

I like Wednesday and Thursday the best. I can see myself in both of those outfits and like the way they bring together things I might not have thought of.

Julia said...

Wednesday wins but YOU win for all these varied looks. I love them, each & every one. Now go drink! I am....

Leah said...

Fashion Therapist said...

Fantastic job on this challenge!

Healthy and Homemade said...

Yay it's over. Good for you, I don't think I'd put in enough effort to do this!

I loved Tuesdays look and today's look. Tuesday mainly because of the shoes and sparkle, and today's look is just way too adorable =D

What Would a Nerd Wear said...

i LOVE them all and would wear any of them in a moment's notice. aren't plaid shirts the best? yes, they are.
i vote for thursday (which i somehow managed to miss--it is such a quirky casual look).

Linda said...

It's between Friday and tuesday. Then I decided it's Friday...why? becaue you are wearing your wedding rings in the Friday shots...SHOCK OF ALL SHOCKERS!

What are your extravagent plans? Email me and dish..

Academichic said...

I haven't really had time to comment this week but I've been checkin in with you regularly - you're rockin' this capsule wardrobe thing! I especially love Thu. although today's is really awesome too!

And, yes, I also felt a wee bit vindicated when you noted how damn annoying it can be to take your own photos. Thank you for saying that! ;)

Lovers, Saints and Sailors said...

Tuesday for me. I just can't go past the shrug and jacket.
Such a refreshing combination!

Kyla said...

I think Tuesday and Friday are my favorites. This just goes to show that there's way too much shit in my closet. Must remedy that...

briannelee said...

Cute!!!! #1 and #5 are my favs.

Happy weekend!!!!

futurelint said...

Today's is my total fave! I love the colors and layering and you are the only person who would look cute in that hat (sorry, I'm just not a hat person, but this one looks uber-cool on you!)

The Closet of Kim said...

Nothing better than wine on a Friday afternoon!

To answer the question tho ... I'm going with a tie between Tuesday and Thursday.

Sheila said...

So hard to choose...I like them all! I think Tuesday and Friday are my favourites, though.

I love doing these challenges - so fun! I'll have a poll up for voting on my outfits this weekend.

I'm going to enjoy some wine tonight as well. Great idea!

Celine said...

I'm torn between Tuesday and Wednesday....but truly they're all awesome :)

I'm a bit torn between Tuesday and Friday but in the end... Friday. It makes you look a million miles long. What girl doesn't love that? Plus there's a hat. And hats are special

Completely in love with Friday and somewhat resembling the jolly green giant of envy because I cannot for the life of me look that fabulous in checks! The post-baby E cups will simply not allow it! LOL. I love Friday's outfit, from the trilby to the boots. Big thank you to An Affair with Fashion for introducing me to you, what a fantastic blog. Enjoying every word.
