October Color Challenge: Plum


I love fall colors – especially ones that goes with so much. Plum, burgundy, eggplant or aubergine might be one of my favorites – and I can’t wait to see your outfits so I can find new ways to wear plum!

Joining the Color Challenge is simple! Just add your post link (not your blog link), link back to Small Town, Big Wardrobe and visit as many of the blogs as possible! Thanks for participating!

September Color Challenge: mustard!

I am so ready for fall colors – but I think mustard/goldenrod/dark yellow is a great fall color that actually works all year! I can’t wait to see your mustard outfits – and get inspired to create some cute ones of my own.

Please link back to my blog on your post – and please don’t post a link older than two weeks.

Thanks for participating!

outfit of the day + september color challenge

It may not be cool enough for fall clothes – but it’s perfect out for fall colors!

Top and peep-toes, Talbots
Skirt, J. Crew Outlet
Belt, J. Crew

I haven’t been able to find a peplum top yet, but I love how the belt gives this lace top (a hand-me-down from my mom!) a hint of peplum. The belt over a top or cardi look rarely works for me, but this time I felt great all day. Although note to self: take outfit photos before skirt gets all wrinkly. I have pretty good luck with the retail No. 2 pencil skirts staying smooth all day, but the factory versions definitely don’t have as much wool – and don’t stay as nice.

And of course I wore this skirt on purpose – this month’s color challenge is mustard! I can’t get enough of this fabulous fall color and have rounded up a few pieces to give you ideas for your fabulous outfits that somehow incorporate mustard, goldenrod, chartreuse and any other variance of this great color! Even though this is traditionally a fall shade, I know I”ll be wearing my mustard skirt all year.

Here’s some mustard inspiration to get you started! Next Thursday, September 20, I’ll post the link-up – with linky tools so you don’t have to send me anything ahead of time! So excited!

Belt, Target • Cardigan, Banana Republic • Necklace, Tinley Road • Moccasins, Minnetonka • Jeans, LOFT • Earrings, Kate Spade New York • Satchel, Target • Skirt, J. Crew Outlet (I’m wearing this one!)

I can’t wait to see all your looks!

announcing the july color challenge!

Whew! It’s already Thursday, but it’s my first day back in the swing of normal life, whatever that is. I’ve been on the beach since Saturday, spending my days just off the coast of Captiva Island and my nights eating my way through grouper and tuna and shrimp and any other seafood I can get my hands on.

It was a wonderful – and much needed – vacation. Seriously: I hadn’t been to the beach in seven years. That’s too long for anyone!

I had a wonderful time – but I am so glad to be home.

And I’m also glad to announce the July Color Challenge! This month’s color:  pink!

Pink is obviously one of my favorite colors. It just screams happy to me. From the palest ballet pink to deep fuchsia, pink dominates my wardrobe. But lately I’m focusing on bright carnation pink – like this blazer that’s already one of my favorite pieces.

In order to participate, all you have to do is email me a recent post (a week old or less) that includes this month’s color, along with a link to the post and a photo of your outfit. Submissions for this month’s Color Challenge are due July 17 at midnight EST. Please link back to my blog on the post you chose – here’s a button for you! Just grab the button image and link back to my blog when you post it!

I can’t wait to see your pink outfits!
