Yesterday’s Who What Wear Challenge was to do a bright monochrome ensemble so I called upon my bright pink J.Crew shift, coral belt, and cream and coral necklace (from my friend Lindsay at The Garden Apt.)
It was fun to wear a big POP of color for a change!
Today’s is to “winterize a summer skirt” and the one I picked is getting caught on my tights as I walk. This isn’t working. So I’m skipping this challenge and picking up again tomorrow with a “new tuck”.
Okay, Okay, I know, I know. I haven’t posted my Who What Wear Outfit Challenge posts this week. So here they are in bulk.
Top Left to Bottom Right // today’s “3 layers” is a tank under an oxford under chambray (with jeans, denim on denim for one of the first times ever for me!) // tuesday’s was pattern on pattern so a prison striped oxford with a watercolored mini // monday’s neutral outfit made interesting and trading in sneakers instead of heels // sunday’s bold pattern was the geometric print dress for the Oscar Party!
So, many of you know that last Friday was my last day at my project manager job. This week I have been focused on getting my social marketing & content management consultancy off the ground! The pieces are still coming together but my site is live » erinmariebassett.com
In the last several months I’ve had a series of “ah ha” moments where I’ve realized that my passions, talents, and natural fascinations all center around connecting brands with their audiences. I am always thinking of how to engage people in a conversation and interact meaningfully with a brand or business. I’ll be sure to keep you posted!
Speaking of interacting meaningfully… I’m conducting a reader survey on Color Me Styled this week! I’d love to have your opinion :)
Today’s challenge is to mix high end with something under $100. This one is actually challenging because I don’t own any high end/designer pieces! I pride myself on a sensibly priced wardrobe.
So I’ve mixed a pair of light blue trousers from LOFT with my #WRUW sweatshirt (c/o WRUW) and white blazer and my wedding necklace (which is one of my most expensive pieces of jewelry).
And… today is my last day in the office so wearing a sweatshirt is just slightly less scandalous than wearing jeans! Gotta go out with a statement right?
I’ve got a fun weekend ahead! Tomorrow I’m having coffee with the people from LocalLux, then watching a UD Flyers game with my fellow alumni, then home to blog, biz plan, and blog some more while cheering on my Blackhawks!! Sunday morning will be for brunch with Danny and then getting ready for the Windy City Bloggers Oscar Party at The Crossing! (I still don’t know what I’m going to wear!) Oh, and dealing with more snow!

We haven’t wanted to write this one.
But yesterday we were interviewed on NPR (!). When we checked the website, we saw this in the comments section from a Gordon:
Soooooo I just finished submitting my book for copyright protection. First I almost paid a website that was not the U.S. Government $135 to complete...
