What I Wore: Tuesday, April 30, 2013

Alright, day 2 of the Pantone Challenge with Literate & Stylish and The Modern Austen! Today's color is African Violet. I didn't have anything in that particular shade, but I had to make a Goodwill run yesterday for something that's coming to our house this weekend (ooh, cryptic...), so I searched for something while I was there. I found something, but unfortunately, thanks to our Monday that got away from us, I didn't have time to wash it last night and had to improvise with these:

I'm going to call these African violets! ;-)

(Side note: does anyone else wash their Goodwill stuff before they wear it, or do they go all out and wear it fresh from the store?)

Here's the entire outfit:

Not sure why I'm so blurry and my colors look "off"
Full body blurry shot!

I didn't realize it until I was leaving, but the outfit has the same color palette as our bedspread:
Promotional picture...our bed never looks that nice!

Also, did anyone read the news story about the guy who lost his entire life savings on a carnival game? There was a line in there about him receiving a "giant stuffed banana with a rasta hat" that had me screaming with laughter...at work...in a library. I laughed so hard that I cried; I couldn't control myself. I guess it was just one of those things that struck me at the right time! The line was funnier than the picture, but I'll include the picture anyway in case someone doesn't feel like reading the entire story:

Lost your life savings? Here's a banana for your trouble, mon. 

So, no matter what kind of day you've had, remember that it could always be worse...unless you're a fan of giant stuffed rastananas (my own new word).

There are still 3 days to go in the challenge. Dig out your yellow for tomorrow (or BYOB- bring your own banana) and join in!

  1. Hahahaha thanks for putting my day into perspective :) You look great and I love the earrings! Pretty bedspread too--seems very relaxing. Thanks for linking up again!

  2. The bad part was, the guy was trying to win an XBOX Kinect. He could've bought several with what he spent on that game! Thanks for the compliments! The bedspread is pretty relaxing. =)
