Be Inspired :: Risky Business

by DressWithPurpose

Good Morning and Happy Monday!


My Purpose & Inspiration :: Hope you had a glorious weekend! For the most part, mine was fairly relaxing, woohoo it’s been a while since I had that! This week is full of projects, accounting, conference calls and meetings. Today’s July Wardrobe Challenge is Risky Business and I have to admit this was a hard one for me… I don’t want to make all the challenges too easy because then we wouldn’t be forced outside our box, plus the beauty of it is if you have a remixable wardrobe outfits like today’s are possible.  So my risky for today is mixing patterns and textures, I am not usually one to mix this way so this is a bit risky for me. A great tip if you like to mix patterns and textures is to keep them in the same color family, although today I am keeping it pretty monochromatic.  Hope you have a fantastic day and rest of the week! Don’t forget you can share your outfits with me on Instagram, I would love to see how you take on these challenges! Transform Your Image 1 Outfit at Time!!
