Shades of Plum

**For the entire month of May, I’m doing a N0-Repeat Challenge.  I will not be repeating any  piece of clothing throughout the whole month(shoes/accessories/undies not included).  At the end of the month I’ll show a Before/After of my closet(I’m putting pieces already worn in another closet for the duration of the challenge)**

I think that when you have a fashion/outfit of the day type blog you feel some sort of pressure to make these overly complex, layered, multi-piece outfits.

This can results in really awesome outfits, but often ends up making me look contrived or over-done.  Today is one such day.  I had the idea of layering my grey lace t-shirt over a deep plum/eggplant colored blouse to coordinate with the plum and grey stripes of my skirt.

Even though I’ve layered this shirt over other blouses before, it just didn’t work this time. It is *almost* there but not quite. I think it is the 3/4 sleeve length of the blouse.

Anyways, here’s the result:

Awkward somehow.

So, I removed the lace shirt and voila, a much improved version.  Sometimes simpler is better.
