Fashion Fall Colors Challenge 2012: TEAL!!

This is my second Fashion Challenge I put myself through, this year. I love doing these challenges. And both times I have been challenged to one, I have been pregnant, as the first one was in June. However back then all my clothes fit, now they do not. So this second time around it will be more challenging since I do not own pregnancy clothes in all the colors I am supposed to represent every day of the week. As a matter of fact, I just purchased this cardigan on Saturday (along with 5 other tops: I paid less than 110$ for all of them so it's a real good deal). To see my first challenges click here, also here, as well as here, there, and finally this. This was the Summer Challenge. Did you think I did well?

The first day of the Fashion Fall Colors' Challenge Monday is The Color Teal. =) First of all I LOVE TEAL. It is one of my favorite colors (top 5). It is one of those colors that it is good all-year around. But a darker teal like the one I am wearing today is best for colder-weather days like October-April. I also feel like Teal is the Winter Sister Color of Turquoise who is the Summer Sister Color. ;-) Yep, I just made that up (my opinion). I paired this with the most comfortable Black+White small Floral tank underneath, a classic black pencil skirt, a high-rise skinny black belt, warm sand/beige tights, gold loafers and some green earrings. I love the palettes of the cardigan featuring four strips of a gold zipper. The gold matches the loafers perfectly. I also love that the cardigan has pockets. ;-) For an extra dose of teal, see my handbag which I love.

P.S. This is my first time scheduling a post ahead so I hope it works. I guess I will find out tomorrow morning if it did or not. LOL

  1. Teal is so pretty and I think it goes well with so many skin tones. The gold shoes look great with this color too. I love baby bumps belted like yours, so adorable :) Heather

  2. hooray for teal. I love it with the printed blouse. I nearly did the inverse - printed cardi with a teal shirt but it was too cold.

    I usually always post what I'm wearing the same day. Only on occasion do I post the previous day. I like to get recent feedback on what I'm wearing.
