24: Floral Fuchsia over Olive!?

I know, I know, I know, this floral black, white+fuchsia blouse would look much better over a black maxi dress rather than an olive green one. But, I didn't have a Black Maxi included in my 30 items. Plus, that means, it will be grounds for a future outfit. You have already seen me wear this dress and this blouse this week (here and here). I am not sure how I feel about today's outfit, but I am all about keeping it real and I am showing you the next outfit from the challenge. Especially, since challenges like these - where you have a very small portion of your closet to remix - make you think outside the box, for one. They also teach you about what clothes you should and shouldn't pair together. How did I do? Ohh and Happy Weekend guys, Friday is here in a few hours! Got anything fun planned?!

  3. This is a lovely top especially with fuschia being such a pretty colour. I actually like it with olive more than I would black. I like to go for combinations that are not the obvious choice, makes things more fun and creative.

  14. Way to think outside the box! This will look really cute with a black maxi dress or skirt when you have the chance to wear all your clothes again! Love that pretty lip color too!
