Fashion Challenge: Teal

Sweater - Cambridge Dry Goods, thrifted
Cords - J.crew, thrifted
Boots - Arche
Buttonflower - MMD


Welcome all to the start of Fashion Challenge: Fall Colors! Today's color is Teal. I have a surprisingly small amount of our challenge colors (except grey), and I was so mad when I managed to rip the armpit of my teal cardigan before today's challenge. But it dropped 30 degrees over night and I got to pull out the big sweater. Unfortunately, college students did NOT get today off, even though nothing else is really running today.

Except for the Fashion Challenge! If you haven't signed up yet, feel free to jump in late. Just click the badge in my sidebar to take you to the masterpost. While you're at it, please visit our participants and cheer them on.

For those who might have been interested in yesterday's buttonflower grab bag, it's already sold, but I sat down last night and pulled together some specific price-point grab bags. They're perfect for Christmas presents or a gift to yourself. Check 'em out on the buttonflower page.

  2. Your sweater looks so warm and cozy! And it looks great with the salmon pants! I really like it!

    I think I ended up more "turquoise" than teal today, but I did my best!

  6. Dang it. I knew I would forget about the challenge. Sigh. I've lost so much motivation and sense of what is going on. At any rate, I love all of your bright colors today Megan. I don't really have anything teal anyways . . . But I do plan to join for the rest of the week! We had to work today too, even though the Courts are closed. And my boss is skiing. What the hell is that about????

  7. Me too, I forgot all about it after trying to post last Monday instead! So I just now put a message on today's post saying just look at last Monday's post for me in my only teal clothing. It's the best I could do. Anyway, your color combo is genuis. Hopefully I'll do better with the rest of this...

  8. Oh phew, you don't own all the challenge colours either! I think I will have to introduce a different colour one day, as yellow and I aren't friends, but it's nice to have a plan to stick too. Your jumper looks lovely and cosy, really nice.

    1. Just try the best you can with what you've got! It's a challenge, but a self-imposed challenge to use what you own to work with the trends. :)

  9. I am so in love with chunky knits right now, and teal is a colour I haven't yet seen, except for here, obviously. I love the colour pairing; I went with chocolate brown with my teal today, and that (I think) raspberry-ish pink wouldn't have occurred to me, but it's fabulous!

  10. I like the teal and the coral together. I didn't get today off either, since it wasn't a holiday for my company.

  11. In our latest contract we negociated an extra day at Christmas instead of today so we'll see if I'm less grumpy in a month and a bit. I'll likely be dressing along with you but not posting. The snowy sads have taken the fun out of ootds.

  15. Very festive color combination and the cable sweater looks perfect for a cold day. The teal looks beautiful with your hair.

  16. That sweater reminds me of ones I wore in the 80s, hee hee. Your buttonflower looks like a poppy; very appropriate for Remembrance Day.

  19. You look so cozy & pretty. I love that sweater which looks awesome with the button flower. I have almost an identical pair of cords, I just need a similar sweater to make this outfit happen, myself.

    Check out my First Day Challenge. <3 Ada.
