We just finished Week Four of #IWillWearWhatILike on Instagram. If you have not heard of this social media campaign, check out my original post HERE. It explains what it is all about.
This was the first week where there were a few items on the list I couldn't do because I didn't own them or I was not willing to do them…like Rainbow Hair for example. I spend waaaay too much money on my hair as it is, that I wasn't willing, even for the sake of the cause, to dye my hair odd colors. Some of the ladies put wigs on, but I did not have access to any of those either.
Another one was Abercrombie & Fitch. I do not have any of their clothes, nor do we have any of their stores where I live, so I couldn't even do a fitting room selfie.
But here are the challenges I could do!
Day 15: Maximum Three Colors. Did you know that anyone over thirty should never wear more than three colors at once? Neither did I! So here I am wearing four colors: white, yellow, blue, and pink!
I bought these fur trimmed boots while vacationing in Italy a few years ago. I rarely wear them anymore, but I still hang on to them for memory's sake.
Day 23 was 'American Eagle'. Now I had originally planned on just stopping at the American Eagle store in our town, trying something on, and doing a fitting room selfie. But you know what, when I found these flare jeans (I've been looking for a pair of flares FOREVER!) I actually bought them! They were my first American Eagle purchase ever! I've never been into an American Eagle store before this campaign because I thought it was too expensive or for high schoolers. But I really liked a lot of the items they carried, and the staff at the store was absolutely wonderful! They were so helpful, directing me to what I was looking for, finding sizes, etc. And they never once let me feel or think that I was too old to shop there (I've had those awkward store experiences before). I also found their prices quite comparable, if not cheaper, than a lot of other stores I frequent. I had such a positive experience, I will definitely be visiting again!
And finally, Day 22 was 'Furry Anything'. Older women, can't wear fur? Really? We are known for our fur stoles, fur gloves and hats, fur coats and vests. So of course, I had to be a Prima Donna and break out my old faux chinchilla fur coat! I bought this coat over thirty years ago! I never wear it anymore, but I keep it for a theatre prop. I use to do a lot of acting, and every now and then a role would call for a fur coat, and out this baby came. It has seen a lot of memories, let me tell you!
Have a great day! Amy

that rule about 3 colors makes no sense to me?! I say wear what you like ahah!ReplyDelete
These were some really cute photos, Amy. I had never heard of the three color rule, which I suppose doesn't matter because I would certainly ignore it anyway. You look great in those flare jeans - glad you went ahead and purchased them! I've shopped American Eagle all the time for the boys, but pretty much never for myself - the sizes are so tiny!ReplyDelete
I love the pink tassel necklace and the yellow colors in your first outfit. I usually wear my hair up a few days a week and try to wear it down (and style it) the others. lol.ReplyDelete
I love every outfit on you! You can totally wear each of those styles! It's so fun to see you stare this campaign down! PS You awesome in those jeans girl!ReplyDelete
Adorable!!! I really like those brown boots. Just lovely.ReplyDelete

Oh my goodness no fur or crop tops for 30 year olds- that is bizarre and so wrong, I love these and I am 30 haha!ReplyDelete
Love the color combo in your first outfit with the yellow cardigan. And that crop top outfit is super cute!ReplyDelete
I guess I break that rule of three all the time. Glad you did too because I like your four colored look. Thanks for linking up with Whitney, Casey & Carrie. Hope you have a lovely week!ReplyDelete
Those jeans are amazing on you! And you pull off 4 colors effortlessly!ReplyDelete
This is such a fab challenge, it's unbelievable what some think one can't wear if you're a 40+. Well done you. Love, Kirsten xxReplyDelete
I love the mix of colors in your first look! & the cute overalls! I am obsessed with the overalls trend this seasonReplyDelete
I really like the crop sweater look with the blouse underneath. It looks great with your new jeans! You are rockin' the four colors together! The pops of pink are fabulous. Love that you are doing this challenge!ReplyDelete
