The Day 1 challenge was to "Wear a Bright Color Combo." I didn't find a whole lot of bright colors in my closet, so I grabbed pretty much the only loud pieces of clothing I could see -- a hot pink silk blouse and bright red midi skirt. I've always loved pink and red together, so this was actually a great twist of fate. Did I worry about wearing such attention-grabbing clothing to work? Definitely. Did I shrug it off because, honestly, who really cares about what I wear to work (besides me)? Oh for sure. My resolve wasn't even shaken when someone I encountered that day told me that I looked like Valentine's Day! Whatevs, sounds like a good reason to eat some chocolate. :)
Anyhow, below are some snaps from Day 1. Initially, I wanted to wear the red patent leather pumps with studs and three ankle straps but I had to draw the line somewhere. That just didn't seem right in the office. So, I compromised with a pair of black and white python pumps, which I paired with a long, thin string of pearls.
