I’m trying again after my fall challenge kind of petered out at the end. I’m looking forward to having other people with me this time, hope we will all encourage each other. I still don’t expect every day to count, so I want to keep going til I get at least 25 outfits.

The big news here is—brrrrr! Who knows if the snow flurries will actually arrive tomorrow or Thursday (about 10% chance), but for once I’m not sweating, even in fleece-lined tights. This is what I wore to the mall last night, with temps in the low 50s. It got below 40 overnight. This is near the extreme for Tampa (8 years ago it got down to 27). People are setting up props with sprinklers spraying fine mist, in hopes of ice. It will not last. Next week it’s back to 70. Obviously, I need variety in my picks.

My rules
I will count footwear, because I’m looking forward to boots.

I won’t count purses. My bag almost never changes, and if it does, it’s probably because of size.

I won’t count outerwear. I grab a jacket or vest on the way out the door if it’s chilly. It isn’t integral to my outfit, and you’d all get tired of the same pieces.

My palette will be different from last time, with brighter colors. This skirt might not come out again.

Anything I wore for the fall capsule is banned.

Bottoms so far:
purple sweater skirt,
grey T-shirt weight knit skirt,
black flare pants (fabric detail in pic 3)
Those three are all “challenge” pieces that I want to wear, in theory, but don’t actually reach for. Two are quite old, one was purchased last year (but is not available online to make a find) and still has tags.
Plaid leggings
Black & white sweater skirt

Tops should include lots of patterns, because I want to practice mixing and hope to get feedback on that. I have one “challenge” piece here, that might count as a dress instead of a tunic.

Comments, critique, and discussion, especially on the outfit pictured, or what to wear with the “challenge” pieces, are appreciated.
