Day 2 of the challenge. I put together an outfit with a red leather blazer as a center piece. In this outfit, I am a lot more in my element compared to yesterday's knitted poncho.

I am wearing a red leather blazer, a black silk top with a ruffle and a pair of wide black pin striped wool pants. I wear a pair of flat burgundy patent leather boots. I added a wool scarf in burgundy and a snake patterned bag in burgundy/aubergine colour. I also tried purple sunglasses with this outfit. This is what I actually wore to work today (No 1).

Then, I started playing with the outfit and added various accessories. These do not belong to the challenge - but it became fun to try...

No 2 - I added a long patterned silk scarf, large red sunglasses and a smaller black handbag. No 3 - a detail of the scarf.

No 4 - a square silk scarf in black and various other colours, brown sunglasses. No 5 - detail of the scarf.

No 6 - a red square scarf, red sunglasses. No 7 - a detail of the scarf.

No 8 is an experiment - I added a 60ies vintage grey/beige handbag and a pair of very old sunglasses in the same colour which I have not been wearing for years. Not sure if it works.

So, what do you guys think? Grateful for honest feedback, comments and ideas how to improve.
