Last Friday's blog post made me immediately think of lots of nearly red-white-blue combinations to try. So since this week is July 4th, I decided to run with it, and try out as many as I could.

It's been more challenging so far than I expected - The weather was super hot, now it's chilly, and three colors in an outfit is hard for me to fit in. But here's my attempts so far.

#1 is today - a bit of a fade-out. White mesh sweater with faded blue flares. I realize that the flares with the tennis shoes isn't ideal proportions, but I liked it better than #2, with red pointy-toed suede boots.

#2 was a lesson in proportions - I had started with a tomato short-sleeved sweater, but it was too short for full-length jeans. I took Angie's tips, tweaked the length of the top, and liked it better. #3 is with the shoes I liked for the outfit (cream oxfords), and #4 is what I wore to make my feet happy.

#5 is missing the red. It was too hot to wear anything more than this. Blue-white striped tank with white jean shorts

#6-7 is white, navy and a coral jacket. I added even another color with mint and cognac sandals. Does it work?

All suggestions are welcome!
