I started out the week with great intentions of the Ingunn Challenge, despite knowing that a couple of things did not exist in my wardrobe.

1. Button down with Lace. Well, the only lace in my wardrobe is a jacket withlace sleeves, and it's just TOO DARN COLD for that right now. But I did wear a button down!

2. No Ingunn challenge here. Just comfy NYDJ skinnies, BR cardigan and boots.

3. MY BAG ARRIVED!!! Yup, I'm yelling. I LOVE this bag. It's a bit smaller than I was expecting, which is probably a good thing. More purse and less tote. Two compliments from total strangers. Was in a conference so went for more "conference wear", and it was hard for me to incorporate the Ingunn challenge criteria into this.

4. Had to wear the bag again. Day 2 of conference, and I was giving a presentation. Danier tank, Jacob skirt and new EF cardigan. Man I love this cardigan. Perfect length for me to wear with leggings (maybe even skirted ones, cough cough), lightweight so great for travel, probably will work for three seasons. I had bought it in blue and loved it so much I duplicated when it went on sale 50% off. Snow forecast so wearing boots that are weatherproof plus fashionable. Who knew that combo existed?

5. Colour blocking. Sort of. This is a black dress with a red bodice and sleeves. I have rarely worn it, as it's pretty body con and I've put on a few pounds since I got it. I had to go to a conference dinner, and it was snowing sideways, so I wanted to wear boots that I could wear in the snow as well as inside. The colour blocking idea made me dig the dress out. And I discovered that the EF cardigan, plus the belt, totally dealt with tbe body con issues. This felt like the perfect thing to dine with colleagues in.

And this (Friday) (Casual day) was the day to try denim on denim, however I'm at home with a sick child so am in Lulu's. And if she were well, we'd be on a school ski trip. Sucky day for her.

So a bit of a bust on the Ingunn Challenge front, but I hope it wasn't a bust on the outfit front.
