15 pieces/6 weeks of outfits {casual, week 2}

Here is the second week of outfits, following yesterday’s post.  In case you missed it, here is the jist: I took 15 basic items of clothing and made 6 weeks worth of casual outfits from them.  I’d wear these ensembles out for errands, visiting friends, for dinner with our families, etc.
The outfits here are, once again, very simple.  I opted for layers when possible and added belts to the skirts to add some definition to my waist.

I should probably explain why I am decapitated in all these photos. I’m not worried about stranger danger or anything, but in all honesty, I had just showered prior to taking these so my hair was wet and my face was all red.  Since it was my day off work, there was no way I was going to put on makeup and fix my hair…so this is my solution.
This little challenge was definitely…challenging!  When I’m at home on my off days I tend to just wear yoga pants and a long sleeved top but I will NEVER go out wearing that! I have so much clothing that it can be a little overwhelming choosing what to wear that is appropriate for public places…maybe it’s time for another closet purge.  By limiting myself to what I can wear for this project I was forced to get creative with my combinations.
If you haven’t already I encourage you to try this experiment for your self and see how many outfit combos you can come up with.
