Reinterpreting an old favorite

So, I really wanted to wear something in the vein of picture #2. I really loved the colors and the balance of pattern and color blocking. I couldn't just wear the same thing simply because I did not want to wear a skirt and tights today. I thought I would challenge myself to come up with something that felt similar but was different. #1 is the result. What do you think?

    They are both fantastic! As you said similar but quite distinct.

    DV, this looks like a homerun to me ... you are the master of color use in my book ... you never miss! Looks fantastic!

  • Karie replied 7 years ago

    I can definitely see the inspiration from your previous outfit. It's fun to challenge ourselves, especially when the result is a fabulous as this.

    Karie - I think you hit the nail on the head. I need a challenge other than deciding what to wear :-)

    Day Vies, I love how you've kinda rearranged the colours... still black, white, green and the skinny yellow belt, but moved around. It's a nice example of working with a defined colour palette.

    I hope Angie won't mind me using the word 'killer'..but it is :) It's great to see you posting again DV and looking mighty fine too.

    You've captured the essence of your original outfit very well, and created another fabulous outfit. I love your use of colour blocking -  really striking.

    Great remix, this has the same color blocking vibe, just without the skirt.  Nice job!

    Very fresh.

    Great fit for the pants, and such a fresh color scheme! Will have to note it for myself. Love both your outfits!  YLF, Day!

    Both versions are great, but the white sweater in #1 really pops!

  • Sveta replied 7 years ago

    I think it looks great - and you are in a great shape post-baby, DV!
    Teal and white are your colors.

  • shipskitty replied 7 years ago

    Love both looks. Fabness achieved!

    They are both fab, you did a great job in finding a similar feel with a different look.
