7 Looks x 7 Days – LBD Day 6

7 Looks x 7 Days – LBD Challenge – Day 6

Day 6 of the 7 Looks x 7 Days – LBD challenge.

This time around I went for the layers and used the dress as though it were a skirt. Winter has rolled in and it’s freezing in one of the offices I work in so I the layers are as much about staying warm as trying to look good!

I like the casualness of the plaid shirt and once the cable knit sweater/jumper and red cowboy boots were added the look became totally town & COUNTRY, with an emphasis on the country!

The red necklace was bought while in Egypt for about $5 and the bracelets are just a mix of copper and wire bracelets I have had for years. Actually the copper ones come from the day I spent with my mum going through her jewelry box, which I wrote about in “Tag, Apparently I’m It”.

What I like about this look:

Layers – winter gets cold here and the layers keep my aging bones from creaking too much!

It’s casual and comfy.

Love Red…do I need to explain? It’s a great colour!

I get to wear my red boots!

Did I say, “I get to wear my red boots”? – oh, I did? Well I get really happy when I get to wear my red boots!!

What I don’t like about this look:

I actually think it would look better if the sweater/jumper were shorter. More of a crop style that hit about the waist.

It should probably have a black necklace for a little more contrast.

Do you think the layers break me into too many sections? Red sweater, plaid shirt, black skirt and leggings, then red boots?
