Bloggers Do it Better: White Out

I came across the next Bloggers Do It Better assignment through Ashley from Image Envy.  The assignment was White Out.  When I read the assignment, I was worried because I looked in my closet and realized I don’t have anything white!  But then I remembered my white pleated skirt from Banana Republic that I bought a few years back.  I haven’t worn the skirt in ages because I had gained a lot of weight since I have lost 43 pounds the skirt fits and is actually a little big.  So I was happy that I had a white item.  I had planned on taking the pictures for my blog and the challenge yesterday, but I ended up with a dreaded stomach virus and spent yesterday in bed.  Today, I knew I had to do the challenge.  I am still not feeling a 100% but I got myself out of bed and took my pictures. 

So here is my white outfit:




White Pleated Skirt – Banana Republic (no longer available)
Mossimo Interactive Cinch Back Tank - Fresh WhiteTarget
Tan Skinny BeltForever 21
Tan Peep Toe Heels - Liz Claiborne (no longer available)
Gold Bangle Bracelet – World Market (no longer available)
Gold Earrings – Target (no longer available)
Brown HandbagGucci

I wasn’t sure if I was going to like this challenge, because I am the girl who likes grey and black and some bright colors, but I have never liked white.  I think I have stayed away from white because I have always been pale.  My husband and I joke that we are the palest couple in Florida.  But I have to say I loved my outfit!  I have realized I can pull off white and definitely plan to in the future.  Thank you Pretty Shiny Sparkly for challenging me outside my comfort zone.  Check out the other Bloggers doing White Out here.

Thanks everyone for the comments! It pays to shop your closet you never know what you will come across.
