My favorite DIY/style blogger SewPetiteGal is the host of this month’s Petite Fashion Challenge and here’s the challenge she posed:
The Challenge: Candy Colorized
Take a bowl full
of colorful candies (M&Ms, Jolly Ranchers, jelly beans, etc.), close
your eyes, and draw 2-3 pieces. Now use those colors (+ a neutral of
your choosing) to form the basis for your ensemble.
So…let me explain why there are no red peanut M&M’s in the mix. In between trying to find my camera and losing my memory card, I picked out all the red one’s and ate them. Call it cheating or coincidence, I only had the following colors to choose from.
So…I ended up with two colors. I can work with blue and green. I had to resist the urge to colorblock the heck out of these two colors but remembered that I had worn that outfit before so I decided to interpret the challenge a little differently. I ended up wearing blue and green and the shades in between.
As for my “neutral” color – I picked gold and kept it subtle. The bag hardware, the necklace, and the hints of gold in the bracelet give the outfit a little sparkle.
I think the end result’s not too shabby. It’s a smoother color transition and while not as eye-catching as color-blocking, I think it’s pretty interesting to look at.

And, before you run off to read the other entries for this PFC, I want to leave you all with some pictures of yummy food. What’s summer without burgers and hot dogs?! (ok, I got really hungry while editing these pictures and didn’t think it was fair that I had to be the only hungry person after dinner…so there!)
