I rarely enter contests on Instagram, but I had to jump on this one the moment it was announced. The House That Lars Built is known for her color challenges, and this one practically screamed at me. #DressTheRainbow required us to dress to match the wall we were standing in front of. Such a fun idea! It wasn't even about the prize (even though it was hella awesome), I just loved doing it!
If you are already following me on Instagram, then you definitely saw the colorFUN. I have to admit: I improvised. Getting photographs in front of colorful walls around town was just not possible with the kiddos (and by "kiddos", I mean grumpy Lou). Instead of not participating, I made my own walls at home! Not painted walls, but fabric backgrounds. I would switch it up, depending on what the week brought. If you look at my Instagram account, you can see the rainbow going down the feed.
50 days = 50 photos. Above is the gallery of all my looks! I gave myself a theme each week to keep myself on track. It was probably the only reason I was able to do all 50 days! Whew!
Week One: Normal boring me
Week Two: Hair Clips
Week Three: Disney photo props
Week Four: Style my feet
Week Five: Nail polish
Week Six: Handbag Love
Week Seven: Life with Watkinez Boys
It made me realize that I didn't have as much color in my closet as I thought! My most recurring color is grey (what the what?). Some colorful pieces were sold at our yard sale in July, and I regretting doing so because they would have been great for this project. Oh, well. At least this means I need to go shopping (tee! hee!).
Oh, and here's an outtake. Just for fun. :)
