Fall Fashion Challenge - Teal


Who doesnt fancy a fashion challenge? Im so excited to be participating in my second fashion challenge hosted by Megan from MeganMaeDaily and Keely from Casualchickiki.com. Theme for this challenge is colors of the season and today Monday its TEALday. :)


I only have one teal garment in my wardrobe unfortunately so I had to work around this cardigan. I decided to pair it with this dress which print includes teal paradise birds among others. Hopefully this will suffice *waves at Megan and Keely* :)


Im sorry for the lack of photos, I had to rush out inbetween showers and I only got a few decent pics before it started raining again. Its been raining non stop for the past two days, its a hardknock life for a style blogger. ;) Hehehe

What Im wearing:

Cardigan from Mango
Dress from River Island
Tights from Sneaky Fox (new)
Shoes from Bianco

Now Im off to see what the other participants have come up with for teal day, you might as well check them out too. ;)

  1. The cardigan and dress are terrific. Sometimes I think teal needs a brighter color to go with it and you found it.

    1. Thanks Judy! I have never thought of teal needing a bright colour but I think you are right. :) I just put together this outfit by chance. :)

  2. Teal is a great colour on you, Monica, and the dress is SO pretty! What a gorgeous print.
    Tell me about the grey damp weather, it's no friend to bloggers who want to take outdoor photos... xxxx

    1. Oh Thank you Curtis! :) I havent used teal much, great to hear thats a colour I can wear. :) I prefer to take outdoor photos as the colours are more acurate presented in daylight instead of artificial light. I really hate artificial light, makes my face look all red and plastered.

  12. Fabulous dress - I love that it's birds, and that the cardigan picks them out by colour. Ditto Melanie's comment about the strategically-buttoned sweater, really lovely!

  13. This lovely outfit feels retro in an awesome way! I love the restraint used in choosing the charcoal grey tights. I'm glad you persevered, and got photos despite the sketchy weather.

    1. oh thank you Sue! :) I love being retro, 40s and 50s style is soo my cup of tea. :) Anything with a full skirt makes me drool, hehehe
      If I have a lot of colours going on then its good to use neutral coloured tights, makes the outfit come together I think. :)

  14. I agree with everyone, but especially the retro look that also feels modern, and the colors! I love the teal with gray and yellowy-greens - it's a classy combination.

  15. You wear teal very well! The dress is so beautiful, i love the yellowish-lime with teal, it's such an unusual combination.

    I'm trying to take my photos outside for as long as possible. I remember how difficult it is to work with artificial lighting on indoor photos, all through last winter.

    In this case, and this case only, I can recommend hot flushes! Not that it brightens anything, but you can keep on taking photos in the freezing wind, without wearing coats or jackets!

    1. aaw thanks Tine, means a lot! Yea I love the teal-grey-yellow/chartreuse combination,unusual is good. :) Yea I wont be taking any photos indoors as I look terrible in artificial lighting, my face looks all red and flustered. The colours in my outfits are also looking a little off in indoors lighting. Yup the last photoshoots have been freezing, could do with some hot flashes then. :)
