C&C Challenge

We are starting something new here on C&C called the #cardicouturechallenge. It actually came as a suggestion from my friend and fellow fashionista AS (you saw her beautiful ankles in a previous post about booties). Her idea...each week we post a fashion challenge for our readers: "wear something that delights you, wear sunglasses and sweaters, try a new combination in your closet, etc." In each challenge we hope to involve more of our readers through the various forms of social media: Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. We plan for it to be a weekly challenge, but I'm not making any promises. 

So, without further adieu, here is the first ever #cardicouturechallenge. This week's challenge is to wear stripes and plaid. 

I was inspired by blogger Lacey of A Lacey Perspective to not only wear stripes and plaid, but also to replicate her outfit. 

Conveniently, I have the exact same scarf from Zara (last season) that I paired with an H&M striped shirt, Citizens for Humanity jeans and Cole Haan Boots. 

I finished off the outfit with a nude patent J Crew belt, a J Crew Clutch and a red Angela Caputi bracelet.

Now it's your turn! We challenge you to wear stripes and plaid together. Feel free to replicate a similar look or put your own pieces together. Here's the order for this to be interactive, you will have to share your posts with us through Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Post your photos to the C&C facebook page, post to Instagram and use the hashtag #cardicouturechallenge.  Feel free to email your photos to and we will post them for you! 

Ready, set…stripes and plaid!
