Book/Picture Challenge!

So I was feeling like I wanted to mix up my wardrobe a bit and play around with my clothes and took inspiration from Kari
She has been doing a flickr picture challenge ... and I was going to take part in this too, only the pictures are on US time and don't come out early enough for me to get dressed :D so I decided to make up my own .. I wasn't sure what words to use .. so then my strange mind came up with the idea of opening a book/novel/mag to any page and stabbing my finger on a word ... any word .. putting it into flickr, randomly choosing a number before seeing the pics and seeing of I could make an outfit from the subject matter!

So here is my first go:

Random Word - Tannoy.
Number - 12.


Picked out the pink of the lillies for my skirt, green and purple from the wallpaper, Browns of the desks, tannoys for my shoes and the grey from the vase.

Not bad I feel for a first attempt!

Wore this to go get my car MOT test done today and then babysitting - took the little girl on a loooooong walk in her pushchair - didn't realise how steep the hill was on the way back though - phewy no need for gym today!!!

What I wore today:

Skirt: Thrifted.
Top: George @ Asda.
Cardie: George @ Asda.
Shoes: Marks and Spencer's.
Scarf: Belt off jeans - Next.

A tannoy is like a PA speaker system although there is only a small glimpse of one in the picture I picked LOL!

Candycane, I love that you are doing your own picture challenge inspired by Hanna's flickr challenge! I love how you captured colors from different parts of the picture. The result looks effortless.
