    Hey guys!

    Here's the new challenge for the next week. Gerry told me to handle the challenge since he will be on vacation (enjoy Gerry!) and I've been a bit busy, so the entries valid are from this week (Monday 30th) and will go until November the 10th. So, you have time to put your best outfit.

    The challenge is easy... no patterns at all. Tie is mandatory. Textured ties like grenadines or knit are accepted. PS is optional. So wear your best outfit without any pattern on it.

    Want some inspiration?

    I really need to do laundry. Will have a hard time playing with my current clean shirts.

    I think this is my actual first challenge, and I definitely won't compete with you guys but here goes. Also on my phone the photos look much better but for some reason they translated differently here. I am not sure if it is just my computer screen though.

    Fortunately, both of those are just examples. Haven’t worn all solids this week

    Talking with @An Acute Style we agreed it might be a good idea to extend the challenge for another week so we get some more entries.
