~Wk4~ Iron

Already one month into the Color Challenge  and this week is "Iron." Not exactly what you might expect from the color swatch posted. I visualize Iron as being the dark aluminum color of tall scaffles with members of the Iron workers union working on them. Yah, I know, a little unusual about the Iron union comment, but then hey, I am a union girl from birth till now. Shout out to the Teamsters and Longshoremans union!
On with our challenge, the color we went by was more of a light dove gray and one of my favorites to wear or decorate with, because of it's neutral tone. You can mix it with so much, which is why I went off the normal beat and path of one solid color, and mixed it with navy blue, white and denim. The hat and boots I am wearing are white, but they have a gray tint to them, pulling in the color of the sweater, and completing the outfit.  I liked this one casual look so much, I believe it will go down as one of my favs for this year.
