When one of my favorite people in the whole world wants me to try something, I’m there for him! EVERY TIME!!!
She’s An Event Coordinator…
And she’s being sent to another property to supervise a Doctor Who convention. Her kids bought this for her; they thought it was hysterically funny….
She looked at the scarf for a few minutes, and then had an epiphany! She loves camel and olive, and she realized that this could work…
She bought a couple of sweaters to pick up her “new” accent colors, and found that it was indeed possible to pull together a travel capsule wardrobe using a VERY unlikely color palette…
She forced her kids to come into her room before she packed, just so they could see what she had done!
She was particularly thrilled to see how well even the most unusual accents worked when she had her core of neutrals in place:
So if you’re ever tempted to attend a “cos-play” event, but don’t want to dive all the way into the costume thing, you have options!
And how well would this work for homecoming, or a sports team related weekend?
p.s. 3 years ago, I accented a classic navy dress with all kinds of pastel colors.…
Ann in Missouri says
Janice, you are so cool! And talented! Thanks for shaking it out and having some fun with these clothes.
BTW, I adore those flesh (cough, camel!) pants and sweater. It amazes me that two different clothing brands can produce such well matching colors.
Would a redhead look good in the colors of this wardrobe?
The olive and camel would work.
Definitely! I get compliments when I wear that shade of red and that plummy purple. The only color I would have problems with is the mustardy yellow, but I’ve seen it look great on lots of redheads.
Chris in Indy says
What fun! I collect olive and tan neutrals and this is an excellent want to change things up.
So excited to see OLIVE ballet flats by Ecco!! A good brand for my fussy feet. I just bought olive Blondo boots and love them.
Mama Squirrel says
Our favourite Doctor! Now she might have to work her way through the others.

And the dividers are tiny TARDISes ?
Heck YEAH!!! I love Doctor Who….
Incredible! So much fun. Loved Tom Baker and his scarf. This was the era when my “kids” (now in their forties!) first discovered Dr Who. This wardrobe brings back great memories for me.
I’ve been looking for olive earrings for a very long time. The olive necklace has matching huggie hoop earrings – my search is finally over! Thanks for introducing me to olive erodite. I ordered them this morning and can’t wait for them to arrive so I can wear them with my core of olive!

How fun! Tom Baker will always be The Doctor to me.
What a fun wardrobe! I think my mother knitted a Dr Who scarf for my brother. I’ll have to show him this post . My sister-in-law would look good in this wardrobe. ?
Janice! You’ve outdone yourself with this fun travel group! I love you and your “joie de vivre” which shines through in all you do!
I am jumping up and down, seeing my happy colors here , thanks for this !

HA ha, I loved this. Was a big Tom Baker fan in my youth and have had no use for Dr. Who since then… but that scarf is nowhere NEAR long enough.
I always marvel that they don’t just trip themselves repeatedly when they run with those long scarves… His companion was particularly prone to that, but it never happened! The wonders of television!
Loved this. Just plain fun! Unfortunately the only color I can wear without looking five days dead is the purple. Such a shame especially since olive and camel are such classic colors in basics. Lucky “Chris in Indy”.
Tom Baker was “the” doctor for me. I can only hope that our heroine nips out for some fresh celery.
Janice, I’m impressed. You pulled off a reasonable wardrobe from a heck of a (frankly wacky) inspiration. Then again, 4 did wear a lot of olive and rust (and velvet…it was the 70s…) As it happens, I made my son that scarf—all 13 feet—my red was darker, though. He wouldn’t be caught dead in it now, so I may take it back.
Coach Laura says
Pretty colors, nice picks. I could only wear the purple – even that is too bright for me.
Jeri B. says
Marvelous job with this whimsical wardrobe. I love the accessories! The bracelet and the watch are such great finds to add sophistication to this mix. In the 1980s I had a JH collection olive crepe pants and short collarless velvet jacket. I don’t think I could wear olive green now. My skin is paler and my hair is gray. I too could only wear the purple. Thanks for this Friday night treat!
Brilliant! I love how in the outfits you have picked a colour and a neutral, although it would be interesting to see some of the other colour combinations together too.

DR. WHO!!! YES!!! I’m digging out my Baker scarf now…
You HAVE one????? My life is complete….
He went TOTALLY gonzo when he saw this! We have been binge watching the Doctor the past couple weeks since we found the Doctor Who Classic channel on Pluto TV. Four also has an amazing maroon-ish scarf that is beyond glorious. The girl is still totally in love with 11, she giggles and covers her face when she sees him! (Oh to be 11 and in love!) Thank you for running with this! PS-You need to knit a scarf, the pattern is everywhere!! xoxox
I’m more in love with the 10th… But 11, with Amy Pond, is the BEST story…
Oh Janice, you crack me up! This is so much fun on every level!
Helene Harris says
Really well done. Brava!
Timed perfectly for DragonCon weekend in Atlanta, though you’d literally die from the heat in this wardrobe in Atlanta over Labor Day weekend.
How did The Doctor manage to never end up any place scorching hot? Or did I miss those episodes?
He did, and he’d complain about being hot, but never take anything off to do anything about it. ;) Because Time Lords sweat but don’t take off their clothes, or something like that.
I must watch more…
