take one, pass it on 2017: days 22-25

These past few days have ended up being extraordinarily eventful–let’s just say a gas leak, a daycare evacuation, and a febrile seizure were involved. On days like those, I am very glad that I already had my outfits planned out so that I can devote my mental energy to the tasks at hand!

day twenty-two:

white lace blouse: J.Crew Factory, similar // red skirt: Loft, similar // black wedge sandals: b.o.c., similar // black + gold sunglasses: Warby Parker Lovett, exact

day twenty-three:

gray tee: J.Crew Factory, exact // red skirt: Loft, similar // leopard flats: Dr. Scholls, exact // black crossbody bag: Sole Society, exact //  black leather strap watch: Kate Spade New York, similar

day twenty-four:

gray tee: J.Crew Factory, exact // skinny jeans: BP, similar // tan jeweled sandals: Mossimo, similar // pink crossbody bag: Old Navy, similar // cognac leather strap watch: Wristology, similar

day twenty-five:

olive dress: Amazon, exact // light chambray button-up: Old Navy, similar // nude wedge sandals: Merona, similar // pink crossbody bag: Old Navy, similar

This round had a few surprises in that some of the items were unexpectedly difficult to re-mix. For some reason, I had the hardest time coming up with ideas for the gray tee. I could have chosen something else, but it was kind of annoying me that I couldn’t get creative. I eventually came up with the two looks you see here, but neither is something I am likely to repeat again. Just a few more days of this challenge left!

I’ve got another round of outfits to share today! I hope you like chambray and stripes, because there’s a lot of that going on in these looks…

day eight:

blue + red striped tee: J.Crew Factory, similar // chambray skirt: Loft, similar // tan clog sandals: Lotta  from Stockholm, exact 

day nine:

chambray dress: Gap, similar // tan clog sandals: Lotta from Stockholm, exact // gold pendant necklace: J.Crew, similar 

day ten:

striped tee dress: H + M, exact // two-tone wedge sandals: b.o.c., similar // gold pendant necklace: J.Crew, similar // gray tortoise sunglasses: Warby Parker, exact

day eleven:

black striped tank: J.Crew Factory, similar // olive skirt: J.Crew Factory, exact // two-tone wedge sandals: b.o.c., similar // tortoise sunglasses: Warby Parker, exact// black crossbody bag: Sole Society, exact

Truthfully, much like my last challenge update, my reaction to these outfits is “meh.” I think perhaps I’m just bored with summer (already!) and not really jazzed about wearing skirts and dresses all the time. Maybe some Pinterest surfing is in order to re-inspire me for the many months of summer we have left!
