Take One, Pass It On: Day 26

DSC_0072

To keep things from being completely boring, I opted not to remix my navy skirt yesterday and instead “pass on” the olive cardigan. I’m a big fan of olive + black + white, so I went for that color palette today.

This look served me well through a pretty routine day of data collection and phone calls. My one gripe is that in looking at these photos, this dress is a wee bit shorter than I would prefer for work. I honestly think that it’s my boobs that are taking up extra fabric and thus bringing up the hem a bit. So once I stop breastfeeding, maybe I’ll feel a bit less scandalous in this dress.

Take One, Pass It On: Day 22

Here we are, at the start of another week of this challenge! I’ll be remixing some different pieces this week, largely because I’m starting to transition into the fall (even if the weather isn’t). For today’s look, I remixed my olive shorts.

Technically, I’ve shared this look with you before…it was just a maternity version (which I wore almost exactly a year a go. Weird.). I wore that outfit quite a bit during my pregnancy, so I decided to recreated it with a non-maternity top (and no belly band!). It served me well for the day’s activities–Caleb was baptized yesterday, so we had my whole family over to celebrate and swim in our pool. It was definitely a great way to enjoy the afternoon.

Here we are again, with one of the most worn items in my closet: a striped tee. I’ve remixed this item before on the blog, and I bet I could show you about 20 more outfits with it (but I’ll spare you…for now). For now, I’ll just share the most recent combination: with my ever-present red skirt.

This outfit is another one I’ve probably worn ten times over the course of this summer. The flippy skirt is quite excellent in the ventilation department, and it’s comfortable. Plus, I just seem to be having a love affair with all shades of red these days. Maybe next time I wear it, I’ll branch out from the black/white/red color palette…

Take One, Pass It On: Week 1 Recap

I’ve made it through the first week of the Take One, Pass It On challenge. I’m enjoying this challenge thus far; I like how it forced me to plan my outfits for the week, thereby freeing up some time on weekday mornings. Plus, I’ve gotten a bit more creative with what I wear to work, which is always a plus! Here’s a look at the past week’s looks:
