more magnolias

If you happened to have followed along on my Take One, Pass It On challenge in July, then you’ve seen this top styled twice already. For a printed top, I’m surprised at how many different ways I’ve managed to wear it in the span of a month! This time around I paired it with some green Sloan pants that match ever so perfectly.

I really liked this outfit and felt pretty great wearing it…until a series of events happened that turned the day into a terrible, horrible, no good, ┬ávery bad one. Within the span of a few hours, I got stung by a bee, my “monthly visitor” arrived, and my car battery died. Thank goodness my husband was able to rescue me from that last one at least. I may or may not have drowned my sorrows in a few spoonfuls of peanut butter when I got home.

How do you make yourself feel better after a bad day?

take one pass it on 2017: days 1-4

Hello, friends! As I mentioned in my last post, I’m endeavoring to do another Take One, Pass It On challenge this summer as a way to reinvigorate my interest in my closet and this blog. Here we are, four days into the month already (Happy Fourth!), and I’ve yet to post an update–off to a great start, huh? Despite my silence, I have indeed been re-mixing my wardrobe. Days 1-4 below!

day one:

black tee: Banana Republic Factory, almost exact // red stripe skirt: J.Crew Factory, exact // black wedge sandals: Chaps, exact // gold locket necklace: J.Crew, similar// black + gold sunglasses: Warby Parker Lovett, exact

day two:

black tee: Banana Republic Factory, almost exact // white skinny jeans: Loft, exact // leopard wedge sandals: Sam Edelman, similar // gold mesh band watch: BP, similar

day three:

day four:

The first few days of re-mixing always seem to flow the most freely, so I haven’t found this round of Take One, Pass It On too challenging yet. The day one outfit is one I’ve worn quite a few times this summer, and I can see myself wearing again–I find myself gravitating toward a lot of red lately. The magnolia print top seen in days three and four is a recent purchase, so I’m glad it’s proving to be somewhat versatile.
