take one, pass it on 2017: days 29-31

At long last, the final few outfits on this summer’s Take One, Pass It On challenge! I really liked these last few looks and can see myself repeating all of them in the future.

day twenty-nine:

black striped tee: Mossimo, similar // olive pants: Banana Republic, similar // two tone wedge sandals: b.o.c., similar // gold  pendant necklace: J.Crew, similar

day thirty:

red floral tank: Who What Wear, similar // olive pants: Banana Republic, similar // tan wedge sandals: Chaps, exact // reversible tote: Street Level, exact

day thirty-one:

red floral tank: Who What Wear, similar // white jeans: Loft, exact // gold wedge sandals: Lauren Ralph Lauren, exact // gold mesh band watch: BP, similar

I’ll admit, there were times that I was a little hot in these last two outfits owing to the whole pants thing. But, in the overly air-conditioned offices and stores I frequent, I was glad to have the extra coverage. I’ll post a re-cap post of this month’s outfits shortly so that I can reflect on the experience and use it to inform my future wardrobe choices.

Thanks for following along!

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 made it to the home stretch of this challenge! For the look I’m sharing today, I predictably remixed my navy + pink print shorts.

I wore this look for a day of house hunting (ugh) and celebrating my sister’s birthday. For the record, it’s still a bit too hot for my chambray shirt–I ended up changing into a navy tee in the middle of the afternoon.

And the infatuation with navy blue continues. I definitely go through phases in terms of my favorite neutral, and I’m in my (navy) blue phase right now. Looking back at my archives, it seems that navy blue is a color I tend to favor in the fall.

Anyway, this infatuation is perhaps why I chose to pair yesterday’s blush top with navy blue pants. I added my pearl necklace, as I’ve seen a similar look on Fran and loved it. This outfit worked out fine for a day of working from home for half the day–the kiddo is still sick. Fingers crossed he can head back to daycare tomorrow…
