Take One, Pass It On: Day 29


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.

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.

Take One, Pass It On: Day 15


It’s Monday again, and I feel much more refreshed than I did this time last week, even thought this weekend was much more action-packed than the last. We (finally!) scheduled Caleb’s baptism, started house-hunting, went to church, and celebrated my dad’s birthday. It was busy, but enjoyable. Now, if only work were like that too…


This outfit was a good balance between casual and put together, which is a characteristic I’m constantly in search of when it comes to weekend wear. It’s so tempting to hang out in my gym clothes all weekend long, but this challenge has been a good motivator to take the time to look presentable, even during my days off. As a bonus, Caleb LOVES these shorts–the neon color and jacquard texture makes for a pretty fascinating combination, apparently.

Take One, Pass It On: Day 8

DSC_9730I’ll admit it–I’m a little bummed that it’s Monday already. I could really use a three-day weekend right about now. Not too much longer until Labor Day, right?


As for this outfit, it’s what I wore yesterday for a brief (and unsuccessful) shopping trip and dinner at my parents’ house. Amazingly enough, neither Caleb nor I spilled anything on my white shorts; there were even strawberries served at dinner!
