Here we have all 24 outfits I wore for the Take One, Pass It On Challenge. Scroll below for my thoughts on the whole thing.
I really enjoyed participating in this challenge; like I said on Day 1, the challenge is more low key than other wardrobe challenges out there and therefore easier to manage. While some days it was a little challenging (hence the challenge aspect) to incorporate a piece from the previous day’s outfit, it’s actually rewarding when you make it work! I would definitely choose to participate in this again.
So it goes: this wraps up the Take One, Pass It On outfit challenge for me. As I was scrolling through past pictures, I realized that I actually ended up doing 6 outfits a week, for a total of 24 outfits – not too shabby! Instead of a Week 4 Wrap Up, I will be posting a wrap up post tomorrow of all 24 outfits. Get ready. It’s going to be a time. For today’s outfit, it’s been super cold the past few days, but it seems to be just a bit warmer today; however, I knew that I wanted to pass on this comfy sweater. And, for those playing at home, notice anything else about this outfit? If not, you will tomorrow.

Also, if you missed it, yesterday, I listed all the ways you can follow me on social media. Let’s be friends! Hooray!
Happy Thanksgiving! Just a quick post before I go stuff my face again. I passed on this necklace, bee tee dubs.

You guys, it’s my 100th post! I’ve posted 100 inane things on this little blog, so crazy! I think for my 100th post, it’s only fitting that there be…SNOW in my pictures. Yeah, don’t mind those blurs and specks in my photos; it’s just SNOW…in November. Normally I take my photos a couple of days in advanced to stay more on top of things, but I got behind this week. I got dressed this morning and stepped outside with my camera and tripod only to see…SNOW. If I had taken the photos in advance, I may have tried at a different time, but I had to have these photos for today’s post. Being the
brave idiot blogger I am, I forged on. You’ll notice that I passed on yesterday’s dress, but I pulled it up a bit to create more of a tunic feel and then layered this ballet-like wrap top over it; throw on some fleeced-line leggings and tall suede boots, and I’m ready for…snow, I guess.

This is one of my favorite kinds of fall outfits: tights, boots, dress, blazer (or cardigan). It’s fashionable yet comfortable, and yesterday’s blazer makes me feel put together. Yet again, though, I feel as though I’ve backed myself into a corner for tomorrow’s outfit, but we’ll see what I can come up with.
Blazer: Lauren Conrad / similar
Dress: Target / similar
Boots: Target / similar
Necklace: F21 / new but still can’t find it on the website – here’s a necklace with a similar tribal feel
I knew that I wanted to pass on my striped shirt from yesterday, but I wanted to dress it up a bit. Knotting it over this flowy top was lovely, but with it being so cold out, I just needed something…blazer it was. Blazer it will be. Layer, layer, layer…until you’re wearing all the shirts. I don’t love this outfit…I think I liked it better without the blazer (it had a 70s vibe going on), but I do sort of like the striped sleeves poking out of the blazer sleeves. I’ll be passing on this blazer tomorrow!

jeans: Gap/ similar

You guys, only one more week and TOPIO is over! I will say that although I miss Florida, it was much easier to get dressed this week and to keep going with the challenge, since I wasn’t getting dressed out of a suitcase anymore. You’ll see some of those outfits next week though! Have a wonderful Sunday – I’m off to brunch and Catching Fire !
What are you doing today? Have you seen Catching Fire yet? What’d you think (no spoilers!)??
So yesterday I cheated, and I today I’m just breaking all the rules. Black and navy? Black and brown?? Arrest me, Fashion Police; I don’t care. I just started adding pieces, and it just started working…in my humble opinion. This is just one of those outfits that I felt really good in!
shirt: JCrew / similar
belt: vintage / similar
jeans: American Eagle (see here and here too)
shoes: Target / similar
scarf: Phillip Lim for Target / sold out…try ebay?
I can’t believe we’re closing on Week 3 of the Take One Pass It On Challenge! One more to go! I seriously feel like I just started. Tomorrow I will post a Week 3 Round Up!
So…on Sunday I was pretty ill for all the traveling I did back to Indy. I was in no state for pictures. Once I got home, I thought about recreating my outfit, but I had been wearing the shorts from yesterday’s outfit and I was now back in 35 degree weather. No thanks. I decided to get crafty and thought, “Hmmm…distressed denim shorts….how about TAKING those distressed shorts and PASSING THEM ON appropriately for cold weather in the form of distressed jeans?”
Anyone anyone? What’s that, you say? Perfect? I thought so.
So I mentioned before that I had to exchange this necklace. Once I got it home, I realized there was a defect in that there were two spikes right next to each other (missing a bead in between). I was going to just live with it, but I put it on and it looked stupid, since one of the the spikes was sticking up. I went back to H&M and returned it, in which the cashier gave a little laugh and said, “That’s kind of funny.” I might have laughed too had I not had a flight to catch in 4 hours. And, of course, I just haaad to exchange it before my trip and then I didn’t even end up wearing it in Florida.
