More Yellow

Maybe this challenge should have been called, “Wear Something Yellow, Pass It On.”

Today I’m repeating the sandals from Friday, which have now lived through their 10th summer. I love them, so let’s hope they make it through 2015 as well!

Cardigan: Loft, resale, ca. 2014

Green and khaki-ish

Did you notice how I arranged my pass-it-ons so that I would be wearing our school uniform colors on Friday? I’m pretty proud of myself.

I’ve been thinking about retiring these dot jeans because I’ve been leaning toward a plainer style lately, but I got so many compliments on them today that I guess I’ll keep them for a while.

Sweater: Banana Republic, ca. 2008

Gray Jeans

These gray jeans have been a go-to lately, so it’s only fair that they get repeated as part of the take-one-pass-it-on challenge!

Jeans: Anthropologie, ca. 2014

Sweater: Banana Republic, ca. 2008

Shoes: Clarks, ca, 2014

So, apparently I like yellow.

After I posted yesterday about how I never wear colors, I was scrolling through some old posts and realized that that’s not true. Apparently I wear yellow all the time. I also wear green a lot.  Maybe the strep throat affected my ability to perceive color? 

In other news, there has been a giant marker stain on the sleeve of this sweater for the past two days and nobody except me noticed. They also did not noticed that I wore the same bright yellow sweater two days in a row. Which makes me wonder, does anyone ever actually look at me? 

Cardigan: Target, ca. 2010

Brightening my day

Lately I seem to be gravitating toward neutrals…so I thought I’d mix it up with my bright yellow sweater. I plan to wear it again tomorrow! Hopefully it will brighten both my day and the day of those around me!

Picking up where I left off

An attack of strep throat kept me from blogging last week, but I’m back! Here I’m repeating a week ago Friday’s top with some different pants and shoes. (We’ll just pretend like that whole missing week never happened, mm-kay?)

Friday was a little bit boring and monochromatic with just jeans and a t-shirt…

Jeans: Gap, ca. 2012

T-shirt: Gap, ca. 2014

Slides: Birkenstock, ca. 2009

…so I tried to jazz the jeans up a bit on Monday…

Shirt: H&M, ca. 2013

Sandals: Madewell, ca. 2014

…then I kept the sandals and added a maxi dress and jean jacket on Tuesday…

Day 9: Yellow pants

I promise you I did wear these pants yesterday, with my brown heels from Wednesday. A funny story that may illuminate why there’s no photographic evidence:

Yesterday was kind of the pits for various reasons that I won’t go into here, but I was completely worn out after work, and then had to go get my hair cut (see picture: shorter bangs) and pick up my weekly produce box. When I finally got close to home I decided I couldn’t deal with dinner and was going to go to Taco Bell. (I’m telling you, extreme measures were in order.) I ordered, paid, got my drink, and drove off. There was a lot of honking behind me, and I was like, “What’s all that honking?” I got about two stoplights away and realized that there was in fact no Taco Bell food in my car. I had driven off without it and the customers behind me were honking to let me know! So I had to go back to Taco Bell to retrieve the food. The drive-through guy and I had a good laugh, which was literally the highlight of my day. By the time I got home all I could do was put on pajamas, eat Taco Bell, and watch 3 episodes of White Collar. (Love that show!) 

But today was a much better day, I cooked at home using veggies from the produce box, and I did take a picture. Here’s what I’m wearing:

Shirt: Splendid via Macy’s, ca. 2014

Pants: Anthropologie, ca. 2014

Shoes: J Crew, resale, ca. 2014

Vest Dressed

On Wednesday I was pretty brave and wore Tuesday’s dress and just threw a vest over it.  I don’t know if either no one noticed or no one wanted to ask why I was wearing the same clothes again!

Dress: Gap Outlet, ca. 2012

Vest: Old Navy, ca. 2013

Clogs: Dansko, ca. 2014

Emboldened with getting away with such a blatant repeat on Wednesday, I wore the vest again today…

Vest: Old Navy, ca. 2013

T-shirt: Uniqlo, ca. 2013

Jeans: Gap, ca. 2012

Sandals: American Eagle Outfitters, ca. 2014
