Take One, Day 2 :: Tribal Cardigan

It's day two of the Take One, Pass it On challenge, ie the first actual interesting day. I may have eluded to using this cardigan again...and I did. I let it hang loose over a dress and some leggings and it was the perfect mall outfit. And how weird is it that I have a scarf the same color as this dress? And if you're wondering why my legs look kind of elephanty, that's because I finished the outfit off with flat over-the-knee boots.

Take One, Day 1 :: A Cozy Tribal Sweater

 The original title of this post was "A Tribe Called Quest Print Love" but since that's actually really dumb, I simplified it. Look! Urban Outfitters sends you stickers in the mail when you order a pretty sweater!

 So today is the first day of Take One, Pass it On, and I decided to wear a ton of new things all at once because I simply cannot wait for them to all have their turns. I can name three bloggers off the top of my head who encouraged me to buy this sweater simply by posting adorable pictures of them in it and talking about how comfortable it is. I'm always looking for what I call an "airport sweater", which is a cozy wrap sweater that feels like a snuggie but looks like a fashion statement. I don't care if I never wear anything else. I love this thing.

 And these boots! I added them to a growing collection of boots that make me feel far cooler than I actually am. They feel so European. I've never been to Europe, so I actually can't even make that comparison, but whatever. All the countries I've been to you didn't even have to wear shoes. What I'm saying is - these things are cool.

The end of this story is, I wore this to Texas Roadhouse, ate a huge piece of meat, and I'm going to use the Take One Remix Challenge as an excuse to wear this bad boy again tomorrow. BOOM.

AJ Wears :: A Bow Blouse

 It started thawing out today and hit a week high of about 44 degrees, so I ventured out to the mall and hit the sale racks. I took the opportunity to wear this blouse that I bought at a vintage shop in Madison literally a year and a half ago. It's one of those super puffy blouse-y shirts that's not easy to style, but I love the big bow. Side story: one time my friends and I texted for like a week and a half arguing over whether or not the proper name of tie blouses was "pussy bow". No concrete conclusion was made.

 Not gonna lie, I'm feeling a little "hot for teacher" today but seeing as how I'm not allowed near small children, I figured it was okay. Then when I was in the Limited, I bought a skirt that I actually liked with this outfit even better, but I'd already taken these pictures and figured I'd save it for later and not be one of those girls who puts on everything new they just bought in one outfit. Even though I'm TOTALLY that kind of girl.
