Take One, Day 17 :: Leggings? Again?

Okay guys, hear me out. I backed myself into a corner with today's Pass it On challenge. Originally I thought I'd remix the cardigan, but then we got caught in a torrential downpour and the sleeves got weirdly stretched out. I tried it on today and realized I couldn't wear it again today - if EVER. That bad. And I sure as heck wasn't wearing the sweater vest again. So that left the leggings and the boots, and I'm tired of wearing flat black boots, so look! Leggings again! As it so happens, "How to wear leggings" is one of the top referring search terms on my blog, so I guess I'm just giving the masses what they want - more ways to be lazy.

I made sure I wouldn't end up in this situation again tomorrow - I PILED on the new stuff. I can remix a blazer, dress, scarf, or boots with my next outfit - lots of options. Anyway, tonight we went downtown to meet up for Tech Drinks with other local dorks and then hit up Bar Louie for $1 burger night. Tuesdays, right???

Take One, Day 4 :: Polka Dot Blouse

Y'all know I couldn't buy a new shirt and resist wearing it twice. I did it with the tribal cardigan, and I'm doing it again with this polka dot blouse. I'd had a spotted shirt on my wishlist for this month, so I was tickled black and white when I found this one on a random rack at XXI for $13. It's a bit of a weird shape, so it needs some help in the waist area either from a belt, sweater, or tuck.

Since I dressed it up yesterday, I went with something a little more casual today. I originally had wanted to wear this blouse with some red trousers, but my thighs have grown substantially since I last wore them. Time to hit the gym, none of my pants fit. We'll chalk it up to being a blissful newlywed. And the holidays. Oh, and eating like a total pig lately. I might just buy bigger pants, as eating is the only thing I may like even more than clothes.

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.

Sweater, Urban Outfitters.
Dress, Forever 21.
Bag, JustFab.
Boots, Some weird store in McCain Mall.
