A Tough One

So the Take One, Pass it On challenge was definitely a challenge today. Review yesterday’s outfit if you please. The pieces of my outfit were: black sweater, mint pants, pink pumps, and a bow bracelet. I had already worn the sweater twice, so that was ruled out. I wasn’t going to repeat the shoes because I was going to class, and I’m not about to walk up and down stairs with a heavy backpack in 3″ heels. I’m just not. And the bracelet seemed like cheating.

As you can see, I was left with one option. I was skeptical of wearing these semi-dressy pants to school, so I dressed it down the best way I knew: with a sweatshirt.

And that’s why I think the Take One challenge is so great. I really like this outfit and I never would have put it together without this crazy remix thing. (Do you hear that? …It’s the sound of me tooting my own horn.)

  1. I love the gray and mint together – very cute. I hope you don’t take this the wrong way…but I’m not sure I love the shape of those pants on you though….I feel like if the ankle is that wide, they should be a couple of inches longer. I love the pattern SO much though, I’d be tempted to see if they could be tailored into more of a cigarette silhouette.

    It could also be that I’m just not quite used to the ankle pant esthetic, so feel free to tell me to jump off a cliff. 😉 The shoulder detail on the sweatshirt is super cute too – really keeps it from being plain old sweater and makes it stylish.

    • Cliff jumping unnecessary!!! Thanks for the feedback…I like how these pants look, although I could like them even better if the leg were slimmer. I might think about having them taken in at the bottom at some point in the future. Thanks for your feedback!

  2. I’m glad I crawled out from under the rock I’ve been living under to see this fablousness. First of all this challenge is marvelous, those pants kick ass and I love this outfit. Thanks for making it worth my while to open my computer, gurl.
