All The Cool Kids Are Doing It: TOPIO

I subscribe to a number of blogs and I noticed that several are doing the Take One, Pass It On Challenge from Sarah's Real Life blog.  Basically, you take one item from your outfit and wear it in the next outfit and then take another item from that outfit and pass it on to the next, etc.  Sarah started at the beginning of the month, but I am a bandwagon fan and I wanted to make sure it was the "cool" thing to do before I jumped in.  Now that I know all the cool kids are doing it, I can jump in, too.  I honestly don't know how long I will be able to keep it up. But I did today! We took this when we ran out for coffee and I didn't realize I was holding the cup during the first photo and Mr. Fantastic doesn't do repeats. :/
Top: Victoria’s Secret; Jeans: Citizens of Humanity Thompson (buy)
Scarf: Target: Bracelet: c/o BaubleBar (2012)
Tote: Calvin Klein (buy in white for summer)
Shoes: Sam Edelman
I picked up this shirt last year during a Victoria's Secret sale. It was on clearance for $9.99 so I picked up this one and another one in blue.  I'd save them for summer but I wanted to wear grey and didn't want to wear a sweater.  I am honestly not expecting these to last a long time, which is why I don't pay full price. They are made of a material called "modal" but I think it's a jersey/cotton blend and while they are comfortable, my VS shirts usually don't last longer than a season. I won't be mad when these $10  shirts fall apart.
So...I took the red scarf from my This Old Thing post and wore it today. You can read more about the Take One, Pass It On Challenge at Sarah's Real Life blog here, or see how Franziska and Kimmie are working their wardrobe.  This week, I am also linking up with Tara of the Penniless Socialite and Sharon of The Tiny Heart for their Look What I Got Link Up.

Have a great Valentine's Day tomorrow! We will be celebrating our 42nd Monthiversary, but don't tell my husband.  He's decided it's just another Valentine's Day! :)


  1. I've seen this challenge on other blogs and it's a neat idea! Love the two different ways you styled this scarf. Haha about the 42ns monthiversary, that is hilarious!
