Sweater – Gap (similar) | Scarf – H&M via Poshmark (use code HBAMM for $5 credit!)(similar) | Dress as a skirt – The Limited (similar dress) | Shoes – Nine West (similar) | Belt – came with a top from The Limited (similar) | Tights – Target (similar)

As I sat at my desk eating my lunch yesterday I kept thinking to myself “don’t spill, don’t spill, don’t spill!”  Because, you see, I’m wearing the same red sweater as yesterday and if I’d spilled something on it then I’d be without my take one, pass it on piece for today!

Yes, I chose the red sweater to pass on.  Did you guess that’s what I’d wear?


Although, let’s be honest, I totally stole this outfit idea from Jen at Librarian for Life Style.  She also paired her polka dot dress with a red sweater and a black and white polka dot scarf and I thought, hey, I have all those pieces!

So here they are.  And huge thanks to Jen for the idea!  I’m still wrapping my brain around wearing dresses as skirts but this one works perfectly.

Also, in response to your comments on my reader survey I made sure that every piece listed today as a similar item is under $30!  In fact, if you wanted to recreate this outfit with all the items I linked it would cost you $120.49 (excluding tax and stuff).  And every single piece here can be worn multiple ways so they would all be great additions to your wardrobe.

And speaking of wearing items multiple ways, which item do you think I’ll be passing on to tomorrow?
