I know you’ve slept since then, but remember on Tuesday when I wore a green sweater? Well, that’s the piece I chose to “pass on” to today’s outfit as part of the Take One, Pass It On challenge. Admittedly, I struggled with whether or not to wear the emerald green sweater with the cobalt pants and the polka dots because I was afraid it would look too clownish. But in the end I obviously went with the two bright colors and just decided that I would be vibrant today.

I also think this would look good with tan, gray, or navy bottoms. Or, if the polka dots on my top were black instead of navy, black pants or skirt. Or, you know, if you had some, you could wear it with purple bottoms. Or jeans. But since it’s Thursday and not Friday no jeans for me.

But, speaking of jeans, you can probably guess what I’ll be taking from this outfit to wear on Friday, yes?
