15 + 16: Take One Pass it On, Part 2 - Lace Blouse, Pink-Striped Wedges and Tie Dye Shorts.

Hey there. Happy Hump Day Everyone!! So yesterday, I showed you guys round one of my "Take One Pass it On" Challenge within my 30 for 30 Summer Closet Remix Challenge. It seems like most of you preferred the second outfit from yesterday with the Lace+Chiffon Blouse which has a little cut-out on the back. I feel torn however because I also loved my bold mixing with my Gray+White Floral Tank Top. But, I did transfer that Pretty Lace+Chiffon Blouse into my second Outfit today. Let's see both of Today's Looks in further detailing.
The next day, I took the same Lace+Chiffon+Chambray Blouse - that I wore the previous Evening from a Baby Shower I attended - and put it together with my Orange Neon Tie-Dye Shorts. I even took the same Espadrille Wedges and put them into this Outfit. I figured the Neon Pink from the Shoes played off the Neon Orange from the Shorts, while the Top was the perfect Neutral. I added  Coral+Yellow Enamel Bangles, my Coral Belt and Coral Teardrop Earrings. I definitely dressed up these Shorts a little. I ended up loving the outcome, how about you?

Hot Pink, Multi-Colorful Stripped Wedge Espadrilles: Payless (very similar, SAVE), (similar + great deal, love these), (similar, SPLURGE).

Later that day, I switched up my Top and wore more Comfortable Sandals, while keeping on the same Shorts. I finally (after 15 Outfits) wore my Sequined White Tank that I had included for this challenge and so far there are 2 more Tops that have never been worn, and you haven't seen my Denim Vest either. That is because the first 2 weeks of this challenge the weather was hot. This Outfit for example is from August 29th. It was worn the evening before we left for our second little vacation. It was a very hot day and I opted for no jewelry at all. This isn't my Most Favorite Outfit of all but it works. After all the Off-White Top plays the Off-White part of Shorts. What do you think?

Take One Pass It On: Side by Side.
1. The Floral Skirt.
2. The Lace Blouse + the Striped Wedges.
3. The Tie Dye Shorts.
(and to round it up: for the last outfit I wore the same sandals as for the first outfit of this "take one, pass it on challenge")
4. The Pewter Sandals.
And since this has been the week of remixing my wardrobe and showing you two ways of wearing different pieces, there will be another two-fer post, tomorrow, Thanks for reading. =)
