Closet Challenge!

Hello! I am excited for my first three outfits put together for the Closet Challenge at Well To Do, You. I hope you enjoy! (Funny side note: I actually wore this cardigan two days in a row, to WORK! I thought I could wing it since once was the 'Work' look, and the other was my 'Date' look...well, just like on the red carpet (although my desk is far from it) a co-worker and I had the same cardigan on! She assumed since I wore it the day before she was safe to wear it for our client meeting. Ha! Wasn't she surprised when I walked in with it on, again. Whoops! But I guess it goes to show you that you really can get several looks from one great piece from your closet.

For Work

- Peachish/Pink J Crew Jackie Cardigan (outlet)
- Gold lobster claw SeaBag
- 7's Jeans (consignment shop in Portland, OR this summer, only $45)
- Gray Old Navy ballet flats- tag sale $2...they were new
- Cream Talbots silk tank top- $39
- Turquoise and gold J Crew necklace $49
- Faux and real gold bangles (its OK to mix!)
- Faux pearl magnet clasp bracelet- hand-me-down from mom
- Turquoise clasp bracelet J Crew (outlet)

For Weekend

- Peachish/Pink J Crew Jackie Cardigan (outlet)
- (Really old) Monogrammed LL Bean tote
- Gray and white striped Calvin Klein top- TJ Maxx
- The Ropes bracelet (love) from Anna at Spaces and designed by friend Shana
- Steve Madden tall brown boots from Macy's- $69
- 7s jeans- had forever and love

For Date

- Peachish/Pink J Crew Jackie Cardigan (outlet)
- Gray/silver dress from Old Navy (winter) - $29
- Kate Spade brown nylon purse (Seattle days)
- Cream pashmina from my Nana
- J Crew earrings from my niece Lucy (aka sister) for Christmas :)
- Boots from consignment shop- $12 (score!)
- White and gold bracelet from Brookie- Nordstroms (I believe)
- Same faux and real gold bracelets from other looks!

So there you have it! Three great looks, all made with my closet and using the same cardigan! And don't forget, second hand/consignment shops are a MUST! You can get so many great deals and excellent finds (and hey, it is recycling isn't it?!)

Stay tuned for more looks over at
