So I missed last week's outfit plan because of the amazing-ness that was the Superbowl, so you all get a double dose today:)

I kind of don't like this shirt the more and more I wear it. It's too short for my liking, but hey I'm determined to prove I wear everything in my closet!!

And then browsing blogs Saturday morning I stumbled upon Sarah's blog and her "Take one, Pass it on" wardrobe challenge and decided I had to try it!! Here's how she explains it:
The Take One, Pass it On Outfit Remix
Here’s how it works:
This remix can be done for any length of time you like: a week, a month, or more. The best part is that there’s no prep work of picking out a bunch of stuff before you start (which is the main reason I never got around to trying 30×30).
On day one, you pick out an outfit just like you normally would.
The next day, take one item from the first day’s outfit and mix it into a new outfit. Obviously, underwear doesn’t count (plus that’s gross), and neither does something like your wedding ring or your jeans that you wear 3 times a week anyway. But it could be a shirt, a dress, a belt, a necklace…whatever!
You can see where this is going…On day three, you would take a different item from the previous day’s outfit and wear it again in a different way. And so on and so on."

This is where the challenge ends, I couldn't find a way to reuse any of the pieces from Wed, plus it's Valentine's and while I don't celebrate this "holiday" because it's not a real holiday!!!, I did feel the need to wear pink to work :)
