Take One Pass It On (TOPIO) Day 1

I'm always looking for more fun things to do to get myself into pulling out things in my wardrobe that haven't seen the light of day in awhile. While it is always fun to buy new things sometimes rediscovering a favorite or why I purchased a particular item is almost better because well, I've already purchased it.

Over at Sarah's Real Life by way of Franish I saw her post the idea of a wardrobe challenge called take one pass it on, otherwise dubbed as TOPIO. The rules are simple - for however long you want (a week, two weeks, a month) you pull one piece from the outfit you wore the day before into your current one. Sounds good, yeah? So for this week I'm going to give it a try.

I didn't want to overdue it with accessories on this one since the sparkles make it a statement piece. So I added the J Crew desert bloom bracelet to have a bit more fun on my wrist. I'm realizing that I don't have that many bracelets... so I may have to do something to remedy this soon. ;)

I may have found my new favorite nail polish color but alas the nail polish had no name tag at the salon. Eep! But here it is in the bottle, for now it shall be called nameless Essie polish that is really awesome.

Also, bright new shots from the new office bathroom above. Hello light and almost full sized mirror! This will definitely have to do for the days when my camera doesn't want to work (eep, it's almost 5 years old..).

So.. tomorrow I shall use something from my outfit and make something new. Stay tuned!

Are you taking part of the TOPIO challenge?
