GYPO Work Wear Challenge Recap

Yes, I can't stop doing fashion challenges. I swear, I really can't help myself. I actually think they're really good for me and I'll tell you why. It helps me target my shopping on a few things that I'm missing from my wardrobe AND, most of all, it forces me to put together things that I wouldn't think of wearing. win win win.

I do need to confess though, I'm terrible at capsule wardrobes in just one way, I won't wear the same piece 2x in one week, nor will I wear something kinda close together. Pants are one thing but tops? Ahhh nope. 

Before I took a 2 week hiatus I posted some of the clothes I put together for the challenge. Here are a few things I put together and wore during the last  weeks. 

OK, I know everyone is sick and tired of the horrible bathroom selfies but it's what I have access to. When we move, I swear I'll get a full length mirror and take my selfies there instead,

Red sweater, red and black polka dot top, black pants and leopard heels. Sweater and top are both from the Limited and old. pants from Macy's and the shoes from somewhere at an outlet mall.

Blue and white polka dot top from Banana Republic, skirt from Spiegle and thrifted.

White shirt and orange pants both from the Limited and leopard shoes,

Black blouse from Loft, skirt from the Limited (seeing a theme yet?) Those shoes are so, so old, I really might have bought them when I worked at Sears in grad school and that was a loooong time ago.

Black and white polka dot top from the Limited, green sweater from and pants from Gap, I can't even tell which shoes I'm wearing. 

Blue polka dotted chambray shirt from Old Navy, orange skirt from the Limited and tan flats with a gold skull on them. (for reals)

Gap sweater, Express tank, White House Black Market jeans and leopard loafers from Macy's

Patterned shirt from the Limited and burgundy pants from Macy's. Flats from Target

Shirt from Nordstrom, black pants, White House Black Market and boots from Macy's. Skull scarf from a store at the beach.

The last day was absolutely my favorite outfit, I FINALLY got to wear my new moto jacket. I thought for a hot minute about wearing my black puffer vest but realized I wold look like Han Solo if I did.

It still might happen because I'm on a quest to be as basic as possible this fall. Scarves and boots and lattes... I just need to stand in a pumpkin patch.

I think the biggest thing I accomplished this challenge was wearing scarves and a white shirt. I waited tables for far too long back in the day and had to wear a white shirt every. single, day. I might not have worn one since. Really, I haven't, until now, and I actually like it.

Scarves are the other big thing. I have a bunch of scarves and haven't worn any because I can't stand all the fabric. I think I finally found some I like though! 

There's just one more week before the Fall Challenge begins. You can STILL sign up here!! I've got most everything ready to go. What I'm going to do during this in between week with no one telling me what to wear, I have no idea.

Linking Up!
