It’s time for the latest installment of the No Repeat Work Wear Challenge. I finished up week #3, and I’m still feeling fairly confident about it. If you don’t know about the challenge, you can find the full explanation/Week #1 here and Week #2 here.
Let’s take a look at this week’s outfits!
On Monday, I was eager to try out the brand new Johanna top from Boutique of Molly. I thought this gorgeous piece deserved to be paired with more than my usual jeans, so I dug out my floral Ann Taylor pencil skirt. I purchased it about 7 years ago, and I think I’ve only worn it a handful of times. See! This challenge is already getting me to give some neglected items some love! I finished off the look with my studded Michael Kors flats. I’ve had them for years, and they’ve definitely suffered some wear. But I’m gonna keep using them until they fall apart! I must have started the week off right because I got the most compliments on this look.
The Johanna top is still available on the Boutique of Molly site, so if you want one for yourself you can save 20% using ANGIESCODE at check out.
I received no money for this post, and the top was purchased (for a discount) with my own money.
On Tuesday, I was feeling a bit more casual. I put a striped, long sleeved J.Crew t-shirt under my good ol’ H&M Kids overalls. They overalls are super comfy, and the tee is incredibly soft. Unfortunately, the heat in Denmark hadn’t gone away, so I was sweating all…day…long. Full sleeves were not a great choice, but thankfully, you can’t see how hot I was in the photo. I added the same powder blue loafers that I used last week to complete the outfit, and I loved wearing it even with the high temperature.
On Wednesday, I was apparently giving off some strong 70s vibes. I tried to dress smarter for the heat, so I picked a new pair of lightweight, chambray trousers from Banana Republic, and a sleeveless, orange top from Ann Taylor Loft. The top is the patterned sister of the white top I wore in Week 1. On my feet, I went with the comfy tan shoes that I wore last Tuesday. I’m just a teensy bit obsessed with them. This look is not my usual style, but I got a lot of compliments anyway!
On Thursday, the heat was really starting to get to me. To be perfectly honest, I completely gave up on being cute. It was unbearably hot in my classroom and of my three windows, only one actually opens all the way. There’s not air conditioning in Denmark, because most of the time, there’s no need for it. To combat the heat, I wore some loose fitting, olive green, drawstring pants from Forever 21 with black and white, patterned tank I found at Banana Republic. The sandals are by Kenneth Cole, and they’re the black version of the silver ones I wore last week.
On Friday, the weather started to cool down a tiny bit, so I was less cranky. I wore a short sleeved, striped blouse and tucked it into some minty blue jeans I found in the kids’ clearance on the H&M site. I finished the outfit with the same Michael Kors flats that I wore on Monday.
These are the 5 outfits of the week. I am trying my hardest to keep things fresh and mix things up a titch. So far so good, but there’s a ridiculous amount of weeks to go. Like, I’m pretty sure there’s almost 40 weeks until summer vacation. 40 weeks. Which means I still need to come up with slightly less than 200 outfits! Thankfully there’s some weeks off for vacation and some random holidays here and there, so it’s actually more like 160-180ish. But still! That’s a lot of unique looks I need to put together.
Eeesh. What did I get myself into??
What was your favorite look of the week? Do you think I can make it to June??
