30 for 30: Outfit 14









Occasion:

I had a day off from school today thanks to President's Day, and what better to do with a day off than run around like a chicken with your head cut off doing errands all day!? That's exactly what I did. D made me a HUGE list of things to do last night and today I accomplished all but one of them...it was a tremendously productive day!

And just when we thought we were getting rid of Old Man Winter for good, it had to go an snow again...ugh! I was so excited to see grass, err...mud...err anything other than a dirty white covering. Well that only lasted a few days and now we are back to a (fresh at least) white blanket. Let's hope this groundhog keeps his promise and that this new snow is gone soon.

As I have mentioned previously, one thing that this remix is teaching me is how to remix items past their designated season. Take this blouse for instance. It was a transitional summer-to-fall piece probably meant to be worn with bare legs, strappy sandals and short or a mini skirt. I wanted to add some fun patterned pieces to my 30 for 30 pics and I thought that this blouse was just the item. Now, mid-February, paired with a knee-length skirt, fun fishnets, and my suede MacAlister boots, it fits perfectly into a winter ensemble. A few accessories such a the fun gold charm leather belt and a cool African beaded necklace complete the look.

Outfit:

Black Undershirt: Pink Orchid

Blouse: J.CREW

Skirt: GAP

Belt: J.CREW

Tights: Target

Shoes: J.CREW

Necklace: Kenyan Street Fair Vendor in MD


Did you get more snow? How are you remixing your items past their season?
