30 for 30: Outfit 9
Last night I could not fall asleep. This is evident by my 2AM outfit post...what else was I gonna do while D was snoozing away?:) I was finally able to fall asleep around 3:30...and then my alarm went off at 6:45. I meant to snooze for 10 minutes, but in my hazy state I accidentily turned off my alarm off and woke up again at 9:00...oops! I think my body was telling me that I really needed to sleep more...and I always like to listen when my body tells me to sleep...mmm...I love sleep:)
Well, now that I am up and I woke up too late to attempt to go to school (oops!), I have been super productive cooking and preparing for Shabbos. Already I have made green beans, popcorn cauliflower, coconut lime tart, tri-color garlic roasted potatoes, pesto sauce, bread is rising and fish is in the oven...phew! We are having our best friends over for Shabbos dinner tonight! Shout-out to Y&D and their son K, and Y&A...when we all get together we always have a blast!
This vest is a bit spring-y but I wanted to add it into my 30 for 30 because I wanted to challenge myself to style it for winter. I have been seeing on a bunch of blogs how girls are reworking items for multiple seasons and it really helps to stretch your closet to wear items after their designated season. I am going to start trying to do that more and I think that this periwinkle vest is a great way to start:) This button down has a great ruffle/pleat detail so I decided to layer it underneath my vest. I paired it with my black pencil skirt, wore my black fringy moccasins and completed the ensemble with a long strand of pearls
Vest: Banana Republic
Tights: Century 21 (Hue)
Boots: Zappos (Minnetonka)
Necklace: Forever 21
Do you rework items for different seasons? What are some of your ideas for remixing items for multi-season wear?
