Season Remix: Bright lace skirt

IMG_0266

The final piece I remixed in my Season Remix mini-series is my bright lace skirt from Francesca’s! This was an impulse purchase I made two springs ago. I love the lace overlay, and the color is wonderful and vibrant, but I’m not sure how well it meshes with the rest of my wardrobe–hence the reason why I haven’t been wearing it that much. This made it a good candidate for this remix; I need to work with what I’ve got and give the skirt a new “spin” on life.

In my last post, I mentioned that it hasn’t been warm enough to go sans tights, which is what one would expect in a normally wintery climate in early February. Well, we made new record high temperatures yesterday AND today and I was -this close- to going tightless. I can’t actually believe this weather, but I’m not complaining! I know that winter will rear its cold, red face again soon enough. (It is kind of ironic that I’m doing this series during one of the warmest weeks of the winter, haha…poor timing!) I wore this outfit yesterday and was perfectly comfortable in my mint sweater and regular opaque tights. I really like how well the sweater and skirt go together!

Season Remix: Rainbow striped dress

The second item I’m remixing for winter is my rainbow striped dress–an oldie-but-goodie from ModCloth. I technically did wear it in the winter once, but I don’t count it because I never actually wore that outfit anywhere except in my living room for outfit photos, lol (oh how naive I was when I first started blogging). Its bright colors lend itself as a perfect spring/summer dress, and the material is suitable for slightly-more-formal events. I enjoyed the challenge of styling it for winter!

I decided to layer a cropped sweater over the dress and added the booties for some fun. I was originally going to go with sheer black tights, and then I thought about opaque black tights, but I ultimately decided on these beige tights because it seemed like too much going on with the different shades of grey/black. I think I would have preferred the outfit with no tights, but Mother Nature hasn’t been that kind to us lately.

Season Remix: Pink gingham shirt

IMG_0006

This week, I’m sharing a mini series that I’ve dubbed “Season Remix”. I’ll be sharing three outfits featuring three items that are primarily spring/summer pieces and not necessarily ones that I’d wear in the fall or winter. I wanted to challenge myself to style these warm-weather pieces for the winter in an effort to get more out of my closet. 🙂

First up is this light pink gingham button-down shirt I purchased from J.Crew Factory about a year ago. It’s a super fun piece to wear in the spring and summer because of the color; normally in the fall and winter, you see more black or navy ginghams. It’s a very lightweight shirt, which is great in summer heat. However, this also makes it conducive to layering in the fall/winter because it doesn’t feel too bulky under sweaters like most other cool-weather button-downs do. I layered it under my navy sweater and decided to go as preppy as possible with the addition of the pearl necklace and tall boots. I’d love to hear how you’d style a pink gingham shirt for the fall/winter!
