30 X 30 Remix Challenge

Outfit #3 & #4

Slide1

Black, white and gray are a no fail combination. When I make outfits for the 30 x 30 remix challenge, I choose one item of clothing that I want to wear and then build an outfit around it. In outfit #3, I chose the sweater and in #4, I chose the skirt. Both outfits taught me lessons.

Outfit #3 taught me how much I love this sweater! It is from The Limited and is pretty old, but I have never gotten rid of it. Now I know why. It’s a thick, cozy sweater that’s not itchy and the weave has a little stretch in it, so it doesn’t look baggy and oversized. It also layers really well under a peacoat.

Jeans & boots, Old Navy. Hat, H&M.

Outfit #4 taught me how crafty I have become. The skirt I wore was made from an ill-fitting dress from Forever21. The dress looked like this:

The top part of the dress was too large, so I cut it off and made the bottom part a skirt. This is the first time I am wearing it as such, and what a great idea! I added a white T, a color blocked blazer and black boots. The blazer and skirt were a winning combination, the boots were just plain comfortable.

I wore this spiked necklace from H&M, but it refused to lay flat [as you can tell in the picture], but I got over it.

Enjoy the one’s you love and Check back soon for outfit #5
