Remix #6 of 30 :: striped shirt + cropped black chinos + stacked heel sandals
These LOFT cropped Riviera chinos are another example of, “these were perfect in the fitting room, what happened?” I bought them on sale with my cropped denim flares, and wore them for the first time with this outfit. When I looked through the outfit shots we took at the end of the work day, I realized they really stretched out throughout the day. Then I remembered why I never buy chinos; unless they have a healthy dose of spandex to help them hold their shape (these only had 2%).
I’m hoping these will shrink in the wash… if they don’t, this may be the only time you see them remixed in my capsule wardrobe. (You almost didn’t see this outfit, but C reminded me that the whole point of this 30 for 30 challenge is to keep it real and post ’em all, whether I think they’re ‘perfect’ or not.)
Now this striped shirt, on the other hand, never lets me down. It’s the Billabong ‘Traveling Coast’ shirt, and I bought it in two colors from m.marie last season. It’s a light gauze-like fabric that’s cool and comfy in the summer; you can expect to see lots of it through this remix challenge.
Returning Perfect Black Tailored Ankle Pants to my shopping list when this challenge ends.
