Creative Remixing

Remixes # 17 & 18 of 30 :: shirt dress + wrap skirt + nude stilettos

When your wardrobe options are limited, you have to get creative: put a wrap skirt over a shirt dress and it looks just like a cute sleeveless top. Remixing is all about using your favorite pieces in unexpected ways, which is why I love the 30 for 30 challenge.

(I’ve also worn this LOFT tie-waist shirt dress over my white ankle skinny jeans, bloused up over the waist tie to shorten the length so it looks like a tunic shirt.)

    Whenever I read about re-mixing clothes I get so inspired, but then I go to my closet and can never figure out how to do that with my own wardrobe! :/

  4. I seriously want a shopping/thrifting date or an afternoon with you in my closet! I’ve only gone shopping ONCE in the last two years. My pocketbook appreciates it, but my look needs HALLLLPPPPP. I love the fact that you turned this into another completely different outfit. In your words-ish: I’m just a girl, standing in front of her closet, asking it to turn into Nordstrom. Or at least Nordstrom Rack. :-/

  • The only thing that would’ve made this @bonappetitmag ‘white pesto pasta’ better is if @lallimusic was in my kitchen when I made it. (I re-watched her video as I prepped, which was the next best thing.) Guys, I cannot overstate the seriousness of my obsession with the @bonappetitmag YouTube channel. Most of my bookmarks on my phone are videos of recipes I want to try, and I’m slowly making my way through ‘em; kind of like ‘Julie & Julia’ but with fewer live lobsters and a little less butter.

  • Spotted this pretty blooming bush on our evening walk through the neighborhood. 
Doak got a little *too* close to the smell the flowers. 🤣
  • In today’s edition of #sundaybaking, I took on @bonappetitmag’s ‘best chocolate chip cookies’. I watched the video first — if you’re not following the @bonappetitmag YouTube channel, get on it! — then used the recipe from BA’s website to guide me through it. 
Crispy edges + a chewy center + brown butter + giant chunks of 70% dark chocolate = a pretty perfect cookie. 🍪
@moroccochris - I salute you.

  • Clearance vase jackpot at @pier1 this weekend. There are so many great colors and textures in all shapes and sizes from $10-30 with an extra 25% off. ⁣
This was the ultimate test of self-control for me...⁣
I bought 5.
  • Saturday errand style f/ two #styleonabudget favorites from last summer that are still going strong: this gingham ruffle cami I found on a clearance rack at @target + a rattan circle bag I bought for around $25 on @amazon. 
I’m killing the cost-per-wear game with these two. 😏 #whatiwore #ootd #summerstyle #stylefiles
