Remix #27 of 30 :: black silk dress + drape vest + nude stiletto sandals

I don’t have much time to write today; I have a cooler full of hydrangeas and roses that I have to whip into bridal designs for a wedding and a bucket of sunflowers to drop into mason jars for an event downtown, and I want to breeze through it all so I can get a jump start on the weekend. If you’re interested in behind-the-scenes stuff around the flower shop, you can follow me on Snapchat or Instagram — both ‘keiralennox’ — to see what it’s like to run around like a headless chicken/be a florist. {wink}

Happy Friday, friends!

Remix #26 of 30 :: roll-sleeve shirt + dark skinnies + stacked heel sandals

One of the risks of a small seasonal capsule wardrobe is occasional clothes casualties. Two of my pieces didn’t survive the 30 for 30: I wore my cropped jeans to help with a downtown volunteer project after work and splattered them in red paint; and I washed my black cropped pants in an effort to shrink them a bit, but just faded them instead.  Thank goodness we’re nearing the end, because with my track record of accident-prone clumsiness I’d probably be out of clothes by the end of next month.

Since my bottom options are dwindling and I don’t want to wear my denim cut-offs to work, I’ll have to get a little creative with my remixes over the next few days. This morning I reached into the farthest dark abysses of my closet to find my neglected scarf collection, and pulled out the very lightest linen one I own to zhush up a plain white blouse and skinnies.

 

Almost There!

Remix #25 of 30 :: olive wrap-front top + white ankle skinnies + suede ballet flats

I’ve had a lot of fun with this summer 30 for 30 remix challenge — so much, in fact, I’m thinking of doing a fall version in October! — but I’m ready to wrap it up and let these white ankle skinnies hibernate for a while.
