31 Days, 31 Ways Remix Day 4 + Pieces Link Up

31 Days, 31 Ways Remix Day 4 + Pieces Link Up

It’s already time for Day 4’s Prompt for the 31 Days, 31 Ways Remix! How’s it going so far? I hope you’re stretching yourself to find new outfits. I had to pre-wear my 31 looks to have them ready for y’all, but I’m creating new looks right along with you. You can follow those on Instagram if you like!

Today’s challenge is to mix color families: brights, pastels, neutrals, jewel tones. Pick two- or more, if you’re feeling brave!

31 Days, 31 Ways Day 4

Greater Than Rubies

A few tips and tricks to get you started:

  • How to dress it up: Change the cardigan for a structured jacket and swap the booties for heels. Add a few pieces of jewelry like a pendant and a classic watch to pull it all together. Optional: tuck the top in and add a belt if you want the look to be a bit more styled.
  • How to dress it down: This is a pretty casual look, but you could go a little more dressed down with boyfriend jeans, or add a head scarf or hat to give it a bohemian vibe.
  • Use this Pinterest board as a starting point for some great color combinations.
  • You could also try one of my favorite tricks: hold an item in a color you want to wear up to the rest of your pieces in your closet and see what pops out at you. It will help you look at your closet in a whole new way!
  • Choosing unique color palettes like the one above helps you appear more modern. Pairing primary colors can look young, and while black goes with everything, try other neutrals like browns, tans, or grays for a fresh spin on your look.

Alright, enough chit chat. Let’s get moving! Head to that closet and put together an outfit for tomorrow! If you’re up for it, share your look with us using the hashtag #31days31waysremix.

Today is also the day to link up your pieces, if you’ve chosen to limit yourself to a set amount. If you haven’t, it’s totally fine to link up a post about what you’re learning during the remix. We want to hear from you, too!

Before we take a look at my pieces, I want you to know I plan to post the photos of them soon, as promised, but my dad had to go to the hospital and have emergency surgery this week- he’s fine, praise God! but something had to go on the to do list, and getting the pieces photographed and uploaded was it.

In the meantime, here they are, listed out. I’ll let you know when they’ve been updated if you want to have a look. I wanted to continue the ’31’ trend, so I chose 31 of my favorite pieces for this remix.

    Safe healing and peace to your father, Caitlin.

    Thanks again for running 31 Days, 31 Ways (and for answering my question last week!). I’m looking forward to the month of October.

      Thank you, Lissa! You’re so welcome! I am, too :) Have a great week!

    Hi Catilin, I have a question! This is my first remix/challenge, and I’m super new to the whole remix thing – so I decided not to limit my number of pieces – I’m curious what’s lurking in my whole closet! Anyway, I’ve actually got blog posts written for each of the first three days, describing each outfit and what I learned through the prompt. So my question is: link up to each one here? Or just pick one? Or save all three for next week when we showcase looks 1-7? I was also thinking of doing a recap of the week after day 7 and linking just that post to the second link up. But not sure if I should link up anything this week or wait…

    Anyway, there’s a VERY good chance I’m overthinking this, but I just didn’t want to be annoying my first remix by doing it “wrong”! ;)

    Thinking good thoughts for your dad!

      Hi Chessa! I’m so glad you’re participating! No worries at all. You can really do whatever you like. I would suggest linking up either 1-7 or the recap to this Friday’s link up post so that everyone will see your outfits when they’re looking for everyone else’s. Don’t worry about doing it “wrong.” You can’t :) Let me know if you have any questions, and I’m excited to see what you’ve come up with!

    I love this outfit!

      Thanks, Victoria! :)
