i couldn’t resist.
on a more serious note…what i learned from the 11 for 30 (turned 35).
- remixing can create an almost infinite number of outfits; it’s all in how you style the look as a whole.
- styling the shirt (untucked, partial tuck, full tuck, knotted), belting, and accessories are the easiest way to create a unique ensemble.
- simplifying saves time. during june, it took me all of 5 minutes a morning to get dressed. the first day i had my entire closet to choose from, i took over half an hour and ended up forcing myself out the door so i wouldn’t be late.
- fill your closet with quality pieces that mix and match, fit well, and make you feel like a million bucks. i believe it’s better to have a few pieces you love than tons that you’re ambivalent about.
i’m taking a break from the 11 pieces for a while, but a few posts are in the works that will show how i combined pieces to make outfits. if you’re new to remixing, i’ve found the more i experiment and use pinterest, blogs, etc. to find inspiration, the better i become at it. i hope it will be something that inspires you to use pieces you already own to create new ensembles.
it felt great to push myself this past month, but amazing to have my closet back! thanks for reading along :) happy friday!!
