Fall Capsule Wardrobe {Remix Challenge}

fall_capsule_wardrobe

When a new season rolls around, two things happen when it comes to my wardrobe:

  1. My mind immediately goes to what I need to add to my closet, and
  2. I forget how to dress for said season.

This results in me buying new items before I try to remix what I already have. I’ve become a lot better shopper since the challenge, but I want to take the time to figure out what would be most helpful to join my closet.

Starting September 1, I’m planning a capsule wardrobe remix to get me in the fall mood. Want to join me?

Guidelines:

  • Pick 20 clothing items (For me this will be tops and bottoms. Accessories like shoes, scarves, etc. are fair game.)*
  • Make 30 unique outfits.

Each Friday, link up with your new looks (If you don’t have a blog, I believe you can also link up through Go Chic or Go Home).

To start, show us your pieces! Link those beauties up Friday, August 30th.

*Not sure what pieces to choose? Look at other remixes for inspiration:

There are tons out there. My Remix Rewear Restyle pin board might also come in handy!

    I’m going to pass this time around – kinda busy right now :) but if you do it again for winter, I’ll definitely be in.

      That’s the plan! Hope packing is going well :)

    Easy! Only because I probably have less than 20 pieces of clothing that fit right now (thank you pregnancy, lol). Can’t wait to see what you’re remixing :)

      Kat, I love that you always make me laugh. I would never have been able to tell you only have 20ish pieces that fit. You look great every time I see you!

    This sounds like fun! I look forward to seeing what you and everyone else puts together! Maybe I’ll play along at home too :)

    • Caitlin Author August 15, 2013 at 8:08 AM

      You should! It will be fun :)

    This is tempting! I did a 30×30-ish thing in May, and I want to do one for each season, but September is still a little too summer-y around here to make that work. Maybe I’ll do it in October, though.

    Although now I’m thinking… maybe I’ll give up 30 items in September, and if I don’t miss them, they all get donated. Then do my 30×030 in October? Hmm.

      It’s pretty summery here, too, so it may be difficult. But I’m adding in some pieces like pencil skirts and tanks that I can layer and add tights or a cardigan in case it gets cooler. Excited to hear what you decide! :)

    Things like this make me nervous! Haha! Maybe I should try it and see what happens… Lol :-P

    • Caitlin Author August 16, 2013 at 7:34 AM

      You totally should! It’s challenging, but fun. I tried to do a 30 x 30 remix back in the day but failed…then I stuck with my closet last year and realized it wouldn’t have been difficult at all. Especially when others are keeping you accountable and cheering you on :)

    I really want to try this, but I’m new to the world of linking up/blogging in general. How exactly does a linkup work? I have Go Chic or Go Home, but I’d really like to post it on my blog and link up from there if possible!

    • Caitlin Author August 25, 2013 at 5:04 PM

      Alex- great! So glad you plan to try it. I’m planning a post that will explain it, so stay tuned.

  • Alex August 24, 2013 at 1:44 AM

    I’m new to the blogosphere and the concept of linking up. Do I just add a link to your blog in my post, or is there more of a process?

  • Felicia September 15, 2013 at 1:31 AM

    Hi Caitlin! I’ve finally gotten up the courage to join your challenge even though I have followed your blog for a long time. I’m a Christian blogger new to this but willing to give it go!

      Felicia- I’m so glad! I can’t wait to see what you come up with :)
