Fall Capsule Wardrobe Remix: The Pieces




The Fall Capsule Wardrobe Remix is heeeeeeeeeere!

The goal of our remix is to remember how to dress for the new season, appreciate and remix what we already have in our closets and take the time to figure out what {if anything} would be a good addition to our wardrobes. It’s always inspiring to see how others remix what they have, and we can cheer each other on as we go!

Remix Guidelines:

  • Pick 20 clothing items (For me this will be tops and bottoms. Accessories like shoes, scarves, etc. are fair game. If you want to be brave and include those items as part of your 20, go for it!)
  • Make 30 unique outfits.

Each Friday, link up with your new looks.

Now- let’s see your pieces! {See below for details on my pieces.}

    Yay! I’m so excited for this remix! It seems we’ve picked-out some similar shirts. I’m looking forward to seeing how you style them :)

    • Caitlin Author August 31, 2013 at 10:22 AM

      Whitney- so excited to see what you come up with! I like that we chose some similar items- as did Alex. I think as we all move through the challenge, it’ll be helpful to get remixing ideas from one another.

  • Alex August 31, 2013 at 2:06 AM

    Our choices seem pretty similar! Yay fall :)

    • Caitlin Author August 31, 2013 at 10:20 AM

      Now if only the temperatures will cooperate… :) I’m excited you’ve decided to push yourself and include shoes in your number. Can’t wait to see what you come up with!

    hi caitlin, i am excited to see what outfits everyone creates…i am just beginning to pare down my wardrobe to simple mix-and-match pieces! therefore, i have a question in regards to all your tops down the left side of your photos…would you share some of the brands? i love several of them because of their simplicity and easy remix, but am struggling to find blouses such as these. what brand/what retailer are they from? i need some shopping help! thanks!

    • Caitlin Author September 3, 2013 at 8:35 AM

      Hi Ann! How exciting! I’m happy to help out and was planning to share where I got each piece. However, since most of them are older, I wanted to have a couple of places to point you for similar items. I’ll be adding them to this post later on this week and they’ll be in each of my posts coming up. I hope that will help. Don’t hesitate to ask questions if you have more along the way!

    I was able to link my pieces via GCOGH! I’m officially in! I can’t believe I’m doing this! Definitely a challenge! Thanks again for the inspiration!

  • Iris September 2, 2013 at 4:46 PM

    Hey, I just wanted to let yall know that on my GCOGH Fall Capsule Remix board because I decided to do a true 30×30 by adding 10 pairs of shoes to my 20 clothing pieces. Let’s do this!

  • Iris September 2, 2013 at 4:49 PM

    sorry my previous comment was missing *I have 30 pieces instead of 20*

  • Iris September 2, 2013 at 11:25 PM

    I have a question…so am I not allowed to wear the same outfit more than once? what if I change the shoes and accessories?

    • Caitlin Author September 3, 2013 at 8:33 AM

      Woohoo!! So glad you’re joining in. In my mind, new shoes and accessories = a new outfit. Don’t be constrained by the rules or worry too much about following them. A remix challenge is all about stepping outside of the box! I just wanted to have general guidelines to make it a little easier. Let me know if you have other questions along the way. Can’t wait to see what you come up with!

  • Amy G September 3, 2013 at 2:55 PM

    Yay! Can’t wait to see what everyone does with these pieces!

  • Emily September 4, 2013 at 2:42 PM

    I love love love all of those tops!!!! :-) i may jump into the next one if you do another challenge…. :-) I will definitely be following along with this one tho!

    • Caitlin Author September 5, 2013 at 7:55 AM

      Emily, my plan right now is to do one for each season, so there will be plenty of opportunities to join! :)

  • Iris September 12, 2013 at 6:30 PM

    hey Caitlin, I wanted to let you know that I swapped out my school shirt for a white tee. I hope that’s not against “the rules.” and even if it is, oh well. I thought about the challenge a little more and if it’s really about ONLY wearing the 20 pieces then people who have to wear a uniform (like a real uniform) to work, then they wouldn’t really be able to participate in the challenge. so since my school tee is kind of my “school uniform” on Fridays, I swapped it out of my remix choices. also, I obviously am not going to work out in my 20 pieces either. so I’m still wearing work out clothes when I work out. also, on Tuesday I had to go to jury duty, and I didn’t feel like my 20 pieces were appropriate enough (although I could’ve made it work) for that occasion. I ended up wearing a suit that day instead. so anyway, sorry for this long comment. I’m still enjoying remixing for work and weekend though! just being practical.

    • Caitlin Author September 16, 2013 at 11:21 PM

      Iris- that’s totally fine! The rules are really just guidelines to keep the spirit of making what we’ve got work. Can’t wait to see what else you come up with! Have a great week, friend!

    Where did you find that leather jacket?!?!? LOVE

    • Caitlin Author October 20, 2015 at 3:10 PM

      Thanks Maggie! It’s from Forever 21.

  • Ashley October 23, 2015 at 1:44 AM

    Hi! I was wondering where the black and white tank top are from? They look like amazing staples, and the black and white striped shirt? Thanks!!!

    • Caitlin Author October 23, 2015 at 9:31 AM

      Hi Ashley! They’re from Old Navy…I put a similar version in the “Shop Similar Pieces” boutique below + I saw some similar tanks on J. Crew Factory’s site not too long ago. Happy hunting! :)
