Fall Capsule Wardrobe Remix: Week 3

How is it already week 3 of the Fall Capsule Wardrobe Remix?!

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.

So far, it’s been the hottest month of the year in Texas. Not ideal for a fall remix, but it’s been a great push to utilize what I’ve got and realize I could come up with well over 30 outfits from my 20 pieces.

And miracle of all miracles, today is rainy and in the SEVENTIES, so you better believe I’ve broken out my boots and blazer! Overkill? Yes. Do I care? Not a bit. It’s fall, y’all!

Here are my looks from week 3:

Some of my favorite details are hard to see, so here are a couple of close ups.

Pairing masculine and feminine pieces is a great way to remix what you have. A super sparkly necklace pops against any button up.

Pattern mixing is another great way to restyle an outfit. Because animal print is made up of neutral colors, it reads as one. Pair this classic print with polka dots, stripes, or plaid for a fun pattern mix.

    Gahhhhh I love those burgundy suede wedges. I’m restraining myself from getting a pair in every color.

      I might be slightly obsessed. They’re the perfect fall shoe and fallify everything I wear. My favorite look of yours this week is the chambray layered over your polka dot tee with the green pants- great combo! Hope you’re having a great week and I can’t wait to see what you come up with this Friday!

    Felicia- that striped blazer is so versatile! I haven’t been brave enough to try wearing a graphic tee with any of mine yet, but it’s a great look on you! So glad you’re remixing along.

    Loving every outfit, especially days 16 and 17. Such a great idea!

    I do like the mix of masculine and feminine type pieces you used! The contrast adds a nice variety to these outfits!

  • Amanda Cobb September 25, 2013 at 5:02 PM

    Cute looks! I need to do something like this. We’ve still got summer weather here, too, but I’m headed to NY in 2 weeks- no idea what to pack!

    Great outfit recap! I am loving that gingham top.
