On Repeat + Remixing Vault Update

I know sometimes you see me remixing the same pieces over and over again. Part of me is ok with that, because GTR is about coming up with real life, every day outfits and making the pieces you have work. But part of me isn’t, because I want to always be pushing myself to come up with unique outfits and spread the wearing around instead of sticking to my current favorites always and forever.

Do you ever do that? Get in a rut of wearing the same items as often as they’ve been put away from being washed?

Lately, my go-to’s hot from the dryer are this top, these skinny jeans, and this necklace. (No, I don’t wash the necklace, that would be weird. Although maybe not, because it has been blazing hot around here and it probably has sweat on it. Eww.) Now that we’re both thoroughly disgusted and you’re questioning my personal hygiene habits, let’s cut to the chase:

The remixing vault has been updated, and there’s lots of great new stuff in there for ya! (And for me, too, so I’ll start branching out to the rest of my closet again.)

I could whine and say it’s been so hot I just don’t want much fabric touching me, but it’s really just me being lazy. My year of no shopping was way more creative. So here’s my promise to you: I will start remixing better and utilizing my closet to its full potential. Pinky promise. Now go get your remixing on, and have a happy Friday!

PS Don’t forget to link up your dress(es) for the Lovely Lookbook, and cast your vote for October’s theme!

    Sometimes it is difficult to find the balance between getting the most out of your pieces and not getting in a rut with them. Sometimes I think I’ve been doing good with the balance, and then I get to the end of a season and I realize how little some pieces have been used that will be hard to use in the next season. I’m not sure what the secret is to that balance.
    P.S. I have no idea how you wear skinnies so much when it’s so hot there. I’m pretty sure I’d be overworking my shorts and sleeveless dresses if I were some place hot. The skinnies look great with sleeveless tops though!

      I think it’s ok to not use pieces a lot even if they won’t fit well into the next season. I find that pieces I didn’t wear last year in this season get more use because I “rediscover” them. Thanks! It’s a tough balance because I get cold easily, so when I’m headed anywhere with crazy A/C, I don’t mind wearing pants. I’ve been working my dresses a lot this week though- it’s super hot! Hope you’re having a great week :)

        That’s a good way to look at it! I know I’ve had moments like that where I’ve rediscovered something I haven’t worn in a while. It’s so fun! Hope you have a great weekend!

    I definitely find myself wearing some items that I love over and over again! Thank goodness for a good remix! I love this outfit!
