So sorry for the late posting of RRR; my browser kept losing connection and this post. It must have had a case of the Monday blues, but thankfully everything is up and running now.
Troy and I were super blessed to get to celebrate our five year anniversary in St. Kitts last week. It was the most beautiful place I’ve ever seen, and it made me even more thankful for my pricelining-deal-finding-whiz of a husband. I’ll share some of our trip on Instagram this week if you want to see photos!
We had lots of fun firsts: snorkeling in the caribbean with starfish bigger than your head, trying sugar cane and mangoes straight from the trees, holding baby monkeys, and hiking up a volcano.
It was such an incredible trip that I’m only semi-excited to be back, so if I disappear, let’s just say you’ll know where to look! :)
Our flight home was delayed due to weather, so I had to come up with a quick DIY yesterday. It totally bombed. I took a risk with not having enough dye to turn my mustard maxi black, and it came out looking like literal poop. Sometimes, reworking a piece just doesn’t work. If that was the case for you this week, too, try not to be discouraged; there’s almost always a way to salvage it.
If all goes as planned, I’ll share two DIYs with you later this week to make up for today’s sad case. In the meantime, I’ll wear a cone of shame to pay my dues. :)
Because I don’t have an actual DIY to share yet, I updated the Remixing Vault with a few mouth-watering DIY’s this morning, and I’ll add more this week. Click here for tons of remixing and DIY inspiration.
Another great place to look for inspiration is Redress. They host monthly challenges (today’s remix is inspired by June’s!) to inspire sustainable fashion and encourage people to ‘redress’ items rather than throw them away. Their goal is to call attention to the impact our clothing choices have on the environment. Just the tiny bit I’ve peeked into the subject has made it clear that limiting purchases and disposal even slightly can have incredible effects. Check the hashtag #redress on Twitter and Instagram for oodles of inspo.
Alright ladies- enough chatting! It’s your turn. Share your DIY or the project you’re planning to tackle next by linking up below! I can’t wait to see what you’ve come up with.
June 30: Flashback :: Take a look from your childhood & give it a grown up spin.
We’ll pause our regular remixes for July’s Summer Remix Challenge.
If you’re new, we’re excited you’re here! Remix Rewear Restyle is a weekly challenge to shop your closet and show us how you style a certain piece. Don’t worry about being right or wrong. There aren’t any rules except to include a piece that fits the challenge.
So go shop that closet and link up your look below!
