Happy Monday, y’all!
How was your weekend? The weather here was nothing short of glorious, so we tried to take advantage of it with long-overdue yard work (we were those neighbors with the jungle of weeds in our yard…oops), the most gorgeous outdoor wedding (Seriously, breathtaking. I’ve got a few latergrams to post this week, and if you’re planning your wedding, the bride had some amazing ideas. You might want to follow along for some inspiration), and a cookout with family to top it all off.
In honor of this week’s remix, I also spent some time re-dying my favorite dark wash skinnies to keep them looking chic rather than shabby.
Today, we’re sharing items we’ve repaired or updated to extend their life. I’m excited to hear your ideas and learn a few tricks myself! Later this week, as promised, I’ll share a tutorial on exactly how I dye my pieces, as well as a few tips and suggestions (ahem…what not to do) I’ve learned along the way.
This particular remix was inspired by Redress. They host monthly challenges 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. Beyond that, it’s a great place to look for outfit inspiration!
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!
I love using a bold necklace to frame the face.
It’s also a great way to provide more coverage if you feel a little bare with a neckline.
Alright, ladies, let’s see your repairs and hear your tips and tricks
for how to breathe new life into your pieces! Link up below.
