Remix Rewear Restyle Link Up: Scarves

Remix Rewear Restyle Link Up: Scarves

Happy Monday, remixinistas!

If you’re on my mailing list, your inbox and I got very well acquainted today. Sorry for the overload! I’m getting a new site design up and launched, which is exciting, but not without it’s challenges :) Everything should be updated soon, but I apologize for any inconvenience or glitches in the meantime.

If you’re new, 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!

Scarves are my cold weather BFF. I am always freezing, and this layer is a great way to add interest and warmth to an outfit. Here are four outfit combinations I have on repeat:

Swap out the cardigan for a favorite sweater and you’ve got another great look.

Paired with stripes and leather. The bulky knit of the scarf softens the outfit.

Use the scarf pattern to pull together the rest of the outfit.
Stay in the same color family like I did, or use one of my favorite illustrations from What Not to Wear: think of a crayon box. If the colors are in the same area {like orange and yellow}, they go together.

Tuck your scarf into a vest or closed jacket to add warmth and another layer of style.

For the last two looks, I used regular scarves and the trick below to turn them into infinity scarves for the day:

    So I love me a good scarf. I’m kinda like a scarf junkie, iykwim. Sadly, the one outfit this week that included a scarf is my PJ Day ensemble, so that’s your first introduction to me. Bleh. Selah @ A bibliophile’sStyle turned me on to your blog and I do so love linkups, so I hope my paltry offering today is adequate. I promise to do better next time. ;p

    • Caitlin Author February 5, 2014 at 7:44 AM

      Maricel, I’m so glad you joined us! (Isn’t Selah the best?) You are gorgeous, and I’m so looking forward to seeing what else you come up with! Hope you are having a great week!

      • Selah February 5, 2014 at 9:20 PM

        Aww, thank you Caitlin! I love seeing you and Maricel interacting – two of my favorite blogging friends. :)
        I had an idea for Remix Rewear Restyle. Maricel and I are researching looks for this link up:
        It includes fashion inspired by different decades, and I shared your Timeless Capsule Wardrobe posts with Maricel, because they’re such great inspiration. Maybe we could do decade inspired outfits for RRR?

        • Maricel @ My Closet Catalogue February 6, 2014 at 5:41 PM

          OOOH, let’s! Can we? Puh-leeze?!

        • Caitlin Author February 7, 2014 at 6:34 PM

          How fun! That’s a great idea, Selah. I’ll add it to my notes for March’s looks :)

  • Sarah @ Tucker Up February 3, 2014 at 8:53 PM

    I LOVE that plaid scarf! Love love love it!

  • Amy G February 4, 2014 at 6:47 AM

    Love the scarf looks, of course. I thought of your faux infinity scarf wrapping skills this weekend and tried something similar with my plaid scarf over my purple dress. I wish I would have gotten a picture to use for this remix, but I knew I was going to have another scarf to style on Monday.

    Winter Wear Remix….hmm. I might have to show you guys my snowpants, haha! Maybe I’ll do two looks for that one. The other remixes should be fun too! And so excited for Friday!

    • Caitlin Author February 5, 2014 at 7:46 AM

      I bet the plaid with your purple dress was a great combo! Lol- that sounds great! Show us how you look chic with snow pants, because sometimes they’re needed!

  • Carly February 5, 2014 at 9:50 AM

    You know I love scarves! That plaid scarf of yours is so pretty! I have some fabric to make a magenta plaid one. I thought it would be wearable in the spring, too. I need to make it. I posted my 20×30 remix recap (which included a scarf look). I didn’t get photos of most of my looks, but it was a good experience anyway!

    • Caitlin Author February 7, 2014 at 6:28 PM

      How fun- I hope you do! I’m so glad you participated and it was a good experience :) Hope you have a great weekend!

  • Alyssa Barnett February 5, 2014 at 9:45 PM

    Also, Caitlin, is it okay if I make a button out of your Remix/Rewear/Restyle graphic above? I’d love to advertise you on my blog and link directly to you with that “button”.

    • Caitlin Author February 7, 2014 at 6:37 PM

      Sure, Maricel! I’ve been thinking about making a real button, so I could also do that if it’s easier. Thanks for sharing RRR! I love having new ladies join. Seeing everyone’s looks is always so inspiring!

      • Maricel @ My Closet Catalogue February 7, 2014 at 10:43 PM

        Oh, sure! I can wait for the official button. I’ll just keep stalking you. ;p

        Also, if you’re feeling spunky, Selah and I are co-hosting our own little monthly linkup, to launch on February 20th. Come check it out:

        We’d love to have you!

        • Caitlin Author February 12, 2014 at 8:20 AM

          Thanks for the invite, Maricel. I will check it out! Hope you’re having a great week.

  • Steph July 30, 2014 at 7:17 AM

    Hello. I wasn’t sure how to subscribe. So I just checked the box “notify me of new post by email.” Hope I did it right!

    • Caitlin Author July 31, 2014 at 8:32 AM

      Hi Steph! If you didn’t get an e-mail yesterday to confirm, it didn’t work. I just added a subscribe box to the side of the page so that it would be easier to find. Hope that helps! Don’t hesitate to let me know if you have any questions.
