{Remix Rewear Restyle} Nautical

remix rewear restyle nautical edition

Happy Monday, friends! Welcome to Remix Rewear Restyle, a new weekly Instagram/blog remix to showcase how you style a specific item. My hope is to challenge you {as well as myself!} to remix items already in our closets and gain inspiration from others.

Up this week: nautical.

Nautical was a challenge for me. When I hear the word, visions of red, white, blue, and stripes start swirling in my head. Instead of going with a casual look {which in my mind, equals more nautical-ish}, I opted for the color theme this week.

…Nautical Remixes…

{Selah’s Look}

In her own words, ‘Beachy natural.’

The anchor and sand dollar-esque necklace pairing is my favorite part!

{Aubree’s Looks}

{Look 1} Jean jacket + colored jeans and loafers. What a great, unexpected mix of colors!

{Amy’s Look}

Neutrals & a nautical necklace. You know I love a good ruffled top! They’re so versatile.

Thanks for sharing your looks, ladies! I love that this remix stretches us to work with what we’ve already got {In the past, I totally would’ve run out to buy something “more nautical,” instead of pushing myself to utilize what I have} and to see everyone’s interpretations!

I can’t wait to see your takes on pastels next week! PS I’m going to switch and start adding in everyone’s photos to the original post; I’ll just post on Monday evening instead of morning. Have a great week, dears!

    I like the turquoise necklace with the red top. It’s a nice riff on the nautical color palette.

    Pattern mixing is my favorite! I love, love, love it!

      Thank you, Selah!

  • Aubree June 24, 2013 at 12:58 PM

    I emailed you my picture last night. :)

    • Caitlin Author June 25, 2013 at 6:44 AM

      I loved both of your pictures! Great looks, Aubree. Thanks for sharing them with us!

    I vote for color blocking! Pattern mixing is definitely not my favorite.

  • Iris June 24, 2013 at 5:14 PM

    I’m sorry that I haven’t been participating. It’s just that on the weekends I’ve been content with my comfy momma style…I don’t have time to put on a theme outfit and snap a picture. Although I guess I could just use your theme as a guide and challenge for the weekend. I wanted to say that I don’t really pattern mix or color block so my choice would be white even though I haven’t been participating! Haha!

    • Caitlin Author June 25, 2013 at 6:48 AM

      Iris! Don’t feel bad for not participating! Ha. I think nautical-inspired nods toward colors of the beach/ocean, stripes, etc. My perfectionistic brain just struggled with this one because it didn’t “fit” my preconceived ideas. Isn’t that what a remix is about, though? Pushing yourself to make what you’ve got work!

  • Iris June 24, 2013 at 5:18 PM

    I’ll try to post something pastel. In fact I’m wearing pastel now! Btw…what would you consider a nautical style outfit? I mean is it really putting together a combo of red white blue sailing outfit?

  • Selah June 25, 2013 at 7:07 AM

    Oh, I love Aubree’s first look! I have a pair of navy shorts with anchors on them that I wanted to use for this theme, but, alas, they are a bit small. :( I’ll have to remember to pair them with my mint top, once I can wear them again.

    I love how you did nautical. Very subtle and beautiful. I’m liking the other looks as well! This is such a fun challenge. Is it just a Monday challenge or is it a week long challenge?

    • Caitlin Author July 1, 2013 at 5:43 PM

      Thank you, Ashley! I post the looks on Mondays, and announce the next week’s remix challenge. That way, you can snap the picture any time during the week that works for you. Upload it to Instagram with the hashtag remixrewearrestyle or e-mail it to me (skidmore.caitlin@gmail.com). Let me know if you have any questions. I hope you’ll join in the fun! It’s great to see everyone’s takes on a challenge.
