{Remix Rewear Restyle} Shorts

remix rewear restyle shorts 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: shorts.

I’m not a big fan of shorts because my legs are so long it’s hard to find shorts I’m comfortable wearing out in public.

My current go-to shorts ensemble is a pop of color with laid back stripes. Switching up my jewelry and shoes make these basics feel fresh over and over again. Plus, they’re just as comfortable as pj’s. How can you not have a great day if you feel like you’re wearing pj’s but look pulled together?


Now it’s your turn! How to share your look:

Via Instagram:

  • Post a photo of your remix and use the hashtag #remixrewearrestyle.

On the blog:

  • Shoot me an e-mail at skidmore.caitlin@gmail.com with your look/collage. Please leave your name as you want it posted and a blog link if you have one. I’ll add them to the post later on today.

Next Monday’s theme (June 24): nautical.

Please leave your vote for the following week below!

  • color blocking
  • pastels
  • basic tee

    The picture I emailed yesterday is brights shorts & stripes – great minds think alike, huh? :)
    Old Navy makes some 7″ shorts that might work well for you:

    Nautical should be fun! I love anything nautical. I vote for pastels for the following week.

      They sure do! Thanks for the link- Old Navy is where I got this pair of shorts before last year. I haven’t looked since, so I’ll have to check them out.

    I love this outfit, Caitlin!

      Thanks, Audrey!

    I wore stripes and bright shorts yesterday too! I was going to take a picture for the remix, but that didn’t happen. I was also thinking about putting the outfit back on for a quick picture after work today, but that didn’t happen either because my body rebelled against me and I felt sick a good share of the day. :( I guess I will have to try and participate next week! Either pastels or color blocking would be fun for the following week.

      Sometimes it’s just impossible to snap a picture. I hope you’re feeling better! And that it works with your schedule to join in next week; we’d love to see your look!

    I wore stripes and colored shorts yesterday. Something about the combination just screams summer and fun to me. I really love your yellow shorts. It’s a super cute outfit!

    • Caitlin Author June 23, 2013 at 4:11 PM

      Thank you, Nilda! I totally agree. I just feel like summer in this outfit. :)
