{Remix Rewear Restyle} Summer Layers

#remixrewearrestyle summer layers


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

This week’s remix features summer layers. Layers are a quick way to spice up an outfit, and are handy if you live anywhere it feels like a blazing furnace outside and a literal freezer inside every freaking building. coughtexascough

Enough chatting. Here are this week’s summer layer remixes!

{My Look}

my go-to {or never-go-without} summer layering piece is a cardigan. it’s always freezing inside, and apparently wearing a snuggie at work is inappropriate.

{Emily’s Looks}

blazers are a great change-up from the cardigan for a layering piece!

    Wow! So many participants this week! I’m so happy you’re growing the posts so quickly.

      Hmm, that was weird. I typed a much longer comment, but only part of it posted.

      Everyone’s looks are great, but I especially love Autumn & her niece – I wore that same combo recently and loved it!

      I’ve got a great polka dot tank picked out for next week!

        Can’t wait to see it!

    Great looks here! I also really like Iris’ color combo. I’m on the hunt for some olive pants for this coming fall.
    I’m excited about the remix schedule! Now I have to decide whether to remix my polka dot top or polka dot skirt! Tough choice.

      Thanks Amy! I found the olive pants at Goodwill! They are Mossimo by Target and they work so well as a neutral! Great remixing piece!

    • Caitlin Author August 10, 2013 at 4:44 PM

      Can’t wait to see which one you pick!

  • Iris August 9, 2013 at 10:11 PM

    You’re so funny…”Enough chatting.” I don’t even know what your voice sounds like but I can hear you saying that! Hahaha

    • Caitlin Author August 10, 2013 at 4:46 PM

      Lol! I love how you can live across the country and become friends through blogs. Hopefully we’ll get to meet one day and then you can really picture it :) I’m proud of you for achieving the same idea as a blazer with a cardigan- you’re becoming such a great remixer!!

  • Iris August 9, 2013 at 10:18 PM

    One more comment – I love layering and I always see cute outfits with blazers – like Emily’s looks – but being petite makes it difficult for me to find ones that fit me well. I’ve come to realize I can still layer with the same color cardigan to achieve a similar look!
