Winter Remix: Week 1

Hi lovelies! How’s your week been? Mine has been a comedy of errors. Nothing major has happened, but nothing small has gone the way I planned, and TGIF is the current motto 0f the Skidmore household.

So today, my friends, I have bodyless outfit photos for you. Next Friday, my plan is to show you how I styled these in real life {Update: click here to see how I styled the pieces below.} along with next week’s. Fingers crossed my camera stops acting up and iPhoto will actually download photos. {TGIF. TGIF. TGIF!}

Greater Than Rubies Winter Remix Week 1

In summation, I wear my dark wash skinnies too many days in a row, can’t get enough of my riding boots and will blame the polar vortex for ignoring my shift dress and pencil skirt this week.

How’s your remix going? Loving your pieces and feeling inspired? Discouraged and not sure how you’re going to make it? Somewhere in between?

Here are a few things I do to keep my pieces fresh when they start to feel stale:

  • Turn all the hangers backward and flip them when I choose a piece. That helps me wear them equally-ish.
  • Browse Pinterest. I normally head to my remix rewear restyle board, capsule wardrobe board, and the appropriate season board {winter, fall & spring, or summer}- I think it’s so cool some of you are from around the world and are still participating!
  • Mix in a different scarf, pair of shoes, or an accessory or two I haven’t worn in a while.

I can’t wait to see what you’ve come up with! Link up below, and have a great weekend!

    I started a new (secret/hidden) pintrest board right before we started this remix. It helped get my creative juices flowing, so to speak, and I’m sure it will be helpful later in the month when I need fresh ideas! I’ve also pulled out an accessory that hadn’t been used in a while to help spice things up the other day, like you said. So far, though, I haven’t needed to lean on those things much yet! So far, so good over here.
    Hope your next week goes smoother for you!

    I can’t wait to see these on you!

    Amy G. – Your outfits are great! #4 is my favorite – plaid & purple!

    I wonder why my thumbnail on the link is so fuzzy? My pictures aren’t great, but they’re not that bad! ;)

    Thanks, Selah! I’m pretty happy with how that one turned out too :)
