AJ Wears :: Coral stripes

Hi people! Even with a jam-packed day, I managed to take not one...but TWO outfit photos today! I'm definitely making the most of my suitcase wardrobe this week. Today was meetings, pre-conference workshops, and tech rehearsals so I wanted to be comfortable - leggings, check! flats, double check! I added a blazer because our staff work room tends to get a bit cool, but I was able to shed the layer to take a quick nap by the pool this afternoon during my lunch break. There's something so wrong about wearing a blazer when everyone around you has a swimsuit on! I'm thinking I might wear mine under my clothes the next few days so I can dip when I get a break.

PS - My husband bought me this shirt for my birthday, how cute is he? I love it when he picks stuff out for me because I know he'll like my outfit. Also, I like wearing things he picked out and bragging on his great taste. So! Work day to dinner is often a pretty quick turn around, so I've been re-working pieces from day to night this week. Tonight I tucked this pretty blouse into a pencil skirt for a welcome reception.

I think this might have been cute too if I hiked the skirt up a bit to make it shorter and wore the blouse over it with a belt! So versatile. Hurrah. I ended up throwing on a jacket on the way out the door just in case and snapped this shot to prove it totally works with the jacket too. Love that. PS - totally fell over after taking these pictures in the sand in wedges. This nice couple offered to take my picture at one point but I didn't want to explain to them A) why I was taking these or B) what sort of art direction I'd need so I let them go on their merry way. So sweet.

Friday Favorites Remix :: The silver tweed blazer

Last week's remix choices were slim. Two colored jeans, two blazers, and some leggings. Of course, I chose the blazer because I need to wear it while it's still under 90 around here. I tried it with shorts - it didn't work. I don't know why. So I grabbed my trusty wide leg navy pants and went on with my day.

I totally got called out on getting dressed just to leave the house for a few minutes today. I was popping into the audio studio where I freelance to cut a quick audition and they said they imagined me wearing sweatpants all day. It's true - if I don't have to leave the house, I'm in sweats. But if I'm GOING to leave, I'm going to do it right. Even if I only drop by Target and go to Sonic Happy Hour. Plus, I totally needed a remix. Look! I'm twirling! Whee!

Here's how I wore this blazer last week! I don't know if it's going to look good with a skirt, but I'm digging the monochrome on top.


How did YOU re-wear this week? Link up below! Yay!!


Friday Favorites Remix :: A Striped Skirt

I actually had planned to wear this outfit weeks ago, and for some reason or another, it never happened. I ended up wearing the skirt last week with a completely different everything. So when a random cold front blew through last night and made it a bit chilly, I thought it would be perfect to pull out for Friday remix!

This sweater is from Wet Seal about a zillion years ago, but I can't seem to get rid of it. I love the little lady like details of the bow and beads. It makes a nice layering piece.

 And in case you were wondering what the Friday Favorites Remix IS, I choose a piece of my wardrobe from last week and wear it again in a new way. I don't know what the difference between "wearing again" and "remix" is, the only idea I came up with is that when you wear something again, you wear it in the same fashion as the first time....and when you "remix" you're finding a new way to wear the same piece. So here's how I wore it last week -

And now, I want to see how you're remixing your favorite pieces from week to week! Y'all link up below and show off your amazing re-wearing skills. Just pick something you've worn recently and give it new life. PS - for now, I'm going to keep the same linky thing until I find something I like better, so feel free to submit new links every week and show everyone some love.
