Take One, Wrap it Up

Let's talk about the Take One, Pass it on remix! This was such a fun challenge. S/O to Sarah for not only coming up with such a great idea, but for hosting all of us!

So I managed 24 outfits in 28 days, and remixed everything from sweaters to scarves to shoes. I remixed during a five day trip for work, which gave me a chance to add in a little business casual to the mix. I even bought items with the sole purpose of remixing them - while it sounds silly, I love doing wardrobe remixes because it helps me when I'm shopping to really look at pieces and find things that I not only love, but can wear a few different ways.

Looking back, I think this type of wardrobe remix is much more accessible for the every day woman who doesn't want to do too much prep. It's great for travel, because you can build a suitcase where pieces are worn several different ways. And it's fantastic for those days you're feeling uninspired about your wardrobe. Just pick a piece you love and remix it into a new outfit you might not have thought about before.

This also gave me the chance to dig through my closet a little and find pieces I haven't worn in a while and give them a new spin. If you're looking for a way to mix up your wardrobe and do something fun - doooooo it.

So that's it! Watch Sarah's blog for a round up of everyone who participated, because there were a ton of girls doing some really interesting things with their wardrobe. I'm looking forward to getting dressed without having to think as much again, but I have to admit being able to wear some pieces that I *love* a few times in a row without judgement was really great. What I'm saying is, don't be afraid to wear the same shirt a few times in a row. I'm 95% sure no one will notice unless you start smelling weird. And that's what Febreze is for.

JustFab Denim Party PLUS Giveaway!

  I'm really excited to be teaming up with JustFab today to show off their new spring denim. I've always been a huge fan (seen here, here, here, and here...along with a dozen others). Their new spring denim might be the BEST YET - I'm not exaggerating. I couldn't wait to get my hands on the new ombre denim and try my hand at styling it a few ways for you guys. Plus, they gave me a few credits to hand out! I tried to put together a dressy outfit, casual every day outfit, and something to look forward to once spring finally comes in.

Not every night out has to be over-the-top fancy - I love using a fun jacket and a little sparkle to dress up jeans for dinner and drinks.

I always like to throw a super casual look into a three ways post, because I know most people dress for comfort and I like showing how versatile a piece can be. This happens to be one of my favorite sweaters - I have no idea why I bought it but I used to leave it in my desk at work because it was so warm and cozy. The jeans are so stretchy I think they'd be perfect for studying or lounging in a cozy wrap sweater and t-shirt.

It's so close to warmer weather, I had to try and style a spring-ish type outfit so you had some ideas moving forward. I think the ombre jeans will look SO FUN with some florals and chambray - and as it turns out, both! This spring I'll probably style these with a white tee, slouchy pink tank, or my striped blazer. Wear these jeans just like you would any colored denim, but keep it a little simple so you're not competing with the ombre.

JustFab's spring denim line so far includes the ombre in two colors, a fantastic floral, two colors of tuxedo jeans, and those adorable contrasting cuff jeans. I want them all! They also plan on releasing even more denim all spring! As far as fit, I ordered the same size as I normally do in JF denim (27) and they're pretty close to how I like my jeans to fit. The fabric is a little thinner than the signature skinny solid colors, and has more stretch (for those of you who have ordered before).

Okay! In love? Totally convinced? Here's the fun part!
