I recently spent a rainy afternoon brainstorming new combinations from my closet with things I already own. It turned out to be really fun, and productive! I don't know about you guys but I often feel pressure as a blogger to have head to toe "new" outfits everyday, but it's just not my ideal closet situation. I love that remixing is more sustainable and cheaper (not to mention basically, like, the norm for 99% of people) compared to always shopping new, and I see it as an exciting puzzle figuring out ways things can potentially fit together. The catalog photo was my guide for today's outfit, and it wound up being a mix of two past favorites (here and here). Can't wait to share more results with you over the next 3 days!
