So this was supposed to be another 8 outfits from 8 pieces remixology, but when I went back and looked at the photos, I could only find 6 pieces! For some reason I must've been including the shoes, which I would usually count as accessories, but either way I made 8 outfits out of 6 pieces instead of 8. Unintentional increased degree of difficulty? Anyway, for this challenge I styled four items from ModCloth and then pulled four (two?) pieces from my existing closet.
For these first outfits I used the black hi-low skirt as the base. I'm normally not a huge fan of hi-low skirts (mullet skirts?) but this one is so casual and comfy and I like the way the fabric hangs. Because it's black it's super easy to pair with a bunch of different tops. And depending on what you pair it with, you can either dress it up or go for a more casual, earthy look, like the outfit with the rust top (which is actually a dress).
I styled the skirt a fourth way here, wearing it as a strapless dress. It actually works pretty perfectly as a dress if you just belt it! You could even remix the dress by adding a cardigan or other top and change the look up a bit. I feel like that black skirt has so much remixing potential!
It felt pretty natural to pair the rust dress with the lace top. The dress on its own has such a natural, organic feel to it that pairing it with lace just seemed right.
I think these three outfits are my favorite from this Remixology challenge. I've seen those mint jeans at ModCloth for over a year, but never really felt like I could pull them off. I was still skeptical when I ordered them, but when they arrived, I fell in love and they fit great (though they are suuuper long on me, hence the bunching at the ankle. I might alter them to be shorter). The color is just the best shade of mint. After seeing this outfit I really wanted to get my hands on some leather-esque leggings, and the ones featured here are great. I had a pair quite a few years ago but I must've gotten rid of them when my style shifted towards a more girly look. Now that I'm swinging back towards, well, whatever it's swinging towards, these leggings are definitely something I'm loving to rock. I wore them out on the town Friday night with one of Dan's plaid flannel shirts and my leather moto jacket and felt pretty badass.
