So, I mentioned a few weeks ago a new feature over here called "Remix Item of the Month" where I chose one hard-to-style item from my wardrobe a month and during that time I have to create three different remixes involving the item.
This month I chose this adorable- but tricky to style- thrifted polka dot skirt which I snagged from Savers in Duluth back in April. I'd never worn it so I decided it would be a great piece to challenge my remixing skills!!
The first time I wore it I paired it with my I Love Minnesota tshirt and red ballet flats. There's something about navy and white which makes me impulsively want to pair it with red. This was a really chilled-out outfit and was perfect for a day of hanging out with my day on a Sunday.
The second time I again, paired it with red. This look was a little more fun and a little more sophisticated. I love how when you look at the two pictures side-by-side, although they include the same skirt and same colour-scheme, they look completely different.
Finally, just this week I styled it with my rust blouse and brown flats. I wasn't sure about this outfit at first but it's really grown on me. I like the pairing of two different neutrals- I've always had a thing for navy and brown.
I think the challenge of this skirt was its length and its shape, and the polka dot print. I didn't want to over-power the print with more prints, and I also found I don't really own a lot of navy as a neutral, although I really like it. I would have liked to have tried this skirt with coral and with mustard yellow- maybe it's something I'll try in the winter time. I love how different all three of these outfits look when put together. I definitely think that's a remixing achievement.
I haven't chosen an outfit yet for my October remix, but watch this space!!
Which outfit is your favourite?
