This post title might be even more tenuous than yesterday's, because I'm not actually 20 floors up on a parking deck. It's Friday and I'm giving in to my penchant for my post-titles-that-aren't-related whims.

For my 20th outfit in the 30 for 30 Remix Challenge, I went for a really cozy outfit. I actually wore it twice during Thanksgiving week but failed majorly to take a photo of it, so here it is again. This outfit is so comfortable it basically feels like wearing pajamas, though I feel a little like a lumberjack in this outfit.

I'm two-thirds of the way through the Remix Challenge. It's getting pretty hard. Like I told myself that I have to mainly wear things that haven't already been worn twice, and now I have a bunch of showcase items that need to be worn that don't match each other. I tried, though. The sequin top doesn't want to be friends with the band jacket, and the leather skirt is leading a coup to take over the rest of the closet. Total chaos over here.

What do you do when your clothes just don't want to cooperate with you?

Happy Friday,


  1. Absolutely love the way the sweater vest looks with the plaid!

  2. Oh, what's life without whimsy anyways? I don't think I've seen you in pants lately but you look rad in anything my dear!

    Btw, Thank you for yesterday... really appreciate the kind words!



  3. How do you wear so many layers and manage to look completely non lumpy?! I tell you, I have not yet mastered that magical skill.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one with a chaotic group of items....

  4. I went for socially-acceptable pj's yesterday, too. LOVE cozy chic outfits and this one definitely fits the bill :D

  5. Love all the layers...that sweater look so cozy!

  6. I'm running out of combos at this point! I didn't choose wisely enough to have pieces like vests or enough sweaters so many of my looks are top+bottom+shoes=boring. I can't wait for this to be over!

  7. Well you don't LOOK like you're struggling with your outfits, you're still knocking them out of the park!

  8. Super cute! And I love these pictures!! Oh my gosh... it sounds like your wardrobe is plotting against you! I'm sure you can convince them all to play nice, you're such a master remixer! I usually go for an outfit I know works if I'm stumped! I know its not creative, but its the easy way out! :)

  9. Loved the layering. Remix challenge sounds so fun!

  10. Yay for post titles that aren't related! :)

    Also, I love the outfit. That sweater vest is one of my favorite pieces of yours.

  11. That little bag is wonderful! The perfect accent for the outfit :D


I'd love to hear your thoughts!
