I’m back from vacation. If you couldn’t tell from the posts last week, I was in Charleston, SC. The past 9 days were spent putting my feet in the surf, reading really good books (go buy Gone Girl this second), dancing with a naked baby (my boyfriends’ nephew) and having long conversations while eating amazing food. It’s always a little hard to come back to reality after vacation, but I found myself homesick for my little apartment.
Anywho, let’s get on to what I wore. Although I am a hot mess when it comes to packing (at least 4-5 items were not even worn), I did get a lot of use out of these white jeans. These are the two looks I came up with. One involving stripes (of course) and one white on white with a floral print scarf. I felt dressy yet laid-back in both outfits.
Details (Outfit #1): H&M top / J.Crew necklace / Paris Blues via Marshalls / Ray Ban wayfarers (purchased with Amazon gift card) / Vintage Charleston bracelet (gift) / Libby Edelman sandals via TJ Maxx / Mom’s earrings

This is the remix! Ok so here I took some elements I liked from this work outfit, the ruffle shirt and statement necklace, and turned it into a more casual look with flat sandals and a crisp jean skirt. I was going to wear shorts but I thought I’d mix it up with a denim skirt. I threw on the cardigan because the temps have been a little more brisk lately.
So, I just featured an outfit post with this army green shirt because I am using it for an outfit remix contest on Chictopia. The winner will have their look remixed in Teen Vogue. Based on how much I loved the first outfit I put together with this shirt, I figured it would be a good piece to play around with. And I figured Teen Vogue’s readers may want a fresh way to wear the Military trend that is so popular now. I really liked the way this outfit turned out. I kind of just threw it together and hoped for the best. The proportions and colors came together quite nice. The top is actually a dress, which I was proud of myself for trying.
