Halfway point plus remix thoughts:
As I am writing this, I am wearing outfit #20 using my remix pieces, so I am 2/3 of the way there. I can tell I will need to be a bit more creative for the last few looks, but overall I've been really pleased with my pieces. A couple observations/comments about the challenge so far -
  • It's not been super hot here, so I've had opportunities to wear a lot of my scarves as well as my cardigan. This next week looks cooler, too.
  • I like mixing/matching blue, gray, tan, and black. These are my favorite neutrals!
  • It's been a lot easier to get dressed with fewer pieces. The night before, I usually take a look at the weather, think about my day (whether I work, have church, meetings, day off, etc), and then refer to my list of ideas and see what outfits are left. Overall, I haven't had a major "getting dressed crisis" in awhile.
  • I haven't felt inclined to wander around and shop quite as much. I got the necklace set above, and I have been looking for pants and riding boots for fall. Hoping to get a good sale price on boots before the fall collections come out! Any suggestions about where to shop?
  • I've been wearing shorts and feeling pretty comfortable in them. It's been quite awhile since I've worn shorts consistently.
  • I don't have a lot of versatile prints in my wardrobe.
  • I've been pretty much wearing the same two pairs of sandals all summer.

Ooh you are doing such a great job! I'm glad to see that this challenge has curbed your shopping habits a bit--that's something I am making progress on as well. I love that you are reflecting on this process throughout! While I love all of your outfits, #11 is among my favorite. The colors are just so refreshing and calm, perfect for summer. Thanks for linking up!

Wow! Still going strong! My favorite is Day 11. Love the pastel cardigan with the neutrals and that necklace!

Nice outfits, Carly. I especially like the mint sweater with the grey top and white tanks - great combination. The maxi and vest are also great together and a really good look on you.

The mint + grey is my favorite combo. Such a pretty color pairing and the white makes it feel really fresh. Love reading your thoughts behind the challenge, too! So glad you're remixing with us :) Have a great week, Carrie!

I love the look of a chambray shirt with black bottoms, so I think that outfit is my favorite! I do really like the greenish-mint and gray outfit as well :)
