are you ready to reeeeeeeeeeeemix? (it helps if you pretend that’s said in a ridiculous announcer voice like it’s the beginning of some kind of match)
i like to use remixes to test run an item i’ve had trouble integrating into my wardrobe. like this skirt, which i owned for five years and rarely/never wore (and only managed to wear once in that remix). post-remix, i handed it over to my cousin, who hopefully gets more use out of it. in this case, it’s this polka dot shirt. in theory, i love it: polka dot blouse with a tie-front. cute, work-appropriate, but a little unexpected and a little vintage-y. i altered the neckline a little to make that more my style, too. but the buttons are a little far apart, so it gaps even though it’s a little roomy on me, and the fabric is very very manmade. nylon? polyester? who knows? so this remix is it’s chance: prove it or lose it!
after jake gets all of the necessary pictures for me, he likes to grab random snapshots from odd angles, and i usually take that as an invitation to be silly. (classic example) when i look at this picture, i suddenly get ‘all i do is win‘ stuck in my head. so there’s that.
this outfit was brought to you (or me, rather) by TARGET! t-shirt, maxi and wedges are all from target, though the maxi was a thrifted dress turned skirt. the belt is from j crew, though. i don’t always feel like having a gigantic brass clip in the front, sometimes a simpler black stripe is what i want for an outfit, so i turn it around. plus it adds a little visual interest to the back. bonus!

we were wandering around the gold coast, and found this sweet park, where we decided to grab some outfit pictures. as we wandered forth from there, we realized that the building right behind me (sorry, you can’t see it really in the pics) was the newberry library! it’s one of those spots that even though we live (relatively) nearby, we’ve never really managed to see. in fact, i never even really knew about it until i read the time travellers wife. it was closed, unfortunately. but now that we know where it is, some time we’ll actually get down there while it’s open!

did you guys have a good long weekend? i’ve been having a harder time getting pictures of my outfits during the work week for some reason, so i need to re-don outfit 25 and take some pictures! hopefully for tomorrow!
we rewatched demolition man recently, and their snazzy futuristic high five amused me. anyone wanna make this a thing?
pork chops in wine and garlic sauce, from pioneer woman. you saw a pic of my version in my 10 good things right now post, which wasn’t as photogenic, but was totally delicious!
cole haan shoes: out of my price range, but i like window shopping at cole haan, and right now, they are doing everything just right as far as i’m concerned. love love love the contrasting sole! i was at target the other day, and i noticed they had some really cute knock offs that are much more in my price range (but i probably don’t need them).
sullivan street cardigan swans island. isn’t it gorgeous? i love this style of sweater, oversized with the foldback ribbing. bet it’s a yarn-eater, though!
chambray polka dot popover from anthropologie. i saw this while i was browsing at anthropologie the other day. i actually think the shirt is way better looking in person than in this picture. perfectly soft popover with subtle polka dots? lovely. i love polka dots, i’m not sure how it’s happened that they’ve popped back into fashion without me picking any up!
this weekend is all about 30 for 30 prep for me… i’m making my choices, and scouting for inspiration. any pieces you’d like to see in this remix?
