Aaaand, here's the final outfit in this little challenge! I've never really done a mega-remixing challenge like this before and it was pretty fun, and definitely challenging! Usually when I remix pieces it's over many months and my whole closet to chose from. When Kendi started the 30 for 30 challenge, I liked the idea of challenging yourself to remix what you already have, but I think I prefer to have my whole closet to work with. Though, I'm sure 30 pieces is probably way easier to be creative with than just five pieces! It's a fun project to push yourself to be more creative and resourceful with styling. I'm kinda glad this mini challenge is over though, there are so many other outfits I have in my brain that I've been wanting to wear... maybe doing this challenge spurred on my creativity! Have you guys ever done a styling challenge? Did it change how you looked at your closet?

Whenever I shop, I try to find things that lend themselves well to remixing. This top, for instance, is great for remixing. I find that button down tops are often pretty great for remixing. This one had the added bonus of having sleeves that can roll down or up and be secured with a little button, plus the tie, which could be worn full length or tied up a bit higher at the natural waist, like in this outfit. And collared shirts are fun to wear underneath dresses with the collar popping out.
Well, stay tuned! The $100 gift card giveaway is later today!
