Remix // Pants

The other day my friend and I were talking about my overall meh feeling about my outfits as of late and she suggested taking a piece and styling it two different ways. It totally sparked something. I've never really thought about doing that before, but it sounded like a really fun little challenge. I decided the two different looks would be: stay home, and out and about at night. I thought since this is my first time doing this I would go with pants because they are pretty easily remixed.
pants and sweatshirt // forever 21
shoes // Lulu's
First up is the stay home outfit, probably my most common outfit hehe. When I am stuck working on the computer I like to be as comfortable as possible, which is why the majority of the time I wear pjs, but I'm trying to break that habit and wear things that I wouldn't be totally embarrassed to answer the door in the later afternoon haha! I think this outfit absolutely fits all of my prerequisites, it's full of the comfy and there will be no embarrassment when opening the door. And of course, you can never go wrong with a sweatshirt with a dinosaur playing a guitar. Granted, it's several sizes too big (which I think might make me look a little bigger) but I don't really care because, come on, it has a freaking dinosaur playing a guitar!

shirt // Target
Next up is the out and about at night outfit. I feel like this combination is perfect for meeting up with friends and grabbing drinks. And can we just talk about these shoes for a second? I am so in love with them because DANG they make my legs look good! I wish I was able stand wearing them longer than just a couple of hours. I never really ever built up a tolerance for wearing heels and I feel like I am too old to start now haha! But I'm still willing to bust out a cute pair of heels if only for a couple of hours every so often, hehe.

I had a great time styling these pants two ways that I think this might be a reoccurring series here on the blog. especially while I am in Phoenix with a limited wardrobe.  I'm already starting to think about which piece I am going to style two ways next. What are some of your favorite ways to restyle/remix pieces from your wardrobe? 

Hope everyone is having a great day!

  1. Look two - wowza! - and those shoes?! And, of course, I am loving your cute new fringe, lady! I have been feeling bored with my closet as well - always fun to mix up what you have! :)

  2. Can I just say, wow! Damn you look amazing in that second set of photos. I mean, you look gorgeous in the first set too, obviously, but that second set looks incredible. As another non-heels wearer it is amazing what a difference they can make to a look. This is such a great idea for a post, looking forward to seeing more like this while you are away from home xo

  3. Love this so much! The bottom outfit is awesome :) I remix skater dresses - leggings, flats and a jumper over the top when I'm home, tights, low heels and a cardigan for work :)

  9. A) Those pants are rad. They look especially amazing with those heels. Like, holy wow!
    B) That sweater is hilarious and perfect. Ian would adore it!
    C) You are a woman made for bangs!
    D) I'm SO bored with my wardrobe. I think what I need is for someone to come over and pick outfits out in the morning. Surely they would pick a combo that I would never think of, reigniting my love for clothes. Right!?!
