2 Way Tuesday - Blue Pattern Skirt and Chambray Shirt

BLUE SKIRT - Kimchi Blue
CHAMBRAY SHIRT - American Eagle
BELT - Forever21
SHOES - Seychelles
CUFF - Made by my Mom
This is how I wore this skirt last month...
 Princess Sparkles is really good at rewearing things from her closet.  In fact, she tends to have one favorite piece and she'll wear it almost everyday all day until I force her to take it off so I can at least wash it.  For a while it was her yellow princess dress.  Then a pink furry sweatshirt.  She's always obsessed with her red sparkle shoes, her crown, her headbands and necklaces.  Her current obsession is her gold tutu skirt.  I can't say I blame her.  It's pretty fabulous.
Anyway, I've been feeling like I don't rewear my clothes often enough on my blog.  I'd really like to start utilizing my closet to the fullest, because I actually do like my stuff!  I find that I appreciate my clothes most when I do a "3 Ways to Wear" post or during a "30 Day Remix."  So in order to start being better about rewearing my closet (and not buying new clothes), I've decided to do "2 Way Tuesdays" where I'll be remixing a piece that I've already posted about!

Today I chose my blue scarf patterned skirt.  I'm not sure why, I just felt like it.  Anyway, instead of wearing it with a cardigan and tank I chose a chambray shirt to change it up.  But I did keep with the pop of pink.  I like how it looks with blue!

I have to say, I can learn a lot from Sparkles about appreciating my closet.  I only wish I could wear my clothes out the way she does.  Hopefully this "2 Way Tuesday" will help.  And honestly, if I had a gold tutu skirt like hers, I'd probably wear it everyday too!

That is such a cute skirt. I loved it best with the pink scarf.
Your daughter is so adorable. Mine is also obsessed with tutus, necklaces, wand and tiara. She will actually walk slow to keep that tiara on.
I love remixing from my own closet. I am always on the hunt for outfit photos that resemble the stuff I have.

I love both ways you've worn the skirt, but I really adore both pairs of shoes. SO fabulous!

My daughter is obsessed with her sparkly red shoes, too. Wears 'em with everything. EVERYTHING.

Two Way Tuesdays is a great idea! I think I enjoy my closet better when I remix, too. I've been trying to be sure I incorporate my new thrifts into my closet and wear them different ways. We should all heed the example of Princess Sparkles! Debbie http://thriftygirlvintage.blogspot.com

I love this idea--sometimes it's easy to forget about things that have been in the closet for a while, so I love the idea of a weekly remix! And I love the shades of blue together by the way!

I get hung up on my favorite clothes,so I've taken to hanging them after washing on the left and taking my new outfit from the right so I have to work myself back to my favorites. Princess Sparkles is an inspiration.. even Pigtails is checking her out. Is a mini me in the making!?

i like the first one, and this is a great idea to see how we make use of our clothes..the problem of having too many is you can't think very well what to wear...(that's how i think)..that skirt is a keeper!

Angelica Ng said...

Great idea! Each piece of clothing can have so many different personalities depending on how you style it. A small wardrobe can go far if utilized properly! Great pink scarf btw.
