Remixing a Summer Top for Fall

ABSTRACT TANK - Thrifted
SKINNY JEANS - H&M
BLACK CARDIGAN - Old Navy
BROWN WEDGE BOOTS - Steve Madden
BRACELET, EARRINGS, RING - Jewelry Party

HOW I WORE IT IN JUNE:
PINK CAPRIS - Hudson
PINK BELT - Thrifted
EARRINGS - Forever 21
T-STRAP SANDALS - Forever 21 (via TJ Maxx)
I really enjoy watching how Pigtails goes around and copies everything Princess Sparkles does.  Like just today Sparkles was eating her mac n cheese and decided to carry it over to a smaller table. Pigtails immediately grabbed her bowl, climbed down her chair and followed her sister.  She also loves to wear her sister's (dirty) socks (and sadly, mine too...again, dirty ones).  I even once found Pigtails wearing Princess Sparkles panties over her diaper.

Today's fashion challenge from Megan Mae Daily and Casual Chic Kiki is to remix a summer top for fall.  I chose a thrifted patterned top so I can also link up to "Thursdays are for Thrifters" over at Spunky Chateau!  I'm not sure if I'm cheating but I remixed the summer top for fall just by adding boots and a cardigan.  I also decided to wear some jewelry I just bought at a friend's party.  I promised Polka Dots I would show her what I bought, so what better way than to post them on my blog!

Anyway, I love getting inspiration from these fashion challenges and also from other bloggers.  It's a little like Pigtails and her inspiration, Princess Sparkles.  But don't worry, I won't be wearing anyone else's panties :)

I love how you took this bright summery top and styled it to perfection for fall! My younger sis used to copy everything I did- it would drive me crazy!

Kezzie said...

ooooh that print is sooo fun on that top!

Jaclyn said...

Yes! I loooove remixing summer stuff for fall. I've got a sun dress on today with a pair of leggins and a sweater. Total double duty!

Your post made me laugh--no stealing panties!

I steal ideas from bloggers all the time. I'm really liking your brown wedge boots. I'm so happy it's cold enough for me to wear my fall boots again. You did a great job on the challenge. And thanks for the nice comments on my blog!

Have a great weekend.

It's amazing how different the top looks in your fall look--color
looks richer when not paired with
a pastel. Those argyle sox look fabulous on Pigtails. She should keep them!!

Another wonderful outfit to wrap up Remix Week. It was so fun seeing what you put together the last few days! I love how you took this bright summer top and toned it down with subtle pieces for the fall season. I think it looks great with the cardigan and denim. Very casual, but also very chic. And those boots! I honestly have loved every pair of shoes you have debuted this week! Have a fabulous weekend!

Sometimes it takes simple pieces to transition into fall. So I like this outfit because I'm going to be doing the same thing when it gets chilly. Love the ring!

Marina said...

Oh my, that ring - wooow!! Love it!

I'm glad you're staying away from the "new to you" underwear, haha! :) I love how that top is a fun pop of color with the jeans and boots. Yay for fall weather!

aki! said...

Your kids are so cute... and you too!

I've never thought about a) summer dresses or b) how to transition them into the fall, but ever since my summer dress obsession this summer, I've been loving all of these posts.

I really adore this top. I think I told you that the first time I saw you wear it, but I might love it even more now. The colors are adorable! The print is beautiful. I just looooovvveeeeee it. That's "love" with extra letters, which means a whole lot.

Doesn't seem like cheating to me...but your boots make me wish it would actually cool down enough to pull out a pair :)

I have my annual trip to the pumpkin patch (for Brigid, of course...always for Brigid) scheduled in a couple of weeks, and if I don't get to wear boots and a sweater of some sort, I'm going to be disappointed. Pumpkin patches and shorts just don't go together, at all!

I love the remix..but I'm so distracted by the other cuties posted about...
