Remixing Clothes and an Announcement.

Happy Friday all. I better keep this as short as possible today since I have to pack for the three of us. Later today, after my husband gets out of work, we will be driving to the beach and staying there for the next 3 days. Sunshine, sea and sand here we come! I will be back stopping by your blogs and commenting in the beginning of next week. What are you up to this weekend?
So, I have worn these 3 outfits over the last couple of weeks. I figured I better wear some Yellow before Summer is gone and this Soft Yellow Tee is also in a Soft, Comfortable Cotton and it has Pretty, Puffy Sleeves with little buttons on the side, why have I ignored it? So, just like with most outfits this week, I am wearing some items that I am no longer neglecting, sort of remixing my closet (it happened without thinking about it) at the same time. First I paired the Tee with my New Black+White Striped Maxi Skirt. After purchasing it almost 2 months ago, it's about time I wear it, no? Then, I paired it with my Ikat Black+White Shorts which I love. My sub-conscience told me to wear this Yellow Top with B+W Prints on the bottom again, and without even thinking about it I chose Black Flip Flops once again and even the same hair-style (a messy bun) and no jewelry, since it was hot. It's funny because these first 2 Outfits were worn many days apart from one-another yet they are so similar. Then, you see those same Ikat Shorts again pattern-mixed with my Red+White Striped Tank Top. I threw in some more White+Red Accessories for good measure and I was done. 

So what I basically did here I took one item and passed it on to the second outfit, then I took an item from that second outfit and passed it on to the third outfit. Note, these were not worn 3 days in a row, but as I was looking into my Outfit Photos on my lap-top I noticed this remix. Perfect to post these 3 Outfits today because I am announcing that I will be doing a 30 for 30 Summer remix. I know what you are thinking that Summer is almost over, but trust me it ain't over before the end of September around here. As I am typing this, is around 90 degrees. Plus, in real life I started my 30 for 30 Remix Summer challenge on Monday this week, which means I will finish by mid September which calendar-wise means it will still be Summer. So on September 1st, I will start posting my 30 for 30 Outfits on the blog, and sometime next week I will post the items I selected for this challenge, so stay tuned. =)
