20 of 30 and 21 of 30: Tiger Sweatshirt Remix.

It's another day, another two-fer post. Since you will most likely get more than 30 Outfits on a 30 day period of my remix challenge, I am trying to get everything posted by no later than the first week of May. So you will get a few two-fer posts. I tried to dress up my Tiger Sweat-shirt for these 2 Outfits. 

The first one came out OK - not my best, but definitely not awful, it's cute enough and the Brown+Black looks nice together. The addition of the Black Blazer and the Bronze Wedges was a good idea to dress up the Sweatshirt. The Long Black Beaded Necklace was just enough bling because the Sweatshirt is already a Statement piece on its own. The second one I am not pleased with at all and I debated about posting it. But I am all about keeping it real guys. After all one of the reasons why I did this challenge is to teach myself better ways to remix my closet and try things out, in the process learn to dress better. This Outfit sounded good in my head when I planned it. In actuality I like the Sweatshirt and the Burnt Orange Tights (which I thought would pick up the  colors from the top) and I love my Ponte Black Shirt-dress, but once I put them all on, something felt off. The Sweatshirt was too loose over a dress that is a comfy fit, not too tight. The Tights looked a little off too. Maybe it would have worked best with bare legs (too cold for those) or Black Tights. What do you think of each Outfit? OK, let's look at each Outfit a little closer.
Pros: It's simple and put-together without trying hard at all. It's nice for a Mom-on-the-go.
Cons: I am wearing Cords and the Colors Black+Brown which remind one of Autumn. It definitely feels more like a Fall Outfit than a Spring one.
Black "Tiger" Face Sweatshirt w/ Quilted Shoulders: A Local Boutique (New).
Modern, Black Blazer w/ Rounded Collar: White House Black Market.
Hazelnut-Brown, Corduroy Pants (come with Skinny Belt): Bershka (New).
Black Metallic Chain Necklace w/ Black & Silver Beads: The Limited.
Bronze/Taupe Metallic, Round-Toe Wedge Pumps w/ Buckle Decorations: Andrew Geller (New).

Pros: I like that I thought outside the box, layering a Sweatshirt over a Dress. Also, the addition of the Neon Yellow Bracelet & Earrings was good to add some Spring into these Fall Colors. And the Leopard Watch works well with the Tiger/Leopard on the Top.
Cons: But, like I said this Outfit doesn't work. I felt like Mary Poppins LOL. I learned not to repeat it again, however.

And, you may have noticed that over the last 3 Outfits I did a little remixing of "Take One - Pass it on". I took one piece of clothing from one Outfit and passed it to the second Outfit, like I did earlier in this challenge, also. Just look at the collage, below.
I promise next Outfit in the remix will be a lot more suited for Spring. Stay tuned.

Stay Stylish and Springy on this Terrific Tuesday!
