That was the prompt.
This coming from a girl who wears a skirt for a dress, dress for a skirt, and who knows what else and looks amazing doing it. Me, I'm really a jeans and t-shirt kind of girl.
Despite that, my other outfits have come together fairly quickly; just a tweak here, an addition there.
But today? Um, yikes.
I had in my head some vague idea that I'd use one of my skirts as a dress with something over/under it, but hadn't really firmed up the idea when the time came to get dressed.
I grabbed this pink paisley skirt and while it was not long enough to be a dress, I tucked it in and thought it made a reasonably nice shirt. But I could not, for the life of me, figure out how to complete the look. I tried a couple shirts over, couple of sweaters over, a couple of shirts under. I tried belted, not belted. Nothing looked right. I even tried making a scarf into a shrug of some sort, but it really didn't work out.
I finally settled for a cardigan, only to change my mind and go with one of the under options. But I wasn't loving it, and it was really too warm for today.
Finally, I thought of the demin jacket I wore on day 1. (I should have chosen that to be my remix item, but that would have been a little too easy.)
It was perfect.
I added a necklace, a necklace as a bracelet, a necklace as a headband, and a necklace as earrings. Okay, just kidding about that one, they are just plain old earrings.
Also, Tom has my camera and phone, so I experimented with photobooth. Not too shabby, but not great, either.
