Changing of the Seasons: Remixing Last Years Fall Pieces

Changing of the Seasons: Remixing Last Years Fall Pieces | Designing From My Closet | Plus & Inbetweenie Fashion Blog

I have to admit, writing blog posts three times a week can be a lot of fun and exciting most of the time.  Then there are other times when I feel a little lost as to what to write about.  Sometimes inspiration just isn’t there or other things in life are heavy on my heart.  So in the spirit of being an open woman with you, I have to say there is a change in me.  I am feeling the need for change in my life and I am ready to have it happen.  Leading the Designing From Your Closet Style Challenge was exhilarating and I thoroughly enjoyed interacting with the ladies that joined the class.  Sharing my outfit building tools and to see them in action was heart warming.  I am already planning another session of the class as well as having another online style course on another topic.  Doing these style classes are one way I am inviting a wonderful change into my life.  We shall see what other adventures God has in store for me and my family as we pray through this transition time.

And speaking of the DFYC Style Challenge class, a big part of it was shopping your closet.  I participated right along with all the other ladies in the challenge and got to create some great outfits using what I already had in my closet for the upcoming fall season.  Today I am going to be showing you a couple of outfits I put together using items I featured last fall on the blog.

LAST YEAR: FALL 2015

Last year I styled this chevron print faux wrap skirt with an ivory sweater, horn link necklace, taupe ankle booties, and a navy wristlet.  I still have all of these pieces in my closet and look forward to wearing this combo again.  Wanting to expand the use of this gorgeous skirt that happens to be one of my favorite pieces, I wanted to remix it for this year.

THIS YEAR: FALL 2016

For this time around, I chose to pick up on the navy and olive colors in the skirt and paired it with an olive green top and denim jacket.  A stone slab necklace, cream fringe handbag, and brown booties round out this years look.  I love how I was able to put this look together without even spending a dime.

Since I got this skirt last year, I wanted to pull a few skirts with a similar feel in case you are interested.

My next item I chose to remix for fall was this Aztec print poncho.  Last fall, one way I wore it was with a white tank, chambray a-line skirt, tall boots, and a belt.  In all honesty, it was one of my favorite looks from 2015 as a whole.

To give the same vibe, but with a little different flair, I stuck with the same principals of my previous years look.  Instead of the a-line, I chose a denim pencil skirt.  Then instead of a white layer underneath the poncho, I went more monotone with a gray tee.  I used the same belt, but went with a lower boot and decided to add a punch of color with the statement necklace.

And here are a few ponchos with a similar look.

These are just a couple of looks I put together during the DFYC Style Challenge.  I had a great time rediscovering what was in my closet.  Remixing what I already have is something I enjoy doing and I hope that you do too!
