New layers

skirt: jcrew, thrifted CA // chambray: f21 // lace: zara // moss cardigan: gap via thrift, CA // shoes: thrifted, CO //
belt: thrifted, VT // mini backpack: gift (thanks, ma!)

This outfit is a perfect example of why I love remix challenges: I was scrolling through the archives of Calivintage and wanted to try to recreate a similar aesthetic. I love this chambray (I've basically been living in it these last few months), and I love this lace top too -- but it's felt decidedly less versatile. Now that I've realized I can use it for layering with more shirts than just a plain white tank top (duh), I'm brimming with new ideas. Plus, I really liked how this look came together, and I'm confident I wouldn't have stumbled onto it if I had access to my full wardrobe. 

I also really liked how it was pretty warm this weekend -- look ma, no tights! Given Portland Maine's current temperature (mid 30s -- eek!), I'm especially thankful for the temperate weather. For those of you facing the onset of (more) snow, you're in my thoughts. Stay warm, y'all!


  1. Now I get to be inspired! I have all the pieces to recreate the top part of this outfit and I don't think I would have thought of it until I saw this. Thank you!

  2. Whoa..I love the layer of the lace top over the chambray. My mind has literally been blown because I have both of those pieces in my closet and in my 30x30, aka, I can totally pull this off!

    But, you look absolutely gorgeous! I love those shoes! (and your jumping picture, tehe)


  3. you have such a cute look!
