Today’s OOTD (outfit of the day) features a black and white tweed blazer, red tank, black pencil skirt. I went with classic accessories like red drop earrings and black heels to keep it simple, since the multiple textures/patterns felt like enough was “going on.” I was hesitant to wear a tweed blazer in the summer, but the structure of it (like the light colored lining and 3/4 sleeves) combined with a cold office environment told me it would be legit.
Speaking of outfits, I have really been wanting to do a big remix challenge. (I did a 7×8 spring remix and really enjoyed it!) As it turns out, Caitlin from Greater than Rubies is hosting a 20×30 remix that starts next week. If I can get my act together, I plan to participate. That would mean you’ll see the 20 pieces I picked on Monday, then every Monday in July, you’ll see the outfits I put together using those items—30 in total if I do it right! The hubs will be at a bachelor party most of the weekend, so I plan to plan out my outfits while he is away…oh, and catch up on my Real Housewives. I know how to have a good time!

I think I might link up with ya too! I love. Good remix challenge and I already feel like my summer wardrobe is super limited.
Yes Lindsay- would love that!! Do it girl!
I do the same thing when my husband is away too! He is not a big fan of the housewives and I am sure to get all caught up when he isnt home;)
And I LOVE this blazer! I have been on the hunt for a great tweed blazer but just haven’t found one that meets my needs!
YES!! I love my Real Housewives- guilty pleasure for sure! Hope you can find a blazer that works…it’s a little hard to find in summer but by fall I’m sure you will have plenty of options!
The blazer is sharp! I also love how the red looks against it! Nice work, as always, lady!
Awww you’re so sweet- thanks Meghan!
Love that gray blazer, so chic. And I will vote for you. =)
Welcome by sometimes. I miss hearing from you.
Take Care, Ada. =)
Thank you so much Ada!
I love that blazer! It’s so cool with the AC I like an extra layer in the summer. And I am looking forward to RHONJ starting soon! Woohoo! Gotta love that drama!
Exactly! Oh man…New Jersey is on a whole different level of crazy- totally my guilty pleasure!

Hooray for the 20×30 remix challenge! I’m glad to have a buddy doing it alongside me :) I really like this outfit as well, by the way. You look great in bold red, and the tweed blazer is really fun!
Yayyyy! Thanks Brynn- I’m going to need some encouragement- I’m having trouble picking out 20 things that will be versatile for some reason…this is ridiculous!
Hello! I found your blog through Putting Me Together’s link up. I’ve probably spent the last half hour reading your blog. Haha. I love it! :)
I’m so glad you like it Vanessa- thank you!! :-) Keep on coming back!
