Favorite outfit of March 2017

Time for a quick look back at my outfits in March* and vote for your favorite!

My most popular outfit this month, in terms of total views, was far and away #4, featuring how I was inspired to remix my wrap dress as a long cardigan. I had several favorites this month, but I ultimately also had to go with #4. I felt like I took a style risk, and it paid off! I felt AWESOME in this outfit, true to my favored “long ‘n’ lean” aesthetic AND love of remixing. 😀

Favorite outfit of February 2017

Time for a quick look back at my outfits in February and vote for your favorite!

My most popular outfit this month, in terms of total views was #1, featuring my cat-and-books-print skirt and patterned over-the-knee socks. This was also my personal favorite! It was fun to remix this skirt in a totally different way this month, with patterned over-the-knee socks and burgundy brogues. It was so nice I wore it twice!

Note:  After this post went live, I realized that I had accidentally left off the final outfit published in February, my red + black + smiley face umbrella ensemble. My apologies for the totally unintentional oversight! I will add that outfit to the March outfit retrospective and poll.

My collection of novelty print socks

I often feature my shoes on this blog, but rarely my socks. When I do highlight my socks, it’s usually in a monthly budget post. Here are some posts in which I have featured socks or slipper socks:

Clockwise, starting from top left:  Banned books socks (budget post)  //  Solid-colored slipper socks (budget post)  //  Print slipper socks (day-in-the-life post)  //  Library card socks (outfit post)

Novelty print socks

So that got me thinking… why not highlight my small-but-growing collection of novelty print socks? Sounded like fun to me! 😀

I have had these Wonder Woman socks for years {here’s another pair of Wonder Woman socks} — way before I started this style blog in 2012 — but they’ve never made it to the blog. That’s probably because I almost always wear them at home. Same goes for my pairs of bookworm socks, which my mom gifted me years ago. This past year, a former colleague gifted me the library card socks, and then I scored these banned books socks for free from Out of Print Clothing during their Banned Books Week sale last October.

Retrospective remix

Last November, I highlighted favorite fall outfits I would wear again, which was a fun retrospective. (It was fun for me — was it fun for you? 😉 ) If you’re a longtime reader (thank you), then you know I love remixing!

It’s also good timing, as a way to brighten up these often dreary winter days. February is the hardest month for me, y’all. So to perk myself up, I thought it would be fun this time to browse my outfit galleries for winter outfits I would (and do!) wear again.

Wear your heart on your sweater | Happy Valentine’s Day

Happy Valentine’s Day! I thought it would be fun to go literal this year to celebrate the holiday, to round up different ways I’ve worn my heart on my sleeve sweater. 😉

I’ve had these two Old Navy heart sweaters for years. I first got the pink-and-grey heart sweater in 2012, and I snagged the burgundy-and-pink “Follow Your Heart” sweater on clearance a couple of years ago. And I still love to wear and remix these heart sweaters!

♥ Remixing = real life. ♥
