Summery Guest Blogging & Remix Reflections

Well, well, well... I have been completely in hiatus for the past month. I guess the combination of catching up on schoolwork after my trip(my class was only seven weeks & ended week before last), working tons, & general life craziness has taken all of my energy.

But today, the fabulously fun and talented Marisa Midori over on Good Good has been so kind as to have be as a guest blogger! Please go check out my post on the lovely things I look forward to this summer, as week as the rest of this week's guest posts on the summer loveliness.

Since I've posted on another blog, I think it's about time to get down & dirty here, too. On another note, I want to reflect on the 30 for 30 Remix that I finished in the beginning of March.
The Remix was quite hard for me for a few reasons:

1) There are several outfits that I wear more than every 30 days, especially my travel outfit (navy dress, leggings, cardigan).
2) Some items (e.g. my gray cardigan) are thrown with most outfits most days.
3) I didn't really wear the jackets at all.
4) I put too many pairs of pants (especially jeans) in my list of items.
5) It was warm in California when I chose my items, then it got chilly & cold, then I went to colder England & then even colder Germany.

Here are the things that I learned about myself & my style during those thirty days:

1) I do not have enough cardigans in my life.
2) I don't often wear jackets for style, just when I need a winter coat.
3) I'm pretty boring when it comes to style. There are a few outfits that I'm happy to wear at once a week, and a few items that I throw in with the majority of my outfits.
4) Cold weather and I are not yet acquainted enough for me to understand how to dress for the cold. When I was in Berlin, I basically just put as many layers on as possible.
5) On a normal day, I do not pay enough attention to accessories. Fair enough, I wear an apron, a hat, & sometimes a chef's coat at work, but from now on I'm going to try to pay a bit more attention to my style on the daily.

The Remix was fun, & it made packing for my trip a lot easier! It also made me thankful for all of the choices I have my in closet.

Thanks for putting up with my absence! I'm happy to be back. It's getting to be my bedtime, but I look forward to writing more soon! Berlin photos & more are coming up. What have you all been up to?

  1. Ooooh I am SO excited about the coming of summer. Is it warm & lovely in California already? I hope so. The sunshine state needs to prepare itself for a pasty, pale, sun-deprived Canadian!


I love comments almost as much as I love coffee. And both keep me going! <3
