It’s fun to give new life to old favorites by remixing them with new pieces. I’ve had both this cardigan and striped tee for several years ( 5+). Both are from Gap. Read on to see how I remixed them with new pieces for a casual fall outfit.

The cardigan has been worn in several office outfits, like the one above from 2013. The tee has seen it use and wear mostly during the summers with shorts. I wore it four years ago in a similar fashion as my current outfit. I’m remixing and pairing the two pieces with crop flare jeans and leopard flats in my current outfit. I’ve certainly upgraded my style of jeans over the past four years.
I though this would be fun to look back at how I’ve worn older pieces in my closet and how I still wear them today. You do not have to constantly shop and wear new things. A few updates will keep old favorites fresh. Invest in basics like this cardigan and striped tee and add a few updates here and there, like a new cut of jeans or leopard flats. My cardigan and tee have survived yearly closet purges for the past five years, but this is my second pair of leopard flats. I started with a much cheaper pair to see if I would really wear leopard flats, and then upgraded during the spring. The leopard flats are another item you will probably see five years from now, assuming they last that long. They have become classic closet staples for me.
Remixing your wardrobe is a great way to keep your outfits interesting and get more wear out of your pieces. How old are the pieces in your closet?
Happy Friday! It’s time for Five for Friday.
By next Friday, Thanksgiving will have come and gone. Everyone will be thanklessly indulging in consumerism on Black Friday, lol. Since Thanksgiving is coming, I’m sharing things I’m thankful for and Thanksgiving favorites.
1. I’ve decided that I want to make a broccoli/ rice casserole this year. I cook a few dishes to take to my mom’s. We used to have this dish yearly and then the hubby and I cut out grains and processed foods. The original recipe called for Cheez whiz, but I’m sure I have a whole foods version with real cheese recipe around here somewhere. I’ve got a craving for this and we occasionally eat rice now, so I’m putting this on my menu this year.
2. It’s been all things pumpkin. I know, pumpkin stuff usually starts in October, and I’m a little late to the game. Earlier this week I made these pumpkin bars, and I’m certain I’m making a paleo pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving.
3. Monday was Veteran’s Day. The older I get, the more this means to mean. I’m thankful for all of those who served and serve to keep us safe!
4. I’m thankful for all the modern day conveniences we have like stoves and refrigerators. I take these things for granted, and skip right over them when I’m thinking of what I’m thankful for, but can you imagine cooking and prepping that Thanksgiving meal without them!?
5. I’m thankful for my husband. He does so much for me and for us and our home. I don’t tell him enough.
What’s on your menu? What are you thankful for?
