When I began blogging, I was in college full-time and working part-time as a cashier. My funds were limited and I built much of my wardrobe from thrift store finds. Since my closet wasn't very large, I challenged myself to wear pieces again and again, but never the same outfit head-to-toe. As time went on and my blog grew, I started to enjoy looking through the archives to see how I had worn a dress in the past; it became great inspiration to stay creative and really helped me stick with my goal of stretching every piece of my wardrobe.
Now, I run a little feature called "Saturday Remix" where I show 4-7 different outfits based on one clothing item. Some dresses get tucked into skirts or even safety-pinned into new shapes, so the outfits all end up looking unique. Recently, Ruche asked to sponsor a remix and sent me the "nautical love story striped dress". It was the perfect piece for a remix, and I easily built 7 different outfits around it without even breaking into tights and heavy layers (it's too hot here for those right now anyway!).

Thank you, Rebecca! ♥
Here is how she remixed our nautical love story striped dress:
Pair with a cardigan or jacket for casual wear. Cute with flats or heels!
Turn the dress into a stylish top, and tuck it into a skirt or shorts for sunny days.
Perfect for unique layering! Add cozy pieces for the fall or dress it up for a special occasion.
What's your favorite remixed outfit? We'd love to know how you would remix this dress too!
