Today, I am very excited to introduce a brand new series to you: the Head to Toe Remix! Each week, my darling friend Priya of Perfectly Priya and I will be remixing a different article from our closets that hasn't seen much love lately, starting from the head down. As two bargain shoppers, we decided that challenging ourselves to wear items that we had previously ignored or forgotten about would be the perfect way to make the most of items we already own. Today, we're starting off easy by remixing accessories. If you've been following my blog for a while, you've seen this necklace before. I got it from J. Crew factory while I was in Arizona for my brother's graduation in 2014 and I barely took it off that summer. After a few months of wearing it excessively, though, it went back on my necklace rack and has barely been touched since.
This challenge was a great way for me to remember what a gorgeous piece it is. Even though it's a little much for every day wear, I was able to make it feel like a natural addition to a simple black tank and a gingham skirt. My friend Lory and I found this beautiful doughnut shop in downtown Santa Ana, and it happened to be closed that morning. While I was bummed that I couldn't run in for a doughnut (or two or three or four), it was almost kismet seeing as we were able to stand in front of it taking pictures for as long as we pleased.
I'm over the moon excited to finally be collaborating with Priya, who will always be one of my favorite blogging friends. She's been killing it even more than usual lately (which is saying something as she always kills it), and her remixing of her summer scarf is beyond gorgeous. Be sure to head over to her blog for more!
A couple of ways I styled this necklace in 2014:
Two years later and I still own and regularly wear almost all of the items in these photos. Maybe I am a master remixer. At least that's what I tell myself.
