Friday repeats

A couple of weeks ago, we were out for happy hour celebrating a co-worker's 30th birthday. As I was sitting there enjoying my Grey Goose cosmo, another co-worker was checking out my outfit and said, "You never repeat outfits." She's partially right. While I may not completely re-wear an outfit 100% from head to toe, I certainly re-wear individual pieces all the time. I just like to spread the love and mix and match pieces in my closet so to the naked eye, it appears like it's a brand new outfit yet I'm not wearing any new purchases. I decided to start a regular series on the blog called "Friday repeats" and share some of my remixing ideas. Let's get started!

Irresistible Me Hair Extensions

One of the things that I was surprised to learn in my blogging career is that many people wear hair extensions. Call me naive, but I had no idea. Yes, this shock is coming from someone who wears lash extensions. I've always been intrigued to try them and my curiosity has just continued growing, but I never have. When Irresistible Me approached me to receive a free set of hair extensions in exchange for an honest review on my blog, I was torn.

Sunnies: Gucci | Earrings: Forever 21 | Necklace: JCrew Factory | Bag: Tory Burch (option) | Sweater: JCrew | Bottoms: Current Elliott (option) | Shoes: Vince Camuto

I scored this adorable fringe sweatshirt on crazy sale thanks to a tip from Ailsa. It is way too fun and I absolutely love it! As I was putting this outfit together, I realized that it's just a modified version of my outfit here from last fall. I guess if the outfit combo isn't broke, don't fix it, right? But yes, this sweatshirt was a pretty awesome buy. I love that it's just a basic sweatshirt but the fringe makes it extra special!!

Olive skinnies

Sunnies: Gucci | Necklace: Gifted from Rachelle | Bag: Charming Charlie (c/o) | Top: Express (shop current colors HERE) | Tee: Express | Fit Bit: Charge HR | Bottoms: Gap | Heels: BCBG

I have been on the lookout for jeans in the perfect shade of olive. I have a few olive-ish bottoms, but they aren't quite the right color and my eyes have always been straying to find THE perfect olive. When these came up on Gap's website, I didn't hesitate. Especially since I had a $45 reward plus they were having $45 off $100. Done and done. I was worried because I had to buy them in "petite" vs. a "short" length, and sometimes petite clothes fit my body weird. These are great though, and I absolutely give them two thumbs up!

Offset stripes

Sunnies: Oakley (borrowed from the husband) | Jacket: Express (other colors HERE) | Necklaces: Kendra Scott here (c/o) and here | Bag: Charming Charlie (c/o) (option) | Sweater: Trouve | Ring: Kendra ScottBottoms: Gap | Booties: Joie (more sizes and colors HERE)

It was unseasonably warm on Saturday when the husband and I were out and about running errands. So warm. Too warm for this jacket even as it ended up coming off shortly after taking these pics! It definitely made me excited for longer days and warmer temperatures even though this winter really hasn't been that bad.

Flat lay favorites: Gingham top remix

I'm switching it up a bit today and sharing my random roundup in the form of flat lays. As I was trying to pull together a group of outfits to post, I realized a common theme: this gingham button up. It's definitely a staple in my closet, and I consider it a neutral. Much like stripes, it adds instant interest to an outfit, and the pattern mixes well with other prints. Need to see it to believe it?

Berry and Camel

Sunnies: Ray Ban | Necklace: Kendra Scott (gifted) | Bag: The Clothes Line Boutique (option) | Jacket: Express (similar) | Sweater: Banana Republic (option) | Bracelet: Paperdolls Boutique (c/o) | Skirt: Express | Heels: Vince Camuto

I'm all about my neutrals this week. Yes, I consider berry a neutral. It just goes with all the things. And I forget that neutrals pair perfectly together. I really loved the way this entire combo turned out. Pretty effortless and just as comfy as wearing jammies.
