Remix Outfit #7

The sun peaked through off and on despite the prediction of there being rain. I brought my floppy hat because the sun was out when we left the house, but ended up not wearing it coz the sun soon disappeared. Despite the bipolar weather we had, we had a fun family day.

We took a trip to the mall to buy one of my friends a birthday present and it was really hard not to go to my favorite stores and shop for myself. And it's only Day 7, lol. I have 23 days yet to go.

Anyways, after the mall we ate a lunch at Red Robins which was of course a delicious meal. Rylan loves the corn dogs there, or just corn dog in general (:

Remix Outfit #6

TGIF! So many great things about today:
  • My eye is almost 100% back to normal
  • The sun was beaming beautifully today
  • It was actually warm enough to take a nice walk/run outside
  • Drinking Iced Passion Tea Lemonade after not having it for how many months was delish
  • I realized that I've lost 11lbs since the beginning of the year! 
I am in love with this sweater cardigan, because one it goes with just about everything and two it was only $10 at H&M. I wanted to stay away from my usual wannabe model/look book poses and wanted to have some fun with picture taking.

I was/am planning on making a video about a special announcement tonight but I think I'm going to wait a little longer until it's a for sure thing. Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Remix Outfit #5

Another beautiful day in Washington today as the sun peeked it's way from behind the clouds at moments at a time. Sometimes it's hard for me to plan what to wear for the next day when our weather here is so bipolar. One minute it's sunny and the next it's snowing or hailing.

I finally decided to wear the skirt I had chosen for this challenge and paired it with one of my favorite tights that I thought I had lost. And although these pictures are a little washed out, I am slightly in love with how the sun beams from behind me.

Blog Giveaway Winner!

I was the lucky winner of The Walking Recessionista & Fashionplate Cheapskate blog giveaway! They are both amazing bloggers. When I came home to see the package, I was overjoyed and excited to open it. I am in love with the rings & the personalized stationary. Entering the contest I did not at all expect to win, but when I found out I did I was stoked.

Thank you Cheyser and Christen for the items. I absolutely love them all!

Remix Outfit #4

My eye is feeling a lot better today (well off and on) which is why I haven't been wearing any makeup. I've realized as I'm sure you guys have also that most of my bottoms are black & the reasoning behind that is because we're not allowed to wear jeans at work which is why I chose to go with different colors and patterns for tops while my bottoms stayed about the same. But at least I added in a skirt into the mix, still not sure when I'm going to be wearing that btw.

Amazingly, the sun shined beautifully today long enough for me to go outside and take these pictures. The sun was deceiving however because it was windy and chilly. I got a lot of compliments from both patients and co-workers about that  green cardigan and it's honestly becoming one of my new favorite cardigans.

Predictions are that we'll have another nice weather tomorrow. We'll see about that, I better go through my 30 items and figure out what I can wear.

Remix Outfit #3

I realize this outfit is a little bland in that there's really no color to it except for my ring - but I would say this is much of an improvement from what I wore yesterday. I worked a later shift today and so I was actually able to take a picture before heading to work. The weather was fairly nice today, it rained a little but as I was getting off work at 7, the sun beamed through our windows at work. I thought I was going to go blind with how bright it was lol.

My eye was still in pain earlier today but after seeing a eye specialists and getting the right antibiotics for my eye it's feel less painful. I can't wait to be able to wear my contacts again.

Remix Outfit #2

Mondays are usually my "lazy" days, hence why the effort in dressing cute is almost nonexistence. Also, Ish has been the one taking almost all but one of my outfit pictures so the quality of these pictures are poor. I had a long day with being so exhausted and the current complications I've been having with my eye. After work I had to rush to Woodinville to see a doctor who couldn't really tell me much but that I needed to see an ophthalmologist sometime soon. I'm anticipating for their call to tell me they were able to make an appointment for me. Which also explains why I've been wearing my glasses more than I've ever been.

Anyways, sorry for the boring outfit posts. My creative juices usually don't wake up till around Tuesday, so hopefully tomorrow will be better haha.

P.S. Excuse our messy temporary room... It gets blown up by my 2 year old son lol

Remix Outfit #1

So, today was the beginning of my journey in this 30 for 30 remix challenge. I didn't even know which outfit to start with. Ish had a car shoot with his friend Paul in the afternoon & although the sun started peaking through the clouds I knew it was still a lot colder than it appeared so I opted to wearing my blazer & jeans. I've been wanting to wear this open back tank top but Washington's weather has not been so nice the past few months that I haven't been able to.

After the shoot was over, we decided to grab some early dinner at Red Robin. I tried their Grilled Turkey Burger for the first time and it was delicious! There was a touch of spice to it as well, might have to be my first choice of pick from now on when we go there lol.

PROPS baby!

H&M cardigan, bag, necklace, belt, Charlotte Russe boots, thrifted Calvin Klein shorts, Urban Outfitters tank

Props to Marz was having another mix tape release party and we were asked to go, so we did! It was at White Rabbit Lounge in Fremont, my best friend picked Ish and I up and had a great time. Props always throws a good show so I'm really glad that we were able to come out and have a good time with friends. I was really tired though, so instead of dressing up I decided to just stay as comfortable as possible & I'm glad I did because I was able to enjoy the event a lot better.

I love his 2nd mix tape release, I've been listening & bumpin' to it in my car since then. lol

30 for 30 Remix Challenge

So, as I mentioned in my previous post I was going to give this 30 for 30 remix challenge a try. I spent a little time looking through my closet yesterday picking things out & it was hard (such an understatement) considering I had to really think about what items I would be able to interchange and work with for the next 30 days. I spent some more time today and finally picked my 30 items. I really tried to stay away from using too much black (I failed in the bottoms section, except for those pair of jeans, but at least I included a skirt right?) or neutral colors. We'll see how the next 30 days goes, when I mentioned the no shopping for the next 30 days, Ish knew it'd be an ever more of a challenge for me. I will post my first outfit later on in the evening.
