Daily Threads: Colorblock


{Gap Colorblock TeeTarget Black Skinny Pants (similar), UO Suede Pump, Target Cognac Belt}

Here we go again! Another round of remixing, but this time with warmer and different pieces. The pictures are deceiving, huh? Well, while 30 of the 50 states are being hit with possibly the largest winter storm ever, down here in the southeast there is sun and warmth - and that means short sleeves and rolled pants to start this winter remix - hope you don't mind. I love the south, but I hate when spring gets lost. Sometimes we jump straight from winter to summer without notice, and that hurts my heart. While I have a love-hate relationship with spring (it's because of you,evil allergies!), I do love the cool morning and warm afternoons, the light dresses, and the blooming flowers.

Ok, that paragraph was getting out of hand and I needed to start a new one. Back to remixing! I'm doing it again! Remixing offers new ways to enjoy the wardrobe you already have. It pushes creativity and offers a new perspective on your own style. So I'm here. Again. To see what else I can get out of my closet! One down, twenty-nine to go!

Cute! I'm a little jealous of the warm weather- we're currently being DUMPED on by snow. Uggghhhhhh.

Love this. I hear colorblock is going to be big this spring! Those red suede pumps totally winterize this outfit. I'm so jealous of your warm weather...although it might be close to 70 here tomorrow! (And then back to 38 on Thursday...)

Michelle said...

I was really hoping you could incorporate the word crackhead in here somehow. Maybe tomorrow? jk.

I love the outfit and those pants! I'm gonna need to take you on my next shopping trip to Target. You always get the best stuff.

Dang girl... you look AMAZING! I would say "hot" - but does that make me creepy!? Oh what I wouldn't give to show some ankle today... TOO cold! I'll live vicariously through you.

SO CLASSY! It's super warm in AZ, too! And I love the black-white-redorange combo, those pumps are gorgeous!

Ashley J said...

Linley, my first paragraph of the 30 for 30 is JUST like yours...gotta love the South while everyone else is freezing to death!

Eclectic Flair said...

Those shoes really make the outfit! And I feel you on the warm weather dilemma, it's going to be in the 80s today here in Cali!

Miss B said...

look at those gams and hot heels!! I'd pay good money to look that good in cigarette pants! Love the color block top too!! You're just all kinds of mod chic!

Jen HaHA said...

You look so chic! I've been liking color block but haven't done it yet. I guess I won't for the next 30 days. I like the splash of color with your pumps!

It's good to know I'm not the only one who isn't experiencing a harsh winter. I live down south too and spring can get a little lost! The color block shirt is cute, especially paired up with the orange shoes!

I love the colorblocking going on in this outfit! So genius and chic!! Can you ever go wrong with a pair of red pumps? :)

And I am insanely jealous of your warm weather. Virginia is just enough in the middle of the country that we definitely experience winter and man am I feeling it! :)

i love this look, very cute!... I'm inspired

MONKEYFACE said...

Super sexy AND sophisticated. You have mad style skillz Linley! And I know what you mean about paragraphs getting a life of their own, lol :)

Law Mama said...

Um, I LOVE this! The red shoes with the black and white is awesome.

California seasons are similar - we don't really have a clearly definable spring. It's more of a wet season and a dry season.

Beverly said...

you're lucky, it's cold and raining here in MS! so I'm waiting to see if i can go out and take some picture of the 1st of 30 outfits..for now i'll enjoy everybody else's post..like yours! i love the black and red combo.

Melanie said...

Cuteness. I'm very jealous of the warm weather and those gorgeous shoes!

The black ankle skinnies are so Audrey Hepburn! Love!

Virginie Lavallée Bélanger said...

This outfit is fab! Love you in a big stripe for sure :)

Ha ha, your winter remix is taking place in summer weather while it's in the minuses here, no fair! But makes for a great variety of remixing!

Melody's Voice said...

Such a cute outfit. So cool and calm. I love its simplicity! I started the 30 for 30 today too!

I want the warm weather to be here to stay. This outfit reminds me of Sandy from Grease, in a very good way of course. Cute shoes too!

Pixie in Pumps said...

haha i know this little stint of warm weather is heavenly! Ours will be gone very soon, I don't know about you guys! =(

Those pants are amazing and look fantastic rolled up! I don't think I would have thought to do that with skinny jeans... cut to me trying to roll up the skinny jeans I'm wearing...

Nata said...

The stupid snow put a damper on my first 30x30 outfit :( You look great! I love the pop of color in your shoes. Can't wait to see what else you put together.

We're getting hammered by the Snowtorious B.I.G.

Natasha said...

ok I am SO jealous of your weather! I wish I could roll up my pant legs!
I love how classic and cute this outfit is...the colour block shirt totally throws me off...from a distance it makes it look like your pants are extremely high waisted (it looks cool)

megannielsen said...

Great first look! I love those shoes - and I"m soooooo jealous that it feels like spring to you. I think i'd be happy with milder weather!

GIRL AND CLOSET said...

Adorable! I love that this is your winter remix kick-off outfit! I am in Vancouver, we are also having pretty mild-ish weather (most days). I am loving it, especially the lighter layers part! Can't wait to see more outfits. xx veronika

Allison said...

Ahhh!! We used to live in Auburn, AL and I miss the springs there so much! It was so fun to brag to family back here in VA about the weather this time of year haha.

EL said...

Thanks for the sweet comment you left me a long time ago that I'm just not getting back to! :O I am LOVING the colorblocking and those red shoes are PERFECT!! you're so cute!! xo

Leslie said...

I agree - the color blocking is hot!

Linda said...

Happy to see you back in the mix, Linley!
While I am not in one of the areas getting the storm, it sure it cold. Can you send some of that weather this way? You look totally sunny!
