Over the last year since I’ve been taking regular outfit photos and blogging about them, I’ve noticed a few pieces that I keep coming back to — my top five most remixable items. Want to know what they are? Head on over to Preethi’s blog and find out! 
And not to ruin the surprise, but you just have to know that my mustard cardigan is in there… 
Happy Wednesday!
  • I adore this top – fantastic!

  • okay, a) I wear my gold glittery flats almost daily (they're almost worn through and not so glittery anymore, and I got 'em at Christmas!) and b) a blazer is the best thing in the world. I work at a really casual office (i.e. I wear jeans basically every day), but I can get away with almost any top if I wear my blazer with it. Even t-shirts! I thrifted two at the same time, and they're my favorite way to dress up a "plainer" outfit, aside from giant statement jewelry.

  • Wow, that was supah long, sorry. haha

  • My go to piece is always either my black cardigan or my jean jacket. They are so easy to wear & I live in the Pacific Northwest…so you kinda always need a little jacket of some kind!

  • I am in love with that top you're wearing. You made it? I think I need to pay you to make me one too!

  • Great list of five…I agree, mustard cardigans are total neutrals! =) That top you are wearing in this post is AMAZING! Serious, I need one STAT! You should sell these!

  • just saw your guest post! you have some serious style, girl πŸ™‚

  • Hi Merrick, I love the looks you put together! I am simply fascinated by the top and was wondering if you have a pattern you used or if you made one yourself? It would be fantastic if you shared?
