mixed and matched

When Kim was out visiting, we stopped at a couple of consignment shops. I didn't expect to find anything, but on the clearance rack for 70% off of $80 was this adorable denim pencil skirt and jacket suit.

It fit pretty well and I took it home with me, imagining a colorful floral top to break up the dark denim top and bottom.
Then I realized how many options I'd have to remix if I wore the skirt and jacket separately!

Here are a few ways I wore the pieces last week:

The indoor pictures are so difficult. (the 3rd set are in my office on self timer and I could not get my head in the pictures no matter where I put the camera!)

I'm excited to see how many ways I can mix and match this set!

All of the outfits are so cute! I love that Burt's bees too- I've been looking for a shade just like that, and Burt's Bees is my fave!

Super cute!! I love it. I love your outfit posts--I've been trying to actually focus on style and outfits lately, and your posts were a HUGE inspiration! I really love your style.

Next time I'm in SD we should go thrifting or something together :)

Love love love! What great pieces - I love the way you've styled them too. I think wearing them together might be a little too much denim, but I love that you've mixed them with so many other things! You are so freaking adorable!

What a great find! Both of those pieces seem like you'll be able to endlessly remix them.
