Outfit Remix

This is not a new outfit, and it’s not the first time it’s graced the pages of this blog. I feel like I do a pretty great job of re-wearing clothes on here. Yes, I do shop more than the average girl (I think so at least), but I don’t want to give the impression that I only wear things once and then ditch. I usually mix and match pieces I’ve already worn into new outfits for the blog, but trust me, I re-wear exact outfits ALL THE TIME in real life. (Cue the “Lizzie McGuire, you are an outfit repeater” GIF.)

I like how this is pretty much the same outfit I wore this fall, but it takes on a whole new look with a different pair of shoes and a coat.

Instead of heels, I went with these cap toe slingbacks (omg I just saw that they come in a ballet pink now too). These are somewhere between a block heel and a flat– they give just enough elevation to elongate the leg and not too much where you can still walk all day in them.

My camel coat is still available in a couple of sizes and it’s marked down pretty low. You’ve definitely seen a lot of it this year– it’s one of my most worn coats. I love that it’s easily dressed up or down.

Hi Carly,
Love this outfit! I always love how chic you look in a camel coat but have a question. I have similar coloring (very fair, dark hair) although I have slightly more golden undertones to my skin. I feel like tan always washes me out. Do you think a red lip is key to this look, or is tan just not a problem color for you?


Love this Carly! The camel and black is such a good combo. Thanks also for taking a small step to normalise outfit repeating


The combination of colors is classic and timeless, and the all-black outfit is beautiful!


I know this wasn’t the “highlight” of the outfit, but that bow headband needs a shoutout. I’ve noticed a lot more bows on things lately, but that is such a cute and girly accessory without shouting “BOW!!!” in your face. It’s actually wearable. Love it.
