Recognize my top?
Oh good. I thought you might. And no, your eyes are not deceiving you. That is indeed my skirt. The skirt I wore yesterday no less. We are taking remixing to a whole ‘nother level today. Initially I thought about remixing yesterday’s outfit completely and just wearing the same items in a different way. But then I realized that would require turning yesterday’s shirt into a skirt and yesterday’s tights into a head wrap. Which would mean
1. Altogether too much derrière exposure for everyone and
2. taking the turban trend to a whole new level. And probably not in a good way.

Also, I got this anonymous comment in my inbox today: “SlimFast is an all-natural weight loss supplement. It contains a proprietary mix of herbal ingredients that work to increase metabolism, burn fat, and safely suppress appetite. Unlike some other weight loss products, SlimFast does not contain any harmful chemicals or substances.”

Oh the irony. When is someone gonna make a GainWeightFast? Because I WILL buy it.
{See this post.}
Not complaining. Just sayin'...

StephWaung said...

there should definitely be a GainWeight Pill..
and i don't mind if you wear that shirt a hundred times.. :D

My roommate drinks meal replacement shakes WITH her meals to gain weight instead of actually replacing the meal with the shake to lose weight. Her doctor recommended it, and hey, why not drink an extra chocolate shake once or twice a day, right? Especially if it's a nutritionally dense chocolate shake.

Wendy @ The Shabby Nest said...

Found your blog a few weeks ago...can't remember exactly how, but it's great! First time commenting, though...

I must say after reading your older post that "trainer boy" could have been a "bit" more tactful. But, that said, I would really love to burn 1600 calories just by breathing.

That's more than I can eat in a day...fighting to lose baby weight is an ongoing battle...and now that I have past the age of 30 and my metabolism has more or less stopped...I have a feeling that I'll be fighting it for the rest of my life.

So my advice is not to worry so much about being thin (you look great!) because after babies come along EVERYTHING changes. ;-)

Col said...

Trust me, weight gain will come with age! Haha...it gets harder and harder to keep the weight off ;) anyway, I remixed a skirt into a shirt too, in day 13 of the 30/30...but it was actually my husband's idea! How about that?? Impressive right? Don't worry, I gave him credit in my post ;)

geri e. said...

ha! Fooled little ol me—quite the resourceful little lady! Love that scarf too.

p.s. STILL can't find my leather jacket from that day. I'm crying a little bit inside.

krisandkel said...

You are so creative with your outfits--and they always work so well! Oh, and love the new do!

First of all, genius on the skirt to top mixing! So many ideas for my closet now...

Second of all, and my main reason for stopping by for the hundred zillionth time this week, YOU'VE BEEN POSTED!!!

Yup I wrote an entire post about you and your awesomeness ONLY my dear! If you would like, you can clicky right over here --> http://littlegirloncampus.blogspot.com/2010/12/shout-out.html

Hope you have a *wonderful* day like always!

Erica said...

I have a skirt that I've always wanted to wear as a shirt but haven't been quite bold enough. I dunno if it would work b/c it's more flowy, but maybe I'll give it a try.

eleanor said...

That's amazing about the skirt! This outfit is great. This is going to sound completely corny - but all of your posts make me smile! You look so happy and that makes me happy!

Lilly said...

Very creative Syd, love the outfit!

I'm so glad I'm not the only person on this planet hoping to find a weight-gain-shake...or something. I feel like I've tried everything (but of course I haven't). You know one thing that helped me gain weight, no joke here... In addition to eating breakfast, lunch and dinner and all the snacks in between, I've added a new snack to my diet. Apple+peanut butter everyday = a 9lbs heavier Lilly. Oh yea, 9lbs baby lol. That is seriously the only thing that changed in my diet (well my husband is an awesome cook too).
You can also try drinking a Carnation Breakfast shake after a meal(pre-made ones taste AWESOME).
Even my Dr. today was impressed with the weight gain over the past year hehe
But I still need to gain 7-10lbs IMO. So I totally know what you mean.

Rachel said...

That IS taking remixing to a whole new level. Seriously impressed.

Angela said...

Ooh good idea with the skirt as shirt! :o)

you're hair looks really cute :)...but just curious..why is looking like an Arab on your bucket list?

Emma and Andrew said...

good for you for not letting someone get to you! keep being strong girl! They are just jealous! I know I am! With your cute outfit today and having yummy white snow! <3 today was the first flurries in nj this year!

Brooke said...

you are so creative with your outfits and you work those cowls so well!

Daisy said...

I have worn a skirt as a dress before but never a shirt. Great idea!!!!

kileen said...

this skirt goes so well as a shirt!!i did take remixing to a whole other level, but it's very creative and definitely works!

Amber said...

Eeeep!! You are so darn cute!!
Also, I have SOOOOO worn skirts as tops!! I once bought a LONG skirt, chopped it and hemmed it and made it into a short dress. So cute!!

Best Foot Forward said...

I love the crazy combos people come up with during this challenge; your skirt as a shirt is genius! Also I've been loving all of your cowl scarves...I have to get myself one; they look so cozy!

molly said...

I admire you SO much for taking photos in the freezing cold. and still looking adorable, nonetheless. I'm a baby in the cold, so I'm jealous that you can be outside without glowing white skin with a bright red nose! :)

Elizabeth//The Fainting Goat Blog said...

Two really great looks!! I had no clue that top was a skirt until I scrolled all the way down and saw the other post too. Love!!

Lisa D. said...

Whoa. Skirt = shirt? I never would have thought of that. I thought I was getting all crazy the other day for turning my dress into a skirt. You definitely topped that and then some. =)

I bet you could braid all your crazy colored tights together and make a sweet scarf. ;)

LOL I did the Slim Fast diet and it does work ... haha funny story! ... Love the look can't beliee that's you're skirt you're wearing!

vintagepencils said...

I might have laughed outloud at the GainWeightFast. I've tried gaining weight several times (and really before my wedding), but I can't do it without making myself sick from eating so much or so unhealthy. So...

Skirt as a top? Why not. You rock it.

Looks and Books said...

1. Love that bun.
2. Genius idea to wear a skirt as a shirt.
3. I covet one of those cozy cowls!

Dallin and Ashley said...

I want your problem of not being able to gain weight fast. Really. I want it. :) Actually, I'm okay with my body. Just in the process of getting all the baby weight off.

I love that you doubled your skirt as a shirt. Such a good idea and it looks so cute!

lauren said...

I need some gainweightfast too! but it would probably be sooo unhealthy! Your blog is my favorite fashion blog to read :)

lula said...

This outfit is perfection. I wish I had to buy GainWeightFast haha. Love the fact that you want to be mistaken for an Arab and that you changed your skirt into a top. Ingenious yes!
kiss kiss bang bang

Anonymous said...

you don't want to gain weight.. you wanna gain muscle.. you need to tone up already! :)

Anonymous said...

You are a cutey!! And they do have gain wait shakes and bars. I am 5'11" and was 95lbs this summer (ick) I've been on a gain weight diet for the last 2 months and am finally back up to 115! :)

A La Mode et Plus! said...

Wow i am amazed at how you remixed! Very cool :)

The Pantry Drawer said...

i absolutely love this outfit! that jacket is gorgeous and I love the reinvention of the skirt!

Pepa said...

I need to get my hands on a skirt like that! My local Forever 21 is slacking biiig time! Did you get it online?
ps: I love ALL of your outfits! So creative!

curls-and-pearls said...

Cute remixing - I had to go look at your previous post because I didn't believe you :P

The Artisann said...

rock it. i once wore my (longer) skirt as a dress. got more compliments than when i wore it as a skirt!

Blythe and Charlotte said...

Genius! I love all the colors together here! They work so well together!

Great idea to turn the skirt into a top! I need to do that myself.

Also, completely forgot to tell you that I posted about you in my 5 new favorite blogs to read after Thanksgiving. Go check it out!

Jess said...

Love this outfit! Cowls are so cozy and keep me so warm. The colors in this outfit remind me of rustic metal. Random. I know.

Colleen said...

A friend once mentioned to me that it's just as rude to call someone skinny as it is fat. I agree. My friend is 5'3 and 106 lbs and has been trying for about 6 months to be at least 110 and she's failing. she got to 108 one day but slipped back down. (I think that is similar to your height and weight if I remember correctly.) People often tell us "you need to eat a cheeseburger" or something like that. I want to know how to gain weight and still be healthy? Any ideas?

I also want to quit being sized out at stores. http://scrapandrun.blogspot.com/2010/11/vanity-sizing-dislikes.html

Anna Liesemeyer said...

So creative!! Love it:)
And I am glad I snagged you as a model before you got big and famous! ;) I looove Chaucee's work!

Hope you are enjoying the beautiful snow and get to go sledding with your hubbs!

ilene @ muchloveilly said...

cute outfit!!! the cowl and those boots are great. the skirt as a shirt, super creative! love it.

Em-Jae said...

Skirt as a top? I love it. Sometimes I mix it up like that, but I'm always afraid of telling people!

Oh the irony of weight gain... I hope it's going okay! I had the weight gain issue too... I weigh 15 more pounds now. I think I'm healthier, but the irony is, sometimes I feel TOO big even though I'm still an Xs. Weird. I think "natural" must be different to each person...?

in response to anonymous - not all of us muslims cover our heads either...

but i thought your joke was funny! i'm north african (close enough to arab) and have never been mistaken for one so it's on my bucket list too.

love the cowl, i'm all about the cowls lately.

Alessandra said...

adorable outfit, very cool remix.

J @ The Look 4 Less said...

I absolutely love that cowl. Great outfit as always!

annie said...

Super impressed with your skirt-as-shirt concept... If you can rock that, then surely I can rock red pumps with black tights? Yep, I'm busting those out tomorrow for sure.

Heather said...

Just to add some perspective to the weight gain topic... since Syd can't burp it makes it a lot harder to eat a lot. I have the same issue and I get very uncomfortablely full if I eat too fast and get trapped air.

The eating 6 times a day has helped me a lot. Good luck on your quest for better health!

Love the outfit, but thats a given. :)

Lovely outfit!
Love your style!

Laci said...

K first off- LOVE your blog. I do segments on Studio 5 here in Utah and I talked about the "high bun" someone comment on out fb page about your blog and that you had also talked about it. Thats when I started following and fell in LOVE with your outgoing personality and great sense of fashion!

SECONDLY- you just have to be appreciative of those "haters" every amazing blogger has them. It comes with the territory. People will always be jealous. It just means you have made it ;)

ashley said...

i know how you feel about gaining weight! i'm a whopping 98 lbs. and that's after giving birth to my first baby!

Jane said...

You are so cool. Also, tutorial for this hair?? It's lovely!

CodyG said...

it's strange how we can get a hundred nice and encouraging comments and then we get one negative one and it ruins our day. you are seriously a beautiful girl and you seem pretty funny/nice/normal so don't worry about it. you have plenty of admirers! including myself of course. i think this is my first comment on your blog but let me just tell you i am quite the fan. don't stop. ever. :)

Courtney said...

That cowl neck scarf looks so warm and cozy! I'm putting a scarf like that on my shopping list now that Kendi's challenge is over for me. woohoo - good luck on your last couple of days!

kayla and tyler said...

I'm with you on the weight gain thing!! Ive been trying to gain weight ever since I got married. I'm pretty sure its my birth control. It takes away my appetite. Your gorgeous girl, forget all the haters!! You just can't please everyone. And unfortunately someone is always going to get mad or offended at everything. Keep up your sweet spirit!

me and my lifestyle... said...

I love your blog!! And I love your outfits!!
You always give me great and simple ideas about how to mix my clothes. Inspiration!!

Best regards from Spain ;)
