Since I’ve been on a mission to utilize every item in my closet, I wanted to start styling + featuring outfits that incorporated not only my seasonal go-to pieces , but also articles that I rarely wear!

With that said, I’m going to be starting a new floating series: “Mix + Max”.  It’ll be a styling series that focuses on the mixing of old + new pieces in an effort to help maximize the wardrobe. 🙂

Today, I wanted to take two of my go-to items this season [blanket scarves + leggings] and style a causal, but trendy daytime/weekend look .

NoNonsense Black Zip LeggingsI sifted through my closet + pulled out this fabulous red zip jacket from Forever 21. I got it a few years ago + cannot even remember the last time I wore it. Why? I have no idea! After throwing it on, I was reminded of how cute + comfortable it is. 🙂

I paired it with a plain long sleeved white T + one of my favorite new blanket scarves from the fabulous KnitPopShop! [Use code TAKE10 for 10% off your first order with them!]

For bottoms, I went with these cozy black leggings that I recently received from NoNonsense. They have the cutest little ankle-zip!

At this point, I would have normally grabbed a pair of booties or my OTK’s, but I wanted to keep the zipper exposed + the look more casual.  So, I opted for my Nikes…a pair of sneakers that I love, but rarely find myself wearing! I am so short + usually gravitate towards some form of a heel, but it was nice to get some use out of these shoes + I think they worked well!

A messy bun + a pair of jumbo sunglasses completed the outfit!Casual Fall Look

When you take a little extra time to look for outfit inspo + get creative with what you’ve got, you’ll find that you have way more than you think you do! Since beginning my #WIWTW series (+ now this one) I’ve been using every inch of my wardrobe + have found myself inspired to wear old things in new ways!

Thank you to my fabulous Mama for being my photog, thank you to NoNonsense for collaborating with me on this post, and thank YOU all for reading!

I look forward to sharing more of these Mix + Max posts with you guys! 🙂
