Closet remix: Jumpsuit and crop top

Over the past few weeks, I have become really interested in remixing and restyling my closet pieces. I think it has something to do with having run out of my shopping budget for the year; which usually pushes me to be more creative.

My creativity came in handy this Saturday, as I prepared to attend a wedding. The week prior, I almost lost my mind trying to figure out what to wear. I ordered two dresses which didn’t quite work out for me. I ended up returning them. By Saturday evening, I had run out of other options and was basically left with my closet and I had to get creative quickly. I thought of re-wearing my outfit from the recent Mother’s Day Shoot, but I knew I was just being lazy. I decided to push myself a little harder.

I opted to wear a jumpsuit I recently purchased from Forever 21. By itself, the jumpsuit (which is backless) is probably more suited for a resort/beach getaway with the hubby. To make it more wedding-appropriate, I layered the jumpsuit with a crop top. I loved the combination of the light pink of the crop top and the bronze of the jumpsuit – both of which are analogous to each other (that is, lay next to each other on the color wheel). Here is how the outfit turned out:
