Closet Remix: 01.17.2011

Pin It
The weather is getting better in Ohio. Although, it is still freezing outside, the sun does come out and play. Today’s outfit consists of my absolute favorite pieces. This H&M camel skirt has become my work staple. My Mom hemmed it for me not too long ago. She took up about an inch. I think it looks so much better than the unaltered version. The J.Crew silk blouse was a recent purchase from the outlet. I got it last month despite the fact that it is way too big on me. The reason I bought it because I love the mixed prints so much. I was hoping that my Mom will be able to alter it somehow. She said it would be hard because of its side zipper. The looseness is not noticeable when tucked in. Of course I can’t get enough of my petite V-neck boyfriend cardigan. I took these pictures during my lunch break at work. Hence, minimal makeup and a dull face (Eekkkk!). Continue reading...

What I am wearing:
Skirt: H&M - sz 2 (buy similar here - small sizes are available)
Blouse: J.Crew Silk Cami - sz 0 (buy similar here - available in 4 colors)
Pumps: Ann Taylor Perfect Leather Pump (buy it here)
Coat: American Rag Tweed Coat *Macy's brand* (buy similar here in black)







1. that coat is gorgeous on you.. it hits your legs at a perfect length

2. i love bf cardi's too!

3. idk what you are talking about dull face because you look gorgeous


4. ok i'm seriously dying over how luxurious that camel colored skirt looks on you!


Love the cami.


gosh coat is a nice fit. jealous!!

I definitely can't tell the shirt is big. thumbs up to this outfit.


Why, you're right about that shirt. It's gorgeous! Love the colors in it.

Books and Looks


The colors are so masculine with a feminine fit! I love the way your cardigan fits, very wide so you can see that gorgeous top.


wow, i'm loving the printed blouse on you!! and i'm in love with that tweed coat. and i can't believe you're going bare legs with all that snow!

Really Petite

Oooo I am in love with the blouse! You look great Sydney! :)


That blouse pairs so well with the camel skirt! I wish H&M still carries that skirt (and that I can find it in a size 2), it seems like it would be so versatile for both work and even play. Agree with Kileen that I'm surprised you're bare-legged in snowy weather! I can't even do that here in SoCal in the current 60 deg weather!

I like the minimal makeup!!

That shirt is great!! So is everything else!

Are you bare-legged in the snow!?!? You, brave, brave girl!!


I love the print of that cami! And it pairs very nicely with your skirt - isn't it great to be able to have things hemmed without going to a tailor? I'm surprised to see you still have snow in Columbus - we had 70 degree (but windy) weather here in Cincy today.

Yay, the vibrant blouse you tweeted about! It looks great and i would never know it's big based off of these photos, if you didn't mention it. Are your legs cold bare?


Oh my gosh, i LOVE that blouse and tweed coat! so pretty!


You styled this outfit perfectly. All the colors complement each other so well. Not to mention the fit, good choice there!


what dull face? you still look gorgeous as always! I love the whole outfit, especially that tweed coat. What a great find! Was it at macy's juniors sections or adults? I never find petite-friendly coats at Macy's.


@kileen, @PetiteXXS, @Michelle, @PetiteAsianGirl I get used to the cold weather. If it’s higher than 40 degrees outside, it feels like spring time. It looks cold with all the snow on the ground but it wasn’t that bad. I am so jealous of your warm/sunny weather in SoCal and TX.

@olyvia This jacket is at least 4 years old. I got it at Macy’s juniors department. I believe they’re still carrying this brand. Definitely check it out!

Lovely Outfit!!!


What a lovely outfit and such wonderful colors and textures! You look amazing with minimal makeup and it gives us a chance to see the real you...and you look beautiful. =)

I... LOVE this outfit. There's just the right accent of bold color, but overall neutral and great for the office. Love it. And you look gorgeous in it!


Loving everything about this outfit. Outfit works well with and without the coat. You're pretty crazy to brave the cold with bare legs for this pictures! I love the print on the top, it's quite unique. I noticed you didn't mention your necklace. Stunning. Green is one of my favorite colors.

I love the patterned blouse with the neutral color skirt :D


Your silk cami and skirt go so well together. It is a pretty blouse to wear to welcome spring :)
