Maybe the Last Chance for Boots!

DSC_4806With the recent heat wave here in Atlanta, this may actually be the last chance for boots this winter. In short, I am so not looking forward to the summer.

Today’s fit consists of all items from my current wardrobe; a few pieces previously showcased on the blog.  Today I wore the caramel colored boots  to add a little color to the black & grey.  Who says brown can’t be used as a color pop or worn with black?? Any color can be used as a pop of color piece if it is coordinated correctly. The t-shirt was was a must have because of the words…

“Love all

Trust a few

Do wrong to none”

– William Shakespeare

Make good use of the clothing in your closet utilizing the remix method.  Of course, make purchases when necessary since it is imperative to keep your closet up date & looking fresh.  If your older clothes actually look old, worn out or damaged, please get rid of them.  Now is the perfect time for a closet make-over as spring is drawing near.

Most of my outfits consist of items that have been part of my wardrobe & the exact items may no longer be available, but note similar ones can be found at the retailers mentioned in my previous blogs.  Please do not hesitate to email me at for inquires or tips on how to successfully remix your clothes, revamp your wardrobe or make a seasonal transition.

A Little Grey Dress

Well, it seems like the weather in Georgia is warming up.  Not looking forward to the heat coming our way, tired of the rain & happy for some sun.  Savoring the few days of winter weather before the heat wave.


As you can see this blue jacket has become a favorite item in my wardrobe. This fit is a combination of items from my current wardrobe & new items.  The sweater dress & tights are new; purchased as birthday gifts to myself last month.  Now that we’re in March I cannot purchase anything for myself as per my February 12, 2015 post: every other month no unnecessary spending.

 IMG_0756The dress was darling & I had to purchase it.  Wearing dresses isn’t really my thing, however, I am venturing out of my comfort zone slowly, but surely.

Blessed In Denim On Denim :-)

DSC_3792Chilly, casual Friday called for a denim on denim ensemble. All items worn are from my current wardrobe.  Absolutely nothing new, fairly new or somewhat new.  Jeans & shoes I had completely forgotten about. DSC_3782 Let’s remember belts don’t just serve the purpose of holding our britches up, but they serve as accessories too.  Use them whenever possible. Loops aren’t always needed a belt to be worn. Oh yeah, I have a thing for skulls.


Notice anything different about the photos???? Let me share how styledbyJReid has been blessed with a new photographer, Molly Wood, who can be reached via email at She’s a talented photographer, great at her craft & a pleasure to work with.  I am honored to work with such a talented young lady.

Of course, I must give credit to my 10 year old that is always willing to photograph his mother whenever asked utilizing our Apple products.  I am thankful for my little man.
