Dress Refresh.

Some days I go into my closet and just can't shake the feeling that everything looks the same, and I am bored. For me it's not realistic to keep up on all of the latest fashions and trends, so I have to refresh older styles to make them seem new to me and more current in fashion. Maxi dresses are a great way to create multiple outfits, because they automatically double as a skirt with little effort. The key to layering with a maxi is to have at least one structured piece over top to give you some shape. You don't want the layers to just keep piling on so you look frumpy. The belted vest definitely helped, because I was able to emphasize my waist while still wearing multiple layers.  I was amazed at how many compliments I got on this 'skirt' because it's over a year old an I've worn it dozens of times, but with a little love it seemed brand new!

Easy Breezy.

I like starting the week off in an easy breezy, casual outfit. Something simple and classic that can help act as a blank slate for the upcoming week's fashions. I find the less time I spend deliberating an outfit the more I tend to like it looking back. Sometimes it's nice to not think about what you're going to wear and throw on a basic, versatile shirt you know works and be done with it. I love this mixed fabric white button down I just picked up from Ann Taylor, it's knit with a starched, chiffon color, and back yoke, easily to be dressed up or down.

Arabian Nights.

Whenever I'm getting dressed for the day I usually have an idea in my head of what I want my outfit to look like. (I'm sure we all do.) Half the time things don't turn out the way I imagine and other times, I'm so close, but there is just one piece I wish I could swap out for something else. Yesterday I really wanted to wear this Jen's Pirate Booty poncho and thought it would look amazing with a flare jean and chunky sandals. Well, to my disappointment these flares are just too short to be worn with heels, and I felt stalky wearing them with flat sandals. The solution? To change things up from skinnies I took the excess flare portion of the pants and rubberbanded them into knots, then I just tucked the knots up into the pants. Creating a harem style effect and channeling my inner Aladdin.

Leopard Sherbert.

To freshen up a basic animal print I like to pair it with bright pops of color. And what better for Spring than bold colorblocking?!  Color throughout my clothes but all neutrals in my accessories to keep the look pretty classic overall.
