Mix it UP


Today I want to talk about mixing it up. You don’t have to have a closet full of clothes to have a different outfit every day. A few basic pieces mixed with versatile accessories can take you through a week (maybe even two!) without repeating an outfit. Sometimes just changing one piece of an outfit can give it a whole new look!

I’m showing today’s outfit two ways, but there are at least three other items in my closet I could have used (denim skirt, black walking shorts or white denim skirt). The printed tank is a recent purchase from Target, and the khaki pants were purchased this weekend at the LOFT outlet store (I absolutely love the LOFT! 40% off everything this weekend meant some really great pieces were added to my closet!) I love how different the tank top looks when paired with the jeans and khakis. One way to change up a look is to add an accessory – like the hot pink bubble necklace and light blue cuff bracelet in the second outfit.

This week’s challenge: Take one or two pieces from your closet and see how many different ways you can wear them. Think outside the box! Pair a printed tank or t-shirt with a chambray shirt, cardigan or blazer you’ve never tried before. Add a scarf to a plain shirt for a pop of color and interest. Check out Pinterest for some great outfit ideas and tips on tying scarves!

Shopping tip: Target has some great scarves on clearance right now. Their basic t-shirts and tank tops are also on sale. Check it out!
