What to wear? Part 4

It has been a few days since my last post! I recently found out that I am expecting my 2nd baby, and for the past week or so I just haven't felt like doing anything. Back to my 'What to Wear' series already!

I decided to do a little online searching for my next 'outfit.' Since I am pregnant, it is a little annoying to pick out something that I won't be able to wear but it is still fun to look.

I really like the idea of a cross body bag with flat shoes. They just seem to compliment each other. Since the outfit is pretty neutral, I decided to pick out a bracelet and ring with a pop of color. I sure wouldn't mind getting my hands on this outfit. Guess it will have to wait until next spring!!

White Hudson Jeans
Gorjana Chloe Stud Earrings
Hive and Honey Cardigan
Kate Spade Hot to Trot Bracelet
Marc by Marc Jacobs Stripe Dome Ring
Metallic Saddlebag
Arturo Chiang Sandal

Everything except the bag (gap) is from Piperlime. Big shock! It is my new favorite!

What to wear? Part 3

Here is my third outfit with the shirt still being the main piece. I decided to leave the shirt out with a belt around it. (The shirt is quite...full. It needs something to hold it in place). I threw an olive green cardigan over it and swapped out my jeggings for my ripped skinny jeans. I am wearing the same shoes as in Part 1 of this series. My hair was up the past two posts because it just happened to be a dirty hair day. But hey, at least you can see the little earrings my husband picked out for me! If you don't know Tim, then you should know that he does not like picking out ANYTHING for me. He is always afraid that I will not like it.

If you have something sitting in your closet and you aren't sure what to wear with it, give me a call. Chances are, there is something to pair with it. Sometimes it just takes another set of eyes! Check out my website to learn about the fashion consulting that I do!

What to wear? Part 2

Last night I went to dinner with a friend and decided that it was the perfect opportunity to put together my second outfit, with the shirt as the focal piece. (See previous post for a full picture of the shirt).

I didn't change much. I changed the shoes, tucked in the shirt, added a belt and ditched the blazer for a motorcycle jacket.

This is my favorite of the two so far. What do you think?

What to wear? Part 1 in a series...

I bought this shirt about a year ago, and it has been sitting in my closet ever since with the tags still on it. I don't know about you, but every now and then I will find something that I love, knowing that I don't really know what to wear with it. I don't think that is a bad thing, however. I will pick up pieces here and there knowing that eventually I will find something to go with it. This shirt actually reminds me of the button down, sleeveless shirts that I wore back in the 90's. (Thankfully, this one is quite different from the ugly printed shirts I wore).

Yesterday I decided that I was going to wear this, no matter what. I looked through my closet and pulled out a blazer that I picked up a month ago at LOFT. I was actually excited when I realized I could put an outfit together around this one shirt. So that got me thinking...could I put together more outfits? I actually have another outfit, quite similar, in mind. I will post a picture of it (once I wear it, of course).

I am going to do a series of outfits based on this one shirt. I may not own all of the pieces, but it will be fun to see how many different outfits I can put together with one shirt as the focal piece.

Be on the lookout for this series to come! I actually love this idea so much, I plan on doing more in the future!

Gotta love a sale!

Victoria's Secret has this lovely wedge sandal on sale for only $29!!! I bought this shoe in white years ago, and I wear them every spring/summer. I decided to get these in black since I love my white pair so much. I needed something 'in between' my flat black sandals (casual) and my 5 inch heels (dressy). These are great because you can put them with shorts, skirts, dresses and even skinny jeans.
