For starters, I wanted to give you all a special thank you for being so incredibly patient with me this week with my lack of blog posts and random post times. We haven’t had internet all week, and it’s been quite the experience trying to get it back up and working.
I’m currently sitting in Starbucks, sipping on some coffee and trying to get a little work done before heading to get my sweet girls. Despite the craziness of my week, I wanted to share with you a look I created for my sweet friend, Liz’s blog, Accessory Jane. First of all, if you’re not following her, you need to – she has such a sweet heart, the most precious daughter, own’s her own jewelry business, and is grounded in her Faith in all that she does.
Anyway, last week I had the privilege of styling an outfit and guest posting on Accessory Jane. If you missed my guest appearance you can check it out here! I’ve shared a bit of the fun here today, but to see the full look definitely check out the full post on her blog here!
Although we had a cold front blow through Dallas this past weekend, temperatures have already warmed back up to the 60s making it tricky to know quite how to dress. Living in a city where the temperature can fluctuate daily, I’ve had to learn how to make my wardrobe staples work for warm weather and cold weather!
but it got me thinking that everyone can benefit from learning how to make your wardrobe wearable in more than one climate.
While we may be shifting from “winter” to “spring” by the day down here in Texas, others of you will make a more gradual shift from winter weather to warmer temps. Either way, when you’re investing in clothing, it’s good to have the mindset of how can you get the most wear out of your outfits. Not only will you have fun styling different looks, but you’ll save money while doing so!
For example, when I bought this sweater I couldn’t wait to pair it with a cozy scarf and jeans, but it has so many more options than just this one look! I can layer it over a shirt or wear it under a fur vest for those rare, but freezing cold days in Dallas. Then, when it warms up, I can pair it with white lace shorts, lighter denim, or a fun skirt!
My advice for taking pieces from winter to summer would be to stick with solid colors. It will be easier to transition a solid color as opposed to a trendy print. Let your accessories do the talking instead!
