I really love this challenge because I love seeing how versatile a piece can be.
I read in Jessica Quirk’s book “What I Wore‘ that when shopping, she always makes sure that she can wear an item several ways before buying it.
I’ve also heard from readers who say when they shop they buy an entire outfit- but then later- they don’t know how to use the separate pieces from the ‘ready made’ outfit with other items in their closet.
One thing I learned (and shared) from my 30 for 30- was that you really don’t need a ton of clothes- you just need some great versatile pieces that can be worn several ways.
So, on that note- today’s staple piece is my light blue denim shirt. I’m showing it plain (and tucked in ) on the right- just paired with darker denim jeans and leopard flats. This is a look I would have NEVER tried a few months ago, but it actually quite stylish (or so I’m told!)
But, you know me- I like to layer. I like to be warm, I like the rule of 3… so here goes:
My first version is untucking the shirt and adding my faux fur vest, the one I call ‘the dog’. Notice my dog checking out my other dog! I think she’s jealous!
My next look is my vintage sweater, this is a great cozy, weekend look!
My last look is with a scarf and boots.
