One of the best fashion tips I can give is to encourage everyone to mix and max “sensibilities”. It is the perfect way to add pizzaz to a ‘fit. Like wearing a cardigan with a wedding dress or a casual top with a dressy skirt, contrasting dressy and casual (i.e. sensibilities) is a great way to add visual interest.
Try it, gals!

I like to look for new, unique ways to style my Celebration Jacket. When I last wore it, I felt like the styling was pretty expected and, dare I say, ordinary (Gasp!). Let me just say, Clarabelle is anything but ordinary. So I decided to re-mix the Celebration Jacket with unexpected colors and patterns. It think it worked out alright. Who knew a gold sparkle jacket could be so versatile?
Also, I want to give a major shout out to my creative directing husband for finding a dry location to shoot this look on a rainy, disgusting day. It might look like I am out on the sidewalk, but really I am under scaffolding. This kid’s got skillz, y’all.

For this particular outfit post, I made the executive decision to rummage through my (disaster of a) closet and find every super trendy item I own – then I put it on. The results are below.

This is one of my favorite skirts ever. It is so much fun to wear!

You don’t have to buy new clothes to create a fresh look. Every item in this look is at least sixteen months old (except for the jewelry and the sunnies). That scarf I’m wearing is almost ten years old! The skirt is one of my all time favorites. I just don’t wear it often because it gets so wrinkled and I don’t enjoy ironing! Lame.
So ladies, sometimes those “I have nothing to wear!” nights just require a little creativity.

I always get really excited to do outfit posts. I realized once I put these photos up that I did not put on a stitch of jewelry in my excitement to show off my new neon skirt. My bad.
Also, please excuse my veiny hands and feet. It was so hot out, my body was trying to cool itself off — hence the crazy veins.

This dress is a great example of my favorite silhouette. I like an a-line silhouette so much. I find that it is universally flattering and timeless, too!
This white frock is certainly a new favorite.

So you may remember how I wanted to insert more color into my wardrobe in 2012. I bought this dress from H&M that is perfect for work or to go out. I am really excited for Spring when I can wear it without the jacket. The dress has such a great shape! I will be sure to blog it, in full, once the weather gets warmer and I can really show it off. Until then, here’s a little preview of my new green dress.

This year, I had a $20 budget for my holiday dress.
I decided on the same idea for the holidays as I had during wedding season. I plan to wear my holiday dress to every holiday function I have. Luckily, I found this white number at H&M for $25 (only five bucks over my budget!). So I got it — it’s perfect for every holiday function and I haven’t looked back.
I am also kicking around the idea of wearing this number to my rehearsal dinner. But that might be taking my frugality a bit too far.

There are a few fashion rules that don’t make any sense — so I completely ignore them. One of these silly rules is not mixing black and brown (which I am doing below) the other is not wearing your summer whites after Labor Day. I love my white sun dresses so I like to wear them as much as I can — and with the perfect amount of layering, a white sun dress can make the perfect Fall piece.
p.s. Don’t mind the pigtails. That is how I air dry my hair so it doesn’t turn into a ball of frizz.
