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.
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.
