3-in-1

Standard

1dress3waysThere’s nothing I love more than coming up with multiple ways to wear my favorite items.  That’s why I thought it would be fun to share a post where I did just that-create a look for three different occasions with one dress.

Church  churchdress4bownecklaceThis first look I put together for church. I love the matchy-matchiness of the sparkly necklace with this dress. They really look like they were made for each other!  I decided to go all in with the blue accessories, from my sunglasses all the way down to my feet.churchdress2bluewedgeheelschurchdress1I’ve had these blue wedge sandals for years and don’t wear them a whole lot anymore, so I couldn’t resist the opportunity.blueshades

Workworkdress2workheelsFor my work look, I had to add a cardigan to adhere to our “no tanks allowed” dress code.  I chose to play up the blue in the dress again by covering up with this striped cardigan, and I also really like the way the patterns compliment each other. workdressaccessoriesworkdressI thought the blue sweater and blue heels might be a little over the top, so I switched it up with coordinating camel belt and heels instead.

I’ll let you in on a little secret…on a lot of Mondays, you will find me in the same outfit I wore to church the day prior.  It eases a little of the Monday stress if I have something ready that I already know works!

Care to share any of your 3-in-1 tips?  Which version of mine is your favorite?

Thanks for stopping by, and have a great week!

Hello, friends!  I’m up north with my beloved visiting family this week.  We’re driving into Chicago today for some shopping and yummy eats, and my aunt and I are also going to see the Blue Man Group!  Have you ever seen a show?  I hear they’re pretty entertaining, so I’m really looking forward to it.

I wanted to share a simple red, white, and (mostly) blue look in honor of upcoming Independence Day.  This skirt is an old favorite of mine.  I don’t have a big selection of red, but the subtle red and blue embroidery make it perfect for an understated 4th of July look.

We’ll be heading home on Saturday, so I hope to have some time to enjoy the pool, weather pending, and take in the local fireworks show.  What will you be doing for the 4th?  Whatever your plans, have fun, and be safe out there!

Check out some more of my favorite red, white, and blue picks below.  I’m loving the High Waist Nautical Shorts and the Chambray Romper, perfect for the 4th and beyond!

 

Spring Swing

Spring is officially in full swing!  Hallelujah!  While the temps aren’t quite where I’d like them to be yet (warm enough for bare legs!), the fact that, according to the calendar, winter is no mas just puts my brain in a happier place, and I’m so thankful I’ve been able to enjoy the warmth and sunshine the past couple weekends:)

Today’s look features one of my favorite things-print mixing!  Stripes are the easiest print to mix and match with.  Just keep your pieces in the same color families, and you’ve got an interesting new spin on your most basic pieces.

Today, I mixed stripes and florals, pulling them together with black, white, and mustard.  I’ll let you in on a little secret…This is actually a strapless dress, last seen here, hence the sweater layers;)

Check out the gallery below for more print mixing inspiration.  If you’re not a dress person, the same idea goes for striped tees or tanks, or you can swap the scarf for a pair of floral print heels, which are on my spring wish list.  I also came across several flat styles, and I’m pretty sure I need a pair of those as well!

Have a lovely Monday!

How often do you create an outfit that starts with the shoes?  Such was the case with this little red and leopard number.  I absolutely love these heels, but I have literally 2 tops that match them, so they don’t get worn very often:(  When I bought them, I must not have read the memo yet that says only buy if you can think of 5 outfits to wear them with, or some such nonsense like that…

Seriously, though, that’s a good rule to shop by, but sometimes a girl just want what she wants.  Know what I’m sayin’?

If you’re in the market for some ruby slippers of your own, I’ve linked up all, shapes, styles and price points below for your browsing pleasure.  Have a great weekend girlies!

Oh, P.S.  If you got any styling tips for me and my red high heels, I’d love to hear them:)

Yesterday, I shared that one  of the reasons I like day dresses so much is that they don’t take much thought when putting an outfit together.  You can throw one on and go or add a few fun extras, like funky shoes or a statement necklace to jazz it up more if you like.

Today, I’m adding another reason, and that’s how easily they can be transitioned from season to season.  Layering on tees, scarves, tights or leggings, and cardigans are simple ways to get use of dresses all year round.  I wore this one in the summer with a yellow tank top and sandals.  In the fall, I switched to knee-high boots, a jean jacket, and colorful beads, and today, I’m warming it up even more with black tights, leather boots and a colorful cardigan.

My sister talked me into this cardigan when we were Christmas shopping last month, and I’m so glad she did:)  I’ve worn it a couple times to brighten up a black ensemble, but I got creative and matched up the reds for a double dose of polka dots! I love the way it turned out, so thanks for the encouragement, Jacqui!

Cardigan: Old Navy, old / Dress: from White Plum (no longer available), this summer, love this sweater dress option for fall or winter! / Heels: Old Navy (sold out online), this fall

How about a #tbt to Monday when it was like 80 degrees!  Perhaps we could rewind and hit repeat…not on the Monday part, though.  That wouldn’t be cool.  I took advantage of the heat and the opportunity to wear this aztec print dress.  I think the color, burnt sienna (I googled it, so what), keeps it seasonally appropriate, and the turquoise cardigan and leopard heels cover up enough but still keep it fun!

No doubt I can continue wearing this dress even after the temps drop for good with thick tights and knee-high boots.  The same can be said for all of the great aztec dress options below, all under $50!

As much as I hate to admit it, fall is just around the corner, so I’m planning on getting as much wear out of my neons as I possibly can!  When I saw this dress on Whiteplum.com, I just could not pass it up, and I got so many compliments on my tan when I wore it.  Note to self: Neons make a quickly fading tan look fan-freakin-tastic!

Today, I’m heading to Nashville for a fun getaway.  Tyson is playing in a golf scramble Saturday with his dad for a company event, and I will be poolside freshening up the aforementioned tan! We also plan on hitting the town Saturday night, so follow me on Instagram to see where I end up;)  Click hereInstagram Or look me up later @jingerscloset.

Have a great weekend ya’ll!
