One Outfit | Three Ways

Happy Friday!! I hope you've had a great week! Ours was the usual...work, school, laundry, talent show practice, running late for most everything, crap-whats-for-dinner...you know the drill! Mr. SP and I are taking a little break from the routine, and sneaking away early tomorrow for the long weekend. It's been in the 70s here all week, and the forecast where we're going is single digits!!! Looks like I won't be packing light! Can you guess where? I'm sure I'll post some snaps on Instagram, so follow me there if you want.

For today's dose of Friday Fashion, I'm sharing another basic outfit styled three ways. This time of year, it's hard to deny the ease of a sweater and jeans, and many times, I'm reaching for the same exact sweater and jeans! But with a few layer and accessory swaps, no one is the wiser!

This post could also fall under the Rule of Three, since in each outfit, I've layered on two, three, and even four items, not only to make it more stylish, but to create different looks. Let's start with the base outfit...jeans and a sweater. Totally cute on it's own, but we don't leave things alone around here!

{ONE}

The first look is straight from my 'Transition to Fall' formula...add a scarf and boots, with a shot of fun jewelry.

I accidentally left this bag at the park, and when I came back it was gone! #sob #myownfault Since I carry it constantly, I reluctantly went online to order another. The bad news is it's sold out. The good news is there's a new, slightly smaller size, and I love it even more! #silverlining It's still big enough for a wallet, phone, lipstick and sunglasses...basically the perfect cross body size!

Fit Tip: This is a lovely sweater, with just enough cashmere to make it feel luxury, but not so much that it's pricey. In fact, it's on sale for under $50, and available in tons of colors! I love the v-neck version, too. I sized up for a more relaxed fit and room to layer, but my usual size fit perfectly, as well.

For a second look, I double-layered with a gingham shirt and quilted vest. Just imagine the possibilities with a solid sweater like this...chambray shirt and plaid vest, white shirt and utility vest, and if you're daring, try a plaid shirt and striped vest! (The idea of that one just gave me a giddy shiver!)

Pairing similar hues really allows the striped bag to shine, and of course a little leopard...because I think every outfit is cuter with a shot of leopard.

Fit Tip: These jeans are so soft and comfy, they feel almost like leggings...except you don't have to cover your lady bits. The higher waist means no accidental crack-shots either! #grownuppants

Style Tip: My bag is the Savannah Tote, and it's chock-full of pockets with a zipper close. You can customize your pattern, color and monogram style...and they have the cutest Spring collection of new patterns to choose from!

The final look has similar layers with a plaid shirt and blazer, but dressed up for work or date night with heels and pearls.

Style Tip: When layering, make sure each piece is peeking out somewhere. Except if one of your layers is thermal underwear...we don't need to see that. Well, unless it's cute thermals!

The Craft Closet (of my dreams) Reveal!

Happy hump day, friends, and thank you so much for your sweet words on our {Date Night Style} post yesterday! My son was beaming from all the comments, too!

If your knees get weak at the mere mention of labels, today's post is for you. If your breath hitches at the sight of paints arranged in beautiful rainbow order, this post is for you. If your heart skips a beat when there's a place for everything, and everything's in it's place, this post is most definitely for you. And if you get heart palpitations just stepping foot in The Container Store...well then, this post might just send you over the edge!

Because not only did I overhaul my Office closet from top to bottom with one of my favorite stores, but I got to do it with one of my favorite people, the Master Organizer herself. With nothing but coffee and tacos to fuel us on, Jen and I holed up for two days sorting, labeling, stacking, and high-fiving, until we had the craft closet of our dreams. Seriously, angels sing every time I walk in.

So for you organizing junkies, grab a paper sack, and read at your own risk!
