How was your weekend? Mine was full of home projects – I painted the foyer and did some decorating, as well as general straightening room by room

Everything has been a little topsy-turvy since my vacation with unfinished projects hanging around until I had time to complete them. Slowly, but surely they are coming together…

I also took photos at a bridal shower Saturday afternoon. It was decorated beautifully and everyone had a fabulous time. It was fun to try my hand at a different kind of photography than my norm. I am looking forward to the editing process and seeing the final outcome. Hopefully the bride will be happy and enjoy reliving the event!

One of the things I used to struggle with, and didn’t realize it at the time, was styling clothes in my closet in more than one way. If I bought a top to go with a certain pair of pants or skirt then that was all I ever wore it with. The concept of shopping my closet or mix and matching simply never crossed my mind. What a wasted opportunity! With that in mind I thought I would begin regularly sharing one item styled multiple ways to help you begin considering more options for your own wardrobe.

Today I am styling a cute and colorful tee I recently picked up from my local Gap Factory Outlet. Sometimes I think tee shirts are underrated and might be relegated to only being worn with jeans or shorts. I happen to love how easy it is to dress up a tee with skirts or under a cardi or blazer for work. I wore this striped tee with jeans and Converse for a (really) casual Friday look last week. It didn’t take much effort to elevate the same tee with a simple pencil skirt, change of accessories and shoes.

I was planning to get all creative and share some flat lays featuring other easy styling options, but time slipped by way too quickly this weekend. So, here are a few more ideas:
Denim jacket, tee, khakis, and flats tee, floral skirt, sandals tee, yellow ankle pants (or color of your choice) and wedges
I am pretty excited thinking about the possibilities of things I can share here. It is certainly going to help me look at my wardrobe with fresh eyes. Let me know if there is a specific item in mind you would love to see styled in a few different ways and I will be sure to accommodate. Meanwhile, I hope you have a wonderful Monday!
