One tip I’ve found for getting the most out of the item you purchased and may be hesitant to wear is to style the heck out of it when you first get it. Style it until you find several ways you like it, and then when you’re pinched for time you’ll feel freer to grab it out of your closet because you know what you like and don’t right off the bat. I follow this rule myself and it always makes a difference. Allllllwaaaaaysssss!
Did I say always? 🙂
Now for the outfit details…
I love the simplicity of this look. Definitely still on the classic side, but it’s a look that won’t go out of style, and I updated it with the boots and bag that are more modern.
Which brings up another point I’ve learned over the years on updating old clothing. If you are on a budget with what you can spend (which we all are) most of the time the easiest way to make things look fresh is to update shoes and bags.
Sometimes this can get expensive but you can get creative with finding your favorite designers and shopping second hand on places like Poshmark, or going to stores like DSW for you’re shoes.
For instance, I know that I have a love affair with Marc Fisher Ltd shoes, and I can find them both at Nordstrom Rack and DSW for a better price than buying at Nordstrom. I also love Vagabond Shoemakers and I can find them on Amazon or at Urban Outfitters where I can pay out over the span of two months using a program called Afterpay.
Knowing your most loved brands and sizing is work upfront but it has definitely paid off for me in the long run both in time and in money!
Fancy that :).

And that’s what I’ve got for now!
Let me know all you’re thoughts are on this three-in-one piece, what you think are priority items when wardrobe sprucing, and what you do to ensure that you will wear the new pieces you bring into your wardrobe?
so much love,
