New Year, New You: Wardrobe Re-Invention

A friend recently asked me to help re-imagine her wardrobe. As we talked about her look, these elements seemed important to her:

-Simplicity
-Ease
-Mix and Match
-Handmade or Second Hand for Eco Friendliness

And these are my ideas of what could work well for her:

-Basics with a twist
-Garments that do Double Duty
-Nautical Touches
-Neutral, go with anything solids
-Faded Colors that feel worn from sun, wind and salt
-Drape
-Stolen from Boyfriend's Closet

See my "inspiration board" live on Etsy over here!

This beautiful bag has a nautical feel but is neutral enough to work with every outfit. The detachable straps turn it into an instant clutch!

The sportiness and versatility of this top couldn't be easier.


I can't ever resist a sprinkle of sparkle. How perfect is this locket?
A little inspiration for the weathered color palette.

Who can resist the spunkiness of a pair of well loved cowboy boots?

This lightweight cardigan is perfect for Hawaii, but it's also a great example of "basic with a twist". Look how sexy that skin becomes peeking through the little keyhole between the cardi and simple white tank! Beautiful. And not an accessory in sight.

A dress you can wear 7 ways? That says "working wardrobe" to me!

These sweet little flats add just the right dash of vintage meets urban. I love mixing metallics since they go with ANYTHING.
This dreamy photograph had all the perfect shades of color. Don't you love the faded romance of it?
