When I wrote the post on maximizing your wardrobe for last Friday I was looking all over the place for the outfit photos shown in this post. I couldn’t find them anywhere. Of course, Murphy’s law applies you find them later.

Anyhow, these photos show another example how I get more wear out of my closet by looking at an item not only one way. Since we are at it and fall is just around the corner, here some other inspirations on how to wear the top in different ways.

Do you wear your clothes always the same way or do you try to switch them around? What are your ideas to get the most out of your clothes? Send me an email as I am curious about your ideas.

Lanae shared a post of different ways to style chambray in 11 different ways using inspiration from actresses and other fashionistas and collages to share her style tips. You can check out these tips here. I know I was inspired by these tips for styling chambray for the fall and year round.


I was inspired by Katie’s story on how this outfit came about or how rather certain items of this wardrobe survived certain almost “disasters.” I just love the pattern mixing too. Read the post here.


Sarah linked up a post on home schooling. Rachel felt some of these tips will allow for a smoother and more enriching time for time with her 6 year old when she comes home from school and needs homework time.


Sarah linked up a post on 3 ways to style a graphic tee. I can’t wait to try a graphic tee with a pencil skirt now. See her post here for more style tips.
