A Little Surprise!!

Hey guys!!

 today you’re in for a treat! Emily from the blog The Sweetest Thing is here to share on how she makes her wardrobe go a long way!! If you already read her blog you know how she already looks great all the time by using some of her main staple pieces. 

Hi Everyone!
I am Emily, author of The Sweetest Thing Blog. Here’s a little about me: I’m a 25 year old newlywed from Arkansas. My husband, John, is in his third year of medical school. He’s from Columbus, OH. (We met in college!) After the complete of my MBA, I moved to Virginia to be with John as he was following his dream of becoming a physician. Insert blogging. Living away from home and picking up and moving wasn’t easy so blogging became not only an outlet, but a hobby. Now, insert, Kiki. I’ve made some wonderful friends via The Sweetest Thing blog.

Kiki graciously invited me over to share with you all how I make the most of my closet…
I did a post a few weeks ago called “Let’s Talk Finance”… this post was composed of what I consider as “Investment Pieces”.
When I say investment, I am referring to spending money on a product that you will wear to death! I am a firm believer in wearing the same article over and over and over.
Two reasons for this:
1. The Medical School Budget
2. There are too many people in this world that don’t have food/shelter/clothing so why should I own a bunch of "stuff" that isn’t being used.

Making the Most Out Of Your Closet
1.      Layer.
Some may think of “layering” as a trend, but, I see it as a staple. My favorite way to make a plain outfit a little more unique is to add a layer.
2.      Splurge on pieces that can be worn year round.
Buy quality pieces that can be worn year round. It’s easy to find cutesy summer dresses cheap – so budget your wardrobe.
3.      Think outside of the box.
Have fun and be creative. Matchy-matchy isn’t a rule anymore. Mix prints.

1.      In the first photo I am wearing a spring/summer dress… but put a long sleeve button down underneath.
2.      The second photo is from NYE… I used an old Old Navy sequin tank top that I wear year round – and put a blouse I found at Goodwill underneath it to dress it up and winter-fy it!
3.      In the third photo, I am wearing a chambray dress (chambray matches everything!) with a gingham button down beneath.
I hope this inspires you and helps you think differently about you "old" clothing. I have a faux fur vest and a plaid shirt that I seriously wear weekly. I always pair something different so that no one ever notices that I wear the same thing over and over.

Come visit The Sweetest Thing sometime!

 She’s great right?! If you don’t already follow her I suggest that you do! Her blog might just be my favorite! I look forward to reading her posts. I even got my co-worker hooked on it.

I hope you guys have a fabulous day!
