To recap, my monthly closet series will feature 14 items, remixed into over a weeks' worth of outfits. My goal with this year long series is to help you build a versatile, stylish closet full of items that you love to wear. Each item is carefully picked to be both affordable, and relevant no matter what your age or occupation. The series runs every Monday, so be sure to check in for new outfits every week!
Today we are moving along with our "Boho Americana" May closet, styling outfits 5-8. I chose the great gray maxi dress to play around with-check out the four looks I came up with!
Outfit 5: Throwing a sweatshirt over the dress turns it into a two-piece look! Add flip flops to add to the casual, chillin'-on-the-weekend feel.
Outfit 6: Keep it simple on a hot summer day by adding just a great wedge sandal and clean-lined tote!
Outfit 7: Wrap a scarf around your neck for added warmth-the pattern on the scarf and the rose gold sandals help give this look a boho feel.
Outfit 8: For a classic look, layer a crisp parka over the dress, a pair of wedges and an arm of simple gold bangles.
I want to re-iterate something here, because you may be thinking "well these are all pretty simple changes, should they really count as four different looks?" My goal with this series is to be very realistic. Most of us don't have the resources (or even the desire) to have closets full of brand new items on a monthly basis. I for example, may buy one new dress like this for the summer, and wear it in lots of subtlety different ways to make it feel fresh to me. It's about simple and easy ways to make your closet work for you! I hope you are enjoying this and finding it inspiring, because that is why I invest my time here on this blog-to share ideas and inspire!
