wishlist - 2

The key to building an efficient wardrobe is finding pieces that can be re-worked into multiple outfits.  To accomplish this, a productive exercise when shopping is to think about what you can pair back to the item you’re eyeing – whether it be with something that exists in your closet or one that you need (i.e., a good pair of denim!).  If you can create 3 – 5 outfit ideas in your head on the spot, this item has potential for a lot of wear (which will also help you determine if it’s worth the investment)!  I recently made this fall wishlist post which included key seasonal pieces like a playful sweatshirt and leather skirt.  Here are four outfit ideas (there are much more!) styled from the edits adding accessories and basics to complete the look!  Your closet doesn’t need to be busting at the seams with endless items.  Always remember, less is more!  Strategizing your wardrobe will not only help you save space and money, but will force you to think about purchasing pieces that you love thus will go the distance.  Happy shopping ya’ll!  xx jenny

♥ fall wishlist ♥

This weekend marks the unofficial end of summer which means fall is here ladies!  My wishlist has been brewing and I wanted to share because it includes a few key pieces to stock up on.  Although I’ll likely not purchase everything, hence the word, “wish”,  a version of each will certainly make it into the rotation!  What’s on your list?  Maybe you even have some of these items hanging in your closet already?  Be sure to join me here to check out how I style these throughout the season!  And show me how you do too by tagging me on instagram @yoursoulstyle, also using the hashtag #yoursoulstyle.  Let’s inspire each other!

Next week I’ll show you how to mix and match these key pieces to get a plethora of outfit options!  Stay tuned!  Have a great long weekend!  xx jenny

surf-chic: part 2

the man repellerPiggy-backing on this post from yesterday, here’s another take on surf chic.  All white from head-to-toe wreaks of breezy beach-style, but the second layer adds just enough polish for the office.  Plus – as far as shoes go, you can’t get any more comfortable than Birkenstocks.  Lose the blazer and throw on a red lip for after work cocktails.  Shop it here….
