Tied Up

Hi friends! Sorry I have been MIA for the past week. I've been a bit tied up.

Between work picking up to crazy levels, and traveling in one weekend through six states to run a marathon and attend a friend's wedding, Messy Jess C., unfortunately, fell by the wayside, but now I'm back.

Speaking of being tied up, how do you like my newish tie blouse from Forever XXI? I feel so fancy with my big bow, and I feel smart for not spending a fortune on my top.

I ended up pairing this top with a black cardigan for work, but I this top would also go well with a pair of jeans for a more casual look. I'm trying to be better about purchasing clothes that I can wear in two different ways - in this case, for work and weekend.

What is your advice for getting the most mileage out of your clothes?

  1. Love that top! I have been trying to be more intentional about my shopping too! I try to think of 3-4 outfits for an item before I buy it. That lends itself to a more remixable closet.
